This is me looking out the window on Friday night. No doors or window are open today, as it is a bit stormy in the windy city. Mum did have some plans to head into town but the weather has put a damper on that. Still mum got up early this morning, had a leisurely shower and then headed off for Saturday morning chores. Coriander, potatoes, broccoli, pumpkin, strawberries, carrots and tomatoes at the market. Mum didn't buy as much as she hoped for the week, as it was pretty wet and she thought the produce would go off. A visit to the library to stock up on more reading material and she dropped in to the French bakery. A fancy almond croissant for Sunday breakfast and a loaf for some soup mum is making for Sunday supper.
Mum then came home to watch a bit of Project Runway. Some of those home made burgers for lunch, while the dishes soak and the washing is done. Then mum is going to get stuck into the rest of the housework. She wants it all done by 3pm then she can sit with me and read her book or watch some tv.
She's not going out tonight either - it's a night in for the ladies of Chez Q. On the menu will be pork chops with mustard potatoes and broccoli for dinner for mum, and a fancy feast for me. Sunday has lots of plans, so mum is happy to have a home day. Enjoy your Caturday!!
PS The storm was over by about 4pm, and it is calm although a touch cool. So I have popped outside for to do my sniffing around the property and mum has the door open while the dinner cooks and the washing dries. We know we shouldn't moan about our piddly storm as so many of our friends have lots of snow at the moment in the Northern hemisphere. Roll on the first day of our summer season tomorrow!!
