How Did It Get To Be Friday Already
Then yesterday was grocery shopping, we hadn't been in a while so there was a lot that Mac had to carry upstairs. But it's done!
Today the morning was spent dusting blinds. Of all the dusting I do this is the one I hate the most. Even using a Swiffer duster that captures the dust I end up with dust in my eyes. I did all of the blinds downstairs except for the master bath and the 3 behind the couch in the family room---I didn't feel like shifting furniture or putting a ladder in the tub, they're high windows in the bathroom.
Still, I dusted 10 windows and way too much chair rail and baseboards. Now I feel itchy.
Earlier this week Mac did something rather special for me. Our grandfather clock hasn't been running in years, in fact I'd almost bet it's been 30 years since it ran. Well it's running now, I won't tell you how, but it involves duck tape and a couple pencils. He polished up the brass and set it to rights, except for the chime. The clock stands against a wall that backs onto our bedroom, ao no chimes. But I love to walk by and hear it ticking.
Earlier this morning we gave Miss Kitty her flea treatment, a few drops of medication on the back of her neck. Does anyone else's cat act as though you're trying to murder them when you do this? She is such a drama queen.
Beautiful day here except it's too hot, oh fall where are you.
