The topic: I love this weather...
Wednesday, November 20, 2002 This weather is so nice. We're having a little warming trend right now, today it's supposed to get up into the 90s. There is a mild Santa Ana, which blows in from the desert, bringing warm air with it. The air is also fairly clear and crisp. Last night, after I had the cats fed, the dog fed and the outfronts fed, I got a glass of wine, grabbed a blanket and put it over a lawn chair and watched the stars come out. This was about five thirty last night. I was barefoot and in sweatpants and a tank top. It was so relaxing. The sky hadn't deepened yet and the outline of the trees against the blue of the sky was striking. The wind would blow through one tree, then the next. The sound of the rustling of the leaves was music to my ears. Brian got home fairly late and he came out to sit and watch, too. The sky was so very clear, the stars were like diamonds. We finally came in about seven. At nine thirty last night, it was 64.4 degrees outside.
And our walk this morning was also very nice. I didn't need a sweatshirt, a teeshirt was enough. As we walked up the street, we looked to the heavens and, although the sun wasn't up all the way just yet, there was a jet that glowed orange in the rising sunlight. The contrails were also orange. And we also saw a late star or planet in the sky. Brian believes it was the space station, but I looked that up and the space station wasn't in our area at that time. It was pretty impressive, though. You don't often see that as light as the sky was.
The outfronts barely ate anything last night. The food was only picked at. *sigh* And SpotTee wasn't here this morning, either. KittyMeeze and OC were, but that was it. We had the front windows open last night and I heard growling. I walked up to the window and Richie was standing on his tiptoes looking out at Repete, who was getting a drink from the fountain (its right under the window). I don't know who was growling, but I told Repete he was more than welcome to come inside anytime he wanted.
I have to go shopping today for moist food for the outfronts and do some stocking up before Brian leaves. And tomorrow is my mammogram. :yippee
I'm in the process of changing the service for Brian's new cell phone. I just called and it will cost us .35 a minute for roaming charges. If he uses the phone fifteen minutes a day while he's gone, that would be over $60.00, just for the roaming! That doesn't include long distance charges. So, that could be a lot of money. I just upgraded to the digital one rate and an additional 1000 minutes, which will cost about $70.00 for a month. That way, there won't be a problem if Brian has to call his brother or me. I'm now waiting for billing so I can change the service back at the end of the cycle so we don't get charged for more than we need. The hold time is estimated at ten minutes. :zzz
The cats are driving me nuts right now. Want to eat, want to be held, want to sit on the desk, it's really hard to get anything done when I'm tied to the phone. And I can't use my footstool right now because Mystie is curled up and sleeping on it. I'm not comfortable at all right now.
And it's looking like I'll get to keep the Bronco! Woohoo!
I'm having a hard time concentrating right now. So, I guess I'm done.
