Good Mornoing All,
How are you and how was your weekend? Mine was good and I hope yours was too.
Saturday morning I met up with Dee at the Manhattan Bagel in Lansdale. We went there because I had to stop by C&M's to feed Marcel and Talbot. Convenience is everything. Even if the horrible singer was there (again) (they need to get someone else to entertain).
Saturday night Fletch and I started watching Season 8 of Shetland. I wasn't sure I would like it without Jimmy Perez (LOL), but we both thought the first episode was good.
Sunday the temps were very mild (50's) but we had rain ALL day long, so it felt rather damp and chilly. I think that's over for now. I managed to do a little knitting and a little cleaning. I got as far as putting a Christmas tablecloth on the table and a seasonal runner on the buffet, but I have yet to drag out the birch log and other decorations that are standards in our house. We have (finally) made a decision on a tree. We will get a small table top tree that we can have in the living room and see how Mabel deals with it. Hopefully she will just think it is beautiful and then leave it alone! Ha! Of course we have not gotten it yet, but hopefully this week.
Today I will go over to feed the cats this morning and then head to the office. I need to print some things and overnight them to Kevin. I also have a big (meaning a lot of people on it) conference call at 10 which I will plan to take at the office. Then it will be off to Trader Joe's for a few things, Staples for a couple of things and, of course, the State Store for some wine (always some wine).
And then I am off on Tuesday and Wednesday! Yup - I emailed all the powers that be and told them I wanted to take a couple of days off and they were fine with that. I will also be off the week between Christmas and New Years (though most of those days are holidays anyway). No real plans for this week other than I did make an appointment to have a haircut (again!!) on Wednesday.
Mailing flies up tomorrow for work, so we will be "off" cat duty for a couple of days. The break will be nice. So, a good weekend and a start to what I am sure will be a good week. I did not take any pictures over the weekend, but my brother in Colorado sent me a picture of his backyard a few days ago:
A beautiful creature, but I'm glad we do not have them around here! My brother and his family are vigilant since they have dogs - one of which is a small one...
