First off, still no grandchild. When I talked to D earlier today, she mentioned she cleaned the b/f's house today. Perhaps she is finally nesting. It would be nice if she'd show up here and clean up her room. (Sheesh, she's 35 years old and I'm still nagging her to clean her room).
She wasn't the only one who was bit by the cleaning bug. I got some of my housework done on Friday, but Saturday was a write-off. I lazed around, reading, playing on the computer, and watching television for most of the day. This morning, though I woke up after a great night's sleep, and got busy.
By lunchtime, I had washed the kitchen, front foyer, and bathroom floors, vacuumed the living room and hallway, scrubbed down the bathroom fixtures, wiped down the kitchen cabinet doors, folded the laundry, dusted, gathered up the garbage and took it out to the bin, and cleared out the television cabinet. Phew...it makes me tired just to list it all.
I even ventured into the baby's room and did a quick tidy in there. I organized the closet, put away boxes of diapers, picked up some paper and bags from the shower, and got the bassinet set up. D is planning to have the baby sleep in her room for the first while so had picked up a second-hand bassinet. I'm not sure where she plans to have him sleep as her room is a disaster and I'll be damned if I'm going to clean it up for her.
Okay, enough crankiness.
No photos but we seem to have a cat living in our backyard. We're not sure if he lives nearby and just visits, or if he's living under the deck. My son spotted him a day or so ago and pointed him out to me today. He/she (since we haven't gotten that close) is a long haired gray and white cat, very skittish, and quite large...but that might be the fur. We put out some dry food for him just in case. I called the Humane Society to see if they would trap him. They won't, as they don't deal with cats "running at large". They told me if we can trap him in a shed or the garage they will come pick him/her up. We'll keep an eye out and move the food closer to one of the sheds. Hopefully he's just visiting and has a home to go to, but based on what we've seen I doubt it.
I had wondered that I haven't seen any bunnies in the yard for awhile. It makes me wonder how long the cat has been around. Or maybe they've found somewhere else to hang out.
Thankfully it hasn't been very cold, though was cooler today than it has been for awhile. We got a skiff of snow, just enough to cover the driveway. With the sunshine it is pretty much gone again.
I've been watching the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Canadian Women's curling most of the weekend. Tonight is the final; the skip of the Manitoba team is from Saskatchewan so, of course, I'm rooting for them. My brother called, he and his children are cheering for Ontario because they have Deadpool on their sweaters. I had to ask what that was....
Just as well I'm watching curling and not the Oscars. I wouldn't have a clue what was going on.
Have a great week everyone!
