Oh, what a wonderful afternoon and evening! So much sunshine.

Today was grocery day, picking up an online order I placed with Walmart last week. Trepidation loomed until I decided to let it go, asking my angels for help, and it helped. Everything went smoothly.
No contact with anyone, opened the hatch door, groceries were placed inside and we were on our way.

I placed an online order with the IGA last week as well, before the Walmart one actually, but there was a hiccup with the system on check out. There’s a charge pending on the credit card but I didn’t receive a confirmation. I’ve been in touch with the local store to no avail, and the parent company, also to no avail. So, I’ll know if it’s a go tomorrow morning if I receive an email confirming my order is ready for pickup or they call with substitutions…

On a happier note, we went for a walk around the yard and picked up garbage. You’d be amazed at the crap that lands on our lawn throughout the year. The cigarette butts alone could fill a garbage bag. And they are thrown out of windows as the cars zip by.

Snow is melting fast in the yard, making it easier to walk around. We ventured down to the river and watched the geese and ducks on the ice.

Spring was in the air today!

A quiet rainy day. Did a little writing, a little bird watching, tv watching, and made changes to my family tree book. Going to make a list tomorrow of things I’d like to accomplish this week and see how that goes. Should be good as long as I stay away from Netflix for a while. 😉

It was a rainy day. A cold rainy day. A good day to stay in and trim the catnip plant. Ashes was sleeping on my bed and Dukes was sleeping somewhere. Perfect…no cats to get in the way.

Step one: put the dried catnip away to make room for fresh catnip to dry.

Ashes could smell the catnip from my bedroom and came out to investigate, followed shortly after by Dukes. I rubbed some dried catnip on their favourite toys to keep them occupied while I trimmed the plant…

Quite the challenge keeping them off the table where I was working but I managed.
