|a blurry but beautiful photo of daisies, it was a windy day|
How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic, I stayed home and more importantly I had nothing on the calendar. I decided my house is the perfect vacation getaway because it has the greatest coffee maker in the world, a comfortable bed and all of my knitting is here.
Before the heatwave arrived today, I managed to squeeze in a daily walk and discovered the daisies are blooming! Sadly, I cannot pick a few for my home because someone (cough, cough, cough) would just eat them. I'm sure one day in my future I'll be able to pick them and have them in a vase, worst case scenario is that vase would be in a non-cat room.

I read a book in less than 24 hours, now the book was a short one, but still, quite impressive for me. The book is Failing Up, by Leslie Odom, Jr. I highly recommend reading it - he reflects on his path to success (he played the original Aaron Burr in Hamilton) and gives advice on being true to yourself. I loved his positivity and his gratitude to his mentors and opportunities.
Saturday I spent most of the day by the pool reading a book or daydreaming. After that I was back inside to knit and then knit some more. I cannot imagine a more perfect day. We attended Saturday evening Mass (with music) and then picked up a pizza for dinner. Yum.
This morning, Holly was trying her very best to get inside my husband's briefcase. I checked the bag and found what she was after -- a charging cord for an iPhone. She LOVES them. We do not like her loving them.
Another funny story, many years ago I celebrated being 46 years old two years in a row. I was so excited when my sister told me I was not 47 but indeed 46, phew! Now I do the math when someone asks me my age...time flies by and I can't keep it straight anymore.
Oh! Yesterday Frodo resisted his urge to chase Holly. I was so so proud of him, you could see is pea sized brain trying to decide should I or should I chase that cat. I know he has impulse control problems, who doesn't?
