Day 92 - Bribery

In April, as we went into our second month of lock down, I made mystery treat bags to help get us through our evenings. In May, going into our third month of lock down, we had ice cream cones every evening. Here in June the stay at home orders in our state have expired. But we are still choosing to stay home for our evening treats - sugar free pudding and two graham crackers. Yep, it's getting more and more boring at home. And less and less safe "out there". The number of people crowding into spaces, ignoring social distancing, and the refusal of so many to wear masks makes it downright scary for us as high risk people right now.

So we stay home, only going out when we absolutely have to. Like today. It was another run to Simply Cats to pick up food and litter. As exhausted as I have been lately, I really wanted Mr. Ed to go with me. (He doesn't drive but it is good to have company in the car when you're so tired.)

How do you get him to leave the house? Food, of course. He's been missing those ice cream cones from last month. He's been watching lots of TV and seeing Dairy Queen advertising their summer Blizzard menu every day. Basically, he's been craving ice cream all the time!

Thankfully for him (and for me as the tired driver), Dairy Queen isn't out of the way when I'm heading to Simply Cats.

Sitting in the sun (finally, the sun!) and eating Blizzards in the parking lot made him a happy fellow.
He got his treat, kittens got their supplies, and I got a nap as soon as I got home.

Bribery works when it needs to.

Day 91 - Cat Naps

It might be the chilly and rainy weather we’ve been having lately, but I’ve been pretty darn tired this last week or so. I’ve had to force myself to get out of bed, force myself to shower, and force myself to get dressed. I’m doing the very minimal amount of things around the house because no matter how little I do I wear out fast. Not usually a napper, I find myself falling asleep in the recliner several times a day. I’d call what I’m doing cat naps, but others have dibs on the term.

Tomorrow we are supposed to have sunshine so hopefully no more cat napping for me. I’ll leave that job to the professionals, the true cat nappers.

Want to help contribute to the work I do with foster kittens? I have an Amazon wish list right here. These are the things I use again and again, year after year. With daily laundry and frequent cleaning, items have to be replaced often. I’d love anything you’d be willing to send my way!

Day 89 - Case of the Mondays

On this chilly and rainy day, every man, woman, and kitten in this house has a case of the Mondays.
Might just be best to sleep through the day.

Day 88 - NASCAR Sunday

I’ve mentioned before about how I wound up watching NASCAR for the first time. Here we are years later having watched dozens of races on TV and even a couple in person. As we watched the races from Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida on TV today, I’m reminded of our visit to the same racetrack a couple years back. It was Championship Weekend and the place was packed.

After experiencing a couple days of in-person racing we decided we much prefer watching the races from the comfort of our recliners.

I have someone sharing the recliner with me today who agrees. Although I don’t know if Sage is cheering the drivers on or trying to do the wave. Whichever it is, he’s excited!
