80s and 90s? Crazy Karma can be found sprawled out snoozing...
...all over the porch.
Well, I made a trip over to Dagan and Leah's yesterday. It was hot, but the humidity had dropped down some, thank goodness! I was snapping pictures out the windows since there was very little traffic and I could drive slowly. I had mentioned a while back how all this farmland with the rich black dirt is slowly being transformed over to buildings and pavement.
They put in the nice, new, big roads first...
...with all those power lines...
...and they take this farmland...
...and start to dig it up.
See all that black...
It just struck me how one day that earth will be worth more than gold. Good earth and water, you know?
Got to Dagan and Leah's. Scooped the cat box, got Sammy and Annie fresh water and food...
...and while they took turns eating I got my tree fix out on the deck...
...while I watered plants.
Not sure what everything is (I'm no gardener) but they looked healthy.
A baby plant nursery, looks like.
I went inside and had a couple of chocolate chip cookies Leah left for me while I wrote for a while in a couple bookcards I had brought along in my purse. Sammy and Annie had greeted me, but weren't quite as friendly as usual. I wondered why Sammy wasn't walking over the bookcard trying to get some pettin', but I just wrote and recovered from the heat for a while.
I wondered why they were keeping their distance, so I finally got up to go check them out and make sure they really were okay. (You know cats, they are very friendly before the food dish hits the floor.)
And that is when I saw it.
A huge plant laying sideways on the floor! As I went over to right it...
...I heard cat feet pounding up the stairs. Sammy and Annie had run for the hills! I figured I wouldn't see them again for a while and the leery cat behavior mystery was solved--so I packed up and drove home. ;)
Now Leah, if you see this, I know how particular you are about everything and don't even know where you keep your vacuum or any cleaning tools so I left it as you see here. I hope that was okay? The cats seem to have never gone near it since whenever it got knocked off the wooden bench. My guess is that when the humans were away the cats were playing chase because they both acted guilty--ROFL! Good news is, the dirt was quite dry, so it should vacuum up pretty well and not be too much of a mess to clean up. Happy 4th--LOL!!
And a happy holiday to all those who have one today.
Happy Monday to everybody! :):)
