As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, our daughter Dee is staying with us until she must return to her office. (No official date on that yet.) Having her here has been like a tonic for Clif and me, a real pick-me-up during this time of Covid.
This week, Dee is on vacation, and we have a week planned with simple pleasures, including a trip to the ocean, friends coming over for drinks and appetizers, and Thai take-out.
On Saturday, to kick-off Dee’s vacation, we had drinks on the patio
along with Clif’s legendary grilled bread.
Little Miss Watson joined us for drinks,
as did Chip. (Or was this Dale? We have a hard time telling them apart.)
We also had this jumper come to the table.
A note about Little Miss: She is an old cat whose instinct for hunting is weak. Basically, she is an indoor cat and usually only goes out with us and then comes back in when we do. The chipmunks do not fear Little Miss, and they run around freely when she is out. Little Miss watches the chipmunks as they scamper, and I get the impression that she doesn’t think it’s worth her while to chase them.
Anyway…as we are on vacation with Dee, posts will be short and filled with pictures. Next Monday, I’ll return to sharing posts from blogging friends.
