Notice the lack of cushions on the chair? The cats were climbing them, so Dad stowed them for a while to give them some chance of surviving.
On Saturday I brought the afghan out again, and didn't get to use it again because the cats took it over almost immediately. It looks a little different now, though:
I think the cat grew.
That's my guess, anyway.
What a difference a year and a bit makes, right?

That's right, I suggest daffodils instead. Not usually what people want to hear, but hey. If you want wildlife around -- and most people do -- you sort of have to plan for it to be around, right?
I sure hope that I'm wrong on that.

Actual post later today. Or maybe tomorrow. Or sometime. We'll see.

That's it for today, I'm afraid. It's been a fairly exhausting week, what with many (MANY) summer staff interviews, getting my final surgical appointments in order, and... Brussels (edited to add Baghdad, sadly), which really shouldn't be the last thing on this list. Still, I guess it's human nature that self will out, even as humanity proves once again that it too often lacks its namesake.
More blathery-type typing in the next day or so, maybe, depending on what my mood does. In the meantime, just enjoy the Bobness.

These two very pointless photos (do you like the artsy blinds shot?) were taken with my tablet because my phone was too busy playing music to my bluetooth speaker.
That was a sentence that honestly makes sense these days. My life's gotten weird, at some point, I think.
And what's a camera, again? Poor camera, you really do need to come out for a spin soon.

I'm certainly not complaining.
Anyway, this is just a quick post for anyone who was wondering about the surgery thing and isn't local enough to have heard the news. Construction flooding at the hospital has closed half of the operating rooms for an indefinite period. This, of course, means that dozens -- probably more like hundreds if you count the smaller surgeries -- of operations have been postponed.
They're going to continue the pre-op stuff to get it out of the way, and reschedule the last blood test when they know my date.
This could, depending on the wait, be a good thing. Yep, believe it or not.
As it was, the surgical date was cutting it awfully close to the start of spring staff training, and since we have pretty much a new crew this year I'm kinda sorta needed. Now, if I somehow get a date even closer to spring training it'll blow, but if (and considering the uncertainty of everything, this seems more likely) the new date is AFTER training, it'll be ok. Or at least better.
So yeah. Limbo again, but this time with the thing in sight at least.
I'll keep you posted. Have a good weekend.

Last night I tried The Spice is Right. It tastes like cinnamon and cloves, with a kick at the end from the chili. I approve.
This morning's was Electric Lemonade. Let me tell you, this one goes down quickly enough that I was a little worried I'd be buzzing. Very tasty.
Back to work for me now. Tea dude? His job's done for the day.

You're looking at lava rock, Cat's Eye quartz, and rough Lapis Lazuli.
Oh, and a new spinner ring. I always look for fidget rings, and I had luck this time. There were a few.
I grabbed the brass ring.
Stop typing, Dee.
