Napped [Oct. 10th, 2015|11:50 pm]
I don't know if we had another nice sunset tonight or not, as I slept through it. I was watching something on television and I guess it wasn't interesting enough to keep me awake— or to remember, as I've totally forgotten what it was. The sunset might have been nice, as we did have a considerable number of cirrus clouds floating about last time I was outside late this afternoon.

When I woke up it was already too dark to water the shrubs, so they'll have to wait until Monday to get a drink.Cirrus clouds can make for a fairly decent sunset, though not one as good as cumulus clouds do. I spent a bit more time than usual outdoors today, as the days are getting shorter and I want to store up as much vitamin D as I can before the gray days of winter set in. I don't get much in summer because the heat drives me into the shade or back indoors.

On of my feral kitties has been sick today, and threw up a bit of frothy white liquid a couple of times, and periodically meows at me as though something hurts. This one lets me touch him, so I was able to check his nose and it isn't warm, so I don't think it's an infection of any sort. He most likely ate something he shouldn't have eaten. I'll just keep checking on him as long as I'm awake, and hope he's better tomorrow. I might be awake for quite a while, given that long evening nap I had.

Right now I'm going to find something to snack on. Probably some celery. I keep forgetting I've got it, and it's going to move beyond edible if I don't get around to it soon. I wish I had some cream cheese to put in it, but I guess I'll have to make do with peanut butter.

Oh, poor kitty. I hope he's better already.

Celery with peanut butter's good! On the whole, it's a vegetable I tend to leave in the bin till it's nasty and throw-outable. Chinese restaurants that use lots of it in Kung Pao don't make me happy -- I much prefer diced broccoli stem in same. Not picky, am I? :D

The cat slept all day Sunday, but has been a bit more active today. I think he'll probably recover.

My mom used to make celery soup when I was a kid, and I was not too fond of it, but I suspect that it was because it was a cream soup, and I've never liked those much (if milk is hot it should have chocolate in it, not celery, tomatoes, potatoes, or clams!) But I was very fond of raw celery filled with either cream cheese or peanut butter, which I frequently got as a snack.

In the 1970s a Jewish deli opened up in a nearby business district and they served Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray, surely the strangest of soft drinks, but I developed a bit of a taste for it. After that, I would usually seek out a deli that served it whenever I was in one of L.A.'s Jewish neighborhoods. It's every interesting if you only have it a couple of times a year. I wouldn't mind having a bottle right now, but I believe that the nearest deli to this backwater is 90 miles away in Sacramento, and I don't miss the stuff that much, not even after having been without it for nigh on thirty years.

That sounds weird! But then, I've drunk Italian sodas and liqueurs that are bitter and herbal. And pricey! If I ever happen across a can of that, I'll try it.

Funny that, even after 30 years, you're not yearning to have another taste. :D
