Lint Snow

I had the dryer vent cleaned today and at one point, a lot of little bits came out and it really looked like snow.

When I opened the blinds over the sliding glass doors today, I said "Squirrel!" And then "Two squirrels!" and then "Three squirrels!" but it took "Four squirrels!" for Shiva to leave wet food and come look. They're so funny because they're so possessive of wherever they are. If they move, they're funny there. They chase each other around and up and down the railings and across the chair and table. And today one put its front paws up on the sliding glass doors and looked in, right in front of Shiva, and he banged his head on the glass again. Not a bad bang, no concussion.

I knew Spirit would want to hide behind the water heater in the utility room when the lint man came, which is a bad idea because that's where his noisy blower machine was going to be, so I put her in the bedroom, with the door just open a bit, when I saw his van. Well, when he came in, she dashed behind the water heater. It took her a looooong time to come out and then she had to sit on me for a while. Next year I'll have to close her in.

After he left, the mailtruck went by and since it was raining, I put shoes on as well as my coat to go get mail. Then I realized I had two letters to mail and decided to take those and drop them in the drive-by box at the post office, which I was not able to do. The box was so full that I shoved mine way in between other letters so nobody could just reach in and take them. In the mail I got some beads I ordered during a sale, but one color was not what I ordered. I called and talked to the owner's husband and he thought he filled my order, so he wasn't going to tell his wife I called! He said to keep the wrong ones and he'll ship the right ones. With bead tubes, paying to get them back is usually more than the tubes are worth.

At that point, my head was falling into the keyboard, so I took a nap. I set the phone alarm for 8pm, but it woke me up in a critical part of a dream so I reset for 8:30pm and that was fine.
