Have a friend coming by early tomorrow to have coffee and chat. My house is a wreck. Hers never is and I am loathe to have her come, but I already said yes. lol Not that she will care, but I care. (I know you know what I mean...) I didn't have time to do any kind of householding today...was out of here at 10 AM to lunch with my niece and sister-in-law, and went from there straight to the office to volunteer a 4 hour shift. Rushed home from there to get here and make supper for the Irishman...a simple supper of chili/cheese and onion omelets and toast. (Since I had made a pot of chili yesterday). I swept the wood floors and took the glass off the dining room chandelier (dust bunnies hanging from it--Criminey!! Where does all this dust come from ????) and washed them and put them back up. Vacuumed the furnace filter (because it was time). Cleaned the dining room table and put a new clean tablecloth and napkins on it. Dusted. Early in the morning I will vacuum the floors and furniture and then that's all I'll be able to get done probably. She's coming at like 9 o'clock. I'm going to have coffee and some muffins in the oven. I'll distract her with food. LOL
Tomorrow afternoon I will be waiting for a furniture delivery for my neighbors...the company called me today and said between 1 and 5.
I can hear the Barred Owls out there going crazy tonight. We have a LOT of owls around here, and they call to each other across great distances. Drives the chickens and the cats crazy. Thought I heard a cat wanting in, but not hearing it now. 2 of the 4 cats are in the house already. The big Russian Blue, PoPo is doing better with his ruptured eardrum. The antibiotics are all gone, and I think tomorrow I will call the vet about getting more. He is walking with his head cocked at a goofy angle almost all the time...I think maybe it relives the pressure or something. He is clumsy and off balance, and I expect he will be until that eardrum heals. I promise you, he is milking all the extra affection and cat treats for all he's worth.
Thursday I'll be picking up the woman who's going to help me clean and then Friday I am going to meet my old neighbor for lunch and see her new house. I think the move has been really hard on them after all, so I shall go and spread a little pixie dust...and hold her hand and pray that things will get a little easier soon.
I'm sleepy now, so off to bed I go. 6 AM comes a might early and I will need every minute I can get to make myself and my house presentable. Wish me luck. :)
