It's Thursday so it's laundry and housecleaning day. Pew. But it has to be done. Went pretty well today. The humidity is down, which made the laundry dry quickly. That was a plus. Still have to fold and put away. Cleaning went pretty well, too.

Spent the afternoon writing. Gotta strike while the iron is hot. Felt like taking a nap. Haven't recovered completely from Tuesday's election marathon.

Of course, it goes without saying that all our furchildren were fed and loved.

Sitting on the front porch with Buck right now having an adult beverage and watching the kittens romp and play. Life is good.

so far, I did one load of laundry, loaded and ran dishwasher, fed cats and kittens, started crockpot with food for tonight's supper. Also gave two cats their medicine, gave one kitten his medicine. Fed outside cat, cleaned and put aluminum cans in recyle bin outside. Weighed one cat and two kittens, not at all at once . one at a time. Made coffee.

Afternoon : backed up my digital files to dvd, and to external hard drive.
Finished cooking supper. Made a batch of cake mix cookies.

Awesome mountain range LT!

On my schedule today is calling the council (BSA) and getting some paperwork taken care of, laying around the house till about 3, then making pizza dough. Can't decide if we're going traditional (pepperoni/peppers/onions) Wild (Blazin hot buffalo chicken pizza) or new and experimental (cheeseburger pizza?)

Since I am ordered to rest my leg again today my schedule is:

Sit in my basket chair with laptop, TV remote and phone at the ready
Start working colour into some gumpaste for the roses I need to start for a cake
Call and order delivery of a Pizza for the border and I
Do my leg and arm exercises 3 times
Pick which PPV movie DH and I will watch when he gets home tonight

And for me that is a tough day.....I hate just sitting around!
