It has been such a lazy day. I stayed in my jammies til early afternoon! I love days when I get to do that...they are too rare.
I'm out of quick and easy breakfast foods (cereal!) so I tied on my festive Hoot-n-Annie apron...
and whipped up some old fashioned baking powder biscuits. There's something so satisfying about kneading dough and rolling it out to create something so tasty!
Later I looked through some of my old childhood books: Socks, Jo's Boys and Nancy Drew...
I adore the old illustrations in these books!
I managed to get a lot done this weekend. My sister came for a short visit yesterday...so we got to spend some much needed time together. I hate how my whole family is so spread out. It doesn't seem right that I can't walk in the next room and see my sister any time I want. Being an adult isn't all that it's cracked up to be!
I spent several hours last night cleaning my messy bedroom. This is something I've put off for many many months! Not a pretty sight, I can tell you! I think I've tamed the savage beast for now. Whew!
Something really sad happened yesterday. I lost my little rat girl Petunia. She'd been sick for about a week or so...she had a gross infection that did her in despite antibiotics. She's finally at rest now and no longer in pain, thank goodness. Her sister, Violet, has been acting very sad all day. I don't think she likes being alone. Poor girl. :(
This is the hardest part of loving animals. Of loving any living creature, really.
