I was running some errands this morning, and walked to where we parked our car. On my way there, I found the lost kitten from last night. He was in the road, and didn’t make it.
As we were driving around tonight looking for a parking spot, Liz put her hand on my shoulder and said “What is that?”. There was a small shape in the road ahead, and at first I thought it might be a rat. But we both quickly realized it was a really small kitten.
We had a blast, watching kids step up and try to “win” their candy. I think the most memorable moments for us were when the kids tried to unsuccessfully play the game (we had several kids just throw the pucks at the board, head-on).
Went outside today, and was delighted to see this fun bit of Halloween decoration up already. We’ve got some new neighbors in the building next door, and I’m fairly certain this was by them.
We opted to take some days off this week, with the express purpose of… well, of not doing anything at all. No housework, no errands, just anything that gave us a bit of calm and relaxation. Because for both of us, we’ve felt a little stretched.
Today, we just ambled around the neighborhood. And that kind of pace was just right for us.
Today Liz and I decided to have another slow day, where we ambled around our neighborhood a bit more. Despite our working from home since the Pandemic started, we’ve really not been “out and about” in our neighborhood very much. Lately, we’ve wanted to change that.
Much later in the evening, Liz described today as “a slow day.” And I think that’s pretty spot on. We didn’t rush anywhere, we didn’t need to worry about work. We just casually went about things at our own place.
Each time that shuttle bus would come by, it would likely hit this dangling branch… increasing the chance that it’d come down (either on the shuttle, or on some of the parked cars nearby).
When I started to follow him, he paused and looked back. Almost as if chiding me for not keeping up.
Now, I’m no veteran. I’ve had zero military experience. But I understand enough about helicopters to know that they’re loud. That even far away, far up in the sky… helicopters are loud.
This thing… was not.
On our way, we spotted this broken parking meter – splayed out on the sidewalk. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but something serious and big must have caused that bend, at its base.
As I was checking my phone, Liz kept busy picking up here and there. Her comment was “I guess I’m going to die organizing.”
After work today, Liz and I went for a short walk. There had been rain, we had a little time to kill before needing to make dinner for the bunnies… and we’re altogether way too sedentary. So walk it was.
