Up at 5 am. Stuffed nose, felt like something stuck in my throat. Put on a robe & slippers and dentures, Hgl was 176. made some mint tea and watched two episodes of Hot Bench.

Back to bed, Spook was still there. Really nice to be able to pet her while I fall back asleep.

Up for reals around 9.

Put food out for the strays

Put a can of 9 Lives out for my cats, who were not thrilled with it. I may have to buy more Sheba.

Three deliveries: Big refill jugs of antibiotic hand soap, 8 oz no-drip hummingbird feeders, litterbox cartridges.

Changed the litterbox

Filled the feeders with 4:1 water:sugar with a few drops of non-toxic red food coloring and 3 drops of hummingbird vitamins.

Refilled the kitchen soap dispenser

Hung the feeders outside

Watched a lot of streamers, both political and not. Watched some MSNBC.

Lots of clouds but no chance of rain. High barometric pressure, low humidity

Called electrician, got a $50 refund. They had quoted me $150 plus the price of the sconce (which was $20 on Home Depot). Manager claimed it should have been $275. No way would I have agreed to that for a simple job.

Online, Cox, removed the "variety pak" which turned out to be a waste. $12/month lower cost

Called Animal Control, they will send someone with a raccoon trap and instructions tomorrow.

Two raccoons caught on video at about 10:30 pm. Stray cats came out from under the house in the late morning.

Plans for tomorrow:
Take it easy
Wait for Animal Control
