I went to lunch with my friend Valerie C. yesterday. Valerie picked me up at home at 11:30 am, and we went to Applebee’s. We ordered from the lunch menu. I had loaded potato soup and half of a club sandwich. Valerie ordered the loaded potato soup as well and, if I recall correctly, a Crispy Chicken Salad. Our lunch selections were delicious, but the free-flowing conversation between Valerie and me was best. Even though Valerie and I live within a couple miles of each other, we do not see each other often. We do keep in touch via Facebook. Both Valerie and I think lunch once a month is a great idea. I am looking forward to our next lunch date.
Last month I asked Valerie if she could make a catnip mat for me similar to one that I saw on a friend’s Facebook post. Valerie made me two catnip mats! She gave the mats to me right before leaving for Applebee’s.
I placed a couple tablespoons of catnip inside one mat last night.
Wickett was rolling around on the mat, within minutes of laying the mat on our living room couch.
This morning, when I got up, I found Wickett lying on her new mat.
The new mat is on the center cushion of our couch, where Wickett usually lies when Bob and I are sitting in the living room.
The catnip mat should cut back on the amount of cat hair that we have to remove from the couch!
I am undecided on where to place the second catnip mat.
