Saturday was errand/ sit on the train carrying heavy things around day. Yesterday, we cleaned the apartment and made it into a livable space again. Jo is suffering from his cold, and the heat doesn't help. We switched off the broadcast for a bit to plug in the AC before finding another way to power the electronic equipment. It helped a little against the stove, where I was making Moroccan mint tea to chill in the fridge, and boiling beets for an evening salad.
Today is day 3 of the New England "heat wave". Just last week I was freezing my ass off in the 50 degree morning air. Randomness. Jo is at home boiling away. And I have to say that I'm grateful for a little cool office air! I don't mind the heat, don't get me wrong. I dislike cold immensely, but a break now and then is welcome :)
Tomorrow, between 8am -10am, KT will be picked up by Precious Pets Transport and taken away down to Texas. Im missing him already. I know he will have a fabulous new home, but it's been 8 years since I've been "petless". It's a strange concept to have a wobbly cat NOT underfoot. Sigh. But this being said, no more pets for awhile. Not in Japan and not when I return again.
