Hi, Syl! I just saw that NawtyKitty has had an awful lot of loss recently. I'm not friends with her, but my heart hurts for her nonetheless. If you find the time, would you let her know she is in my thoughts? Many thanks, fren. xo
The party was nice, and the food was good. I had chicken parmesean, which is my favorite Italian dish. Chile rellenos are a good choice. When will you redo your deck? It's nice your kittehs have an outdoor enclosure. I bet they love that. How was your day? Mine has been alright so far, but busy. Have a great Monday :)
Ohai Syl!! So great to see you cranking 'em out again! (some definite FPs in there aifinkso) So guess who was outside just waiting for me today? My duck couple!!!When I saw them there I hurried and got dressed and brought out my bag of bread. The male started walking over to me, softly quacking, before I even had it open ;) When I put out the bread and he started eating (no more than 4 feet from me) the female saw it was safe and came over to us to get some too:)) I'm thinking they have a nest nearby (??) but I know NOTHING about where ducks make their nests...
Hey, we don't all need the "handsome prince" to have a good ending to the story. And in an age where you didn't get paid unless it was a flattering painting... I think Cinderella will be better off with Average Guy Bill the Forrester.
Yech! Sorry you didn't get to do the stuff you planned! But you'll have one less thing to do when the weather gets better. When that happens, you can enjoy the deck!! We have a very decent amount of store's/shops here in our village. 3 Small grocery store's! But we do the 'once a week grocery shopping' like you. So we go to a nearby town, where there's a mega grocery store. In that same building they have a few other 'everyday needs' (like a drug store) shops, so we can get most of what we need in the same building :-D If we want to go and do some serious shopping, for gifts, or clothing and stuffs, we do have to go to a town other then our own. Luckily we have a few nice towns near our village. I'm totally with you on the elderly shopping ordeal!! But it's not just older people... how about those housewife's that take up an entire aisle just talking!!! Specialy when you know they're neighbors, and they see each other every day!! Go home, and have coffee or something!!! Sooo annoying!!! Our neighbors are getting ready for spring/summer too! Not just us who have been cleaning the garden/patio. Just about all of them are busy now :-) It's nice to see more of them again, now everyone's coming out of their houses more often. They do predict better weather for the coming weekend!! The rest of the week is kindda like the weather your having. Warmer temps, but more rain. Hope you'll get everything you need to fix the deck!! Good luck with that!! Lub en hugz right back at you :-D
with patches, I pick him up like a baby and scritch his belly and his chest and under his chin and his motor just starts going but he rarely really asks for that, maybe because I do it so often he feels he doesn't need to ask
yup I got my clothes sorted. I looked at weather.com and it's looking like upper 70's and lower 80's during the day and 60's at night. molly is just being a sweetie as it is. she's talking a LOT more and then she'll walk on the couch up to me and meow and look at me and roll over and just look at me. I swear if she had eye lashes she'd be batting them. then she stretches and twists while she's rolling on her back and reaches her paws out "scritch my chin mommy"
This is the first time I've tried to over-winter my impatiens. I just took a bunch of cuttings last fall and stuck them in water jars in the kitchen window and amazingly enough almost all of them made it. They're about the only flower I've found that does well in my shady yard, tho I have to plant them in pots and not in the ground. At least that way I can move them around and bunch them up and they do look nice. And yeah, summer color from April through November. Gotta love that! Boy, Bryan's been eating his Wheaties, hasn't he? lol! It sounds like your cats have it made at your house! How great! Yep, I think the minute Elf sees the brush in my hand he starts drooling! He could use a bib, too! hah! I ED'd your trip to Applebee's. I tell ya, if the toaster went out in our restaurant, we sure would have had someone run to the store and buy another one! $10 off was a good deal tho. We went there one time for dinner and that was enough for us.
Thank you for the congrats. Break wasn't much of a break as far as doing chores, but I didn't have to go to work. That helped a lot. CUA has some great pictures in his Stuff and has kindly invited folks to caption them. I think you will find them inspiring. Have a good day.
Okay if it do it from here it goes thru! I haven't told you, but Kim (my GOOD niece) died suddenly on the day before Easter. They 'think' it was her heart but nothing has been decided yet. Yesterday was her memorial in Texas, and I of course, could not attend, even though I would have loved to fly down there for it. She lived in assisted living and was 5 years younger than me. It was a huge shock, but I know she is in a better place than here :( She was in quite a bit of pain and I really am trying to tell myself she is better off, but you know how difficult that is. On the BRIGHT side, I saw a pair of mallard DUCKS visiting my bunny bistro yesterday! I was hilarious to see them waddling down the street and into my drive just to get some bread. They stood "ankle deep" in a big puddle right behind my car for a long time. you just don't expect to see that in a downtown neighbor hood far from any lake or park :)
Yeah, Applebees is not exactly destination dining. Grabbing a couple toasters from next door would have been just too easy. There are times when Becky does enjoy the petting. She's just not a fanatic about it like most dogs are. I wonder how many times you'll be told "we just need one more thing signed..." You'd think with all the checklists that must exist that you wouldn't have to go through that but I'll bet you do. At least this real estate transaction is going more smoothly than the re-fi. I don't think you could have taken any more situations like that. I hope the clouds part for you for a while tomorrow. A Monday without DG just doesn't seem right. And who ever heard of anything in Western Washington being negatively impacted by rain? On that note I'm going to bed. Don't stay up too late.
