Well, Well

Oops. Looks like I'll be shopping tomorrow after all, rain or no rain. Rain is most likely later in the evening, so maybe I'll be okay with a late afternoon excursion. I'll try to get everything done quickly. Coming out of a store with a cart full of stuff that has to be squeezed into the trunk and finding a downpour underway is a very unpleasant experience.

Right now the forecast is saying it will get less cold toward the last half of next week, but that's a long way off so only a tentative prediction, and I'm not counting on it. It would be nice if I could run the furnace a bit less without needing to put so many layers of clothing on that I can't move. I always worry that if I fall over while overgarbed I might be unable to get up again. I'll just roll around on the floor until I pass out from exhaustion.

The feral gray tabby cat who isn't part of my colony hasn't shown up for the last couple of days. It's not the first time he's stayed away for a day or two. So far he's always returned. I have no idea why I bother to worry about him when he's missing. It's not like he hasn't demonstrated the ability to take care of himself. And besides, my feral cats don't much like him and wouldn't miss him if he never came around again. I bond with cats much to easily, I guess.

Safeway has given me a digital coupon for the single-serving frozen lasagna I like, at about 40% off their regular price, and with no limit on the number I can buy. I've got one in the freezer right now which I will eat tonight to make room for more. I should be able to get a raincheck if they are sold out tomorrow, and maybe even get one if they don't have as many in stock as I'd like to buy. Even at the sale price it's a pretty expensive item, but this is a great chance to stock up, and I can always use them up slowly. Well, unless the nephew comes and raids the freezer, which he sometimes does.

Oh, I wasn't sneezing today as I was yesterday, so I guess I wasn't coming down with anything. My luck holds!
