It has been a quiet weekend for me. I do believe I am all caught up reading everyone's blogs! I have added a couple new ones to my blogroll on my main page as I had a couple of newcomers visit my blog.
I am a procrastinator! I put off all day yesterday going into the city for groceries, cat supplies, and stuff from Lowe's. So I finally got my shower and got ready and took off last night about 7:30. (I would rather shop at night anyhow!) I took some trash to the dumpsters and met a friend who lives on that end of the street, and we stood there and chatted for about an hour! This retired couple has only been here for a year. They pulled into their parking space just as I was getting my trash out of my trunk, and she walked down to say hi. Well, after we had been talking probably a half hour or so, her hubby came out to the end of their sidewalk to see if she was okay! LOL We waved at him, he waved back, and then he went back inside. He knows how we talk when we get together! They are such a lovely couple. They, too, love cats and have two of their own. I finally got home around 10pm and got my car unloaded....and boy, was it humid! We had a short rain shower while I was getting ready to go, and it was like a sauna when I opened the door to leave! By the time I got things put away and all the cats fed and scooped and ready for bed, it was 1am! Typical shopping night for me!
Today my daughter came to take my trash for me, so I fixed us a quick supper of leftovers...roast beef, etc. When she called and said she was coming over, I hurried and mixed up a carrot cake and some cream cheese icing! It was soooooo good!!!! She has put her 2-week notice in at work as she has accepted a new position in another city about 25 miles from here. She is a CPA and has a resume I can't even understand! She is involved in SEC reporting and all that stuff I don't do! LOL I always hate to see her leave, even though she only lives 4 miles from me! I get to see her during the week when I am in the city if I choose to go by her home that evening. Looks like this week is kitty checkup week for both of her cats, so I will be busy a couple of days taking them in. Both of her cats are rescues (by me), and she loves them dearly. "Buster" and "Sweet Pea." Buster has been losing weight and is the brother to my Cleo and Daphy, so he could be diabetic now, too. I hope to get him an appointment for tomorrow so he can be checked out thoroughly, complete with bloodwork. We worry over them just as we would if they were children.
Not much of a weekend, but it was a quiet one for me, and I kind of like it that way. My phone rings all hours of the day and night with the business, so that is enough excitement for this ole gal! LOL
Oh, my dear blogging friends...Lyle from On the Road Again with Lyle will be posting again very soon! They have returned to their home in AZ, and he is working on his next post. So I will be sure to let you know when he publishes it!
I'll be posting my strawberry cheesecake recipe tomorrow, complete with photos! So be sure to stop back! You won't be sorry!!!
