Enjoying the now

We have yet another not too hot and mostly cloudy day. And there's only 6 more weeks of Summer! This is my kind of weather. I know we will hit glaring sun and Africa hot soon but I also know that come Labor Day, we'll be at or near the end of it. I can manage this, I think. Gratefully.

Today's walk will be Costco. I need gas and toilet paper. The gas is at the far end of the parking lot so I'll park there and walk in and around. That's at block plus some. Also I have an Amazon return and I think I need more ice cream from Grocery Outlet.

Tomorrow is Take The Kittens To The Vet day. I'm not looking forward to it, particularly, but I do want to hear that they are healthy and fine. They spent about and hour in the bathtub this morning. I had a cheap shower curtain liner hung in there that I was going to rip down because it was ineffective and ugly. They mostly did the job for me. Then they wrestled the magnet out of the corner and used it for as the puck in a very lively hockey game that went on forever.

Now they are playing You Can't Catch Me! all over the living room.

I got them a little water fountain because it was massively reduced due to Prime Days and I always wanted one. When I set it up yesterday, The Smalls investigated and rejected it and Biggie just ignored it. This morning both of them have been drinking out of it. So yeah!

They are eating like crazy. I need to stop tomorrow and pick up more food. This time I will remember the coupons. The stuff I'm feeding them is what they fed them at the shelter. None of the places that deliver/ship pet food carries this brand. I'm not going to spend the next umpteen years schlepping cans of cat food. So clearly, we need a change at some point. But, I'll go one more round of this stuff at least.

I went to Amazon (no bananas today... what's up with that? if it's a prime day thing, I'll be glad when prime day is over!) and then on to Costco where nobody was! It was glorious. No waiting at the gas pump. There were parking spots available in the first row. There were two cashiers waiting for customers when I checked out. I got the car washed... no waiting! Let's hear it for the odd mid month Tuesday at Costco!

Then I do go get more ice cream. I think I have enough now. Maybe I'll get sick of it so when it really does get discontinued it won't hurt as much.

maju01 led me to some very excellent cat food options on Amazon so I ordered them and got my prime day 6% cash back. So I'm less devastated by the banana shortage now.

The boys have been busy all day. Now they are both in a pile in the bowl atop the scratching post. I think they are on the lookout for birds and other stuff in The Tree That I Hate.

I'm going to cash in on this by doing a little uninterrupted (I hope) crochet.
