No, this isn't normal for Florida. I hope it isn't going to be the new normal, because I don't think I can deal with this for the rest of my life, but I fear it likely will be.
Delaney came over on Saturday and asked if I'd have the afghan I'm making for her (which isn't started yet) done soon. I told her not to worry, it will be done for our first cool night, sometime around Thanksgiving.
Canada sounds so nice, for so many reasons.
How is Ellie? Awesome. I took her to the vet yesterday for her free checkup. I was so happy that my vet is on the Pet Alliance list of doctors, you can either see their own vets at their facilities or take your new animal to one of the doctors who work with them, and my own beloved veterinary office is one of them, so Ellie got to meet Dr. Maureen, and vice versa. She was pronounced healthy and beautiful and fabulous. Dr. Maureen shook my hand and congratulated me on finding such a wonderful cat.
Ellie saw the weather forecast and has vowed to spend the next two months like this.
