last night i fitted ellie and kitten with their collars, so this morning i cracked the garage door. as predicted, ellie cat has already disappeared; i don't expect to see him for a week or two, save for flashes of black fur in the bushes. then, as last time, he'll come back around and beg for pettin'.
kitten is being more cautious. i found her under the bushes between chris's and the neighbor's yard, so went to get my camera but she had already moved back into the garage by the time i went back outside. this picture is her peeking out the garage door.
so yesterday, i sold my car and i moved. big day! :)
the people who bought my car were so cute. chris had showed it to them while i was off cleaning cat poop at petsmart, and he came with me to the dmv to transfer over the title. he was in his truck when the mom of the kid who bought the car pointed at him and said, "my sons really like him! they said when they went over to your house the other night, he treated them like he already knew them." it really makes me smile when people say that kinda thing about him. it's like, "it's not just me!" he's really a special fella. :)
then onto the move.. on an extraordinarily hot day! the forecast warned it would be like summer. but it really wasn't bad - a few trips back and forth, then i dropped chris off at mass and did a few things on my own, then picked him up for one last run. i am 99% moved now. but we were gone for 12 hours yesterday. whoa mama, tired.
after dinner last night, and a lot more work here, we went out for drinks. today i slept in.. phew. at around 2 p.m. i finally got around to making lunch - avocado & mango salad with homemade (!) lemon herb dressing (fresh basil, fresh mint, garlic, salt, lemon juice, olive oil).
the instructions called for the mango and avocado to be "cubed" but the fruits didn't cooperate so well.
dessert was a banana, a few strawberries, and a handful of blueberries - food processed. so so yummy - it's really pretty weird that it's just fresh fruit.
the food processor was an excellent investment.
tomorrow night is the night of the week i make dinner, so i want to do it again - only with carob & walnuts mixed in. i tried that today but it didn't work so well, but we'll see how that goes. :)
time to go work on stuff i'm neglecting (homework, brushing my hair) and then we're taking the pups to the doggy park!
