Earlier, out in the neighborhood with Cal. An elderly gentleman walked by as I stood up from taking these; we proceeded to discuss camelias and the weather. Talking to strangers is always energizing in some way.
We're heading to a warmer climate for the next week. The cats are crazy upset, as they always are at the sight of suitcases. Their concern is a bit over the top, as I think our housesitter, who is also our kid-sitter and practically a part of the family, loves them even more than we do.
See you soon.
