Good Tuesday Morning to you!
Have had some beautiful spring days.
Actually keep hoping these clouds would gather up into some good thunderstorms because it is so dry here.
The construction goes on...and the dust clouds hover over them.
The T Stands For Tuesday group always shows what they have been drinking. This time, instead of one of my usual red coffee mugs, I am showing lunch yesterday. A glass of almond milk and a Quorn breaded chicken sandwich with cheese and mayo.
My satchels for the sewing storage arrived days ago...
...and my other birthday gifts I picked out. Pilot Iroshizuku bottle of ink (Kon-Peki), a wide roll of the birds MT washi tape, a Lamy (EF) demonstrator fountain pen, and a Pilot (F) orange demonstrator (I heard they are going to discontinue the orange ones and I've always wanted one--dedicated to my Noodler's Apache Sunset ink).
I did fill the new pens, but I have not worked up to organizing the sewing supplies just yet.
I've been gone (for 2-4 hours) so many times (7 out of 9 days due to packages and recycling bin and not wanting to leave the cat box unscooped for more then two days) that Karma looks concerned and watches me every time I get up out of a chair--LOL! But not until afternoon. She knows I am pretty useless until I thaw out so I never go places in the mornings--ROFL!
So mornings she can relax in the sun.
I am staying home today. From now on I can go over every other day to spend time with Sammy and Annie. Life is good! My dad made it home from the hospital on Saturday--with oxygen this time, so he's happy. I had a video chat with McFamily last night. No pictures yet, though, because they have been so busy. (And I was so tired I forgot I could have at least snapped a picture of the video chat--duh!) They just got back from two days at Mt. Fuji and tomorrow they head for two days in Kyoto. They all looked a bit tired, but they have been up a mountain (next to Fuji, which was fogged over) and on a boat ride and spent many hours on a tour bus--LOL! It was just so good to see them and hear their voices...and get a few Gramma smiles from Ian. :) :)
Gramma is really taking it easy and slowly today. Been watching Netflix's Bloodline...which is like slowly peeling back layers and layers of secrets. The family members are gradually revealed to you little by little...and not always who you first thought them to be. I really enjoy that in a series. These days a good series is like a really-good-long-fat novel. They can take their time...and get to levels with characters you could never reach even in a two or three hour movie. No wonder there are more "movie" actors coming over to various TV/Cable series (Cable seems to be better at it than broadcast TV). They can be layered, meaty, juicy...and patient. I think various series have become my favorite viewing choice.
Anyways, have a wonderful, wonderful day, people!! :) :)
