I live in a small town in southern Wisconsin (population around 1600). I love animals, especially cats and dogs. I like gardening (both vegetables and flowers) and I like to read. I work in the garden center at a Walmart in Madison, WI. In the off season, I work in back-to-school, Halloween, Christmas, etc. AKA - "Seasonal". But garden season is by far my favorite.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the parade shooting near Chicago on July 4. Six people killed. I heard 30 or 40 injured. What is the world coming to when you can’t even feel safe going to watch a parade? They have arrested a “person of interest.”

    Bummer! We had rain for the 4th, so the fireworks were postponed until July 23. I’m going to be working that night, so I have to miss them. Unless I sneak out of work early….Hmmm, there’s a thought! I still have enough paid time off to get away with it. I probably won’t do that, though. Just a thought.

    I’m worried about what happened to my garage kitties. Because I am on vacation all week, I had planned on trying to borrow a live trap from someone who lives here in town so I could try to trap them. I would be free then to check the trap often so nobody would be stuck in there for too long. But I have not seen or heard hide nor hair of any of them for 5 days now. The food was getting eaten some, but not a lot. That could be from a neighbor cat or even from the possum I sometimes see in my garage. I hope nothing bad has happened to the kitties. I already have 11 cats and I really did not need to add 4 more (I’m pretty sure there were 3 kittens), but I was willing to take them all in anyway. I already named mom cat Annie and I was going to call the black one Panther. I didn’t have a name yet for the other 2 kittens.

    Today is:

    NATIONAL WORKAHOLICS DAY. I’m on vacation. I have no intention of being a workaholic today (or all week). I’ll put in some time in my garden, but I’ll be sure not to work too hard.

    NATIONAL HAWAII DAY

    NATIONAL BIKINI DAY

    NATIONAL GRAHAM CRACKER DAY. A day for Ten Cats readers! Okay, I know they’re talking about the kind of graham crackers that you eat, but we have declared ourselves to be Graham Crackers, so it is our day.

    NATIONAL APPLE TURNOVER DAY. I already have peaches to eat, plus strawberries and oranges. And I even baked a chocolate cake. I just don’t think I have room for apple turnovers right now, as much as I love them.

    NATIONAL BARBECUED SPARERIBS DAY. I was planning a cookout (not spareribs, though) but the weather forecast calls for rain much of the day. We do need rain, but I wish it would wait until after dark and after the fireworks! Due to the forecast, our fireworks have been postponed until July 23. I have no idea how they picked that date. I have to work that night.

    NATIONAL FRIED CLAM DAY

    STAY OUT OF THE SUN DAY. I can’t I’ll be working outside all day, reducing the price on plants.

    Best of all, it’s my last day at work before my vacation. I will be off for 8 days. I plan on doing some gardening and maybe finish painting my house. But mostly, I plan on spending a whole lot of time doing my favorite thing…ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! Relaxing and reading and going for walks. I’m ready!!!
