Sunday and Another Critter to Feed

I got up early this morning although I slept well. I dressed and fed myself and the cats. Now I notice I am also feeding a raccoon. How do I handle that?

The kitten seems to be tolerating it. But I had better chase it away.

I went out to chase it away and  it must have had all it wanted of that cat food. It was gone.

Last night I discovered I had left my glasses on the end table at the hotel in Springfield.  Leslie called to see if they had found them but they said they had not been turned in by housekeeping. I will have to buy some new ones eventually unless they get turned in later. 

The coffeecake is in the oven and when I get it out and it is cooled, I will ice it. My little great granddaughters are in Topeka with the other grandparents and will not be at church. So it may be a smaller congregation this morning. I will probably have to give coffeecake away after church.

More later...

The coffeecake was cooled and I got it iced. I have groceries to take to church too. Leeann will distribute them to those she knows who are needy.

I imagine some of us will eat at "Just Us" today. We ate at Great China last week and we usually alternate those two locations.  I will leave for church at 8:30AM, I guess. I do need to go into Coffeyville to the ATM at the bank.  But that shouldn't take long. This is the week for my hair color and cut so I will need some money by Wednesday.

More later....

I left here about 7:30AM to go to Coffeyville to the bank before I went out to the church. I needed to get some money for Wednesday. I did that and then went on out to church. Bob was there and had already begun to get the coffee going. I cut the coffeecake and then soon Phyllis and Karan came.

As soon as the rest of the church school congregation arrived, we started the class. Soon the class was over and the rest of the congregation began coming. We had a nice, though small group but Karan had a good sermon and afterward three of us went to Just Us to eat lunch. Then I brought them back to the church to pick up their cars and I came on home.

I spent until 4:00PM getting the newsletters ready and sent out and those that go in the mail are out in the mailbox with the flag up. The Estes mailman will pick it up tomorrow. I also redid one of our congregational directories. Karan and I went over some changes that need to be made before I do any more for 2020. She also brought me back my leaf vacuum.

It 4:15PM now and I need to stretch awhile.I have sat here too long.

So more later...

I went out to Dollar General and bought a new wreath holder for my front door and hung the wreath. It is so cute. And speaking of cute, this is the latest photo my daughter posted on her facebook page.

And as she said in her post, "underneath that pile of puppies, is a mother." Poor Octavia. I am assuming she is the mother my daughter is talking about...although the beige colored puppies belong to Raven. The spotted ones belong to Octavia. But she mothers a bunch of them. At this point, there are 12 puppies and only five of them are actually Octavia's. Her's, of course, are Cowboy Corgis.   The beige ones are Corgis.

I went to bed at 9:00PM...very tired.

I can't figure out how you can get rid of the raccoon but not the kitties.
You might have to just pretend that it is just a really fat, ring tailed cat. Hopefully no skunks will decide to join in for breakfast at your house. Have any possums come to eat kitty food yet? When I was about 10 years old I had a pet possum and it absolutely loved Little Friskies dry kibbles.

It's fun to see your pictures of what cats and kittens are coming to eat at your house.
