It is a gray and dreary day outside. Cold too. It’s been colder this winter than any winter I recall since moving here nearly 10 years ago. There is virtually no wind this morning, which is a bit unusual.
I’ve fed the babies and dispensed medication. Charlie has decided not to eat his pill pocket treats with his medication in it. So I am forced to ram it down his throat. I just hate this, but I’ve tried those pill pusher things and he manages to evade the pills no matter what I do.
I’ve tried ordering different flavors of pill pockets, but he still doesn’t want them. So though it makes him mad, and sometimes I cry while I’m doing it, I do what I have to to get the job done.
However in the evening before we go to bed he will actually eat the pill pocket with his medication in it. I can’t figure out why he will take it then but not during the day.
Shopping For Seeds:
Yesterday I shopped online for seeds at Renee’s Heirloom Seeds and Johnny’s Seeds. I would just order everything from Renee’s, but she doesn’t have those beautiful gold zinnias that Johnny’s has that I so love.
I kept things in my online carts and will probably switch things up before I actually order. Because I like to think about things and look at my pots outside to figure out what all I need before I actually place the order.
I did get some chores done. The refrigerator is sorted out. And the one closet where I keep my clothing, shoes and most everything else has been cleaned out.
Household Chores To Tick Off My List:
At the back on the outer wall of the closet I saw either mildew or mold. It was dry to the touch. I made sure not to shove anything back against it and will have to get Clorox.
Then I got my granny cart out and wheeled about five heavy loads down to the dumpster. Since much of it was really stuff someone could use, I stacked those things outside the dumpster in full view of the road so someone would see it.
I always feel better after I get these jobs done. You can’t live in a one bedroom apartment and not have to de-clutter and get rid of things fairly often. At least I can’t.
What I’m Listening To:
I am listening to Paul Cardell. It is a 2 CD set.
Today I might start in on the other bedroom closet where Ivy’s litter box is. There isn’t as much to be done in there.
I only have one more episode of Apple Tree Yard to watch tonight. Then I’ll have to find something else to watch for my one hour of TV each evening, because I don’t turn the TV on during the day.
I was loving DCI Banks and thought there were more episodes. But then I saw I’d reached the end and felt a bit sad. It’s like saying goodbye to an old friend when you’ve been watching a show’s series for months.
And two token photos of the babies. They’re having their morning nap right now so I won’t disturb them to take extra photos.
When Ivy closes her eyes and is sleeping you can’t even tell that she has eyes.
Ivy sure likes a soft spot to take a nap. And of course I make sure I provide those soft spots for both of them.
Switching To A Faster Higher Performance Theme:
Oh, one more thing. Last month I had my tech guy switch the platform I was on to a theme that is supposed to be much faster.
Have you seen any change in the last month or so?
I usually do a lot of stuff for my blog myself. But this was beyond my knowledge, so I paid him to do it for me. Of course I want a website with higher performance and that loads faster for readers.
