What, Where? [Oct. 8th, 2015|07:11 pm]
We've had a rather spectacular sunset sky tonight. The spectacle spread from horizon to horizon, thanks to an abundance of clouds that gradually quit being white and turned vivid orange before fading to mauve. I'm watching the last of it through my west-facing window right now, and there the clouds have turned a remarkable shade of pale, translucent red. I'd love to find a fruit of that color, because it looks delicious. Ah, now it is getting a bit purple because the light is almost gone.

The first stars ought to be emerging about now, but I'll have to go outside to see them. The waning moon won't be up for several hours. I expect it to be a pleasant night, as it will be cool and a nice breeze is expected later. I can't start enjoying it just yet, though, as I totally forgot to make my grocery list yesterday and again today, so I'd better do it now, just in case Safeway has some good deals for their Friday only sale.

I'm not sure where today went, though I didn't spend any of it napping, but I have only the vaguest memory of falling down the Internet's rabbit hole, and then nothing. I think some malevolent web site might have hypnotized me, planted post-hypnotic suggestions, then told me to forget everything, and sometime tonight I'll start to cluck like a chicken, or take my pants off and shout "I love raspberry candy!" If so, good thing Portia is not one of those nervous cats. And good thing I otherwise live alone.

Well, it's tomorrow already. Did you cluck like a chicken or make a scene over raspberry candy? (I like raspberry creams from Russell Stover.) I'd have enjoyed seeing a sunset like that, but we've had PNW gloom. Which I like, fortunately. :D

I don't remember clucking like a chicken, though I have a vague memory of walking like a duck. But that was probably because my legs get wonky when I sit for too long anymore. I did eat the last of my raspberry-filled donuts, but the only scene I made was when Portia sneaked up on me and tried to lick some of the powdered sugar off of it.

Oh boy, I do that too -- when I stand up, especially in cold weather, I have to unkink the knees and hips. :/

Portia, how rude! Mmm, raspberry donuts.

She could have gotten powdered sugar on her nose and looked like a feline coke head. Then all the other kitties would have wanted a snort too.
