Furry Alarm Clock

Spook came in at 6 am to yell at me, walk across the bed and yell some more. She did this three times, but I stayed in bed till 11, reading and watching videos. Because I can.

Gardening - planted hollyhock seeds, sprinkled 1/4" of gardening soil on them & watered. Dug up the dead creeping thyme, planted two each lantana and lavender in that space. Watered that too.

Loaded the car with 2 large and 2 small patio chairs, the little side table, the two automatic litter boxes and drove to the dump for the free residential dumping event. Long line, good signage & traffic control, except for the place where the stuff was actually dumped. That was kind of chaotic. Done in 3 minutes.

Home again, loaded the car with the too-big porch umbrella, the two "can't get out of them" canvas chairs, three radios, two shirts and the old French Horn I bought on eBay months ago but only played once. Donated those to Goodwill

Manicure near home.

Met Janice at Starbucks, halfway through my iced mocha I had a coughing fit, which went on for 10 minutes, but subsided when she gave me a couple of her allergy pills. OTC. Chlor-Trimeton (Chlorpheniramine Maleate). That and some water did the trick. I think it was something in my mocha, because I don't usually have airborne allergies. Or it could have been a delayed reaction from the dump.

Lowe's, bought replacement furniture for the porch - two plastic rocking chairs, a side table (assembly required) and a beach umbrella. The chairs were too big to close the hatchback, but I had bungee cords to strap them in and hold the hatch down. The Prius beeped at me all the way home.

Populated the porch, made dinner (Chef Chu Mongolian beef), watched an episode each of Elementary and Shark Tank.
Refilled the hummer feeder, watered the indoor plants.

Plans for tomorrow:
11 am - 2 pm photo shoot. Will check out the 24-70 mm and 85mm lenses
Assemble the porch side table
Make some corrections in my Iolanthe score which I totally didn't do today. Also study the words. Music director's major clueless point is the words need to come first, then the music, and no amount of studying music will cement the words in my brain.
