We waited too long to get Casey fixed apparently. She was crying up a storm last night and actually attracted some neighbourhood cats to our front steps. We are obviously going to have to take her to the vet... Other than the visitors she hasn't been too annoying. I am not even sure she was calling out to the cats; she was attacking June bugs through the window screens last time I was paying attention to her. They were out in full-force and she was captivated. I don't even really notice them unless I am outside typically, but Casey tends to change things. The guy went outside for something and killed 11. They were everywhere! They are also early.

Moving on, remember my very nice picture the other day of my coffee maker for 'A Smell I Love'?
I don't have it any more. The stupid glass pot fell out of the drying rack the other night and shattered. I tell you, things are made so horrible these days! It was like 9:30 at night, so we went to see if we could find a replacement. The glass pots wouldn't work in our maker and we couldn't find a replacement maker, either. So, we lucked into this coffee maker incorrectly priced:
The plus part of it was that it does not have a glass pot. As our current maker was only about 2 months old because I broke the pot out of our other one; I was pretty ticked off with them. This one is actually pretty cool. You can make a pot of coffee like pictured above, or you can use travel mugs. With the travel mugs you can use 1 or 2 at a time. I was going to take a picture with the travel mugs, but the guy has gone travelling with one of them. I am sure this is very boring, but it is a new toy and I think it is cool...
I am having lots of fun with my postcard project. It turns out all this time I was missing Missouri, so I will have to recount how many I actually have. I received these this week:
|Nebraska from Danielle|
|Rhode Island from Care|
|Kansas from Melissa|

I continue to take a picture every day. I am having a lot of fun with it all! You can see the pictures from this past week here.
I read The Long Earth which can count for the Terry Pratchett Challenge and I am going to say Once Upon a Time. Dark Frost also counts for Once Upon a Time. And, The Unseen counts for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.
I finally read a Terry Pratchett book this year. Yay!! It was really good, too. This will be a buddy review with Nymeth in the future. (e-book/review copy)
