Just another Monday. Knocking out paperwork left and right. Can't wait to get home!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
I'm back at my desk at work trying to mentally regroup and figure out what's important and what can wait! I don't feel like I had a very restorative weekend... Virtually no self-care!
Tonight I have to take both boys to the vet clinic for their annual tune-ups. A bored receptionist called yesterday to remind me and to tell me to bring in poo samples. Decided that since they have both been on parasite prevention meds for the last year I am not doing it! Juggling two bouncing dogs, two bags of labeled poo, and myself is just too complicated for the end of the day! IF the vet, who knows me really well, convinces me that the poo samples are important I'll grit my teeth, pick up and KEEP the poo, and get it labeled by dog.
It's gray and drizzly here today but also strangely warm. Glad I did the dog walk this morning before the drizzle started!

Overcast and hot this morning, may have thunderstorms this afternoon. Lots of thunder yesterday afternoon, but fortunately that was all we got here. Farther north they had downpours, flash floods, and at least 3 house fires caused by lightning.
I'll be working at the library in the middle of the day. Not much else planned except playing with my kittens. They're adorable!
Some huge holiday in Quebec today, so everything is closed. Lots of town celebrations. But, it will be too hot. Andrew has a soccer game this morning. I might bring James to the splash park this afternoon. It is almost 8 am and everyone else is still asleep! I will go eat my breakfast peacefully for a change.
