Biggie's stick somehow got to the bedroom yesterday. I tossed it off the bed before I went to sleep. I didn't see it this morning but I'm in the living room and I can hear him playing with it in the bedroom. I don't want to go look and spoil his fun. But it really tickles me how attached he is to that thing.

My grandmother's quilt was perfect last night. I'm sure she's having a proper smurk about that. The kittens crawled all over and under it to get settled but we did sleep well, until 5. Then we had a little mixed marshall arts situation for about 30 minutes and then we slept again for a bit. Even when they are pounding and bouncing on me while I'm trying to sleep, they are adorable. And of course when they make a kitten pile...

There is a soccer game assembling outside but the sun is out so my blinds are drawn and the A/C is working its magic. Which reminds me, I need to get on Amazon and leave a review or edit mine if I already did. This unit is really so good.

Baseball today and kitten enjoyment. A lovely Sunday ahead.

Pee patrol

Whenever I get up to go pee, I am followed by two little black kittens. I'm thinking they are collecting data and sending it somewhere - maybe to Alexa?

They do love the bathroom. Magical things happen there. Like when I hang up my suit to dry...

I got wind of breaded cut okra available at QFC on Broadway, so I went to look. On the way out of the neighborhood, I saw a Smart car being towed (you'd think they could just push it rather than use a whole tow truck).

They empty out all street parking for soccer and football games. A whole lotta sad people think "you WILL be towed" does not apply to them. Usually a very sad ending to any game. But, even I take it personally when it's Smart car 'family'.

Cut okra at QFC, not breaded. Sigh.

BUT... the sun was out and it was really hot and the air conditioning was, once again, failing. Almost not even cool-ish. As I'm sitting in traffic, contemplating the heat, I got a wild hair to hit the button for recirculating.

And... instantly... I was BLASTED by FRIGID air!!!! Makes no sense but I don't care. I fixed the air conditioning!! Yeah!

I'm sorry about the okra but thrilled at the trip result.

The best photo I did not get

The kittens have been off in other rooms napping while the Mariners lost Yet Another Game.

I got up and peeked into the bedroom and cracked up. The Smalls was lying in the very middle of the made up bed with his head on the pillow. Tiny little black thing zonked out in the big bed. My laugh woke him up.

I vow to never again get up without my camera. Ever.
