Friday Felines

Oh My!  Not even 8 a.m. and it is already SO humid out there.  I sound like a broken record.  The heat index today is supposed to be 107.  Oh well, nothing I can do about it, and I'm not the only one dealing with this.  So...moving on...

Yesterday it poured rain on my way home from work.  But, by the time we were ready to think about dinner, the sky had cleared and Colin was able to grill some steaks for us.  He also grilled some potatoes and onions and we had some green beans and cherry tomatoes from the garden.  Col snapped this picture of Tyg - mighty hunter that he is:


He just loves to sprawl on this little metal table we have under our apple tree.  I guess he feels a bit closer to the birds.  Froggy is still safe, though Tyg has been enjoying sipping frog flavored water - lol.

Well it is Friday which means I should be leaving work by Noon or 1 at the latest.  I need to make a few stops on the way home - bank (for $$), grocery store (for mozzarella) and the library (for this book which Kat had recommended).  After that I will probably sprawl somewhere like Tyg.  I have left over coffee from this a.m. so I can make a nice tall glass of iced coffee to sip.

Weekend plans include getting together with Dee tomorrow for a bit of retail therapy, some lunch and I'm sure there will be knitting and coffee too.  Looking forward to that.  And, the car that didn't pass inspection is being picked up today!!  We are donating it to WRTI, our local classical & jazz radio station.  It will be interesting to see what our donation amount ends up being - as Fletch said the car is only worth scrap, but that's something.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend - enjoy and stay cool (or warm, depending on where you are in the world!).

  2. Maybe we should all take our cues from cats! Sprawling with a book and a glass of iced coffee sounds like just the thing for this weekend. Stay cool!

  3. That's one exhausted Mighty Hunter. We're in the same weather situation as you are--ICK. I'm hoping for random cloudbursts just so I don't have to venture outdoors to water anything.

  6. My kitties are glued all over the sidewalks and decks this morning too. I can't tell if they are enjoying the heat or if they have passed out from it. I hate it. I've already got a migraine and it's only day one of the heat wave. Ugh.

  8. Your dinner sounds lovely and you are lucky to have Colin cook for you often. A friend landed in Dubai yesterday at 7:45 a.m. It was already 111F!!!! She wasn't looking forward to this trip at all.
    I hope you have a lovely afternoon with your iced coffee and enjoy your time with Dee. I'll be with you both in spirit. :-)
    Blessings

  14. Oh Dee time will be fun!! Im enjoying time with Zach because in a month or so, he will be going back to Mexico. Im so happy for him. Ive learned so much the hard way this past year. If he isn't happy, being near us isn't good for anyone. He is so looking forward to going back to teach there!
