Surviving the stinky summer

Summer is almost over and I sure won’t miss it.

I don’t think the cats will either.

We had too many heatwaves in the Ottawa Valley, too many hot, sticky days and uncomfortable nights. Blerg! At least the morning walks were refreshing but some days, the air was moist and heavy.

I had to put a thin towel under my laptop when I was doing my homework.

I got in a fair bit of writing over the past few months, but mostly for school assignments. I am so relieved that the semester is over! It was a challenge with two night classes and working full-time.

I’m at the tail end of an email server migration for work this weekend. It has been six years since the previous one.

This morning I spent quality time with my furry darlings in-between testing things.

Every day is Black Cat Appreciation Day around here (or BC tolerance Day)

Otherwise, my writing activities lately involve letters and birthday cards for my grandchildren. I’m going to encourage them to learn cursive too. That way, they will be the chosen few who can read the scripts of ancient times before 2018.

Thanks for dropping by and not disturbing the Tabby.

What are you writing or working on?
