Wow, is it ever hot and humid outside this week! And I know that we truly have nothing to complain about, compared to some of you folks in the Midwest. There is a REASON that I left Missouri, and while I won't claim that it was all because of the summertime humidity, it is definitely not something that I've shed tears about leaving behind me.
So we've just been hanging around and doing our best to stay cool.
Mind you, that's Argos in front of THAT fan, with another in the window, and the ceiling fan going at the same time. That part of the house is not air-conditioned, but with all of the cross-breezes and the shade from the front porch, is not at all unpleasant.
Patches (and Mitchell, not pictured) were allowed to roam the entire upstairs of the house today while Jeff was working from home. After patrolling the perimeter for awhile, Patches crashed HARD on our cat ledge in the study. Right under the shade tree, and where cool air from the small window unit could blow on his fur. No dummy, is he.
Annie decided to relax on the forbidden chair. Doesn't she look relaxed? And no, it is NOT me or Jeff that forbid the cats to get on any of the comfy furniture. It's Charlotte that does the forbidding... that is HER throne. Except that Annie has been challenging her for it a bit lately, and sometimes Charlotte just lets it go.
Bit, ever daddy's little girl, has decided to pursue a career in tech. Just what that career would involve, I don't even dare to speculate about.
Charlotte has been spending a lot of time in the bathroom, with her belly on display. She normally only does this in the summer, so I can only guess that it helps her cool off.
Anyway, I hope that you enjoyed our photos. I'm going to have a fun announcement to make soon, but I'm going to have to wait for at least two more days, maybe one more.
