Whatnot – 09/14/22

Fave reading spot and friend.We bought our plane tickets to see my daughter in her show this November. My son will meet us there. Hotel is booked, car is rented. Obviously we won’t be able to do this for every role, but it’s a lead and her first MSU show. Please pray that COVID spares the cast. They have some time.

Speaking of COVID, I am getting my updated booster on Friday for the new variant and a week later my flu shot. I thought about doing them together but a week in between will be better I think.

We had some rain. Not nearly enough but a good day of light rain. It is super humid but the temps have really come down. Today the high will be 86. Not bad at all.

My reading is all over the place. I finally received the new King book but I am reading three others and want to finish those before I dive into King. I am having such a hard time getting used to these two days in the office. I am fine while AT the office but once I am home I am useless. You’d think that hanging on the couch with a book would be the perfect activity but my brain is running non-stop. Need to slow down. As you can see from the photo above, The Otter Pup is doing her best to keep me in one spot.

This Saturday my husband is working an outreach event and I will be driving into the Valley for lunch with some retired colleagues. They live in Idaho now so when they come down we try to hook up. It’s always a very good time.

The updated booster I am getting will be Pfizer but I’ve been getting Moderna all this time. I’ve heard that for the new variant, you can go either way but Moderna is not yet available near me so we will go with Pfizer. Hope we do okay with it.

In kitty news, my daughter’s cat had five kittens!! I don’t see how she carried that many. She is just a baby herself and so tiny. She is such a good mama. She will be spayed as soon as she is able to have it done.

Have a great week. I am taking this week to visit all your blogs. Hope you are all well.

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!

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.
