Recliner with Spirit

I finished Sunday's paper last night and planned to go on to Monday's, but I kept going to sleep. I went to bed to read at 1am and slept so much that I only read 10 pages in an hour and I went ahead to sleep at 2am. I left the alarm set to noon, and even then changed it to 1pm.

I went off to PT and it turns out that most of my rotations in shoulders are about what they were last time, and that I need to just move through minor pain to exercise. The therapist gave me her work number in case I need to talk to her about something and told me to buy something like this. She gave me the company URL, and they have another one like this, a little cheaper, but I've actually used one like this one before. At least 21 years ago -- I can remember the door -- but I don't remember why I used it and I'm pretty sure I don't own it anymore.

The weather.com desk thing that turns up when I boot up the computer has an ad and I usually just ignore it, but it had On The Border once, and I looked to their website: they have a location a few blocks from the Kaiser clinic with the PT, and they don't have any near where my brother & his family live. I decided to stop and have lunch. I just downloaded the nutritional info and I had more than 1000 calories and 48 grams of protein. It would be very easy to have something with less protein if I wanted some later.

I came home and got this far before I was very sleepy so I put in a load of laundry and slept from 9pm to a bit after midnight in the recliner with Spirit. She gets so long under the duvet -- you'd think she'd been stretched. When I woke up, I moved the laundry to the dryer and watched the recording of the late news I'd had made.

Gorillas bare their teeth to fight sexism.

James Patterson released two books on the same day last week: one of his thrillers, and one for kids.

I finished online about 6am this morning and then read Monday's paper. I got to bed at 8am and still had trouble reading because of sleeping. I set the alarm for 4pm and went to sleep at 9am, but when the alarm went off, I just turned it off and woke up at 5:15pm.

I found two of the sparkle balls in cat fur, which is probably why the cats didn't see them out in public. I put those in the box and Junie was so unhappy that she brought me a purple one; I don't know from where. It went into the box, too, because I was going to sleep. She was even more unhappy. When I woke up at one point, she had semi-spooned with Loki (they were roughly straight and she was an inch apart) and was washing his back. He turned his head up and then put it back down.

I ordered some office things from Office Depot and they came today. The scissors I've been using at the recliner are starting to need sharpening and I don't have anything for that (I do have one for my sewing Fiskars, which I kept) so I bought Fiskars. I leaned over to pull the old scissors out of the box on the end table and they wasn't there. I checked down the sides of the recliner and all around and they weren't there. I went on doing other things and then realized that they could be in the newspaper bag. I do sometimes leave the scissors on them when I'm reading part of the paper, so I pulled out Sunday's & Monday's papers and yes, it was in Sunday's. I plan to cut fishing line with it now.

I have some things coming via USPS so I just went out to get the mail (all went to the mixed paper recycling bin) and I saw fireflies on the way out and back in! The moon was beautiful, too.
