The king size comforter sat in the large bath tub long enough that one of the cats "did his business" on it. It's been taken to a nearby cleaner for a $40+ cleaning. Next year -- if we use it -- it will be cared for more promptly. But what a hassle. My grandmother also had a feather duvet with a simple cover. *THAT* is a practical item. I might look for a heavier duty cover for it and skip using this maroon/burgundy satin thing altogether.
Slugger, of Slugger & Louise, our cardinals, is showing around his fledgling son. I do hope he doesn't teach Junior to attack his reflection while sitting on the car & truck side view mirrors.
My laptop is unexpectedly shutting down once again. I count myself incredibly lucky that i got a decent backup yesterday. Now it's just the hassle of getting to the apple store. I've turned that into a visit with my sister plus a dog outing. Yay.
List of things i want to research that aren't my job:
- Plant IDs
- Tree that i've thought of as a "cherry" that probably isn't in the rose family, now that i've seen the inflorescence.
- a DYC Dad has observed spreading in his pasture. It looks pretty much like a hawkweed, but a single dandelion-like blossom.
- a borage family flower growing under the dead tree of heaven
- a composite growing in the glade with white aster-like flowers
- Did early Quakers write of grace?
- What concept of grace was around in England pre Cromwell?
