The Visitor

Last night, I was miserable. The bed was cold. I was cold. My back was aching. A slow thinker at times, after awhile I realized I could plug in the waterbed heater and take the chill off, at least. I didn’t expect it to do any good right away but it did. It wasn’t long until I could relax and go to sleep.

I felt better when I got up but was in for a surprise when I went into the kitchen. I saw this over the sink.


I’ve looked and looked online but this is the only one I could find that was similar. I might find it if I could see it from the upper side but the kitchen window is so high off the ground, there is no way. It’s still there tonight and it isn’t telling me what it is or where it came from.

Breakfast yesterday was two nectarines and a piece of dry toast. I did better today.


I called the Apple House about peaches (!) and was told they are picking because so many people wanted them but the fruit is still quite green. I was advised to wait a few more days if I wanted riper ones. I’ve bought green ones there and let them ripen over time but nothing is better than a tree-ripened peach. I’ll wait.

The Redneck A/C was fired up today and it needs more containers of ice. It’s also very loud—probably because the cooler is metal. I have two more gallons of water in the freezer and I figure they will have overflowed their tops like one of the first ones did. At least it didn’t get the stuff underneath wet, The water froze on the outside of the jug.

Twinkle has been fed. I cleaned out The Bubbler and refilled it. She can be entertained for hours just sitting and watching it.

This is about it for today. My exercise was walking to the mailbox and back. My reward was the Shopper and the Bi-Lo ad. Woohoo.

    I am glad you got out of bed today. People who can’t, hurt more than ALL rest of us. A blessing to count. Count your blessings one by one to see what God has done!!!

    Your visitor may be an Emperial moth; it appears to match the 4th picture down at this site:

      That’s it, Genese! Thank you!! It says the adults don’t feed so I shouldn’t be surprised it’s still on the screen. It will be interesting to see how long it stays.
