Whatnot – 09/07/22


Let’s start off with Luna, the cat my daughter and her roomies share.

I don’t know how I ever worked five days in the office. Two days is quite manageable and dare I say it, pleasant. But my routine is not back to where it was pre-pandemic so blog posting is what’s taking a backseat. That, and reading. Ha! I hope the reading part improves because King’s new book is out now!

Fairy Tale by Stephen King

I celebrated a birthday this past weekend. It still feels weird to celebrate birthdays without the kids here. The Hub and I had a nice dinner at a restaurant I’ve always wanted to go to and it was really good. It was a super hot weekend with weird, weird weather. On Sunday, it hit 111 and then the clouds rolled in and it poured!! Wind, lightning and thunder. My poor pup had to have been terrified. We were in Pasadena visiting a bookstore but when we got home there were tree branches all around and she was very chatty telling us about the danger she was in. She hid under the bed. I could tell by what she took with her when she ducked for cover.

This post is coming to you late because I am in the office today and forgot to pre-schedule it! I don’t have anything going on tonight though so I shall use the time wisely to catch-up on some things. I also have to look for flights because we hope to see my daughter in her show this November. The logistics of that trip will be challenging.

I hope you are all well. I need to stop by blogs to see what’s been going on. Have a great week.

  1. I hope you enjoy the new King book, I thought it was very good. Lucky Luna to be safe for impending motherhood:) Glad your 2 days in office is working out for you and that you had a nice birthday as well. Have a good week.

  2. Ti, I’ll be watching for what you think about the new King book. I’m intrigued by the blurb and may pick it up later this fall. Belated happy birthday to you!

  3. Poor Chloe! My dog and cats get scared during storms too. Today I was on my computer with them all around me, my phone in it’s stand about a foot away from me. A loud tornado alarm went off, “FIND SHELTER NOW!!!” Scared the crap out of all of us. Thankfully there was only a lot of crazy wind, rain, and lightening.

    I have the Audible of the new King book too, don’t know when I’ll start it though. Maybe tomorrow since I just finished what I was reading, maybe later.

  4. Are you getting the weird tropical storm now? How it doesn’t scare Otter Pup. Nice picture of the cat. I’ve heard people are liking King’s Fairy Tale novel …. Enjoy!

    1. With each year that passes, the pup is less tolerant of things in general. Storms were fine as long as there was no thunder. But she hasn’t heard rain in so long that when she heard it during that weird weather we had she took off for my bedroom. She has a quiet safe space we made for her there.

  5. I have gotten so used to working remotely, I cannot imagine going into the office any more. I am glad you had a good birthday even though it was quiet. And, yes, to have a bit of rain was utterly delightful here as well!

    1. Not gonna lie. Putting on real clothes two days a week for the office is not bad, socializing with coworkers is good too. I just can’t get over how long the day seems on those two days.
