Oh for a cat's life! I think the daily list of activities would look something like this: Wake up, eat, sleep, play, sleep, sleep, play, sleep, eat, play, sleep, sleep, play, sleep. Rough life! We should all be so pampered!
So I fed the cats before leaving for the Burgh Saturday morning, and as I often have to do, I shut Samantha in the powder room with her food so she wouldn't eat the boys' food and they wouldn't eat hers. She has a special food for cats with urinary problems. When we got home Sunday evening, I heard a kitty cry and lo and behold, there was poor Samantha still shut in the powder room with no food or water. She didn't even pee in there--she's such a little lady! I felt a major surge of maternal guilt and I apologize to her everytime I see her! She seems to hold no ill will though as she still crawls in my lap for love!
Jeremy performed quite well on his recital. It was a joint recital with a senior who studies with the same trumpet teacher. Afterwards, we went to a new restaurant on the South Side called the Double Wide Grill which is in a converted gas station. It was very cleverly done and the menu is good. They have a lot of tables outside since the weather is getting nice and they open the doors to the bays so the whole thing is open. It was a very pleasant evening. I was surprised as to who neat Bird's house was. I mean, think about it! Three fraternity brothers in a house can make for a real mess, but it was surprisingly neat--except his room which was basically a disaster area. Fortunately he's up in the third floor so no one sees that!
I finished a chemo cap while waiting for J's recital to begin.
This is the Eyelet Lace Elegance Hat by Kody May. She designs wonderful hats. Her pattern is flat knit and I altered it to knit it in the round. I used Berroco Cotton Twist since they don't want wool in chemo caps! I hope to knock off one more of her designs before Wednesday so I can turn it into our knitting club to be distributed to cancer patients.
Random thought--What is it about cats and boxes? Whenever I throw a box on the floor to be recycled, someone gets in it. The box can be half the size of the cat, and someone still tries!
It's spring break, and while I would love to spend it finishing odd projects, I have to bite the bullet and clean. Yuck! Cleaning house is the single most unappealing activity I can think of! I like the way it feels afterwards, but I just don't want to be the one who has to do it! Obviously, there are no volunteers around here, so by default, I get to indulge myself in such pleasures as dusting, vaccuuming and washing floors! Goody! Gotta go!
