Thursday and Pouring Rain

The rain started about 1:30AM this morning and it has been pouring down rain ever since.

I will clean the apartment this morning and later on this afternoon pack for my stay at John and Leslie's. I got up shortly after 5:30AM this morning and have dressed and had my oatmeal and coffee. I will get my chai latte now.

I put some more food out for the cat and her kittens but it has rained too much for them to make it back for their breakfast. The bowl was empty this morning. So they made it before the storm began.

I lost another classmate this week. That makes two in August, We are fast dying off. We have 122 left. 144 are deceased and we have lost 26 who did not stay in touch with any of the four of us that have been the class locators and done the newsletters all these years.

More later....

I got the vacuuming finished and the vacuum cleaned up. I will wait for the filters to dry before putting it back together again. I am always amazed at how much dirt I pick up on Thursdays when I vacuum and wash the bare floors. Usually I take my shoes off and leave them by the door. Still I get a lot of dirt out of the carpet.

I asked Karen R. to call me when she gets up but she hasn't done that. I wanted to tell her what Suzanne told me last evening.

It finally stopped raining here a little before noon. 

The cat and her kittens must have come while Nancy and I were at brunch.  Their dish was empty, I filled and covered it again.  Nancy and I were entertained by Tim Perkins with tales about his episodes with his cows and bull. We stayed longer then usual as long as he was there.

More later...

I finally got a hold of Karen R. and she says she cannot even think about moving until she gets her three properties ready to list and sold. I texted Suzanne about her answer.

Leslie texted me about their plans for leaving tomorrow morning. She will put the dogs out if it is not raining and they will leave at 7:00AM. She says I can come out when I am ready. I have decided that since I get up at 5:00AM, I will just pack early in the morning after my breakfast of oatmeal.  It is 1:30PM now and I will finish dusting. That's all I need to do now.  I need to dust the bedroom.

It's 6:22PM now and I am preparing to take my bath at 7:00PM and  go to bed at 9:00PM. I will be up early in the morning, as usual, and get packed to go to John and Leslie's for the weekend.

It is still hot here. Astrid has two Corgis. One has 4 puppies. Money will go toward her college expenses.
