DITL - January 7, 2017

Today is January 7, 2017, Today I am 55 years old.




Morning ablutions


My morning helper, meet Gracie.


Snowy waiting for her morning treats.


Another morning helper, Duchess wants morning cuddles. I pet her while booting the computer.


Another cat waiting for breakfast, This is Tuna.


This is Boy, he waits in his bowl for his morning treats.


I check outside for the outdoor cats, nobody here yet this morning.

That's a heated pad for them to sit on in the winter. Just so you know, they are not my cats, but I have a heated pad and water bowl for them and I feed them. I don't know who they belong to, if anyone, they hang out on my porch in all weather. On particularly cold nights I bring them into my basement because even 50 degrees is warmer than zero. They may be strays, they may have neglectful owners, I don't know, but I take care of them when they are here.

I prep the plates and cat food for everyone.


Then my own breakfast.


My husband wrapped my birthday gifts in Christmas paper.


Lego and a hard to find, rare, Trivial Pursuit Disney edition.


Ah, there's the Captain, He gets fed.


We head out to do a few errands before the snow starts.


Litter


Treats


Next Stop


Decisions...


Decisions...


Decisions...


I opt for a Black Forest cupcake, a triple chocolate cupcake, and a dozen of my favorite macaroons. My husband gets a peanut butter brownie.


I eat the Black Forest cupcake when I get home, while reading facebook.


It's starting to snow.


Snowy wants attention.


I read the paper.


Heat up some leftover mac-n-cheese for lunch.


The mail brings a package from my Artist friend Heidi. She does awesome artwork with dryer lint. Google it, it's amazing.


Even though it's a weekend and my birthday, I still have work to do. I sort earrings for my next event in February.


Do some inventory paperwork while eating the second cupcake.


Clean up my workbench and assemble some more Lego earrings.




Get dinner in the oven, Mustard Chicken.


Work some more on sorting earrings. (there are a lot to sort, I have over 1000 pairs in inventory right now.)


Box up an Etsy sale for shipping.


Dinner is ready.




The little beggar.


Clean dishes to put away befor ethe dinner dishes can be cleaned up.


Run a load of towels through the wash and dry.




Head upstairs to put on jammies and start the humidifier. Another cat, PeeGee asks if it's time for bed.


Back downstairs to watch some old TV.


Then we put on a fun movie.


Snowy approves.


After the movie, crawl into bed with some reading.


That was my day.
