Well, I don't miss everything, I guess. Even though I never saw these patrol cars pull up (turned out the black one in the front there by the tree was an unmarked car)...
...I did watch as...
...three policemen escorted this woman clutching her dog in her arms and wiping away her tears...
...and hauled out the carrier (cat? small dog?)...
...to her car. They watched as she and her pets climbed in.
She just sat in the car and it looked like she might have been on a cell phone. The two policemen in the regular car left. The one in the unmarked car sat there for a good ten minutes before he left. I watched for over an hour. She had the backseat window cracked down, but never left.
Now I am not absolutely positive, but remember when I saw the patrol cars and ambulance here a little while back? Well, they escorted a woman (who looked a lot like this one) who was walking and holding her upper arm like it was hurt to the ambulance.
I'll probably never know, but the writer in me always wonders what the story is. ;)
I actually did some scribbling with my watercolor crayons on gessoed pages in the manila folder journal and smeared around with a baby wipe. Could use more layers of color, I suppose, but I was just glad to have a short playtime. :)
I figure these only take me a few minutes each and I have the whole journal to color backgrounds on all the pages...so that's something I can do little by little. Color always lifts my spirits.
This is what it looked like this morning when I got up. Apparently I may have slept through another thunderstorm.
And guess what? That car is still sitting in the same exact spot. The mystery deepens. If I ever hear any gossip at the mail boxes I'll let you know--ROFL! ;)
The sun was attempting to peek out between the cloud cover for about ten minutes.
Karma was out grazing on her cat grass.
Yesterday there was a bug of some kind that flew under that chair and Karma spent a good hour under there trying to find it.
She hasn't forgotten.
Why does she suddenly whip her head around and just know I am there on the other side of the glass door when I haven't moved or made a sound? How does she know?
Another mystery I'll probably never solve--LOL!
We've been having evening and late night thunderstorms. Had quite the light show on Thursday night and lost electricity for a short while. The rain clouds just keep rolling through.
Leah said that Blow's Sew and Vac got a hold of her and my sewing machine was ready to pick up. She was going to try to pick it up yesterday because they're not open today, but I never heard. (They were off visiting last night.) Leah said if she did get the machine she might come over to try to sew the pouch today. I pray my old machine will actually work again! :)
Tomorrow I go back to the dentist's to have them fix that filling that fell out. No need to say any more--LOL! I'll just be glad when it is all done and I am out of that chair and have hobbled home again. ;)
I had a wonderful time meeting Pam from the library! She brought me four books and has a couple more I mentioned on order already. They only have Pam and one other lady to deliver books, so it will be one of the two ladies who will come back until I might get my own volunteer one day. They'll return in three weeks. She said I can just return the books I am done with (normally on outreach we can keep them for six weeks!) but, since I will have some more books coming in pretty soon that are just from other branches, they hate to tie those books up for six weeks just till they get to me, you know, so they'll come back in around three weeks. What a sweet woman. Well, she's a book lover. I've found book lovers to be quite exceptional people on the whole. ;)
I even dropped down from two-DVDs-at-a-time to one-at-a-time with Netflix--which will start July 1st. More reading time. I didn't realize how much I missed library books until I had that small stack sitting on my table. I hope I can get back into the swing of things with making reading a regular part of my life again. Been so many years since I was a regular library patron. I'm sure it's kind of like riding a bicycle--LOL! :) And I've got the Janet Evanovich series coming a couple books at a time from Caroline, too! Whoohoo!
That's what's happening in Fargo. Or all I know about what's happening--which is never much--LOL! Have an exciting week!! :):)
Note: I just discovered that I cannot highlight anything at all on blogger. So I can't enlarge or change the font or add any color today.
