Afternoon.
Much running around so far today. I "think" we're done with "going" for the day. The internet was acting up this morning so I have a lot of catching up to do!

The kitchen is starting to look like a kitchen instead of a disaster area. I'm still waiting for the space under the sink to be COMPLETELY dry -- which may take another day or two -- before I can put everything away but what can't be put away yet is in containers and set out of the way. Tonight's dinner is frozen lasagna and breadsticks so "mess" will be minimal.

Just had a bird -- species unknown -- in the house. We got it out with a minimum of uproar.

We've used WAY too many megabytes today so I'm heading out now.

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Morning. It's chilly and damp today and there was fog this morning. I may go back to bed unless I wake up more than I am now.

Found a couple of patterns that will help with the "Uniform Project". Neither are perfect but they'll give me a starting point. The one for me and the girls is out of print but I was able to get a complete range of sizes so I lucked out.

Anyway, I'm heading out.  Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Afternoon.
I woke up with the shakes this morning. What dreams I remember wouldn't really account for that so it must be something else.
I've been doing laundry since I got up, hopefully I'll get caught up today.

The Queen has been much more active today which has eased my mind somewhat. We will be making some changes inside the house so as the weather gets colder, she's more comfortable. We'll be more comfortable too but that's a bonus.

I found something on Doctors Fosters and Smith that should help the Queen this winter. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3261+1883+19599+8982&pc...

It has the advantage of being non-electric so it will work anywhere and even if the lights go out. I plan to tuck it under a layer of fleece throw so it won't have to be washed often. I expect that it will be popular and not just with the Queen so we'll be getting several.

Skywise just called. He got off 10 minutes short of a 12 hour shift and it isn't even the Christmas season yet!  Smiley Smiley

I'm heading out. I've looked at everything I wanted to look at that required a lot of megabytes so I'm going to get ready for bed so I can fall into it when Skywise gets home.

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Afternoon.
We're back from town after too little sleep. Here's hoping that he gets home at something resembling a decent hour tonight.
Now to get caught up.

Interesting.
Facebook appears to be seriously broken.

Planetwide meltdown in progress....

Facebook is back up.
Planetwide disaster has been averted.
I need to get prone which means "nap" since there weren't enough hours between when I went to bed and when I had to get up. Smiley Be back later.

Tried to sleep, couldn't thanks to the damned phone. Gave up about 10 minutes ago.....
I'll now attempt to stay awake until Skywise gets home.

Dishwasher is running. It started without problems. I'm keeping an eye on it though.

Damned dishwasher is being a pain. It's running but I don't know if anything is getting clean.

Afternoon.
Skywise thinks that someone tried to break into the car -- which is usually parked in the Guest House driveway -- last night and wants us to be on alert and in "lockdown" especially after dark. *sigh* Skywise never leaves anything valuable in the car at night so it may just be bored kids looking for thrills but we won't take chances.

The Queen decided that she wanted out a couple of hours ago. She went into the woods and Moonie followed her. They sat down for a while, the Queen on Moonie's lap. I came inside to rest my legs which were complaining mightily and when I went back out, they were out of sight. I don't know where they are now but Moonie knows the woods like her own bedroom so I know that she and the Queen will find their way back. Hopefully before it gets dark.

Went out into the woods looking for Moonie and the Queen. Not my brightest idea I'll be the first to admit. Spirit found them and we're all back in the house. I hope I'm able to walk in the morning.....

Used WAY too megabytes today. I blame an article I wanted to read that turned out to be a video that loaded and started playing when I turned my back to check on the Queen. Consequently, I'm heading out. See ya in the morning.

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Morning.
We're back from town. The Queen had a bowel "accident" while we were gone and she seems very weak. If it is "time" I hope/pray she passes gently.....  Cry
