Random Musings – October 26, 2017Woman in the Middle | October 27, 2017
I have some weird allergy or food sensitivity problem that makes my lips swell overnight. This happened for some reason Monday night and ever since I have looked, my daughters assure me, like I got lip injections. The problem is I already have full lips, so it isn’t like my “injections” make me look better. I just look like one of those crazy people who go overboard with the plastic surgery. It is also uncomfortable. I can not imagine why anyone, however thin their lips, would want to do this to themselves on purpose.
Speaking of Monday night, Nox, or black cat and the smallest of our rather plus size heard of cats, discovered a new trick in the middle of the night. He flung himself at our closed bedroom door, snagged our door handle with his paws, and unlatched the door. FYI, this was not a quiet exercise. Hubby and I just laid there wide awake for a moment, to try and figure out (yet AGAIN) what the heck just happened, when we felt the gentle tell tale thump of a cat jumping on our bed. Just what we needed at 3:40 am! Eldest Daughter keeps her door open all night to allow for the free flow of cats. I guess that just was not good enough for Nox!
Yet again, speaking of Monday night, we have been getting our punishment for the week’s worth of cool weather we had at the beginning of October. It has been pure misery! The other weird thing that happened that night was, just after Nox jumped on our bed, the AC came on. It was set at 78 degrees, and yet it came on at 3:41 am. Our house is well insulated and sits at a diagonal to the rising and setting sun, which helps it stay cool in the summer. We usually turn down the AC one degree just at bedtime, and that keeps us and the house cool until morning. But not Monday night! With a hot Santa Ana wind blowing, it stayed hot all night.
Dax has been a bit under the weather. Poor guy seems to have a small cold. To be honest, we would have never noticed it because he is acting pretty normally and only has the occasional quiet sneeze. But his third eyelid came out and is still out after several days. I bite my nails everyday about whether to take him to the vet or not. But so far he is doing well, eating, playing, etc… If only that eyelid would go back where it belongs, then we would know we could stop worrying!
