I slept in today - not getting out of bed till 7 which is really unheard of for me. I had not slept well the night before, so I guess I was catching up a bit. The weekend was tiring.
There was getting together with Dee on Saturday morning which was lovely. The balance of the weekend seemed to be spent in doing grocery shopping, laundry, some cleaning and some wrapping. But mainly Mabel had my attention.
We have a shelf on one of the walls in our living room and there is a mantle clock on the shelf. Above that, hanging on the wall is a banjo that Fletch made. Twice this weekend Mabel jumped onto the shelf and then onto the banjo! I thought I was going to lose my mind. Luckily there was no damage to anything (a miracle if you ask me).
Over the weekend she (finally) learned to use the cat door in our basement door. Now she can go down to the basement and come back up on her own. This is a good thing because it means we can (finally) move the litter box out of the downstairs bathroom and put it in the basement. We also plan to get her acclimated to going outside this week. Fingers crossed that goes well.
And last night she was sweet as pie. Fletch and I were sitting on the sofa watching the first episode of the new season of Shetland and she jumped up on my lap then moved over to Fletch and then back to me, etc., etc.
I've two conference calls again today. One at ten and one (I think) at 11:30. Other than that I hope to do a little wrapping. Colin's birthday is next Saturday and we will probably give him gifts Thursday when he is over for dinner. I'd also like to wrap some gifts that need to be shipped. I'm planning to be in the office on Wednesday and will send stuff out via UPS from there. Much easier than going to the post office or a UPS store.
It is forecast to be mild today (60!!) and I'd love to get out for a walk, but I think we will be having rain too.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
