Whew I'm tired! It's been a week of early mornings and late nights, capped off this morning with a 9 am trip to the vet. Sigh... fat orange cat has a tube in his penis again, and gets to sleep over for a few days.

Not so productive as last week, either, but everything got done that needed to. Plus the deck is finished except for the pretty details (and the real stairs.) I didn't do the majority of work, Scott did, but I was available to help when he needed it.

The Creepy Dudes will be finished this week, perhaps tonight. I'm going to walk over to the store in a second to get this week's paper (and, more importantly, this week's coupons.) Maybe there's a Michael's flyer with a coupon for framing. That'd be handy, since I need to go in to town one day this week, and a stop at Michael's wouldn't be out of the way.

The weather's getting more autumn-y, and the crock pot has replaced the blender on the counter. Summer is just too darn hot to leave a pot of soup cooking all day, but weather like this makes me want to get back into that routine. I'll bake some bread to go with it. Ahhh, comfort food - perfect remedy to the hectic past week. The other benefit is supper cooks itself, essentially, leaving me free to spend the whole day tomorrow(?) doing what I please, perhaps working on Marilyn's quilts. We'll see.

Gahhhhh!!!! The part about your orange cat ... poor fellow!

Your deck is looking great. I'd make a joke about your coming and doing mine, except you've probably only heard that a thousand times.
