Holding her own...

I got Ody cleaned and back to her storage spot yesterday. The fridge slowed me down a little, I had emptied it, turned it off and forgot about it, so I had some extra cleaning to do. I did the shower a second time and it looks pretty nice. Furniture polished all the woodwork, vacuumed the whole thing including the cab area, washed all the other surfaces, including the floors. I also took the rugs out and treated them with carpet cleaner and hosed them down. They were almost dry when I put them back in. She looks nice. Better than when I bought her. Today I need to clean the tracker. Shouldn’t take as long since it is considerably smaller. I already have someone interested in the tracker. Got them both listed as a pair on craigslist late yesterday. The listing is here...

I also did laundry and made a batch of quinoa and ground pork meatballs for the freezer. It was either use the ground pork or put it in the freezer for later, and I really wanted to have something quick and easy to fix in the freezer, so I went ahead and used it. They don’t take that long to make and I had already cooked the quinoa a day or so ago so I could make meatballs.

My flat pack living room furniture is supposed to arrive today, so I will spend some time putting that together. One of the pieces is a writing desk for my computer so I can get it off the table. Plus there are two end tables and a coffee table. Not sure when my recliner will arrive, it still shows as being in fulfillment. I’m hoping it is already on the way.

Kali Cat had a little difficulty peeing yesterday, but it wasn’t enough to make her cry or pee anywhere else than her box. I am trying to keep the box clean for her and am cleaning it several times a day. That also tells me if she is having problems or not. This morning she ate a good breakfast and got most of her meds. Yesterday, not so much. I can’t really say if she is sleeping more than usual as that is what cats do - sleep. I think we might have a bit of a reprieve. She hasn’t howled since Saturday night or the trip to the vet. I have tossed more food than I want to think about. That stuff is pretty expensive, but if she won’t eat it not much I can do.

This morning I have been looking at area rugs for the living room. The one I found that I really like is out of my price range, almost $300. The other one I like that is in my price range has that rubber backing. That stuff sticks to everything after it has been down a while, and I don’t need it sticking to the dark green carpet, which knocks it out of the running. There is a third one, I don’t like it as much as the first, and it doesn’t have the rubber backing, but does have the colors I want. Here are the two rugs without the one with the rubber backing. The first one is the one I like, but costs too much, the second is in my price range and is similar.

I will have to decide at some point in the near future, or just live with the dark green carpet.

Well, I guess that is about it for today. This afternoon I am joining some of the neighborhood ladies for Friday Fish Fry at the Yacht Club. They eat dinner VERY early here. Assuming that Kali Cat maintains. If she doesn’t, I won’t be going anywhere. I really hope my recliner comes soon, I would like some lap time before it is too late. 


  1. If yoiu can, I would go with the first one as you will be looking at the rug for a long time and maybe when you do it will bring a smile to you.

  2. Despite all your cleaning I still can't imagine the smell of the numerous cat 'accidents' getting out of your rig.

    Also, I sure hope you'll be letting any potential buyers know that there is a leak in the fresh water tank, and it's not been repaired yet. Give them a running chance for success after they purchase it and head off to parts unknown. Since you've posted all about these things, you can't act like you didn't know about these issues if they come back for a refund.

  3. I'm holding off on the rug for now. I might see something I like when I am out and about, but have added it to my wish list. Thanks for your input. :) I do like the first one better.

    Frank, I'm guessing you haven't gotten a sense of who I am. I am a firm believer in full disclosure. As for the cat smell, well, that is the price of having animals. Some people are better at cleaning up than others, and if it is there, the buyer will know. They will be told a cat traveled with me. There are a lot of dishonest people out there, but I am not one of them.
