This is my last day off for a while. I'm making good use of it, I think. It was a pretty nice morning, not too cold, not much wind, some actual sunshine. Getting ready to do the thing with the cat, which I decided to use the kitchen counter for, cuz it's a good height, I could hang the IV up on a cabinet handle with my nifty new S hook from Lowe's at 9:45 last night which is a nice time to be in Lowe's, and I don't mind if she has negative connotations with the kitchen counter, cuz that's not okay territory for the kitties anyway, I started by clearing a spot, and then I discovered that I'd rather clean the kitchen in ways I'm not usually drawn to tend to (the stovetop, cleaning out part of a cabinet, wiping down some cabinet fronts so they look less like Kurt Cobain's cabinets in Last Days) than try to pick up my shy cat and poke her with a needle for the first time.
So that's what I meant by the subject line. You know. That thing about unappealing tasks look more appealing with another even more unappealing task on deck.
I oughta take a shower soon, while the dog's still sleeping off the morning. Maybe I'll have time to go out for some errands before going out tonight.
I like runs more than groups in Rummikub (and gin rummy too, I think) (though they're more, like, stressful there). They're more fun than groups, aren't they? I know you all have opinions about this. (Ha.)
There's a squirrel making its way along a ridge of snow at the side of the dirt road out there. Mo is watching intently, yet a whole lot more peacefully than Lu regards a squirrel.
