One of those ‘nothing very much happened’ days… slept late, fruit salad for brekky (much whipped cream and semi-sweet chocolate was involved), took AAH to get a pair of jazz dance shoes, then to paint store to choose paint for her room [red! yikes… she’ll see red all the time!] and since there was a pet store next door, ducked in there to buy Polly some ant eggs for her gourmet pleasure [yes, you read that right]. And for our gourmet pleasure – some cake and pastries were picked up at the bakery on the way home. After which coffee/tea were brewed and pastries imbibed until I could no longer procrastinate and had to sit my butt down at the computer to try to finish an assignment I have promised to deliver bright and early Monday morning. Which demands being worked on at the weekend because I spend TOO MUCH DAMN TIME READING BLOGS AND WRITING WEATHER REPORTS during proper working hours.
Bad, bad YT.
JEEZ, HIRE A TRANSLATOR, OK?!

TODAY’S WEATHER WAS…
A brief respite from too damn freezing cold. Current temps are around 2° C (36.5 F) and when EPI and I went for our little hike around the golf course it actually rained on us. The sun came up at 10.36 and set at 16.43. Getting long! Er. Long-er.
