It's so hot...

It's so hot here that inside my cabinet my eggs exploded...
I'm sad about this, these are the last of my mom's Easter eggs.  They are probably 10 years old, dried out inside.

 Pg. 127, The Ice Queen, Nele Neuhaus

Pia thought about her grandmother and felt a pang of guilt.  The nursing home in which she'd had to spend the last three years of her life was filled with patients suffering from dementia and others who were totally disabled.  That was where she'd ended up after a productive life in full possession of her mental faculties, because it was the only place the family could afford.  Pia was ashamed because she had visited her Oma so seldom, but the sight of the old people sitting in their bathrobes with lost, empty expressions had depressed her terribly.  The carelessly prepared food, the loss of individuality, the less than satisfactory care by surly and chronically overworked staff members who never had time for personal conversions-a life shouldn't have to end like that.

Sunday Salon...The Ice Queen

Sunday Salon finds me still reading The Ice Queen, it's quite intense, and certainly a genre I enjoy, so what's taking so long... I think I need to find a beach...

Silent Sunday...

I've had this hibiscus in my garden for a few years, this year it gave up the ghost, and did not come back in earnest.  I suspect it's being crowded out by the evergreens.  I dug up the yucky roots and tried to find an appropriate spot to replant, no luck.   Sometimes you are just too tired to bloom. 

Have a silent Sunday y'all.

Saturday Snapshot...International Cat Day

Today is International Cat Day... so here is our critter.
This is Keehan, he's if 14 years old.  He sits in the sun most days, anywhere it is, in this case it was on a pile of rubermaid containers (we're under construction).  He's usually in the room where we are, except for nap times, which happens to be most of the day, then you can search all you want finding him is darn near impossible.  He was a pet adopted from the shelter, a sensitive watchmen, like if you come in my yard squirrel, my family will know, even if it's 4 a.m. Fussy eater, Must have 1/2 tsp milk each morning, or else.  Loves tea, and ice cream.  So don't walk away from your spot with these there. Adores Daniel, and loves S. Vincent, argues with Handy Andy and is very grateful for me (I feed, and clean).   Happy International Cat Day.

Wordless Wednesday...

This really works,  I know it's not wordless, but it's so tingly.  Do Try it, make sure you have no cuts or open wounds, like blisters, it might be a bit stingy.  But, otherwise really comfy.
