My Week so Far!
The temperature went down to -10C last night. Bitterly cold this morning. The laundry that I hung out on the line yesterday afternoon and failed to bring in has frozen solid. The sky is clear so looks like it will be a lovely day though maybe a wee bit chilly.
Himself has two weeks of his holiday gone already. It never ceases to amaze me how fast time goes. It's the curse of old age. Laurie was here for four days and that was wonderful. We had a few glasses of wine and a few laughs that's for sure.
Yesterday when I was taking the laundry to the clothes line, I tripped on something and went sprawling across the ground. I heard what sounded like branches breaking over in the woods and was wondering if I could get myself up fast enough to flee. lol. Still a chance of a bear coming though and wouldn't want to be in the way. I'm a little stiff this morning particularly the shoulder and arm.
A few days ago I hauled the ladder in the house as I wanted to reach the boxes of holiday decorations that were stored on top of the linen closet. Too high to reach on a chair. So there I am up high on the ladder with a fair size box in my arms and trying to figure out a way to get down. I do sometimes get myself into predicaments. I had visions of ending up on the floor with a box of Xmas items on top of me with all the cats staring down at me from the bed. I finally did manage to get the three boxes down with very slow movements. I thought the tree lights were there but they weren't. I've been mulling over every since where I could have put them.
So, that's been my week so far. Here's a few pictures of two of the cats.
