mom’s birthday present for her Clematis.
So I’ve been noticing there are a lot more flies in here than usual. On any given day, you’d be surprised to even find one… hold that thought.
I didn’t sleep barely at all last night. I think I didn’t fall asleep until around 4am and woke up before my alarm clock that was set for 7:15am. Very happy about today bc I got to see my friend Nicole again so soon! My Grams was going to town to get her hair done, and my mom has some x-rays she was going for. So I asked if they would drop me off to finally visit Nicole at her and her boyfriend Adam’s place. I’ve seen tons of videos and pictures, so it was awesome to actually SEE it in person.
Zeus nice and stoned on catnip from aunty Nicole
I got to see my darling Jenna (their dog) who is just kick ass!!! We walked around her beautiful gardens with the most unique flowers. I also got to see her trellis’ that her and her dad made together for her clematis and all the neat veggies she was growing. I just love it there! And it was really windy which saved the heat even though I was sweating buckets. I got to meet their handsome boy cats Loki and Buster and the gorgeous Skadi, their black cat… which of course I love bc my Bizkit was black ❤ I figured first time being around me, and with me not being there very long they’d kinda rather just check me out and see what I was about, but all three of them were cuddle bugs with me, so of course I was contemplating ways to fit them all in my purse and make some excuse to Zeus why they were coming home with me!
spinach lasagne from earlier in the week mmm
I had such a nice time just relaxing and getting to check everything out. I wanted to do something special for her, bc she’s been battling with anxiety problems and has been kicking its ass lately, and getting to enjoy life. Plus she’s a friend who ALWAYS does little things for you all the time. I had been talking to her about her aquarium the other day and some fish she wanted, so I had mom and Grams stop at a pet store in Belleville before we left. They only had the one kind of fish she liked there, so I got her two of those instead. Get to her house… she has my favourite chocolate waiting for me, the air conditioner installed so it would be cool, had spent the whole day before with Adam cleaning, and gave me a mystery plant that is nicely watered and sitting on my back deck. Plus she is lending me a book she loves, and GAVE my sister their one microwave! Seriously!! She’s an awesome, unnecessarily giving person with a heart of gold. Plus she has a weird kooky mind like me, so she’s wikid. Oh yeah. Lol, she even gave me some catnip that she had growing outside to bring home to Zeus!
My mom and Grams came to get me after they went shopping for a bit, and then mom came in for a second to meet Nicole and Adam. Seriously think she wanted to meet Jenna the most though lol. By the way, my mom says your house is gorgeous and thinks Jenna was very cute and well behaved. My mom’s a sucker for pets like us lol.

So I get Subway on the way home so I don’t have to cook dinner, come in the house, and go to open the windows… there were literally over 20 or more flies sitting there in the window! EW!! So I swished a bunch out when I opened the screen up, and then whacked a bunch with the fly swatter out of spite, and let about 8 more out through the screened door. So I’m convinced I have food or something that’s slipped in between the stove and the counter, I pull out my stove and SMASH I break a cute sugar strawberry shaped sugar container I just sit on my stove as decoration that my sis gave me. So I get that all cleaned up, and surprisingly there is nothing around or behind the stove but cat hair. So why???? My windows are brand new, but the screen aren’t, and I think the people that were here before, must have had cats that went at the screens bc there’s little picky holes in them. But this is my third summer here and I’ve never had more than one fly in here, and even that’s rare. Is it this crazy 40 degrees with humidity weather? My recycling is outside now, there’s no food laying around or anything spilt. I know this bc I scrubbed the kitchen down last week so there is literally nothing there that should be making them obsessed with wanting to get in… and HOW are they getting in???
I get disgusted and decide to go out and water the back side of the house’ gardens since the sun is done on that side for the day, and the damn hose won’t work! The landlord has installed this nice turning hose wheel thing, but the water was leaking out from under it. I’m ripping the hose off it to get a better look, swearing like the landlord does when I hear someone laughing… my landlord. So thankfully Enzo, the guy upstairs who has been working for the landlord redoing everything outside here, came over and helped me figure it out…. he chose nicer words than I did when he got frustrated. He figured it out, and tightened it all up good and then I got to water.
Now I am on the search to find my proper camera battery.
Did I mention I went to Lowes last week and found a 110 volt dryer, and washer there? I saved myself with a delivery charge, almost $2-300 !! That guy at Smitty‘s who treated me like crap bc I am on disability can kiss my ass!
Also, my Grams leaves this Tuesday to go to Ireland with my aunt Kelly! My Gramps, who passed away about a year and a half ago, was from Ireland, and asked my aunt Kelly, that if she ever went to Ireland again, to bring some of his ashes home to be burried too. I think that’s really cool. They’re going to have a wonderful time with family there. I wish I could afford to go!
Okay enough of this. Battery card searching, then I’m going to attempt to fix my stupid cursed vacuum!
Have a great weekend everyone! Don’t melt away on me!
