A thousand chores... DONE!

I did not go out today. I did go down to the dumpsters 3 times so faux out. But, mainly I did house shit and a ton of it. The kitchen is clean, the laundry is done and folded and put away, a million little pick-this-up-that-has-been-out-for-a-week-and-put-it-where-it-belongs. I cleaned up the sewing room and organized the two projects going on there plus changed out the thread in the serger. I cleaned out the litter box.

And, can I just say, paying for non-cheap litter is so worth it. I have always bought pretty much the cheapest litter in the most convenient form factor. I don't like the bags, so no bags, but if it's got a handle and it's cheap, I bought it. Then I bought cheap light weight litter. And finally, last time I emptied out all the litter and scrubbed the box and its cabinet completely, I refilled with the high priced spread. (Specifically Fresh Step Lightweight Extreme Scented Litter with the Power of Febreze, Clumping Cat Litter.) It smells better, it really does clump more efficiently and she does not track half of it out with her every time. Worth the extra shekels for sure.

Not worth the shekels are the peaches and tomatoes we get around here even in peach and tomato season. The Japanese grocery has some of the highest quality produce in town. Yesterday I bought peaches there (only two - I knew the risk) and, sure enough, the flavor is reminiscent of peach but also of cardboard with a bitter after taste. It's ripe. It's just bad. I gave up on tomatoes entirely several years ago. I'm not a big fruits and veg person but this time of year, I'd about kill for a New Jersey tomato.
