Good evening, MMC!
I have been catching up on the Countdown as I go about working around the house - making room for stock and getting the mini heater cleaned for use. Spent more time looking for a Phillips screwdriver than cleaning - funny how there is never one around when needed!
Palmer is terrified of my new, extremely noisy, steam spewing coffeepot - I may have to switch permanently to tea. She spent over two and half hours hiding under the bed and another two hours running at the slightest noise. Thankfully she is now snoozing on her box under my desk chair. Poor cat! She was so happy to see me when I got home last night. I didn't stay up late as I had a migraine. Cleaned up a few things and put some groceries away and then I crashed at around 9 last night. She wanted to play so bad. At least today I found the mother lode of jingle balls - 10 of them, most of which were behind the chair, again. Her favorite spot to stash them.
I have several store-related tasks I need to finish tonight so I will bid all of you a good night!
