Those cats wake my up entirely too early.
Morgaine and Mako are very anxious to be fed. Mutz chooses to stay in bed.
I decide to go back to bed until a more reasonable hour.
That'll do, I guess...
Mako is very excited to see me awake.
He follows me into the bathroom and attempts to scare Morgaine away through the door. It doesn't work.
Here's my before shower/contacts/mascara picture.
And here's the after.
We named him Mako because he bites. Like a shark.
I make some tea. Morgaine supervises.
I water my houseplants while my tea steeps.
I take my tea and my laptop outside to the 2nd floor porch. I like to spend my Saturday mornings out there; it is very peaceful.
I look down at the backyard and realize I should probably weed the patio at some point.
I hear Chris moving around inside and go downstairs to find him. Mutz finally makes an appearance - he wants to drink my tea.
Chris is making a sandwich. I try to explain that this is not breakfast food, but he does not listen.
I wash the dishes while he eats his "breakfast".
We make up a shopping list for our upcoming picnic.
My mum calls to tell me that she and my sister will soon be coming to pick my up.
I (finally) get dressed and go outside to wait for them.
Chris considers putting the grill together while I am gone, but decides against it.
My mum and sister finally arrive and we head off.
Our first stop is the Animal Rescue League so my mum can donate blood.
Kylie and I are not nearly so adventurous. We wait outside.
It takes a very long time to donate blood, apparently.
We finally reach our destination - Art on the Avenue!
We spend most of our time in the adorable little shops.
It is very, very hot. We stop for a drink.
They were selling blocks of the street to paint, but we were far too hot and tired to participate.
Time check driving home.
When I get home, Chris and I go upstairs to read. The bedroom is the only air conditioned room. I am reading Emma, Chris is reading The Secret History.
Mako and Mutz decide to join us.
Mutz is very intrusive.
I fall asleep before long. When I wake up, it has gotten very late.
The cats demand their dinner. They are messy eaters.
Mutz does not approve of my nap.
I go outside to water my plants.
I also pull the weeds from the patio.
When I am done in the yard, we head over to the Apple Dumpling Festival.
It is difficult to find a parking space.
What a nice sunset.
We find my sister and her boyfriend, Mike.
We don't go on any rides, we just eat a lot of unhealthy food.
A terrible picture of our apple dumpling with ice cream. Trust me, it was delicious.
We stop at a gas station on the way home...
...for powerball tickets.
When I get home, I go up to my office to check the internet.
I make invitations for the aforementioned picnic.
I go downstairs to get some water and some treats for Morgaine.
I take my contacts out so I can go to bed.
Thank goodness for air conditioning!
We read a little bit more before going to sleep.
Midnight is time for sleep because I am an old person.
