Been busy this week....Started teaching the Computer Literacy Basics class at the Community College. It has not been without its challenges. The students' textbooks have arrived but, the instructor textbook seems to be lost in UPS limbo. I do love a challenge.

Sitting doing one of the most boring jobs in the universe. Pulling threads at the edge of some fabric so I can "square" it for a project. This is almost as much fun as watching paint dry.

Before doing this, I called the bakery to order our anniversary cake. Every year on our anniversary we order a 6-inch version of our wedding cake. It was soooooooo good that we decided to make a tradition of having a small one to celebrate our anniversary. Yum. Two more weeks and we can dig in.

I'm thinking about getting some work done. Much easier think about work than to do it. We're currently blessed with really nice weather, it was 67 when I looked at the thermometer. Considering giving Sally a bath today, and cleaning out the interior tomorrow. Would be nice to have a sparkling clean car when we take off on vacation. In order to keep it clean until then I'll have to make sure Himself is taking HIS car when we go out. (Sally is a lot more fun to drive than his car. Hmm, his car needs a name...)

Getting ready for a busy weekend of catering. One of the parties is appetizers, lots of prep. The other is a church dinner, It will be a full weekend. Then, Saturday afternoon the daughter has a piano recital, along with having 2, 15 year old German students here. I am ready for a day off!

What numbers is your daughter playing? I hope you are taking the students with you to hear her. She will have her very own international cheering section.

I always found that if I didn't look up away from the keyboard and at the audience, I was all right. Then when I finished and had to acknowledge them, I would start to shake. I always got stage fright after I finished the piece.

Not much chance of that CG! (The not forgetting part I mean)

Far better than I was expecting! And yes, I went with the Police Academy - hopefully I will be starting on Monday 28th October. Unless they find out about my huge criminal past that is....

As for being stuffy? I have a feeling that I am a lot less stuffy since I started chatting with Americans and Canadians a few years ago!

Heading out to was the car. Yeah, yeah, I know, that was yesterday's plan. It was going to be wash the outside yesterday, clean the inside today. By the time I finished with a load of laundry, take care of the dishwasher (I stop it when it hits the dry cycle and let things air-dry so I have a couple things I tend to before I can walk away) and finish up on DC it was too late to wash. At least the inside is done. Now I have to go and get the outside washed before it gets too late...again!

Have a good afternoon all! See ya later.

I had an appointment with the vet's dietitian. That was disappointing. I don't think I want to feed Shreddy, a cat and obligate carnivore, strawberries, spinach, or pumpkin.

She recommended the same book as the other vet clinic. It's a paperback book that costs ~$27 and can only be bought from vets. The recipes require "Hilary's Blend" supplement, which is expensive and can only be bought from vets. This is starting to look like greed to me.

I think I'll go with PF's suggestion: Making Cat Food by Lisa A. Pierson, DVM :: homemade cat food, cat food recipes

From all the reading I have done, and I've done a lot, this vet sounds the most sensible.
