Odds and a Few Ends #1

I have a whole bunch of various links and things to share with you that have been collecting in my Evernote ‘blog’ notebook, so I’ll be adding a few in every day (or every time I post a blog) until I get the lot cleared.  Most have been from my RSS feeds.

I noticed that I managed to put in two of my favourite LOL Cats twice in the ‘Interesting Links’ section over the course of a few weeks.  And silly enough, one of them was about spotting the kitten with ADD.  That’d be me. She of very poor memory and attention span. 🙂

Life is good. I’m feeling a little better and getting on with stuff. I survived the 8 (or was it 9?) day heatwave. November heatwaves are RARE. Normally the spring weather is just lovely – not too hot or too cold. Still, I got through all of it without any rashes on my face from sweat and eczema, and I also had a lot less sinus/allergy issues so I did well. I actually coped with the heat better than Rod did. However, when we had the one 43c (110f) day on Thursday it stayed hot way past sundown and Friday I was useless. That one day really did knock the wind right out of my sails.  Much better on that front today though.

Anyway, the good stuff is down below in the ‘Interesting Links’ section (Added on 07 Oct 2016 – Sorry, no idea where the ‘Interesting Links section disappeared to when I moved my blog).

Enjoy the Day!

18Jan22 Look at how clean and soft Noble's fur looks.  He scrubs up so nicely.  I've seen this cat come in looking like he'd had a wild night on the town and then later he looks so well groomed you'd think I'd taken him to be brushed and fluffed!  #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram  #2022pad #latergram
23Feb22  This was a screen capture from my Strava account where I'd listed what I did, and it showed my stats down below the photo.  This was a relentless 10 round bike and squat exercise my coach at Dark Horse rowing had come up with.  This was pure torture!  #2022pad  #rowing #darkhorserowing #homegymlife #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse  #recumbentbike #squats
05Feb22  Lunch with Shaun.  Lunch group was cancelled because a member was in hospital so we were on our own this time. Years ago every six  months or so Shaun and I would have lunch together and catch up on all the gossip.  No gossip this time around because we talk more often.  But it was nice to have a visit.  He has new speakers in his ceiling so we watched a movie in the afternoon to test them out.  My choice this time was the 2006 version of Pink Panther with Steve Martin.  So I spent an hour an a half curled up on the couch giggling.  Just what I needed!  #2022pad #lunch #lunchwithafriend #latergram
18Jan22  Oh ick.  I am NOT showing you what the porch light looked like.  Cleaning the porch and porch light were not my job and wasn't something I even thought about over the last 3yrs.  Until it started looking like this.  The blackness is from the dust and dirt across the road (where there's a large horse paddock). When the wind comes from that direction, even with the windows closed I get a film of dust and dirt over everything.  And obviously cobwebs are not immune from it.  So I took a couple cleaning brushes with extensions on them and tackled this area as well as the porch light.  Rod used to bring the globe around the light into the house and wash it. I can't do that. I'm not safe on ladders.  So I'll just get it to be less scary looking and call it good.  Before I tackled this job, the area was sprayed with my favourite spider killer.  Were spiders hurt? Geez, I hope so. And I hope they stay away for a long time.  #dirt #cobwebs #porchcleaning #eww #spiders #latergram
11Sep22  Neurmal has a style all her own. She looks grumpy with a resting b*tch face, but is the sweetest cat I've ever known. She doesn't bite, she only scratches the side of my bed *!!) and her scratching posts.  She waits, ever so patiently in the mornings until I drag myself out of bed, and only THEN does she meow like a crazed hungry kitty waiting for her food.  She makes biscuits on the floor (kneads the floor with her paws) while meowing for her food so it can look like she stamping her feet impatiently. Which makes me laugh, and in the mornings - that's really amazing for me.  She has taken over as the only cat in this villiage and takes her patroling duties seriously.  Plus, she's my gym advisor and tells me when I'm slacking off.  #cf22 #style #catsofinstagram #catstyle #softkitty
06Sep22  It was a beautiful and warm afternoon.  I had an appointment not far from the beach so I decided to have a long walk on the esplanade.  I took this near the end of my walk - you can tell by the little bit of of pink on my nose.  My earrings decided to be a bit wonky but the rest of me looks pretty darn good for an almost 61yr old!  #2022pad  #beachwalk #beach #christiesbeach #cf22 #wonky
