It sure is something to sing about - it's Winter Solstice Caturday!!! The shortest day of the year!!! Mum and I celebrated by sleeping in late til a very civilised 9am and she got to finish her library book that she had been a bit stuck reading. Some chores and lazing about were done. Mum got ready and went into town for a wander. She met some friends, saw a movie and ate healthy Thai chicken noodle soup for dinner. She arrived at the bus stop and must have just missed a bus, so had an hour wait for the next one, so entertained herself with a couple of episodes of podcasts of stuff you missed in history class.
A nice day out she said. Still she was glad to get home to me, in time to give me a late fancy feast, to fluff the pillows and make the bed. An episode of Antiques Roadshow and a little nibble of something naughty, then us ladies are off to get us some beauty sleep.
So as the solstice is today, every day from now we should gain a few more seconds of sunlight and spring doesn't feel so far away. Of course, as often is the way the worst of the winter weather is still to come. We are prepared though.
Oh - and in case you are wondering. Mum loved sleeping on her new pillow last night, it was like sleeping on a cloud. She did feel guilty though, for as her friend Miss Pia pointed out, many of those ducks and geese are not treated well in order to get mum a new feather and down pillow. That makes mum sad. She was hoping the feathers were ones that just drifted off some happy and contented plump birds. Oh dear.
Hope you all enjoy your Caturday - have fun, get some treats.
