Here we are, almost up to date! A 3 weeker, until next week when I am back to normality and a weekly post.
7th – 13th April
Planning for a ukulele class I’m teaching and found this great and easy chart for basic chords. Work day at the weekend at Kirkland Marina, the weather was awful and the event was cancelled 2 hours early because of high winds. Coffee coffee, this is the same place as I am currently sat. I love that they use real mugs, and the heart is a wonderful touch. I joined a soccer club, I am awful, today was the first game and I was shite…I fell over without the ball anywhere near me and Superman’d on the astroturf. By the way, that stuff HURTS! Then I stopped the ball, and it left this bruise impression. Yes, that is the imprint of the ball. I feel sorry for the gals in my team…I really am awful. I am a Brit who is dreadful at soccer, who also doesn’t support any soccer team.
We have another foster cat, called Forest, she is very shy and 10 years old. We had her over 2 weeks and unfortunately she isn’t ready to be adopted out. She is going to Feral Care in Bothell. This was her first few days with us.
Bookclub book…I highly recommend you read this book! Plus it’s set in Seattle, which is pretty cool.
14th – 20th April
Chinese for dinner, a close up of nosy Marie’s face. Finally got my guitars up on the wall including my new-to-me Taylor mini….it sounds so good! I had help from a personal organizer to sort out our spare/guest/den/office room. I have a desk, I can use my desk and I know where everything is and it makes productive sense. Marie was resting next to me in the couch when Max decided to “play” nope…just nope, she only plays on her terms.
I am making a baby blanket for a friend, but as I have until August and it doesn’t need to go in the post, this is my “complete at work so I take a break” blanket. There was sunshine so I took myself out for 20 minutes.
Forest the foster cat doesn’t leave from under the bed. She purrs but is so nervous and shy still.
21st – 27th April
We have been allocated an allotment and this makes me very happy. We’ve dug it over, fed it and now need to buy so food! I visited St Edward’s Park, took a photo of the gloomy grey by the lake….looks like the UK 😀 I got happy mail from a friend, a postcard about having tea and biscuits.
We have given Forest back, and I realized we had no first aid supplies. Hubster was bitten and scratch very badly, she was so scared at being picked up to go into the cat bag. 😢
A family I work with kindly gave me some chocolates which look like galaxies. The photo which looks like marbles!
I woke up extra early as in 5am, I nanny in the mornings but usually wake around 6am. At that time there isn’t often a cat in sight, but at 5am this is how they sleep! Flowers. So beautiful, shame they aren’t mine.
