Hard to believe it's the end of October already.  It is said that time passes more quickly the older you get.  I didn't believe it back when I was younger.  I believe it now.  It seems as if there isn't enough time for me to get done things I want or need to do.  I wonder why it is.
Y'all have a happy day and remember:  today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

My two cats

I have two cats, Cleo and PB (stands for Peanut Butter).  As I mentioned before Cleo decided to wet my bed in one spot.  Since that time I have put one of those flannel backed table cloths over the waterproof bed pad and under the bottom sheet.  It makes a crinkling noise when I get in bed but at least I won't have to wash the bed pad and it doesn't bother me, especially when I'm asleep.  Since I've done that, however, she has refrained from repeating her bad behavior.  I also purchased something called Feliway.  It's a pheromone that calms cats down.  I did that because ever since PB came home after having the claws removed from her unusable leg (she was catching it on stuff when she moved.  I found the cat bed at the bottom of the stairs on a few mornings) Cleo hisses at her when she gets too close.  It seems to be working.  Now that colder weather is moving in Cleo may be spending more time inside and I don't want any cat fights.  Sigh.  For the last few nights PB has slept between the coverlet and top sheet on my bed snuggled up against my back side.  Cleo has slept on top of the coverlet snuggled up against my front side.  What's with that?  I mean, I certainly don't mind.  It's kinda nice.  It's just that I can't move 😁😼.  Some time during the night they depart and go their separate ways and I wake up alone.
In the morning Cleo usually goes outside first thing.  Now that it's getting cooler (it was in the 40's this morning) she is staying inside until the sun has been up for a while and the front porch is warmer.  PB has taken to going out on the enclosed back porch.  There is no heat out there but she doesn't seem to mind.  I have put a small heater out there since I moved an Angel Wing begonia out there.  Her other favorite spot now that the weather has turned is to lie on the heat vent near the front door.  Sure wish I could understand them better.
Y'all have a good day and remember:  He who is laughing isn't crying.

Some days...

Some days I get some things done, others I don't.  Sunday I think I slept most of the day.  Don't know why.  Yesterday, being grey and rainy, I thought I'd play with some bright colored fabric.  I didn't.  Instead I started a basket and made a couple of pairs of earrings.  I ordered more rings online so I can make more earrings.  I also started a copper bracelet in a Byzantine pattern.  There's a Christmas market coming up at the art center and I need to get stuff made.  Should have started a while back but...
I take advantage of these "creative" days.  If I'm not in the mood I can't do a decent job so I don't even try.  Hopefully I can get some more accomplished today.
Y'all have a blessed day and remember:  today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

Early morning

Got up at o'dark thirty this morning to finish some planting at the art center.  The other days when I was planting it was way too hot (and it's October!) even at 9:00.  Finished this morning just as the sun was coming up and had just enough light.  It was an interesting experience trying to plant in half light but at least it wasn't hot.
Decided to treat myself to breakfast at one of the local restaurants.  The Sautee Trail Cafe is not far from me and is always crowded on Sunday morning.  Happily I got there before the breakfast rush.  Even so, they were pretty busy already.  Pancakes, sausage and coffee filled me up quickly.  The sausage was nice and spicy.  A young girl was trying to learn the register...not easy when the place is busy.  People were patient, though.  A good thing.  I hope they're as patient after church.
Y'all have a good day and remember:  You're not getting older, you're reaching perfection.

Bad cat

Any of you out there know how to cure a cat from peeing where it isn't supposed to, especially since there is a litter box that is cleaned out every day?  My cat peed on my bed for the third time early this morning.  Nothing like rolling over and getting a wet foot.  I have no idea why she does it.  The box is only 5-6 feet from the door of my room.  I've had her checked out at the vet and she doesn't have kidney problems and her bladder is fine.  She hadn't done it in a long time so I'm wondering why she did it early this morning.  Looks like I'll be making another appointment with the vet.  It's time for her  yearly check and shots anyway.
