On the list today is to take the dogs (including the now miraculously improved Scrappy) over to M's farm so that they can run around like maniacs (under supervision) and pee on everything. We are running into a problem with deer damage in the orchard.
Besides the aforementioned housecleaning, my 'staycation' plan is to go shopping. My wardrobe is in desperate need of an infusion and, while I approached shopping without Sylvie with trepidation, it must be done. Also, I am notoriously cheap and I am allergic to malls. This presents quite a challenge. We'll see if I am up to it.
As I replenished the Boyz' food dishes this morning (grain free rabbit/chicken kibble), it occurred to me that they should make cat food that makes more sense - chipmunk/carp; squirrel/mouse. Let's face it, I could provide an endless supply of all of the above, with the exception of the carp. I am sure they will never do it because our delicate sensitivities make us think we need to feed our cats/dogs the same food we eat. Have you ever opened a can of cat food (or dog food) and recognized the contents as salmon au jus (other than the unnaturally nuclear glow pink)? Let's get real, folks.

Today I close with a remembrance. A year ago today, my dear friend, Kay, was ripped out of our lives. There is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded of her. She was so tightly woven into my life that there is no way I will ever forget her. She was one-of-a-kind. I hope she is in a beautiful place, able to look down and feel all the love that her family and many friends send her way every day. I miss you mightily.
