I work from home. Most of my actually "work" takes place outside of my home but today is an in-home office day. It's a gorgeous picture perfect day so I can open the windows wide.

Pacanis - What a beautiful time of year to go to Presque Isle. I used to ride my bike there. I lived in Erie for 5 years when I was a kid. And BTW, I hear you on "gassing" up in Ohio. Whenenver we go to new york to visit family we stop at Exit 235 in Ohio and fill up the tank b4 we cross the border into PA.

Just took a big tray of zucchini-coconut bars out of the oven. Will frost with cinnamon confectioners' sugar frosting when completely cooled.

Have two baguettes on their second rise. Should go into the oven in about 15 minutes.

I'll spend some time today doing alterations on a young girl's prom gown. Have to shorten it 8 inches, take in the bodice and shorten the halter. She's short. It's going to take some time with the hem since there are 3 skirts in all. It's a very puffy dress.

Need to spend the afternoon writing. Have lots of columns that need to be finished.

Buck and I have resumed our warm weather practice of porch settin' now that the weather's agreeable. Lots of time to play with the kittens. We'll stay out on the porch until about 8 p.m., then come in for dinner.

DIL just took the DG's to her folks house for the day so that leaves me free to do work stuff around the house, prepare for my own work in a day or two, and go visit my mom to bathe her, do her hair and take some treats. plus, since it'll be quiet, I may just break out the vacuum and feather duster, oh, I 'am' feeling spry today. I'll also try to get in a visit to DS's friend at the hospital. if there are too many people there though, it only tires him out so I'll step in and look and go from there. depends too on the atmosphere and the mood.sorry, *in case of confusion, he was supposed to go home from the hospital which didn't work out that day, in the above post by me.

Been all over the place today, not done yet. Went shopping for a new fridge, it will be here tomorrow. I need to fold some laundry, then a little later I am taking out cat to the Humane Society. I love him and he's so sweet, but he keeps peeing in 1 room and I think I smell it in another since I shut him out of there. His box is and always has been kept immaculate.... I dont know what his problem is. Probably just doesnt like the kids, and I cant make them go to the Humane Society. I'm gonna cry.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

oh Suzi, I'm sorry! I had to leave one of my cats there once, it's not easy.

Have you tried moving his litter box to the room he's using..or just putting it in a more private place? Lily Lily Queen of cats won't use her box if there's anyone watching or just passing by the room it's in. OR you can try to change the litter for a different kind... good luck!

He didnt start til Christina was born. I'm pretty sure its the kids making him unhappy. He is very tolerant of them, but it's not fair to him.
Brought him in yesterday, it was horrible. I cried all the way there and during the paperwork, this made the 4year old cry...... I felt so crappy. Today he's sitting in kitty jail wondering what the heck just happened. We've had him since he was 6 weeks.
Wow I feel worse again. I should hit the liqour store.....

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
