Good morning, I'm thinking about the day ahead, and what I can achieve before I snuggle up with Mayze cat in bed tonight. I love these longer days, I feel totally inspired by daylight, it's telling me to make the most of it.
Opening up the computer, I'm on the small laptop the one I take with me on my walking trips, I see Scott o Connors face has popped up on the right hand side. He's the wood working man over the pond in Ventura. He put a new video on yoootoob yesterday and I made a comment on it. He is very good at replying and answering any questions.
Over on facebook Helen has put pictures of her beautiful garden, which made me shed a tear, thinking about how Henry choc lab used to mooch around there and jump in the pond when she wasn't looking. Little things remind us of the furry friends who are no longer here.
Twitter full of chatter on the Eurovision Song Contest last night. Some people seem to like it, not me, I haven't watched it since I was a teenager. Didn't Abba win once? And a girl singer from Ireland? Oh and I thought the bearded lady who won it was quite good. Caught a bit of that because it was all over the press.
Thirteen comments came in overnight, eight of them were Anonymous crap, the same old same old. That word Anonymous is like a red rag to a bull now, zap zap zap, no questions just sod off.
So, what am I doing today? The new cat shelter is finished. I was at it all yesterday afternoon, just managed to get it done by six o clock when the rain started. I think it has been raining all night, which is good because it saved me watering up. If the rain holds off today I want to get the old shelter out and the new one put in it's place. I want to stand it on a pallet and I have two in the garage, but that means shifting a load of wood to get one out. I only hope they are the right size. I think the saw may be needed. I might have to borrow a man to help me lift the new one, it's a bit heavy.
I was up at six this morning, doing a bit of stitching before the kids got up and demanded food. Micky was outside on his usual spot, on the table outside the back door. Yesterday you would have thought that I had four cats, think I ought to rename this place. Tightwad Towers is fast becoming Cats Cosy Creche.
Breakfast was porridge, nuts and seeds, blueberries and raspberries. I am finding frozen berries a lot more convenient than buying fresh, and they are not that expensive at Aldi. Lunch today will be the same as last nights dinner, I made two portions. Chopped onion, frozen mushrooms, Quorn mince, thinly sliced potato, and a tin of mixed beans. Turmeric, veg granules, and curry powder added. Very nice. The fridge is looking a bit empty but I am holding off going shopping, I have enough in the cupboards and freezer.
Nine fifteen and I must get my bum out of this chair. I missed a walk yesterday because I was busy, then it was raining. Must make more effort today. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
