~ Maggie ~ Clouds ~ Football ~ Squirrels

Good 39ยบ morning. Foggy and damp out there.....

After I took Maggs to the vet's yesterday morning, wrote my blog, I cleaned out cupboards in my bathroom. Threw out two trash bags full of stuff and have a stack of towels (nice Martex, but tired of them) and king size sheets and pillowcases for Goodwill. Yeah, room in the cupboards now!

About 3:30 I went to pick up Maggie. She was such a happy camper to see me! I was not a happy camper to see the bill.....  $456.00 !!!  The "day's stay' was $33, the hormone panel (blood tests) $315, and the overnight shipping to Tennessee was $106! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..................... Now let's hope I get some answers!

Interesting cloud patterns yesterday morning, but then it just turned gloomy and sprinkled....

Dinner was reruns of fish stew. Tonight I'm going to coat with a breading and fry the other lobster raviolis.

 I'll make some sort of lemony dipping sauce
and probably cook some veggies.
