Bad News, Good News, and Sky Watch Friday
First, the bad news. I had a rough time sleeping last night. Mike has been sick. He's been coughing and moaning in his sleep. Of course, he's not been sleeping that well, either. But that's not the only reason I didn't sleep well. All the animals think they should be as comfortable as possible at bed time. That means they think they should all sleep with us. Except Prissy. She rarely ever gets on our bed. Elvis, who I named after Elvis Presley (A Little Less Conversation-remix), climbs right up my shoulder and puts his face in my face to sleep. Max (who Mike named with his ex before we met) gets in and out of bed all night. He's one of the nosiest dogs I've ever met. Thinks he's gotta know what's going on with everyone all the time. Minnie would rather be between us, but is forced to sleep at our feet. She doesn't move after she settles in....even if she's in your way. Then there's the bad part of the good news. Part of the reason I couldn't sleep well last night. It's hard to sleep with a cat...yes a cat....particularly a striped one named Stripey Cat thinks he's supposed to sleep on your face.
Mike called me yesterday to tell me that Stripey Cat came home. There are a number of kids that live down the street. I think maybe one of them tried to keep him. But if you open the door when he wants to go out he bolts before you can even say stop. I could be wrong, though. The important thing is the good news....Stripey Cat came home! Thanks everyone.
And finally, I wanna do a sky watch Friday. I got the idea from that Canadian woman over at That British Woman. I took these pics about a month ago and never down loaded them from my camera. I thought the second one looked like a volcano erupting. Perfect timing with the one erupting in Iceland. Hope all you European types are okay and not too ashy or smokey.
I took these pics right out my back door. Those trees are just on the other side of the field behind the house. Great sky, ain't it? Y'all have a fantastic weekend!
