Terrible night's sleep, or lack of one, so didn't get up until 8:00. It's ridiculous that one cup of caffeine in the morning can keep me from steady sleep at night. There definitely is a difference when I have that instead of decaf tho. Gives me a nice boost in the morning to get all I want done, but 3 nights of little sleep takes its toll too, so back to decaf this morning.
Got a nice visit from Little Miss Fluffy last night. She hasn't come up here in over a year, at least not during daylight hours so that I have seen her. Think she and Harry have something worked out. They visit Cat Lady's about the same time each day, she for her warmed milk at night. Harry appeared at supper here yesterday and I gave him some kibble. He only ate a little and walked away. About an hour later when I was going to the door to bring the dish in to wash, ambling up the walk came beautiful little delicate Miss Fluffy Short Legs. I had to back up out of her view, she's very skiddish. Sure enough, he had left it for her, and she finished it off.
Your plans of things to do with your Mom, sound great, Kargiver. I always enjoyed putting up tomatoes, peaches (we had 2 trees), with my mother. Still see in my mind's eye us standing side by side at the stove, and me having her double check to be sure I had done the seal on the jars right. We tried making the pickles from my Great Aunt's recipe, well recipe of sorts, "a handful of this, a pinch of that, about half a handful of the other", but what a poor result we got compared to her delicious ones, a jar of which we always came home from Maine with.
I am famished this morning. Will make some choc chip pancakes and a cup of DECAF coffee to go with. Going out this morning. Plans with my cousin for tomorrow have been cancelled. A friend of her niece's is coming to town and she wants to be included in the visit with her. So, other than an appt. Friday, a slow week for me.
Hope you all have a good day.
