Thieves in the night

Once again somebody thought they needed something in our possession more than we did. Last night somebody broke into the shed in the garden. We have not yet taken the time to clean it out and so whatever got taken was neither valuable nor important. What is important is, that they trespassed on our property and opened a door that was not theirs to open.
And what else is important is that I am now feeling violated and scared once again. Who says next time they won't try the house or the basement? I don't want to leave the house because I don't want to come home to it empty and my cat gone. I am scared and don't feel safe in my own house at the moment and I hate these people, whoever they are, for that.

No more music

Tomorrow Sonific will go offline and all our blogs will be silent again.

My Weekend

We finally got the garden planted:

Discovered the first roses:

A new knitting project:

It was a quiet weekend. We both got a bit too much sun on Saturday and spent Sunday inside, resting, watching hockey and eating way too much. ;-)

A Day in My Life - April 14, 2008

Monday, April 14, 2008 - a day in my life

We got up a little after 6 am. While Del was in the bath I started the coffee, checked on the yogurt I made last night and packed his lunch box. The weather forecast said it would be raining today so I did not do laundry.

6:30 am Breakfast for everybody:


7:10 am: Del leaves for work. Checked on the seedlings in the enclosed porch - it came down to almost freezing last night, I am glad we did not plant them outside yet. Let Miss K. out into the porch to get some sunshine.

Read and answered emails, read my favorite blogs.

Washed dishes, tidied up the living and dining room, walked around the garden, filled the bird bath, found half a dead mouse + head, apparently a love gift from the outdoor kitty that decided to take up residence in our yard. We had just recently talked about the advantages of having an outdoor cat that is a good mouser. :)

10 am: Morning tea and books.

11 am: Wrote first part of this post, checked emails.

12:30 pm: Lunch

After lunch the weather report proved to be true, what started as a bright and sunny morning turned into a wet and gray afternoon. I spent two cozy hours on the sofa, watching re-runs of Crossing Jordan and knitting a blue scarf with the yarn I bought on Saturday.

After washing another load of dishes (yes, I admit, I did not do them yesterday), I fixed dinner, veggie rice, made from leftover veggies and brown rice and a tossed salad.

5:45 pm: Del comes home a little late, we have dinner.

Game 3 of the Stanley Cup play offs and my Pens are leading their series 2:0. Keep your fingers crossed for tonight's game. ;-)

That's all folks! Just another quiet, ordinary day, just the kind I like best. :-)

Good Night!

What is Worse?

Warning! Don't look at the picture if you are squeamish!

Finding a dead mouse in your garden or finding half a dead mouse (+ head) in your garden?

A bargain and a bit of knitting

Our Dollar Tree had Lion Brand Bouclé Yarn this weekend in really nice colors. I had some spending money and this is what I came home with.

Sunday night 4 of these balls looked like that. ;)
