The topic: Bernie is acclimating nicely


There's minimal hissing. Charlie discovered the top floor of the "house" yesterday, I found him asleep behind the towel.  Brian said he'd seen him in there earlier eating the little wet food she'd left.

She laid with me on the sofa last night, Brian went to bed, I stayed where I was because I didn't want to bother her. Then, Tommy started yowling out front, he was late, so I got up to feed him. She got up as well, so I just went to bed.

I can hardly wait until I feel secure enough letting her go outside. The breeze is better with all of the doors open, even the screens. Her hearing is what has me most concerned about her being in the out. (And I just shake my head thinking that she had been living in the out before she came to us.)

She does check out the house more, not so much as exploring, but just checking it out. Maybe remembering where the food and water are for emergency situations. Whatever she's doing, she does not seem curious at all.

The topic: Spent yesterday in the office


Scanning and printing out photos that Mark and Brian want to send to the other kids when checks are sent. They're old photos that Marion had up on the shelves in the dining room. Family photos.

The first three went pretty smoothly, no issues. But the last, the studio portrait of Brian's mom and dad? I spent hours trying to get the colors right. Her jacket was a dark turquoise color and when the jacket color was right, the skin tones were awful.  I tried all sorts of settings, five different types of photo paper.  After six last night, I finally got something acceptable. I'm still not thrilled with the skin tone, but it will be okay.

Like Brian said "at least it looks real in this one".....
