Can You Say 'Cabin Fever?'

Sure. I knew you could.

This post started out with an innocent comment to Dianna, "So, I wonder what everyone is doing today?"

Which drew a glance that could have... well, suffice it to say, probably wasn't her most "Hi, how you doin' love?", kind of look, if you know what I mean.

Even the dogs and the cats are feeling the stress. During a break in the rain yesterday afternoon, Dianna and I went for a stroll down to see how the new construction is faring. Along with us came all six of the crew. Three kitties and three doggies.

All of us glad to have a break from the incessant rain. All three cats made sure to check out the new kitty door that is in progress of being installed. I got a picture of Nelson inspecting it, but on inspection, as with most digital cameras, it was a second too slow. All I got was a paw visible in the doorway.

We strolled back to the house, and none too soon either. The rain started up again, just as we were ascending the stairs.

So, again, I'm unable to put a caption with this photo. Oh, I could if I went in and edited the HTML, but I've forgotten too much of that stuff to be quick about it. Suffice to say, I must have taken a panorama shot with the camera. I don't know how that happened. Turned out interesting looking. My first thought was that somehow, I slipped in a photo of the Arecibo Telescope. But, no. It's just the plain concrete floor of the pool house addition.

Back to the topic at hand. What was it again? Oh, yes, cabin fever. Well, I'm sitting here in the living room, writing the blog., Deeohgee is huddled under the table beside me quivering from the thunder, Carson is doing his thing, and putting fear into Secret. She doesn't like his random approach to his business, and I'm just guessing here, but I think that Chanel is in bed with Dianna who is either reading or napping, Bela is under the bed napping till Carson chases her out, and Nelson must be in the overhead napping. Oh, yes. Almost forgot April. She's in the closet again, also napping.

I need to go outside briefly, to take some laundry downstairs and get that started, and to take some garbage out to the bin. From the sounds of things, both are going to wait.

Just a guess here, but I imagine most everyone in the neighborhood is having about as exciting a day as we're having. Wunderground is calling for 'moderate rain.' Whatever that is.

Yes, it's an exciting life we lead down here in paradise. Dianna told me a bit ago that we were virtually surrounded by water. I just went outside and looked myself. Yup. We are. There's even an egret standing in the water next to our property - nowhere near the canal. Hmmm. What does he know? I tried taking a photo through the screen of the porch, but the camera focuses on the screen and makes a mess of the egret, so you'll just have to use your imagination.

That's it for this edition. Enjoy.
