Insanely and otterly adorable! The hydrangeas are gorgeous too!
I just got in. Busy week but a good one. I'm going to sleep now. Went down to Ruthann and Ted's for a bit--they were drinking cider and I joined them. Please remind me not to drink hard cider if i haven't eaten dinner. Apparently I've become quite a lightweight. I waddled home and wanted to say hello but now it is time to visit the ZZZZs. Good night.

Was walking Shadow at 6:30am and saw my neighbor down the block (she sold her townhouse, had an estate sale last weekend and remember I got a floor lamp). She was moving last minutes odds and ends to her new apartment. The moving truck for the big stuff had come a few days ago but some stuff wasn't ready to go. Like she hadn't yet emptied the kitchen drawers, etc.
She had already done one carload. Before 6:30am!!! She looked exhausted and her heel spur and knee were bothering her. She's about 63 yrs old and I used to go to WW with her every Sunday morning. I asked if she needed help. She hesitated....but then admitted yes, she did.
So I came home, deposited Shadow, showered and went back to help. We did 2 more carloads -- load, go to apt, unload up to 6th floor. And loaded up the car for a 3rd batch that is going to charity. Then she asked me to wrap up a pottery collection and would I mind wiping out the fridge? (I kept asking what more I could do because she looked so tired after the past few weeks.) She had paid cleaning ladies to come the previous day so the rest of the house was done/looked good & clean, but in one of the carloads was food from the freezer and fridge. So the cleaning ladies had not been able to do the fridge. So she had to go meet someone at her new apt who was coming to hang artwork, so I went back and did that.
If I hadn't just happened by, she would have struggled all by herself. The reason she is moving is her husband is now in a nursing home with Alzheimers and is is moving to a more affordable, smaller apartment. Just like my old neighbors who moved to CA last year (new neighbor Susan that Jane met bought their place) -- they thought they could do it by themselves. I kept offering to help them but they said it was under control....till the last 2 days they caved. I ended up cleaning out their fridge too, LOL.
Maybe my next career could be helping people exit houses and get them ready for the new owners, LOL
Well, Georgia Tech finally found their offense and won.
Ohio State killed their cupcake, 6-0.
Now the Braves are at the Cubbies, so we have WGN on to watch that. If we win, we clinch the division for the season. (Or if the Nationals lose later today.) Our magic number is 1.
Ummm... (regarding the bolded part... )
VT needed 3 overtime periods to beat Marshall.
JMU won their game, apparently in some pretty nasty wet weather. We weren't there, but our high school's former drum major is in the Marching Royal Dukes and she shared a photo on Facebook of the MRDs marching to the stadium in the pouring rain.
We lost our football game Friday night. It was SO close. But the other team got a touchdown in the last minute and got a two-point conversion to pull ahead. Our team did make some pretty incredible plays and really played hard, so it was a tough loss. There was also a controversial "injury" to one of the opposing team's players that soured the mood.
Oh well. In the long run it's only a game. But this is the second game we've lost by only one point, so it's disappointing to have a 1-3 record when the guys have played so hard. (We lost our second game of the season by one point in double overtime.)
Reminds me of the time I drove through a swarm of bees. Luckily for me, the passenger's side of the windshield got the worst of it, not the driver's side, and I was able to see through all the splatters enough to get to a gas station and make an attempt to clean the windshield. It was really disgusting. I am still extremely glad I made the decision to drive the Tribute that time instead of the Miata, because I would have had the top down on the Miata.
