Ok, a cold morning like this deserves 1) heat pushed up one notch; 2) plate of French toast with syrup; and 3) a BIG HOT cup of coffee - the real stuff!
Kept checking the pond area last night after dark, hoping to see what it is that gets in there, but no visitor last night, and no watery paw prints when I got up this morning. So, I know my big fella in there is safe for another day at least. Son and DIL had stopped over yesterday afternoon and he spied him half in and half out of the water - in the sun. I walked out and had a look/see - he's a big guy, surprised I hadn't seen him during the summer months.
My son brought over a stuffed cabbage - he had made cabbage soup too, but saved the outside leaves to stuff. Love them but never make them any more, too much work for just one person. S&S has them at their deli, and their passable when you have the craving for one.
Congratulations, Rama on the seat cushion. No one but you will know about the edge that didn't fit quite right. Keep it to yourself. Just think how good you'll feel when someone says, "Oh, I love that bench cushion," and you can reply, "Thanks. I made it myself" !
Last night was RHNJ, Hats, so that took precedence for me - want to see who really is/was behind the rumors started about the family. SS called during it, and we gabbed, so caught part of it, but there will be a rerun of that episode before the final one coming up next week.
I've gotten up nursing a slight across your forehead type of headache for 3 days now - nose a little stuffy, I think it must be allergies. Could be partly the smell of the ceiling paint too, I suppose. Kept the window open during the day, but today i'll be in there with some serious, pain in the neck removal and wipe down of the books. Want to get at least one side of the room completely back to normal, including moving the kid desks back in, out of this room where I moved them before his work.
No time like the present to hop in that shower, throw a wash in, and get started. Have a good one everyone.
