Cat Pastimes & Blogger Problems

Dear John,
 
I sat down to talk to you last night and Blogger jammed on me. So brace yourself!
 
I took a fibro crash day today. Last night I got to bed around midnight. I woke up at 7:00 and could tell I needed a fibro day - not surprising after working a late Friday and busy Saturday - so I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep. The dog woke me up at 9:00 wanting to go out. I let him back in and lay down, not expecting to go back to sleep but in the middle of a Maggie-cuddle. The next thing I knew, it was 2:00 in the afternoon. I can't even remember the last time I slept like that. I really could have slept all through the day and tonight. I got up and made it as far as the living room couch, turned on an NCIS marathon, and took two naps. I'm feeling better for the crash day.
 
I want to update you on your cats. Maggie is getting bigger, long and thin, and had figured out how to climb up onto the window shelves I have for them. The first time she tried I heard this scratching noise and found her trying to climb up the wall, until Abby pulled her down. The next day she realized she could get one paw onto the shelf and pull herself up. The first time she succeeded she didn't stay there long - she was terrified to be so far off the ground. Now she climbs up more easily and likes to stay there. Our little girl is growing up.
 
Hunter has a hobby I haven't told you about. I leave small bowls of water by each bathroom sink for the cats. The big one they share with Jethro can look like cat hair soup by the time I get home from work, and it gets the dog backwash in it. Hunter has claimed the one in our bathroom for himself. He drinks from it, but mostly he plays in it. He dips his paw in the water, throws the water into the sink, and watches it run down the drain. I get splashed if I'm there at the time, and there are always dried water droplets all over the mirror and the wall. It's a relatively harmless pastime, and it's fascinating to watch.
 
We're all ready for bed here. Tonight's low will be in the 60s, so I won't be the only person in town who's sleeping with the windows open. There are storms expected tomorrow. I know I won't be sleeping through another day. When the storms come, Jethro will take care of that!
 
Love you so much,
Joan.
 
PS - I had an adorable photo I wanted to show you tonight, but for some reason Blogger isn't letting me insert it. I'll try again tomorrow. Love you!

PPS - I finally persuaded Blogger to let the photo in. Hope you like it!
