Mum went out this afternoon for a couple of hours. As she left I was napping like this and I was like this when she got home. Mum wanted to get outside for some fresh air and enjoy the sunshine, as we have more rain forecast for the week ahead.
Mum came home and napped next to me. She pretended to read her book, but lately that seems to send her off to sleep.
By the way mums love for me far outweighs the hatred she has for my plastic bag that she has put up with for two months of being on her bed.
Mum has figured out that she has no reason to set an alarm clock between now and the 23rd of December, as she is on shift work between now and then. So she had been enjoying sleeping in. She is also taking a news break until the New Year. No watching the evening news on the television and only checking her phone a couple of times a year. She already feels a bit more relaxed after two days. A good way to move into holiday mode.
She put batteries into lights and unwrapped some Christmas decorations today. She has not gone overboard, just some glowing lights and Santas.
I helped her do chores today, although I hid from the vacuum cleaner. then I napped while mum walked to the library and got some spicy noodles for her dinner. She was happy- raspberries are back for sale. Tonight a movie on the couch for her and snuggles for me.
We hope you have a nice Caturday and do something fun.
Mum is glad that she rushed into town straight after work to do some jobs. It was a bit cloudy, but the by the time she got home the wind picked up and has being blowing like crazy outside. Now it has cooled down and is pouring. Poor mum is on call tonight, and she wonders if she has to go out in the bad weather. Luckily work pays for a taxi to and from work, so she won't get too wet. We wonder if we will get a couple of sunny days in a row? Time to turn the on call phone on. Nite nite.
All the sheets and covers got cleaned atlast today and the bed is now freshly made. No vomiting today so mum gave me lots of pats and a feast for dinner. She is going to pull out the nutribullet and blitz up some fruit for her dessert.
Today was so muggy and hot, mum sweated out a swimming pool today. She got up early go meet friends to go to a local fair. They try go go early before the pram/dog to people ratio gets to high.
Stormy weather was due, so mum did a couple of quick chores and got home just as thunder and rain started. The good thing was that the storm moved away from the city so we were okay.
I gobbled down my dinner tonight. So it came up again quickly, and I managed to soak through all 3 of the quilts on the bed. This us one if the reasons that we need dark bedding on the bed. So mum spent the rest of Sunday night cleaning, soaking and scrubbing the bedding.
Mum put some bread out for the birds this morning so I had to come and sit outside and watch. She has been optimistic and getting some washing out on the line. The fridge has been cleaned, dishes are soaking and she just has to vacuum the carpet and then she will sit and watch something on the box before she has to think about heading to work.
Mum and I are over the drizzly cool weather. Summer starts in the next couple of weeks and we have the heater on tonight. I don't want to go outside as the garden is damp and cold. Mum is trying to make the most of it, reading and relaxing.
She is back on the afternoon shifts for the rest if the week. She has made chicken and vegetables for dinner tonight and a couple if dinners to take to work. she has planned a shopping list and a chore list do that she gets a couple if things done with the mornings she has at home.
Time to put the electric blanket and snuggle up on the bed with mum. Night night.
Maybe it is not the best view in the world, but you can see I did not get a full Brazilian for the summer, just a slight trim. Anyway I was giving mum a happy greeting cause she came home. She rushed around all day. She did washing this morning and vacuumed the carpets and then went and met a bestie for a walk and then some nibbles.
The real reason I was pleased to see mum - I needed my bag back on the bed!!!
Oh and mums middle aged lady moment. She woke up at 3am as she heard a big cat fight outside. she got up to look out the window, and put a dressing gown on and went out into the backyard. She heard the cats do a final hiss. She stood outside for 5 minutes and came back to bed. Then she realized that I was in the bedroom - it wasn't me fighting. I was snoozing!!!🐈
