I'm a bit confused on the days because of the holiday. Seems like we've had a series of Saturdays. I'm not complaining. So this was a fun, summer-like week. It was nice having some extra play and relax time.
I'm glad that it's July. This is the time of year when our "monsoon season" typically begins, meaning afternoon rains, or at least some clouds, on most days. Junes have historically been unpredictable and unfriendly.
Wolfgang did manage to find the key to the Civic. It actually was in the trash dumpster. He was retracing his steps, and he remembered throwing away a bbq potato chip bag when he got out of the car. Tossed the key in there too. *LOUD SIGH*.
But alas, the cat is still at large. We're thinking she probably has other people feeding her. During her time with us, we tried to help her slim down by feeding her portion controlled indoor food meals. No people food. Yet all this time, she remained a big girl.
Her chub was actually part of her cuteness, but at the same time, we didn't want her keeling over from stroke/diabetes/etc. We're betting she's made an entire buffet of the neighborhood. It's still strange to have not seen her for three weeks, though...
Had a nice time at my niece's shower yesterday. I remember when she was just a wee babe *sniff*. Magnum asked what we do at a bridal shower.
"We mingle, eat, watch her open gifts, then the strippers show up and we get out our ones"
Let him ponder.
I just had a lovely bike ride, then bought some lemonade from the little girl down the street and chatted with some neighbors. We used to have block parties on the 4th of July, but of the three families that used to do the bulk of the planning, one moved, another divorced, and the third probably decided they didn't want to hassle with it. Still, it's nice to have some downtime to visit with our streetmates.
Now, off to round two of wedding party weekend. Better load up on ones.
