Another Slow Motion Day

I'm not off to any kind of fast start today, although I got up in a good mood with some zip in my step.  I've still got some things weighing on me, and that along with seasonal allergies are messing with my sleep patterns.  When Princess Yakyak got up this morning, she threw up right after breakfast, so it's a good thing I didn't get called to substitute.  After getting SG and Tech Guy out the door, we both went back to bed for a while.  She's feeling better now, and I'm trying to build up a little momentum all over again.  (Admittedly that's hard to do with my cat Sophia draped around my shoulders at the moment.  I'd much rather snuggle her while I sit at the computer than tackle the last of the laundry monster left over from yesterday.)

So this day has turned out to be kind of random:  a bit of rest, a bit of housework, a bit of yard stuff eventually, some pet care stuff (a bath for PYY's guinea pig Cookie), taking some photos in the garden, more cleaning, time on the computer catching up with news and Facebook.  Safety Guy will be back from school in a little while, and we'll see how his day went.  When the school called earlier, I had a moment of, "Oh no, what's going on with Safety Guy?!"  But, it turned out that they really need a sub for tomorrow, which I unfortunately cannot help them with - I've got another commitment.  But it pointed out to me just  how on edge I've been about SG at school lately.

 Cookie's bath - he's a good boy about the whole thing, 
and he's fluffy and smells nice now.

While it will be a light paycheck for this week (only two full days total), I'll count my blessings that I can be here for PYY, help my sister-in-law tomorrow, and get my house shaken back into some sort of order before we have friends over for dinner Friday night.  The continued gorgeous weather helps.

Blessings to all of you - I hope you have a lovely day.

A violet crocus in my front yard today.  
The only bad thing about the early warm weather is that
my crocuses are going by far too quickly.
They just can't handle the heat, and fade fast.
