marcicat: (cats at sunrise)

I’m not sure why, exactly, but this month’s weather is hitting all my summer nostalgia buttons. It’s kind of weird and fun all at the same time; I’m not quite sure what to make of it.

After a few cool and gray days at the end of last week (not unwelcome!), we’re back to sun and summer temps. AND it’s National Ice Cream Day!

When I take pictures it’s basically the same stuff over and over again. A tree! A neat rock! A dozen virtually identical pictures of a pond!

But it’s fun, and we don’t have to pay for rolls of film anymore, which is amazing, and I saw FOUR cute doggos while I was out walking today, so I’m calling it a win.

Happy July!

Here’s this month’s door art:

[This one is two pieces of scrapbooking paper as the background, two strips of border from a 2016 calendar (artwork by Adam Guan), and then another 2016 calendar picture (photograph by Kent Mason)]

Question of the day: why sleep on just one blanket when you could sleep on a whole pile of blankets?

I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again: thank goodness for laundry, the chore that does itself while I browse tumblr and take a nap.

The best kind of caturday — when there are still TWO MORE weekend days to come!

DAY 1 PLAN: SLEEP IN: ACHIEVED

Explored some nearby walking trails this weekend! SO MANY MOSQUITOES. SO MANY. I used two kinds of bug repellent and wore long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, which helped a lot. (As in, still tons of bugs, but it didn’t feel like I was constantly under siege.)

And every so often I’d hit a part of the trail where there was a breeze, and birds singing, and sun on the trees, and it was just — amazing.

The boulder was a bit disappointing, but I did get to walk on a trail called “The Driftway” to see it. And I did not get lost! (Well. I did not get lost more than once. Which is good for me!)

I guess we still need rain, but if we could just get an hour of sun each morning? So the cat could properly bask? That would be really great.

The google doodle today is super cute, and includes a cat, a fox, and a frog! It’s all my weaknesses in one place!

I’ve been trying my hand at writing some fic for the new Power Rangers movie, but it has been slow going. Work is All About The Drama right now, and it’s hard to avoid Even More Drama when writing about high schoolers.

So I’ve been reading a lot of Guardians of the Galaxy fic, which — is not actually helping. (But I never really got into the fic when that movie came out, so there’s a lot of stuff I haven’t read yet.)

Mostly this entire post was just an excuse to show off the flamingoat again:

(How did we get to the flamingoat? Drama –> “So The Drama” –> Kim Possible –> “A flamingoat? But that’s the rarest of the Cuddle Buddys!” Technically, the flamingoat is from “A Sitch in Time,” which I recommend as an enjoyable viewing experience!)

This weekend I was walking in my local state park, as one does, and I happened along a sign. (Usually a good indication I’m on a Real Trail, aka Not Lost, and so a cause for celebration.) It looked like this:

Things I would expect to see on a sign warning me to watch out for stuff:

1. snowmobile

2. ATV

3. snowmobile

Not — whatever that is. I have no idea what that picture is even meant to depict. A plow on tank treads? Anyway, I didn’t see anything like that, but I was *definitely* watching for it!

Me: [checks how many posts I’ve done this week that were just a picture] Only one? Perfect.

Work is so weird right now, IDEK.

[Note: I took this picture *before* the big snowstorm we had last week — right now it would be a little more of a trek to get there. But it was definitely from March!]

Happy Spring Equinox!
