Did not go to Hospital yesterday. Back bothered me, tired, variations on that theme. So I did not go to Hosptial. By afternoon, felt a bit better and so drove Herself about for errands. Our land tax Certificate of Deposit is purchased, something we've done for nearly 10 years now when we receive our income tax refund. This provides a small amount of interest earning and a great amount of peace of mind, knowing that the money to pay this year's property taxes is safely tucked away where going after for some other reason will invoke a penalty. The CD matures just before the taxes are due. If we've enough in savings at the time (has happened a couple times) not allocated for other projects, we'll let the CD roll over. Otherwise, Property Taxes! Yeah.

Then off to Home Ditto for shelving supplies. Herself is re-doing our Utility Closet. On the floor plans, this was called the Utility Room, and has the hookups for washer and dryer. Our washer and dryer were on the enclosed back deck of Studio 318. Well, OK, they still are. We're contemplating putting them over here. Means that small room, or large closet (depending on viewpoint) needs a more efficient shelving plan, and Herself kept herself busy yesterday working on that. Drove the cats bonkers. What? What? Why are you changing our universe, Monkey?

Because we can. Because, cat, You Don't Have Thumbs.

Also picked up milk, and a few other groceries, and paid the U.S. Post Awful their rental on the mailbox. We don't receive post at teh Ranch. The mail box would be too far from the house, and twice a day most days I journey through the local community and so we use a post office box address. That's good for another year. Also nice that we paid it yesterday, because Monday the rent goes up. But we're good.

Then home. Time with the Bros. Who are most annoyed with the local coyote population, and so we've begun bringing all the goats into the Maternity Pen at night. Daytime (since the kids are now big enough to keep up with the herd) they go out to their paddock, but night time we bring them up closer to the house. Which provides the Bros opportunity to return their annoyance with the local coyote population. The coyote's are annoyed that shopping at teh Ranch for fresh meat just got so much more expensive. Well, yeah, it's worth their lives now. Heh.

Today, studio work, but not making photos, sorting through photos and cataloging, as well as some other work. Thursday evening was a shoot for the new Levy County Fair Association, doing a group portrait of the Executive Officers. Why yes, it's an inside job, as I'm a founding member of the LCFA. Hasn't been a Levy County Fair for nearly 50 years. We'd like to see one again, regularly. Will keep you posted on that.

Right now, breakfast. It's what's for champions. Or something like that.

Planning Ahead is a very good thing.
I try to do that.
Sometimes, it works.

Ahahahahaha. Cats are like that. My cat? Going to have a nervous breakdown before I finally end up shifting locales (in 8 days), because day by day, her world erodes. Poor baby.

Mary Kitty is the only one not freaking. I expect two reasons. She's lived here the least amount of time of the other cats (who were all, also, littered in this house); before she lived here she lived with Herself's mother. Herself and her mother are alike on this. At least once a year, some part of the house (if not most parts of the house) experience an upheaval of re-arranging.

You'd think they'd be used to it by now. I am. *G*

Close is a relative term. However, nothing (at this time) within 20 miles of us.
