I just finished last night's leftovers for breakfast. One of my better one pot concoctions. And now I'm watching fishing shows Nothing on TV interests me, so the fishing shows will be nice background I don't have to pay attention to.

This is a very important point that somebunny brought up.

Thankfully, it's the same type of new growth they get every year, above the graft. There won't be any flowers though, as all the long canes were winter-killed.

Wild roses are pretty too. They make great rose hips.

A rosa is tough, hard to kill and very pretty. Also very thorny. I just helped a friend pick a cultivar of a wild rose that supposedly doesn't have as many thorns.

I'm drinking my first cup of coffee. Today is the day I take my pill for osteoporosis, so I have to wait half an hour after I take it before I can have my coffee. During that half hour I fed Shreddy and went out for a few puffs. Shreddy came outside with me and found some rain water, which he had to drink.

I had a quick look at DC and FB replies and then it was time to make my coffee. Shreddy wanted more food, so I gave him some, since he isn't eating a lot. I went back to the computer and realized I hadn't brought my coffee. I had only made the espresso, I hadn't added the hot water to elongate it or removed the coffee ground holder from the espresso machine. I removed and rinsed the coffee ground holder and moved my cup next to the electric kettle. I changed Shreddy's water because it had bits of food in it. I went back to the computer and, again, no coffee. Back to the kitchen to elongate the coffee. Added milk to the coffee which emptied the carton, so it had to be rinsed and squashed for recycling. I was afraid I would forget the coffee yet again so I concentrated on remembering it and realized my headache was getting worse, so I grabbed a couple of AC&C. Finally made it back to the chesterfield and computer with the coffee.

I hate trying to do stuff before my first coffee.

Was your coffee cold by the time you got to drink it? :(

Nope, still hot. It would have been cold if I hadn't elongated it with hot water from the kettle.

Time for my second cup. I'll see how that goes. Shreddy is snoozing, so there might be less distraction.

I am sitting here waiting to hear from The Pirate. He stormed out of here yesterday in a fit of temper. I didn't buy him cigarettes when I went to the store. How cruel. I ran into Spike and he told me that he had bought a pack for him. Before I could tell The Pirate that he blew up and stormed out. Oh well. If you want to act like a 50+ child, go right ahead. Just happy you took it somewhere else.

(((Hugs Addie)))

The second cup of coffee made it to the coffee table in one try. Yay! I did get distracted while waiting for the espresso machine to heat up. I loaded the dishwasher, but I didn't forget my coffee.
