A raccoon is currently disturbing the feral cats in my back yard. The cats turned up late (in hiding from the heat all day, no doubt) so I had to feed them late, and the raccoon is coming to see if they've left any food in their bowls. The cats are not pleased. I do hope they won't try to confront the beast, though. Raccoons can do a lot of damage to a cat.
My unintentional nap this afternoon brought a disturbing dream, but I don't remember it at all. All I know is that I woke up with that post-bad-dream feeling that something terrible had just happened. Maybe it's best that I don't remember. Explicit details might be far more distressing than the vague feeling of uneasiness that forgotten dreams leave me with.
The reason I was napping was because I was unable to get to the stores today, mostly due to the heat. I did manage to get someone who was going to Safeway to pick up for me a raincheck for the cheap one-day-sale price on kitty litter, which they had already sold out of. If I can get to the store on Sunday I'll use it then. I'm not out of anything yet because the heat has put a damper on my appetite. Fortunately my refrigerator was well-stocked with beer, which is the most important summer food group. In fact I think I'll grab a bottle right now and drink it on the back porch where I can be of the heat for a while. This room with the computer is a miserable place to be.
