Small accomplishments

Started out with intentions to clear out the work room (again), but got side tracked. I figured while I still had the sewing machine, I should do the blackout curtain between the cab and the living space. I used a new packing blanket, a piece of scrap pipe and a couple of pipe mounts. I now have a nice heavy curtain that will block air, warm or cold, and light between the front and the back. The black side is facing the cab.

I still need to do the window over the bed and over the sink, plus the door. Not quite sure what I will be doing there, but have a couple more packing blankets I can use. 

Kali Cat spent some time in Ody voluntarily yesterday. She actually waited for me to open the door so she could go in. I closed the screen and checked on her periodically, she seemed content.

I do need to get the front seats covered, I really don't want cat hair embedded in them. And I guess she might be getting that mini quilt too...but we'll see. I still have my washer, so maybe not. I made up a litter box for her yesterday too. It ended up between the front seats as it wouldn't fit on the floor in front of the passenger seat. I guess I will use that area for, litter, etc.

I think I am going to go see if Toni sold the kennel she had there. I'm thinking it will fit nicely in the front passenger seat. I will have to do some measuring. Kali Cat won't like it, but I can't have her trying to get in my lap all big eyed and scared while I am driving. Her carrier is at the post office and I will be picking that up this morning, but I'm hoping I won't have to use it. I am really worried about her adapting at her age.

I had to give Kali Cat a flea treatment the other day. She has been scratching for a while, but I never saw any signs of fleas until Thursday. I promptly treated her. The scratching increased, she dropped some dead fleas, and doesn't seem to be scratching much this morning. Progress. She has never had them before. A sure sign she is getting old.

Her new thing is jumping up on counters. She has done that several times in the last week or so, and takes her time getting down when I yell at her. Last night she refused to move, and I gave up. This is her sitting in the four inches behind the laptop. She just wants to be near me.

One more Friday Night Live campfire for me after last night. No pics this week. It looked just like the last five. I will snap a few at the last one.

Well, off to try and get something accomplished this morning. Hopefully the craft room.

Oh, I ordered the Straight Talk mobile wifi. It won't work up here, but should wherever there is a Verizon signal. (Or is it TMobile?) Either way, I am going to give it a try. Got the 5 Gig card. See how much I use in a month. I can always add to it, and if I find I am using a lot more, will switch to Mellenicom. Trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible.
