Days of Whine and Roses

Good morning pixies!

Sadly, there are no roses here in Middle Earth Canada - snow flurries today. Sigh.

Our vertigo kitten is still a bit spinny, but so much better than she was on the weekend, so we're thankful for that.

What's new in your world today?

This 'n that

Tax season is over! 

Pollen season and the explosion of all life forms is here.  My husband took me out to a tree in our yard that is literally buzzing with these wasp things, which he claims aren't the stinging kind, but instead a beneficial pest that eats aphids or something.  I still decided that indoors is a better location than under the buzzy tree.

We managed to get flea stuff on one of the cats, without serious damage.  The other, alas, is a lost cause. 

Must report on albatross progress this week; supposed to finish all first drafts by end of the month.  

What's new with you?

We had a rather soggy weekend -- which, after these years of drought, remains ever so exciting.  But the sun looks to be returning today, and that is a lot more cheerful!

Need to pick up the pace on the rest of this current albatross.  Have been suffering, alas, from a bad attitude.   Also, this albatross hates me.

My shy old lady cat has returned to sleeping by my feet!  She is too afraid to let human hands touch her, but feet are apparently safe.  My feet, anyway -- she does not confer this honor on just anybody. 

What is happening out your way?

House Hunting Whining

Oh my, Pixies. This house hunting thing is not as fun as it looks on tv.

Without boring you with so many details that even Mr. E can't keep up, several of our good possibilities are under contract already. So we're going to look at some more today, this time with check book in hand. The market here is moving quickly and is more than a little bit nuts.

In other news, we will have Albatross #2 liftoff on Saturday, which is very exciting and a giant relief.

How are things going in your world?
