And now we go in reverse.
I am lazy, at least for today. It was beautiful. What a pleasant fall we are rolling into. The outside kittens are happy and playful, Tammy got a well need brushing (Murph did too, though he didn’t really need it — he loved the attention). I cleaned up Tammy-fur before Dora came back in to avoid the disturbing spectacle of Dora trying to eat Tammy-fur. It’s weird having to deal with two so diametrically opposite pups, i.e. one wants to kill the other.
While I was eating lunch today, the local PBS had reruns of Julia Child’s cooking shows on. I vaguely remember seeing some of them. It was amazing to see her give such detailed advice on buying a roasting hen and how 5 people could serve 300 people omelets in 20 minutes. (That last one made me wish I had gone out to the farmers market this morning and gotten some eggs. I’ve been doing it wrong for years YEARS I tell you.)
It also reminded me that I haven’t gone to see the movie Julie & Julia. Perhaps I haven’t missed my opportunity yet! (I just checked the listings.)
I decided to test the theory that dogs understand finger pointing — I heard it on some program on NPR or PBS, I can’t remember. Dora hadn’t eaten dinner this evening, but wanted a chewie. I pointed to her food bowl. She tried to follow, but Cisco and Caroline got in on it and distracted her for a short time. She eventually got it and ate her dinner. It could just be that she was hungry and gave up on me.
