And yet you're still here LP! Blink and two hours evaporate from your life.

My Mom was like that. She had a gas stove with two ovens: one down low, and the other above the cooking surface. Her SIL convinced her to use the upper oven because she wouldn't have to bend. Problem was Mom was short (5' on her good days) and the first time she used the upper oven she pulled the shelf out...then forgot it was there and hit her forehead on it when she set the dish down on a burner. That was also the last time she used the upper oven! Had that darned racing stripe on her forehead for weeks.

I must be logged in on my other computer. I hate Windows 8 because I think I have shut the browser down, but it keeps windows open until I physically close them.

I am up now as my back and sciatica are having spasm attacks and I can't get comfortable enough to sleep. But I am going to go try my chair and see if that works. I have to be up early to finish the cake.

Buttered the cats, now sitting and eating my breakfast and taking my meds.

Hey, it looks like Hallmark is doing a Jesse Stone marathon. The rest of my day is set.

Was that to keep them occupied or because you hadn't had your coffee yet?

They were both looking at me expectantly, so I got them both a finger of butter and let them lick it off. I try to just do that for them once a week. Yes, they are spoiled.

That's good for hairballs, too, Fi.

I just got back from the grocery and hardware stores. I needed cilantro and ro-tel for dinner and some more 0000 steel wool. I got back just in time to see the end of the second Stone series.

I sometimes put a blob of butter on a cat's paw when I want it to stop distracting me.
