Read Tweets and email, LiveJournal and did nothing else useful for a while, then went out to Bed, Bath & Beyond to get a few things I needed, stopped at the Petsmart to get some dishes for the cats to replace the ones that have gotten broken in the last few months (at three separate times, by three separate entities) and there saw a beautiful tabby/flame-point I tried to talk Barb into adopting, but she held fast, having just spent a great deal fixing the car.
Then came home, ate lunch (leftovers from Friday night's dinner at our lovely local bistro, Guiseppe's, which you may have seen on "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives"), then landed on the bed and slept for almost two hours.
Watched some more DVR stuff from the week; adored the season opener of Community, nicely creeped out by Criminal Minds (Tim Curry still rocks, and was UBER chilling), and the new Hawaii Five-0, which may not be the greatest, but hey, I really enjoyed seeing two of my very favorite television vampires kicking the crap out of each other in the climactic scene (and always love seeing Daniel Dae Kim). O'Loughlin is getting the hang of American television (and his accent), I think. Could be fun.
Then did some laundry and got it on the line.
So I am accomplished. What I did not do was take any pictures, so I'll use one I didn't use from yesterday....
This may be the last remaining truly rural property in our neighborhood -- behind that huge, ginormous Eucalyptus tree is about three or four acres of farmhouse, chicken coop (you can see the chickens on the lawn), and a little horse barn with horse. I'll take some more pictures of it eventually, because I have always liked it, especially those gigantic trees that line the front. Some of have died (you can see the stumps), but there are at least three still standing (and a few more down the block in front of an apartment building; not sure how long those trees have been standing there, but obviously since before this area was so built up).
Tonight I warmed up the leftover chicken soup from the other day and made some chocolate scones. Chardonnay goes really well with this soup.
Happy Caturday to all!
