Good Sunday morning,
Sipping my coffee and eating a piece of toast. Handsome Harry's chicken feast was sitting in the fridge, so I gave it to Cheerio this morning. No sooner gone than whose little white feet did I spy under the bush? Opened up the fish combo I had bought for him but he turned up his nose at that and kept telling me, "No, chicken, it's the chicken I like"! I've left the dish out there and he's gone back under the bush to watch for a tastier chickadee.
Didn't get to GS's game yesterday, but did go over in the a.m. to give my DIL her presents. She absolutely loved the sweater thingie, tried it on right over her pjs and said the designer had been on a TV show last week. (I confess I didn't even know it was a designer name!) My GD took the birthday towel and put it right up on the oven door bar, so I lucked out with my choices. Much more pleasure when you're able to find just the right things, rather than give a gift card, to me anyway. They had had a birthday party dinner the night before with a dozen friends in a Boston restaurant so she's had a "wonderful 35th (chuckle, chuckle) birthday", as her Mom said.
Winter, I found GS's team does play away games too, those are during the week. If I understood him right, yesterday was the last at home game. He loves it, was out shooting baskets when I got there.
2:30 this morning I had beautiful visitors, one I think an expectant mom - 3, maybe 4 deer in the backyard, the "to be Mom" as close as my birdfeeder. One in the middle of the yard probably saw me as I moved into the kitchen, because she laid right down. Her Mom taught her well.
Tree was deflocked yesterday, now the part I hate of lugging all those boxes and bags, which I seem to have more of this year, upstairs. Some years I do a better more compact job of packing everything up, I guess.
Hope everyone has a nice relaxing Sunday. Mm, how was your New Year's Eve trip?
