They were spotting me to make sure I didn't fall off the bed while trying to change the bulbs Made me keep my feet fully planted so I wouldn't trip over them.

Handy cats to have around. Mine does everything she can to get me to trip and fall, specially at night in the dark.

We have tied a short piece of neon pink cord to her collar so we can see her in the dark both around the house and in case she gets out. It is just long enough to hang down (about 3 inches) but not so it will get her in trouble.

Since he's been deaf since birth there would be nothing he could compare the "sound" to, but I would have taken his hand and drummed on it with my fingertips to signify the drops hitting on the roof etc.

Just got back from the Sat. morning Farmers Market, and bought some good stuff although my main reason for going was the knife sharpening guy who has a stand there. Took all of my knives that were in sad shape and now they're all just like new, if not better. It was money well spent to get them done by a professional at $5.00 each. Now I can maintain them.
I'm a happy camper and anxious to get chopping.

Hacked up and Foodsavered a nice pork loin, and it is now residing in the freezer. I so badly want to make some pulled pork, but we have a fridge full of leftovers to finish up before more can join them.

I just harvested some produce from the backyard - about 2 pounds of green beans and 1/2 pound of unshelled peas, plus a couple of Roma tomatoes. A neighbor's son kept the garden watered while we were away. Time to blanch and freeze the beans.

Waiting for the running of the Belmont.

Having a "no stress" Saturday after a week of influenza, isolation, etc at work. Hopefully we can start admitting on Monday.

I'm feeling very relaxed and mellow.

TB bought "me" (read as us LOL) a mini inflatable hot tub so I can walk in water when I don't get to the pool and so I can relax my muscles since I can't get in either of our bathtubs even with the grab bars and TB's assistance. it is 6' square and 3' high, but just perfect for little laps and for me to stretch out from corner to corner. Even without the jets on, the warm water is so soothing. So yesterday and today I was in morning and night.

Perfect for after a big cake project - and I start another one tomorrow!

I am finishing up on yesterday's chores. Have laundry to fold and a very few pieces sitting in the sink waiting for attention. Then biscuits to make. Right now I am waking up and about to get my second cup of coffee.
