Sunday Evening

Well, my four days off are over.  No,no,no !!! I don't want to go back to work.   Saturday I didn't leave the property but today I decided to venture out.  First I took Gabi ( my smooched face cat) to Petco to get her "nails" done.  She keeps sticking to to the sofa, rug, etc because her claws are so long.  I called them and they said it was $8.00 to trim them.  I thought that was a good price, since I've never done that and I would be afraid I'd hurt her if I tried.  So I left her with the nice groomer lady and went off to Safeway for a few groceries and to fill up my gas tank ($2.04 a gallon).   When I went back to get her, the lady said she was very co-operative and remarked about how cute she was.  So then I took her home and got her some treats and went to Home Depot.  I wanted to get some of those ornamental cabbage plants that look so nice right now.  But all they had in was a new batch of Primroses.  So I got 8 (79 cents each) in different colors to plant in those dreary, empty hanging baskets and the planters on my porch.  I think I may get some more....I still have some empty pots and they certainly bring a nice touch of color to the dreary landscape. 

I watched a great movie tonight.  It was called "Mrs Brown" and was about Queen Victoria after Prince Albert died.  Judy Dench did a wonderful job playing the role of the Queen. 

I wanted to share a website with you.  Christmas is over but it's still winter and snowflakes are a winter thing.  So check this out and let me know what you think.

Well, my alarm is set for 4:45am so I'm going to submit my Avon order and then start thinking about heading down the hall with my book and my kitty.  I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend, until next time....Linda

Sounds like you'll have to be dragged screaming into work, I know the feeling!! I loved Mrs Brown too, Judi Dench is a great actress and Billy Conolly was good as well. Gabi was very good wasn't she, I always cut my two cats nails myself, they stay quite still for me.......probably frightened I'll chop their toes off!! Jeannette.

Gabi was a good girl....now she won't get caught up on the sofa or rug.  The plants will look lovely when they come out - and all the colours will brighten up your porch....Queen Victoria was a brilliant film and Judy Dench played the part well.   I enjoyed popularfront.com/snowdays..Never thought about it snowing somewhere all year round......enjoyed it thanks for the link.....Take care...Ally

I get so nervous trimming my dogs nails...I do it but I hate it.  8 bucks sounds like a much better deal!
