|The great furry huntress, even if only in her imagination...|
The windchill right now is -12. After a record high of 65 earlier in the week, I am really feeling this cold weather.
Victoria is once again sitting on her little rocking chair, looking out toward the deck and the backyard. There is a flock of little birds all cuddled together in a large bush near the fence. She seems to think one of them will come near enough to pounce upon... and being an overly optimistic kitty... she chooses to forget the window in the french door to the deck.
We use to tell Sasha and Storm (our beloved elderly sister kitties who passed away a few years ago) that they would not know what to do with a bird even if they did catch one. Victoria, on the other hand, would... don't let that lovely face fool you. Within her is the soul of a hunter. ;)
The comment about me finishing all my To Do list made me smile. After about fourteen years now of living with a chronic illness, I have learned to write out a daily To Do list which is within reasonable limits, hehehe.
On the days I have more energy, the list is longer. Recently the list has been simply a couple loads of laundry, meals, dishes (always more dishes), and perhaps a little decorating by tweaking here and there. Which is also why there are about twelve flagged e-mails waiting for a reply.
I'm always exhausted by dinner time but I've learned if I immediately let the dinner dishes take a bath in very hot, soapy water... by the time I've rested a bit the water is not as hot and the dishes are easy to wash.
Then I can curl up on the sofa with a feeling of great accomplishment as we have been fed, have clean clothing, and the house is relatively clutter free (unless one of us is in the midst of a creative project... which is not clutter but Art).
Oh, by request... I've put the Scrapbook Journal page link back under the Header. If you click on it, it will bring up the page that has a link to the Scrapbook Journal archives.
I had removed a couple page links during the Holidays to give me more room. Come to think of it, this would be the perfect day to work on my Scrapbook Journal so perhaps a new post will be coming soon... no promises but possible.
