The particular bargains they had at the stores today led me to make a fairly large dinner tonight, and now I've got a fairly large mess to clean up. I have bought steak maybe twice a year, but eating it tonight it made me a bit sad since I don't have any kitties to share it with. I always got one big enough that those in the house could each have a bite or two (and Portia usually got a few extra bites, being the queen and all.) I really miss those cats.|
The banking will have to wait until Tuesday, as it turns out the bank is closed Monday for the MLK holiday. It's supposed to be dry that day, but it should rain later tonight and tomorrow. The big surprise is that Thursday and Friday will be sunny, and if not warm at least mild for this time of year. I've been complaining about the cold, but the mild days are a reminder that summer in this place can be hellish. I should appreciate the cool while I have it, I guess.
My sister had to go up on the ridge this morning and said that below town (or town site) there was a band of thick fog— actually the clouds that kept the valley gray all day— but once they arrived in Paradise the day was bright and sunny, and a few degrees warmer than Chico. It was probably a pleasant change for the sodden cats and the trappers who are hunting for them. I hope they catch more tonight. I look forward to seeing the photos of the previous night's rescues every day.
