I'm rather pleased that though I have owlish tendencies, if I get my 7 to 8 hours of sleep, I can get up early and still be reasonably functional as I've been getting up early since Tuesday. On our way to PAAWS, CM and I picked up 5 cats to be spayed from the local Humane Society now called Homestead. When we got to PAAWS, shortly before 8, there were already several people already waiting with their cats. Fortunately Dr G also arrived on time and we quickly began operating on the cats, some of whom were still cute teenage kittens (don't worry - Dr G did the operating and I was there just to get him anything he needed). After a while the vet tech arrived and then the other vet so when the last cat was done, 19 in all, I finally looked at the clock and it was only 11 am. Of course we had to wait for them to recover, clean up, do a fair amount of paperwork and wait for their owners to arrive so CM and I didn't leave until 4:45.
On the first Wednesday of every month CM has a dinner date with her daughter so while they went to a Vietnamese restaurant, the Prof and I ate my favorite dinner, the Asparagus and Artichoke Pasta Salad Recipe
that he had made while we were working. Yesterday I brought some to eat for lunch and it was still delicious - he made enough so I'll be eating it for several days to come - yippee!!
For dinner we went to the Pig Out, a Democratic fund raiser, where I had my first pulled pork; in addition I ate some smoked turkey, baked beans, cole slaw and fruit salad and it was all delicious. We left early before the speeches as CM and the Prof claim they have "speech aversion" but it doesn't matter as we all will vote Democratic in November.
Today we did some grocery shopping and basically relaxed. Tomorrow we plan to go to Lake Itasca in Minnesota where the mighty Mississippi begins. I haven't been there in several years and am looking forward to the trip.
