The Week That Was
Notable dates in May thus far:
May 16th: first mosquitoes and first big rain arriving just in time to batten down the peonies and iris.
(Note to all of you, please remind me next March to cage my peonies. This is now on your shoulders).
May 13th: the date my favorite Airbnb guest arrived to stay for 6 nights while looking for permanent housing. Instant connection that will eventually end with him moving into house as full time house mate in November.
In the meantime I have room booked/being booked until July when an intern for Swiss TV will arrive to stay through August. Thus assuring cat care while I take a couple of weeks vacation.
B., the present guest has found a temporary rental around the corner until he goes to Quantico in August for 3 months training. He too will be visiting the cats while I'm (not) sunning on beaches.
He loves the hood and finds everyone so welcoming. I told him it (the hood) picks its people and for better or for worse he is one of the select.
He's a cat guy, especially gingers, spent 4 years as a vet tech while in college, so hopefully will be able to help me get cats into cages for yearly vet visit ( previously GG's job) and made the mistake of telling me he was handy.
The equivalent of handing the keys to a candy store to a diabetic. I love handy.
May 12th: the day I had my stitches out and was released to garden. With the caveat I wear a bandaid over site, and a ginormous hat. And no sun for a year. And no eating apples, picture here doctor stretching mouth very wide at least 5 times in succession to show me what not to do. Finally I told him thank god I was gay.
He told me the site looked good tho, like earthworms were at work.
May 11th: the day my friend and hairdresser went into shop on his Monday day off to do emergency surgery on my hair. Resuming life as a bobbed blonde hidden under huge hat.
May 10th: the day I wrote my last post and told you my day would be full of nada. Here to report I kept my promise. Though that led to a very busy Monday.
I will now insert gratuitous flower pic and head off to yoga. Looking forward to hearing about the week that was for you.
