One to Watch

What day is today?

Because no one is leaving the house, no one seems to know what day it is anymore. I have been working my regular hours, but I don’t have my usual after work activities going on, so I have a hard time knowing from day to day. I thought it was weird, but it seems that almost everyone is going through the same thing.

With the holiday coming up this week, I think it’s going to be worse. I will have my Monday on Tuesday, and Friday will come after only 4 days of work. It’s going to be insane. As long as I go to work on the right day and stay home on the right day, I should be ok. What about everyone else?

Where Kittens Roam Free

Where kittens roam free

The bookstore mentioned in the above linked article brings kittens to the store in hopes they will be adopted. There is an adoption fee, but it includes all vaccinations and the kittens are all healthy.

I loved seeing the little kittens among the books. I could have done without the earwax removal commercials all throughout the article, though.

Puppies were mentioned later in the article, but it seems that they aren’t in the bookstore. This is probably a wise idea.

Ripple

I had several friends and family members post the above linked video. It’s one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs.

I thought it was just random people singing it, then I saw that Keelin Garcia, Jimmy Buffet and David Crosby were some of the singers.   Well worth the watch!
