It is Tuesday morning already and I forgot to take a picture with my trusty thermal coffee mug. :( Trust me. It is right here by my side. I'm sure the folks over at T Stands For Tuesday can visualize it quite easily--as could any of you, right? LOL! ;)
We have had the most gorgeous days!!! I've even believed the weather app on my cell phone when it has said 0% chance of rain and left the living room windows open all night, too, so that it is nice and cool in here in the mornings.
Been somewhere around 80 (26C) during the days...
...and around 60ish (15 C) at night. Perfect, perfect weather!!
Even when we have had more clouds than blue sky there's been no rain to speak of the last couple days.
I've been reading away because Pam from the library was coming Monday afternoon to pick up my books. I had one book I never got to, so she renewed that one for me and brought two more. She's waiting for some Cat Who books from another library and will bring a bunch of those when they arrive, too. We had a great long visit.
Miss Karma loves it when the windows are open.
She spends a lot of time watching the swallows dart in and out of the balconies.
They love to build nests on top of the balcony lights.
Kids run about.
She can watch the construction workers over at that apartment building...
...and people come and go in their cars.
These guys scared her, though, and she fled. The sound of the big black flapping tarp was too much for her, I guess. Makes me wonder if cats have a natural reaction to anything that sounds like giant wings coming to snatch them up for lunch? Karma probably knows she'd be a banquet, eh?
No clue what they were up to. The one guy moved a bicycle out of the way?
They were measuring and cutting pieces of tarp. Leaks? Landscaping up by the building maybe? Sorry about a few of the pictures. Shooting through the screen...the camera won't always focus past the mesh.
Sometimes Karma sat in her chair on the other side of the table, too.
But this morning something else caused her to bolt from her spy perch.
This guy was shooting water out of the fire hydrant for a little while.
Maybe fear of loud hissing sounds is an instinctive snake aversion? Karma definitely cherishes her well-being, let me tell you. ;)
Haven't made it over to see McFamily since Friday. And I can't seem to copy and paste the pictures of Ian that Leah has shared in her dropbox file. I'll have extra pictures of Ian I can post even if I haven't been able to make it over, she said...well, if I can figure out how to move them. Copy and paste is not working for some reason. I am planning to go over today...we'll see...plans are always tentative in my world--LOL! But whenever I go over next time I am bringing my laptop so Leah can show me how to steal her pictures of Mr. Ian. ;)
This gorgeous weather is supposed to stick around for a while. Karma and I are in seventh heaven!! I hope you are having beautiful days wherever you are. Happy, happy Tuesday!!
