📸  Attachment  📸  Cadee @Cadee2719 , our boy has NO idea I will be leaving for Kroger about 10am TODAY = I have been up since 6am with him. Lol, that part is fine. But as usual it is like HE KNOWS when I NEED to get ready to leave = he has been IN AND OUT all morning, changed his food TWICE (moving forward we sticking to Friskies from Walmart) and of course DEMANDING I sit down and pet him. Hmmm, sounds like he needs to issue me a PAYCHECK/lol  🤣😂

 

Latest thing, JUMPING into my bed to be up all close and personal. Nope as he will NOT be wearing a FLEA COLLAR and forget about the OTHER OPTIONS - put stuff on him (probably claw me to death), capture him and take to a vet for shots (lol, a trap - h.ll NO, he is feral and has SURVIVED outside, so you know he one WISE kittie).

 

Anyway, I can now PREDICT when he is about to JOIN me and put my FREE hand on his back to PREVENT him jumping. Lol, of course I get the EVIL EYE AND TAIL SWISHING.

 

I did check Walmart for some PET SAFE FLEA OPTIONS but found none. Doing the HOME VERSION I found online.

 

Dawn dish detergent and water in a shallow dish, UNDER a night light that stays on when it gets DARK.

 

Of course I have the area BEHIND HIS FOOD/WATER AREA blocked when he is visiting me. No need to have him all up in the mixture. Already all up in my Utility Room checking out the leak there. Hmmm, maybe he can FIX it for me.

 

Anyway, it is about 8am here in Cave Spring, Virginia.

 

Hoping the b from next door MOVES her car so I can get into MINE to head to Kroger. She is a real r.dneck, runs a daycare from h.ll and WE DONOT LIKE each other. Office told me to call COPS on her as she luvs to BLOCK my access to SIDEWALK. Lol, I will IF needed THIS MORNING IF she is OUTSIDE when I am later.

 

The age of my daughter and FORGETS I pay rent too.

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🐈

MS. IDAHO @Cadee2719 , some questions for you. As usual, NO PRESSURE to answer!!!  🙃

 

[1] I am guessing your California legal papers (will and so on) have to be redone with your move to Idaho? I have allowed this issue to stress me out as I would have to redo my Virginia ones IF I move back to Florida.  😭😭😭  Ideally want to REMAIN in Virginia for as long as I can drive.  👍👍👍

 

[2]  🐕🐈  Any furbabies in your NEW neighborhood in Idaho - owned and/or feral? Lol, I am RENAMING our boy to Mr. And I have FINALLY learn't CAT LANGUAGE and I guess can NOW be called that Crazy Old Cat Woman/lol  🤣😂   TODAY, as usual he was FUSSING with me as he wanted me to SIT DOWN and pet him.  🙄🙄🙄  Keep in mind he basically IGNORED ME ALL OF YESTERDAY. My begging for some Furbaby Attention went unheard. At least he said SEE YOU LATER when he left out about 3:30pm TODAY. Usually he just walks out my door = NO thank you, zero. Got to luv him.

 

Okay my friend, that is it for now and NO RUSH on a response.

 

HOPE you and your son are well  🤗🤗🤗

Good afternoon. Got up early today then spent the morning working my daily puzzles. Took my walk and then checked my mail. HMPH! Nothing from AARP. Checked junk mail and there they were. All my lovely messages got sent to junk! So I sat and fixed them all. I did not tell my mail client to send AARP mail to spam so I have no idea how that happened. 

Anyway here I am checking to make sure my new friends are all ok. 
l will be busy tomorrow getting myself out the door for my eye appt. I’ll be using Uber because I always get dilated for a retina check. That will make it hard for me to read my mail until sometime in the afternoon, so do not panic if  I’m a bit late tomorrow. I will see you all tomorrow. Until then LUV TO ALl.

Cadee @Cadee2719 , I am sitting here TRYING to figure out the BEST solution to my ever INCREASING living accommodations from h.ll.  😭😭😭

 

Gosh, I still MARVEL at you picking up and leaving your h.ll in California.

 

NOW you are in Idaho, yes - dealing with getting your medical stuff set up BUT finally SAFE!!!  💃💃💃

 

Anyway, I will update you guys on my MOVING PROJECT. If Cadee did it, so can I!!!  👍👍👍

(1 comment) Dr. Diane @DianeB887812 aka Dr. Walker, hope you ENJOYED your walk THIS MORNING. Do you change routes? When I walk, I do to eliminate the boredom

 

It is nearly 7pm for us BOTH (you in Florida, me in Virginia) and AFTER a much needed ALL DAY NAP  🙄🙄🙄,  I am headed to get my soak ready.  👍👍👍

 

Was TOO TIRED before nap to do the soak = falling asleep.

 

The NAP was possible as UPSTAIRS neighbors from h.ll have been GONE since Friday.  💃💃💃

 

Need to check mailbox and take trash to dumpster way in the back TONIGHT. Hate this chore, but....

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

I also took a nap today. 

My 30 min morning walk is a lovely tree lined sidewalk. If I want a longer walk, I can continue and circle the extended block. That takes 90 min. 

And if I want to take a hike, I can walk to the near by park and take a forest trail. That can take 2-3 hours. 

Every one is used to seeing me walking and waves and says hi. Even the maintenance crew as they zip by in their golf carts.

📸  Attachment  📸  (5 comments) Any other Nero Wolfe FANS out there? Fed Mr. at 6am and NOW back in bed LISTENING to this Audiobook. Overtired and you know how that is. Tired but not falling asleep. Anyway, audiobooks have saved me many times from myself. And what I mean is, we need REST to COPE with what life brings our way. Many nights audiobooks have been my SLEEP AID. So grateful  💃💃💃  So tell me about the BOOKS you like - the ones you read/listen to for PLEASURE.

  Are you familiar with the Libby Library App.  You sign up at your local library and you are able to get books that you can read/listen to from a number of libraries.  If they do not have it they place you on a waiting list to receive it.  Check with your local library about it.

Thanks Cadee @Cadee2719 , I will keep it in mind for when I am back to NORMAL, whatever that will be.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Lol, remember the Farmer's Calendar I bought LAST year. Guess where it STILL IS. Yes, on my bookshelf.

 

I NEED to move to regain what SANITY I have left. So that is PRIORITY right now.

 

Thanks for info my friend.

 

Luv you,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

I find it difficult to read but I have a movie library and a Streaming service. Last night I watched and fell asleep to “His Dark Materials” I also watch “Pride and Prejudice“ a lot. I had a year where I watched “Contact” over and over. Many of the Marvel movies are also favorites. My walking play list songs are therms from many of my favorite movies.

1 comment [Saturday 7/13/24 2:28am ET - yes a restless night]

 

How are YOU doing?  🤔

 

Lol, one of my nights of restlessness but know this too shall pass!!!  👍👍👍

 

HAPPY DANCE, neighbors ABOVE me was NOT here LAST night.  💃💃💃

 

Their car was still here yesterday morning (Friday) and I had grit my teeth for a day of them NOT at work and on my LAST NERVE. But life RESCUED me and they left at lunch time. Am I getting a PEACEFUL WEEKEND???

 

Mr. No Name was VERY WEIRD yesterday. Was lounging on the SIDE of my porch TWICE instead of ON porch/steps or UNDER my car. Lol, about gave me my 1st heart attack as I was busy looking UNDER my car to see IF he needed to come in for water and food. Hmmm, interesting.

 

Then last night I was OUTSIDE about the time I turned on my Porch Light (9pm) talking to Rosa as we were BOTH concerned about a RANDOM CAR parked in front of our apt building. Lol, she is nosey like me (we the UNOFFICIAL NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH). WE will ask folks HANGING out in FRONT of OUR apts how they are and IF they waiting on someone = drug dealers and their customers NO LONGER hang out in FRONT of our apts.  👍👍👍

 

Anyway, 2 young guys was backed in BESIDE my car which is also backed in. And yes, smoking their LEGAL weed. I explained to the nice youngsters that this OLD lady has allergies and ONE window in her Studio Apt which she has had to CLOSE earlier than planned due to the weed scent in parking lot. Gosh, go smoke it in the woods of which we have LOTS on our hill. Anyway, they APOLOGIZED and hopefully this was a ONE TIMER.

 

So Mr. interrupts me and Rosa's chat as I had to go INSIDE to let him IN.  🙄🙄🙄

 

Another WEIRD change. After eating and drinking water, he goes UNDER MY BED. This is the 1st time. Okay, wants some ALONE TIME I see/lol. So I ignore him and watch Poirot on PBS and about ready to fall out my chair = sleepy.

 

Mr. is still UNDER MY BED.  🤔🤔🤔

 

He REFUSED to relocate out my door. Finally had to use my broom to GENTLY nudge him AWAKE and hopefully out my door. Lol, I even SHUT my door which would usually have him DASHING OUTSIDE. Nope - NO movement. Totally EXHAUSTED and NOT wanting to FALL ASLEEP while he is in my apt, I finally got him out. Lol, he was very angry and fought my broom. He sat on my porch LOOKING at my now CLOSED door like I donot believe she put me out look. Felt really bad, but needed to crawl into bed for the night.

 

Now to see IF he stops by AGAIN...

 

I HOPE so. He always came back in spite of Ms. Geraldine and her son using a broom to move him out of their way and PREVENT him from getting into the apt. Nope, he was NEVER allowed INSIDE and the whole complex would HEAR her YELLING at him EVERY MORNING. Lol, she would TRIP over him coming out her door IF she was NOT paying attention.

 

Luv you ALL,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗
