No, this isn't the new one - this is an older photo of Fidget. If you can picture a skinny bedraggled kitten about 1/4 that size, you have the varmint that turned up at our front door early this morning. He couldn't be more than a couple of months old and he was thirsty and hungry. We fixed that quickly and now he's lapping up a lot of cuddling along with the food and water.
My camera is acting up again and the battery wouldn't hold out long enough to download but if you see Fidget, you've seen the small Dingbat. Spunky and Fidget seem to take the interloper in stride so far.
The girls both had a great time on their field trips. Came home from school with what looks to be an accumulation from their entire school year. Rebecca emptied hers on my bed - we've since moved it all to the dining room table which is groaning under the weight. Thanksgiving Dinner weighed less, I think.
Tomorrow after school, when I'm sure the last of it has arrived, I'll wade through all the papers, books, trinkets, and do something. They will help.
It's still hot and no end in sight, at least for the next few days. They're predicting 100 ° for Fresno toward the middle of next week. We're usually a few degrees cooler.
Update - the local news just said we might drop to high 80's tomorrow but the air quality will be lousy.
My neighbor Dawn and I dropped the younger kids at school and set off on shopping. I picked up Elcie's video and a pair of just above the knee denim shorts for me along with a couple of matching tops. I'm set for the summer unless I can find one more pair of shorts just like these in khaki. They didn't have my size today.
We were done and back here in an hour. She knows my shopping list as well as I do and we don't mess around. Much more fun to get back here, put it away, and settle down for a card game or two. We went back out after we picked up her daughter from Kindergarten to pick up some groceries - first trip was for staples - the toilet paper, laundry soap run. We just didn't feel like doing both of them on one trip.
Fish sticks, fries, and peas for dinner along with some sliced tomato and avocado. Tomorrow I'll probably cook.
Elcie is on her second watching of the video already. She does that a lot.
I'm feeling better and a little more awake. It was probably a combination of heat and sleep cycle confusion. I do that once in a while. It's 11:30 now and I'll try for a reasonable bedtime. Tomorrow will be another busy day.
Rochelle said something funny and now I can't remember what it was. I should start making notes.
Take care everyone.
