Friday ‘fun’.

Posted on
Triple therapy – wine, knitting and my garden. (An old pic, but you get the idea…)

The cat is back!

I’m hoping that we are done with the vet now (nothing against the vet, she’s awesome!), and I’m hoping there will be constant improvement and healing for the next few weeks. I wonder how many of his nine lives our Roomys (Ice cream) have used up now?

It is a cool, windy day here. It was supposed to be hot, but I’ll be the last one to complain about the wrong prediction! This steady cooling down, albeit with a spike of heat here and there, is heaven to me. I’ll live happily in a place where the temperature never goes below 0°, and never above 28° (Celsius, of course!)

My little table painting project bummed out completely. The guy at the hardware store obviously gave me the wrong undercoat to use. I did the undercoat, and waited the appropriate time for it to dry. Then I started painting – three layers, and waiting patiently in between for every layer to dry. It was looking good, just needed a soft sanding to be perfect. And that is where the pawpaw hit the fan… As I sanded, the paint started coming of, and I could peel it off in big plastic sheets!!! So I ‘peeled’ the whole table. And now I have to start all over again. Aaaaaarrrrggghhhhh…. :/

To make it usable for the guests this weekend, I put a tablecloth on the table with a plant on top. You’ve just got to love life’s little curve balls….

Fortunately, it is Friday afternoon now, and in a couple of hours I can pour myself a cold glass of fabulous South African wine, put my feet up, and start enjoying the weekend. Bliss. 🙂
