Do they have rules?

Kitty games. Do they have rules? The boys are so busy today. Between breakfast and fountain drinking and making sure the dirty clothes bin is on its side after every time I right it, they are playing hide and seek and chase me. And then there's this one where Biggie pretends he's an only cat and is shocked when The Smalls attacks him so has to attack back and then they go together to check the state of the laundry bin.

I am going to empty that sucker this morning when I do laundry. I wonder what that's going to do to the dynamic.

When I swim, I only do the front crawl. No other strokes. And, honestly, my legs do not work hard. My fitness tracker only tracks arm movements so there's no real incentive for kicking. Except, if I spend some time kicking, my legs won't atrophy. So tomorrow I'm taking my kick board. Screw the tracker. Every 5th lap will be a kick board lap. I'm only doing 28 laps these days so we'll see how that works out.

Most of today is going to be a Stay Inside In Air Conditioning day. But, I think I'm going to venture out for a Costco walk timed for when their doors open. Also I need gas.

And,speaking of gas, I made the most delightful discovery today! I was wandering around Prime Video looking for stuff to watch and I discovered that they now have all six seasons of Corner Gas!!! Some seasons never made it to YouTube so I have yet to se them. I'm so excited.

But, first, laundry.

BEST new nap spot

Turns out, the preferred nap spot by a mile is the clean laundry on the bed. Biggie will not even get up. The Smalls has gotten up a couple of times to see if he's missing anything out in the rest of the condo and to get a snack but he goes right back. I mean the laundry wasn't even warm when they first discovered it. I have managed to get most of it folded and put away but Biggie is clinging to some pants that he will not let go of. He really gets attached to shit.

I got some good sewing done today. Two of my Mariner tops that I made, I made with pockets that were not deep enough. The joy of sewing is pockets wrong? Rip off and add pockets right! I also got a good start on making another top big enough for me. It needs pockets too. Tomorrow. The Smalls is good at opening the drawer with the thread in it. I think we will be repositioning said thread.

My Costco trip was also a success. Got in a nice walk and was home before it got frying hot.

No baseball tonight.

OMG, I just got up to go take an evidentiary photo of Biggie on the laundry and he finally had moved. From the pants he was lying on to the place mat that I hadn't put away yet.
