My Cup Runneth Over…

It’s 7:30 a.m. as I write this, and already it has been one of “those” days.

Oh, it started out well enough. At 5:30 a.m., the dog and I went for a beautiful walk along the river…



…and watched the sunrise…



It was a grand way to start the day, don’t you think?

Then we came home and I began the usual morning routine.

At 6:30, I made coffee with my Aeropress, a manual press system that makes coffee right into your cup. Rather than pressing, I tend to leave it to drip while I do other things in the kitchen, such as making my green smoothie. This usually works well. When you preheat your cup with hot water and forget to empty it before filling the Aeropress, however…

Yup. My cup literally overflowed.

While I was mopping up the mess and grinding more coffee, I heard the kitten into something in the living room. Further investigation revealed this:



What is it? Oh, only the power cord for my Internet…… >.<

(Ha! “The cat ate my Internet.” Bet that’s one you haven’t heard before!)


But wait, it gets better!  Because at 7:20? The freaking dog thanked me for the morning walk by digging up the garden bed alongside the house. AGAIN.

Suffice it to say that I’m slightly concerned about what the rest of the day holds at this point, and I’m seriously considering a return to bed.

Or maybe a drink.

Because it’s 5:00 somewhere, right? 😉

    I vote you go back to bed! Yeesh. But, “the cat ate my internet” – too funny. 😀

      Yes, despite my annoyance, I’m finding the humour in that one, too, Bea! 😀

    What kind of hairdo does kitty have after eating a power cord! 🙂
    Tomorrow you stop at your coffee shop for a latte until THAT experience is out of your system.
    Maybe another walk tonight to watch the sunset, with hubby not puppy will be possible and be restorative.
    Big mittens duct taped to puppy’s paws and…..mmmmm….let’s see……
    Yes…wine…because 5 A.M. counts!

    Hugs to you Linda.

    OHMYGOSH I am again reminded why I no longer have pets. teehee

      Fortunately kitty was uninjured…even after I caught her. 😉 And yes, you may be onto something with the pet-less idea…there would be somewhat less stress involved, I suspect. Bug sadly, fewer kitten-kisses, too. 🙂

    The pictures from your walk were pretty, but it doesn’t sound like you’re having a good day! Hopefully the rest of it is better, and definitely have that drink at some point lol

      I just thought it was hilarious that so much managed to happen before 7:30 in the morning, to be honest. And yes, there will be wine tonight. Or Bailey’s. Or both. 😉

    It’s definitely 5 o’clock somewhere, Linda! No, I’ve never heard “The cat ate my internet” before…and I think the fur-babies are conspiring to drive you insane 😉 I do hope the day improves for you!

      I have a new cord and Internet connection again, Reanna, so things are definitely looking up! 🙂
