Wow, I've never experienced wind like this. We kept the back door open for the kitties today, and before I knew it, there was dust everywhere. And then the power went out for about an hour, so we started getting ready for bed using flashlights. The cats were wondering what the heck we were doing walking around with flashlights. I looked outside our kitchen window and both my bird feeders are gone, and I keep hearing beer cans rattling outside. I wonder where those came from. I wonder what the damage will be like tomorrow when the winds die down.

Books on Tape (or CD)

I didn't realize how much books on CD help with long commutes. The past two weeks have been really pleasant with two audio books that I borrowed. I found myself being less bothered by other drivers, and I came home feeling less stressed. I was also driving better too! I need to get more books on CD, though the only detriment is the price. Anthony found a site where he can rent these audio CDs... maybe I can convince him to loan it to me after he's done before he has to return it.

CJ has lost his meow

I didn't know that cats could get laryngitis, but CJ is living proof. Poor CJ can't meow... well, he attempts to meow but no sound would come out. He managed a few terrified squeeks when we brought him in to the vet, but still no voice. I think it's been about a week. The vet thinks it's viral, but also gave him some antibiotics. I guess only time will tell if CJ will find his voice again. I hope he does. I miss his meows.
