Am in an unreasonably cheerful mood today! Maybe because I'm skipping a training thing (optional, anyway), and we survived the hottest day evah yesterday, and some events have persuaded me of the good and generous hearts of the universe.
Wildlife news:  Anxious family members reported that Polly the cat had a bloody nose, but it turned out the other cat had swiped near her nose;  racoon pawprints in our garage, where the beast attended to washing up in the dog's water dish. The pawprints are pretty darned funny, Polly's fine, and the cats have made up.
New dryer, all hooked up! Garage marginally neater after all the moving stuff around. Old dryer is sitting around making the side yard look like a junk yard for now, but the local recycling center will take it next weekend. Yay!
On the menu: Pasta salad with lots of veggies, bits of mozzarella, light oil/vinegar dressing, olives. For some reason, I neglected to make this favorite all summer. Cooking this morning, before it gets hot again. (Less hot, I am told, than yesterday.)
Forecast: They keep promising us an El Nino with lots of rain, but apparently no time soon. There's yet another big fire near where my aunt used to live. Enough, already.
Albatrossi: Think this will be a quiet and possibly productive day, since everybody else is at the training that I'm ditching.
What's going on with you?
