Our week started very pleasantly with a delicious turkey dinner cooked by good pal, Connie. We talked about why we felt thankful, made a few toasts, and were still all in bed before 9 pm. A good evening with Canadian friends. Trev and Val skyped us from Victoria and showed us their two Shi-tzu dogs, Maggie and Riley. They are very like my daughter's dog Cooper. It is always a pleasure to speak with friends!
The rest of the week flowed past in a dream, at least for me. Chris as my beta reader is going very slowly on his read of my novella. I think it is not really his cup of tea. Bit too chick-lit for him? Anyway, I have begun some more revision, but lots to go before I dare submit to an agent. That should be good for a few laughs as the pink slips roll in.
Our weather is cooler this past week, with more rain, less humidity. While visiting at Bill and MaryEllen's place, we heard a loud crack, and saw a big tree split and fall. It was tragic. We had been waiting for an oncoming storm which had these enormous dark grey clouds rolling off the ocean, and we expected a storm to beat the band. It bypassed us, but the following wind was something else, and that brought the tree down. A little later there was a cloudburst that drenched everything.
All the cats are thriving. Still no sign of any kittens from Fredi. We delight in their antics outside - they are so nosy! Like any domestic cat.
