the weather was a wee bit wet
misty and sprinkling
not wet enough to wear a hood or put up an umbrella...
fear not you won't get damp.
street tiles are disappearing
some quicker than others!
arts and crafts bungalows are frequent in our neighbourhood
gardeners are passionate around here
and the gardens are a feast for the eyes
granite pillars and stonework
lovely flowers line the streets
some homes are larger
some have been made into suites and condos
the evening was quiet
I only met a handful of walkers and most had their dogs on a leash
this poppy stopped me in my tracks...
pretty and pink.
The Humble Bungalow is softly quiet
life is ticking along in time with the tick tock of the clock
night is drawing nigh and the street lights are aglow...
it's time to crawl under the warm duvet
settle in for some luxurious slumber
tomorrow is another day...
and Chester is an early riser
5:30 - 6:00
I found out that Chester is from sunny California...
he and his mom and his 7 or 8 siblings along with another mom and her large litter were
rescued from 30 degree temperatures
near a freeway
close to a cat shelter
they have hopped over the border and are looking for homes.
I am so happy that Chester has landed on his feet
so close to mine...
Chester drinks from the tap like Pepper does!
Don't get me started about not being responsible pet owners...
SPAY and NEUTER your animals.
Just in case you are wondering how the transition is going...
they were face to face tonight
a low growl from Pepper
a submissive hunker down from Chester.
They have their own spaces...
they are sneaking around.
Pepper has eaten most of Chester's dry food
Chester has tried to eat Pepper's food but the kibble is far too big!
Pepper has eaten gobs of Chester's wet food
They are co- mingle ing
all looks good so far....
if I get more than 6 hours sleep tonight I will consider myself lucky!
(as I type...Chester is on my lap and Pepper is a stones throw away)
wish me luck
I am very tired.....
I am seriously close to calling in sick...
