How was your weekend? Ours was good. We completely forgot about the time change! LOL Sunday is the one morning of the week I fix breakfast for us. I got up as usual and cooked some bacon and made blueberry pancakes. We were in the kitchen consuming when the radio host mentioned the time. We were both "What???" It was nice to come across an extra hour that morning, but boy it got dark fast in the afternoon.
Friday I skipped out of my office right after my conference call and zoomed over to DSW. I needed/wanted some new sneakers and I had a $25 coupon that was set to expire on Sunday. I found a pair I liked and stopped at Pet Smart to look at cat carriers (we had given our carrier to Colin & Mailing after Tyg was killed). Anyway, I didn't find any I like (I bought one on Amazon instead and it arrived yesterday.) Fletch was over at Colin & Mailing's watching Dune and when I got home I heard the radio on. I had not turned it on before leaving the house. We have a Bose radio/cd player in the kitchen and if you touch the top it will turn on or off. Guess who must have jumped up on the table and walked across the radio?
Saturday another plant hit the floor and came out of its pot. I had watered the indoor plants in the morning and decided to move my African violet into the living room. That was a mistake. It didn't even take 5 minutes for that plant to wind up on the floor. I cleaned up that mess and then left to meet up with Dee for some needed therapy - coffee, knitting and chatting.
Then there is the second scratching "thing" that Mabel has. Fletch bought this one and it is shaped like a cat with a big fluffy tail.
The green stuff? Why that's the stuffing for the tail. More than scratching, Mabel apparently just loves pulling things apart.
Then there is this dried arrangement (with some wooden flowers included). (And the plant on top of the pile of books is the first one that Mabel knocked over breaking its original pot. Thankfully it seems to be doing ok in a new pot and a new location.)
There are some dried cattails and fronds from our yard in the arrangement which used to be on a table in the living room. But, for the second time someone (that would be Mabel) has knocked it over. Luckily the vase did not break...but those fronds? Apparently they are the best kitty toys. She pulls them out of the vase and trots around with them in her mouth. Then she plays with them and God knows how many have been batted under the stove. That girl is definitely still in the kitten stage.
The balance of the weekend was pleasant. Colin and Mailing were over for dinner (I made crawfish etouffee and also the cranberry pie that Bonny blogged about - DELICIOUS!!). I managed to find plenty of time to knit and stitch and read! And I successfully avoided all chores like cleaning and laundry. To me, that is a successful weekend!
Today I'm heading back to the office. Both Bruce and Mike will be in and I need to meet with both of them. I'm hoping (fingers crossed) to be out of there by lunch time. Wishing you all a great start to a new week - enjoy!
