A Break, a Palpable Break

A cool but partly sunny afternoon made for a pleasant trip to the stores, and a major football game being played today kept the stores themselves fairly quiet, so I got in and out with a minimum of fuss. Also one of the sale items that I had thought was only available on Friday when I couldn't go was actually on sale all weekend, so. My only complaint is that I ended up spending way too much money altogether. But there is now plenty of kitty litter and there are also donuts, so again, so. Plus I replaced the candy bar that Portia hid from me last week and which I still haven't found. The new one is safely ensconced in a drawer which, I'm fairly certain, she cannot open.

But my sleeping schedule is totally catawampus, and I don't know how I will be able to be awake from eight o'clock in the morning until perhaps as late as six o'clock in the evening tomorrow, which is the gaping window of opportunity with which AT&T has provided itself for sending someone out to check into the problem with my telephone line. Fortunately I have not lost service today, though the Internets connection was down for awhile last night during the heaviest part of the rain. It began raining again just after sunset this evening, but it's a light rain so far and isn't interfering with the line. Still I should make this entry brief, just in case. I hope that whatever gets done tomorrow will fix the problem for good— or at least until the next time squirrels decide to use my telephone cable as a chew toy or a shortcut between my roof and the utility pole.
