Gibbs bagged himself a spot on the couch arm recently, and hung out. He was happy his human was home from vacation, but nevertheless gave that “poor, poor me” vibe.
Things would turn worse, unfortunately, when the poor soul went to the vet for dental and had two incisors pulled. They are smaller teeth between the canines on the upper and lower jaw. I had a cat once that had all of his lower incisors pulled and afterward, he had a hard time keeping his tongue in his mouth. Gibbs is doing well as he hasn’t stopped sitting at the edge of the living room carpet (when not asleep) and asking for food and love. He gets both, along with a twice-daily dose of antibiotics, which we would both rather do without.
Yeah, poor soul. Gibbs has bagged his human’s undivided love and attention (and ability to buy cat food) now and forever.
Last Saturday, the weather here was summer perfect. A high around 76, low humidity and dewpoint, blue sky, plenty of sunshine. Biking buddy and I headed up to Green Bay to bike two paved trails, both of which rambled alongside a river. No hills…only winding curves, shaded blacktop, bunnies and deer scurrying toward the green underbrush of the woods.
There were plenty of people on the trails – walking and biking – and on the Fox River Trail, a few people were fishing.
I’m not sure if this guy bagged any fish, but he was wise to be in a place that offered shade and a comforting breeze.
Biking buddy and I rode 30 miles that day, which some may think a lot. It didn’t feel that long, but perhaps it was because we were enjoying the day and took a break in between to have an amazing lunch.
Corn waffles, pork belly and poached egg. The yellow was pickled onion, which I pushed to the side (blech). The corn waffles were the best part. I could have eaten an entire plate of them, but I suppose the protein was a good idea considering our two-wheeled activity.
This past week, I bagged a cute top at Kohl’s for $3.00 after having lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen since April of 2021. She winters in Florida for most of the year now, but when we get together, we always have to shop at least one store. Our preference has been thrift stores, but I can’t argue about finding a good bargain at Kohl’s.
The week before, I had breakfast with another friend, who I hadn’t seen since before Covid. It was nice catching up and I hope we connect again soon. Three years was too long to not see each other face-to-face.
Lastly, the patio plants are doing exceptionally well this year. I either chose good, healthy plants, or the weather had something to do with it. Or maybe both. Watering helps too.
That’s it – the last two weeks bagged and ready to be stored in memory or waiting for its owner to re-visit the patio and bike, and stay in touch with friends.
How has your last two weeks been? Good, I hope.
