I'm having my meowning coffee
Thought I'd write a bit
Tell you what's what in my life
Had a busy weekend
Mr. Boatman got home from his travels
Continued to paint the house
That meant two trips to Lowe's
That's right ... I feel at home there
Been there so much that I broke down yesterday
I've walked by the Halloween & now Christmas counters so many times ... it's on the way to the bird seed section.
(Have to do something while Mr. Boatman takes forever to find that ever loving part to the thing that he is fixing. I'm sure you all know what I mean ...)
Anyway, I got a six pack
of the cutest candy cane ornaments
The box talked to me
You know how they do that
~~~ dog barking .. be back in a moment ... which dog you ask. Cause you always ask these things. Maddy Jean my Golden Retreiver. Who is the trouble maker in the family ~~~
I'm Back ... she, I am guessing, needed to see if the 35 degrees out back had warmed up in the last ten minutes. I'm going to sip on my coffee and let her think about it for a while. Ok, I'll leave you all if she barks. I'm a softy but next time I will let her bark it out ....
Anyway, those candy cane ornaments did not just jump in my hand. They'd talked to me for weeks. Yes, I go to Lowe's almost every weekend. Seems like I ought to buy stock ... maybe I already own some. Oh by the way, the boy scouts are selling popcorn as you leave the store. A bit pricey, fifteen dollars, but be prepared. I was after my third trip. Not bad popcorn ... buttery ... full of calories ... YUM. Not the low everything kind I usually buy.
So, I got new bird food. Suets to be exact. Mr. Boatman got more of our trim. He got more of the actual house paint on Saturday. Could he have bought the trim then too ? Of course but he knew I would miss my so called dates. I told him that this was not a date. He just laughed.
~~~ Dog wants in now ... drink your coffee while you wait ~~~
Back. Maddy Jean has settled in front of the door. Looking oh so cozy.
What else is knew ? Spiders everywhere but that's not new news. Cats are being cute. That's old news but never dull. We moved the old tv to my sons room. That meant we moved the old tv cabinet downstairs. It spent Saturday night in the hallway. I told the boys to lean it against the wall. They thought it was fine standing in the middle of the room. Oh those sillies ...
Not two minutes later, all four of my cats are either on top of it or inside of it ... where the two drawers used to be. Jumping and hiding went on for quite a while. The cabinet is now in the garage. So are a lot of the boxes from the last several weeks. I did leave Ashton one of his boxes which he jumped into first thing this meowning.
That was in the middle of his talking spree. Yes, he was mewing away. He's finally napping but boy ... ha ha ... did he have a few mews to say to me. I could go on and on about the remodeling of this old house but I'll save that for later ... have to have something to blog about don't I ?
