And Friday I have to do fasting blood work.

My cat-sitter Rose visited to make sure the cats didn't miss her too much (she feeds them more than we do, so they all do, especially Cinnamon whom she hand-feeds and guards when Daisy tries to steal her food), and we showed her Iceland photos. Then we had dinner and caught up on Gentleman Jack while I tried to catch up on blog comments.
