Today being the Fourth of July we invited some friends over to barbecue some burgers, and then play poker. Somehow though I got the impression that today's weather was supposed to be bad, so I called everyone to cancel the BBQ part and come a bit later for the card game.
Well, naturally the weather is gorgeous today and we could have cooked a treat out there. Grrr.
Still, that does give me more time to laze around reading Agatha Christie short stories and trim the cat's claws. Edith wasn't exactly keen but acquiesced because with all her fur she's just too warm to kick up a stink at the moment; unfortunately Nancy was convinced I was trying to kill her and complained like hell. I only managed to do Nancy's front paws, so we have to go through all that again to get her back claws too. sigh.
