Monday Morning Rota

Posted on

1Snookums rose before me today so the coffee pot was ready in the kitchen, and she was in the studio entertaining da budgie. It was a long, sleepy slog to the pot, but I made it. Then on down the hall to the studio carefully balancing the cup so that it didn’t spill on the new carpet, and plop down in my $49 Office Depot executive chair. I think I bought it in 1987 or so, and the armrests are shredded, and need to be covered with old towels to keep from pinching the skin. But it fits my bottom.

Twice a year I dig out the hex keys and tighten everything up. If I forget it, I am rewarded with the chair back coming loose and dumping me on my head. I just noticed it is getting rickety, so it is tightening time again in Texas.

And da Budgies favorite playlist, Celtic banjo, is on the google puck. The windows are still wet from the rains and dew, but I think they are over, now. Soz, I will air up the tires on the mower this week and get to mowing. I need to find someone to come by and fix the leaking tires. One more chore that has passed beyond my ability in my inexorable march to decrepitency.

But none of that before coffee.

Good morning!

    Is that your pooch? So sweet… I just love old dogs. Everyone wants puppies, but not me. Give me a grateful, quiet old boy any day.

      That one is a stock photo that I kinda saw myself in … but I tend to keep dogs around for a long time and support Gray Mutts, a sanctuary for old dogs …

        Every dog we’ve ever adopted has been an older one no one else wanted. And they have all been dearly loved…..

    I really don’t want to think about that chair dumping you out on to the floor. I had that happen once and I am glad no one was around to laugh at me :-). I have an old office chair and just yesterday I covered the arms with duct tape because they were flaking and I was having to sweep up chair flakes every time I turned around lol. Have a nice day dear one.

    *saunters in, plops down, falls asleep from jet lag*

      *closes blinds, throws light coverlet over sleeping guest, and tucks in my best napping pooch for comfort. Sweet dreams.

        *sighs contentedly, snuggles in deeper, and begins to snore gently and ladylike*

        Yes, we do insist that all feminine snores be ladylike. Oddly, though, only the ladies in this family seem to rattle the shingles when they snore …
