I've done nothing in the last 24 hours but clean the house and get myself organized. It always takes at least a day to recover from the chaos of traveling -- to unpack and do the laundry and pick up the cleaning and go grocery shopping. (Although, truth be told, Dave did the shopping. I just made room in the fridge by discarding some now-inedible leftovers from before my trip, as well as some creme fraiche that had become a biology experiment.)
Olga cut her paw on one of her walks in my absence (did I mention that already?) and left little blood spatters all over our floors. Dave cleaned it up -- he said when he got home on the day it happened, the house looked like an episode of "Law & Order" -- but I was still seeing blood yesterday so I gave everything another mopping. I think we're blood-free now, but I suppose if the cops showed up with one of those ultraviolet crime-scene devices things might still look pretty scary.
Anyway, because I barely went out yesterday, I don't have any pictures yet -- so here's a photo of some autumnal "heirloom pumpkins" on display at a Publix back in Florida. I would have called them gourds, but maybe they're edible.
Here's the original, pre-Waterlogue shot. They are pretty, aren't they? I love that big orange warty one.
I felt awful yesterday, with jet lag and all that, but hopefully I'll be back on schedule fairly quickly. I always get so cold when I don't get any sleep -- it's like my body can't regulate its own temperature. I took a quick nap after lunch, which I usually try not to do, but that helped and thank goodness it didn't inhibit my ability to sleep last night. I feel fine this morning. Onward!
