Anyway, the feral cats took off and didn't return for hours. Smart kitties. This dog does not like cats at all, except to chase. He ought to consider his karma, though. There are mountain lions living not far from here, and one could easily find its way to his house.
Today was the peak of the current warm cycle. Opening all the windows still managed to warm the house only to about 66 degrees. It was nice while it lasted. Still, I spent much of the afternoon outdoors. I got about half of the back lawn raked free of leaves, and found another two dozen walnuts under them. The other half of the lawn is too far from the walnut tree to have any nuts fall on it, so I won't get paid for raking its leaves. I might not even bother to rake that half. Tomorrow is shopping day. I don't like to rake before shopping, and it will be too late by the time I get home. There could be rain again by Tuesday. Those leaves might just have to molder for another week or so, if I don't get to them on Monday.
None of the stores have any fruit on sale this week, other than apples. I don't much like apples. I'll probably spring for some full-priced oranges. The pears for some reason are all way overpriced right now. I hope its just a lull in the harvest. Pears would go so well with some of the walnuts I've gathered. Pears and walnuts and cheese make a great lunch. Well, it will be cold again next week anyway. I'll just get some crusty bread and have it with soup.
