I'm looking down the nose of a nice, quiet week. The only thing that is even on the calendar - besides baseball games, of course - is breakfast with my friend, Barrie, on Thursday.

But, I do need to do some warm prep. The local weather peops are threatening us with warm weather very soon. They are saying 80's but more likely it will be low 70's. Still... that's moving me out of my fleece comfort zone. I wear a long fleece robe over my swimsuit every morning to the gym. I need to have a summer replacement at the ready. I planning on a long, loose kind of muumuu thing. Made out of patchwork fabric left over from my various tops. I have the patchwork fabric made. I just need to now make the muumuu. It will be, I hope, weeks yet before I need it but maybe if I get it all done and ready, Murphy's law will postpone the heat.

Also on my list today is litter box retooling. I keep the actual box and maintenance stuff in a lovely bench built for just that with a doorway hidden in the side. It's time for re-haul. I'm tossing the old box and replacing it with new - new box, all new litter. And then I'm going to thoroughly clean the inside of the bench and reassemble the whole thing in hopes that I won't have to repeat for a good long while.

I spent a good bit of yesterday examining various litter systems - mechanical as well as different substances and evaluating. For what-- cat, schedule, litter box real estate I've got and my level of maintenance tolerance, I decided to just stay with what I've got. Tall sided box with light weight clumping litter. Simple one (easy) cat solution.

Also today, I will need to walk. Generally, my tracker gives me enough step credits for my swim that I don't need to do that much walking to make my goal but for some reason it short changed me today. Since I'm perfectly happy to live with it when it errs in my favor, I think it's only fair that when the scales swing the other way, I pitch in. So I will be taking a jaunt to nowhere and back probably later this morning.

I just realized that I put my shirt on backward this morning. I thought I conquered this life skill about 67 years ago. Apparently not.
