Dangerous Creature

I'm going to start blaming Portia for my unintentional naps. I've realized that every time they happen, she is curled up next to me purring. It's the purring cat that puts me to sleep! She probably does it deliberately. Then, when I'm asleep, she has the house to herself. She's up to something! She'd better not be using my computer! If a bunch of cat toys arrive from Amazon I'm going to be so pissed off!

Anyway. I slept the evening away, and now Orion is walking on clouds. The weather is about to change. In fact, winter might be coming. There will be rain by Monday afternoon (just in time for my dental appointment) and then snow is likely by Wednesday. It's a good thing I didn't decide to put the jade plants back outside this lovely, mild afternoon when the thought to do so crossed my mind. I'd have just had to haul them back in before the freezing weather arrived.

That flock of swans I heard flying north just after nightfall will probably be flying back south in a day or two.
