If you missed the start of this series, you can find it here. A lot of things will be the same or very similar.
Daughter got up and took over Couch Sittin Duty at 4:30pm. I was outside, looking at the sky. Sunset was a bust… no clouds. 13% humidity… definitely no clouds. It did get pretty at the very end. I was inside and I saw an orange glow, so I went to look. I’m glad I did cuz the Moon was out too.
Dinner, bath and Driving Miss Daisy went fine. The Boys were tucked in and Daughter was texted. I was looking at the calendar to see what time my Pump Fill appointment was for, and saw that it’s on Monday, not Friday. My poor brain has gone AWOL. Friday is Officially “FriedDay”
Younger called to say she and Partner were gonna come by and get their food cuz the fridge got fixed. Excellent! They had mail to pick up anyway. So I got to see Younger for about ten minutes. It was nice.
Around 9:30pm I heard something hit the floor hard in Ben’s room. I figured it was probably him, which meant he was awake and goofing around. UGH! I went and told him it was time for sleep. Then I went back to writing an e-mail that wound up taking me until midnight to finish cuz I kept konking out. I even “sleep wrote a message of some sort… ?⁴8⁸kz GSM ll Iyc,,cbbc “,”gDd##$●#zgzsys I wonder if it means anything. After sending the email, I took my med and made one last pit stop, then waited for sleep to claim me… forty-five minutes later. Murphy and his games…
Sophie Cat woke me a couple times, demanding love, but I pushed her away. Horrible, huh?! Not at 3am, unless I’m already awake. Sometimes I wonder who is the pet. The 6am alarm woke me and I dragged myself out of bed. Mornings like this I REALLY wish Daughter drove!
I let Zeus outside and yadda yadda yadda… I started waking Ben up at 6:30, when his meds were due. He was coherent enough at 6:45am to take them. Fifteen minutes late doesn’t matter. He got up a few minutes after that.
I spent the next half hour taking pictures of the sky, Georgie and Gracie, and occasional crow visitors. I made another picture video. Do you guys like the videos or prefer the Galleries? Inquiring minds want to know.
We went to get Daughter, came home and went to our designated places. Just a regular Driving Miss Daisy morning.
At noon I put Sven in the shower. He’s shedding and all around his mouth is skin that needs to come off. It looks like he’s wearing white lipstick.
No wonder he was in the front Pouting Corner… poor Sven. At 12:30, I woke shower-blissed Sven up, used the toothbrush to get some of the sheds off and took him outside for a photoshoot in the sunshine. He was very cooperative.
Daughter got up and took over Couch Sittin Duty at 2:15pm. I got Horizontal and fought the drowzies for the next forty-five minutes or so. I eventually won, (or lost) and was able to stay awake. WOOT?
Ben played with his chalk, Daughter watched her laptop, and I stayed awake… Horizontally. Now it’s time to get ready for sunset and see if it’s any cooler outside. It was pretty warm when Sven and I did his photoshoot. I expect sunset will be a bust again. 9% humidity means no clouds. Then we’ll be getting Ben ready to Drive Miss Daisy. PreGame Show Time.
Just because it’s a great song.
Another hot, dry day. Crazy ass Santa Ana weather. At least the winds aren’t bad. Santa Ana winds make California fire season so bad. Anyway, inside Casa Cuckoo we kept the chill. More Driving Miss Daisy on the agenda for tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully it will all be Rinse, Repeat… vibe-wise, and hopefully a little cooler and less dry. But this IS Casa Cuckoo and absolutely anything could happen. ¡Hasta mañana!
