Things In the Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear

PurrBob the hockey player

It may appear as if I skipped a day but I didn't because it is not a new day until I go to sleep and wake up again. So my computer may think it is tomorrow today but it is still today to me

Why am I up so late? Because my brain is on fire still and lying down is not appealing. So the pups are on the couch now after being excited to still be up after the girls went to bed and Purr Bob is tearing down my house. I have righted a pitcher and a picture, rescued a notepad from being eaten not read and now he is playing tile hockey in the dinning room probably with a bottle cap of Dirt's.

You may ask, dear Reader, why I don't just throw his furry little self out the door? Because if he is left out at night he climbs the clematis and the fire escape to the girls window and tries to get in. Not necessarily a bad choice, until you know that he is on a metal roof whilst doing his shenanigans. So in he stays at the request of the concerned pet owners.

I did not finish my rejuvenation project today but I most definitely will have it and more done by Thursday.
I realized I can't really replant everything until I have taken up some plants from connecting beds that I wish to put in the one I am working on. I also need to put some of the ones I have been taking out into the other adjoining beds.
And I think I am going to have Dirt bring home a bag or two of Alfalfa pellets to put into the top six inches of the soil before I plant. I haven't priced alfalfa pellets in a while so I am not sure what has happened with the price of them. We'll see.
This maniac is still terrorizing my kitchen and dining room. I wonder what destruction I will wake up to. Dirt has requested that I try to get some sleep so I am going, with a long prayer list to distract myself from my four days of searing brain matter.

Being the absolute opposite of a night owl (I'm a morning lark??)your peek into late night doings is interesting. The cat would be locked in our laundry room - DH does NOT like animals who prowl the house at night - he wakes up when a deer burps outside so I think a wandering cat would make him totally sleepless in Texas! So what do you find the alfalfa pellets do for your garden other than make deer love to come there?? Curious minds want to know 'cause I have mediocre soil here.

You know I am exaggerating about the deer burping thing and as along as I'm 'fessing up -- on the rare occasion I am up late at night - the refrigerator is my hangout not the computer!!!

Your mischievous cat is really cute though! I can only imagine the noise he would be making on the metal roof. I'm curious too about the alfalfa pellets. I haven't heard of this practice before.

I don't know how you can TYPE with a migraine -- or even think! I have only had ONE migraine EVER in my life, but all I could do was lay down with a cold towel on my head, my eyes closed, and TRY to think about anything other than the fact that I wished someone would cut off the top of my head so I could pour the pain out! I could not have carried on a conversation at all...

I hope beasty boy doesn't destroy the whole entire place! I'm sure he's quite capable!

As for our Bible Study - Quilly and I have both ordered the books and she has announced it on her blog - I will be announcing it on mine in a day or two... and I will be setting up a place for us to "meet". If you would like to join in, please do! We're doing the Beth Moore study on Daniel - and the link to Amazon is on Quilly's page too!

I have just sent in this month's Amazon order, so I won't be purchasing any more books for a month. But I will check out your site for sure and be reading the main text. I'm glad you are doing this.

Migraines, I have lived with since childhood... I'll tell you all about it in a post.

Lanny thank you so much for the award! I am really behind in reading and responding to blogs. I read it before between running here and there but didn't respond! I probably won't be able to get around to doing all the things I am supposed to with that until the weekend. Thank you, I don't think I am deserving, as I have been posting boring stuff lately. I didn't get home until 9pm last night and then I ate, and went to bed! Thank you again!!
