What Did I do All That Time?

So what did I do during all the time MOTH was gone?...
Well...
  • I read seven books
  • Went out to dinner with friends four times
  • Watched over Henrietta
  • Caught Rhoda twice and returned her to her owner
  • Fed the birds daily
  • Watered the yard and the flower pots
  • Had three doctors appointments
  • Kept Bailey happy
  • Called the city twice about the lamp-post
  • Kept up with my blogs
  • Spent about a week hassling about my book cover
  • Ate two one pound boxes of Sees chocolates! Bought with Christmas gift certificates. (Shameless -- but confession is good for the soul ...and that is actually less than two chocolates a day!)
  • Ate Olive Garden's lasagna once and fish and chips once.
  • Ate cottage cheese and fruit for dinner more times than I cared to, but I had to compensate for the chocolates
  • Read my daily Bible Readings out on the patio every day
  • Didn't read the daily newspaper -- I'm happier that way
If all that sounds too relaxing -- Well, I AM supposed to be retired!

I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words; and I am not a lurker or a visitor, but I am a commentator.

Quite a list - how much we can get done when only looking after 1 (person), not to mention animals!

I'd say that was good use of your time, that is a good size list. Chris, I looking forward to seeing your painting of the church portal. I am also happy you now know I have two blogs, my Joe Cool blog is actually my main blog, my Arizona blog is something I do for fun since I take so many pictures. I hope you continue to visit both.

Hi there... yes, I spent 3 weeks in England but mostly in the south, I didn't go as far north as Yorkshire. I'm saving that for the next visit, whenever that is!
