Saturday somehow put me to sleep early, and I wrote no entry. I'm quite sure I missed something I'd intended to watch on television, too, but I can't remember what it was. It was worse for Portia, as she was outside when I fell asleep and I didn't let her back indoors until early this morning. It was a fairly mild night, though, so she took no harm from the experience. I think I actually slept better for not having a cat piled atop me.

Today brought its own gift of nearly empty streets and markets, thanks to a Big Game of some sort (OK, I know it was the Stuporbowl.) Despite the lack of chaos in the aisles, I still managed to buy two of the wrong products, and forget to buy something important. I'll have to do returns and fetch the missing item on Tuesday after my appointment with the chiropractor. At least this being a head-yanking week I won't have to make a special trip to correct my shopping errors.

It looks as though the comparatively balmy weather might be leaving us this week after all. There might even be rain again on Thursday. I hope there is, because drought is worse than damp cats. I feel bad for the frogs, though. They've been singing so nicely every night, and now they'll have to endure at least one or two freezing nights. In the long run the rain will be good for them, too, of course. Their pools might dry up by spring without it.
