Good Sunday morning,
Another beautiful day. Football weather, leaf raking weather, and knitting weather. Took my yarn out yesterday afternoon, watched some "Flip this House" episodes, and made good headway on another square. Cheerio was content to have me in the same room for a period of time, and curled up in the corner of the couch and slept the afternoon away.
Sort of a final note on the kitchen island/basket - yesterday's day in the middle of the yard in the sun, seems to have bleached both the color from a wet looking reed down to a tan rattan, and the odor from a chemical smell down to an acceptable wicker basket odor. Still airing out the cabinet itself, best I can in the house, but that too seems more like a new piece of furniture smell. It's a keeper.
Amazed that the flyless bird still exists out there. See him come down the middle of the yard, from the back, stopping here and there pecking in the grass for what he and the other birds seem to find there, and then down to under the feeder for the fallout seed - back up again the same way. It's really extraordinary that that bird on foot and Harry or Fluff haven't met up at the same time. Some mornings they're here, and some mornings he's here. So far their paths haven't crossed.
Bought a beautiful fat, black, eggplant when I shopped this week, and will make eggplant parm today. I'd rather have that than lasagna. No problem getting that eaten up, usually only one serving left to put in the freezer by the time I stop reheating pieces for suppers.
Time to put the coffee on and catch the beginning, at least, of Sunday Morning to see what segments they have scheduled today. Think of you, Icer, every time I tune in, and picture you and your honey watching too. Have a good day everyone.
