Ah Monday

Sorry for the lack of posts -- I've been busier than a one armed piccolo player, as an old friend used to say. The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel and it is really a light and not the usual on-coming train.

This was Saturday here at the peaceful retreat on the bay:


This is today -- bands of clouds rolling in ahead of a weak storm that is going to bring in bands of showers for the next couple of days but the rest of the week is supposed to be warm and dry:


Token spent the afternoon at the doggie beauty shop while I was sitting in the lobby of the tire place, getting a new front tire and an appointment for an alignment next week. I hope to get the car down to K&M maybe tomorrow to have the mechanic check out the engine -- its been sucking gas and I need to have her check it out before I start planning road trips. The car did drive a lot better with good rubber -- I had cord showing on the bad tire. The spare on the right front (from last month's flat) was declared a fine tire and when I come in next Monday, they will have looked for a used tire to use as a spare.

Token looks and smells wonderful and is quite dapper looking wearing the black bandanna with bright red heart shaped strawberries, cherries and ladybugs that his groomer put on him. He usually tolerates bandannas for only a short period of time before he tries scratching them off. He seems to like this one and is snoozing away in his bed below the computer table. Bailey cat is her indiferent self, snoozing away in the chair below the window she has proclaimed hers.

Now that I'm home from running errands today, I'm going to enjoy what's left of my day off watching the birds on the bay scurrying to eat what is on the freshly revealed buffet table as the tide goes out -- including this eagle:
