What I Did Wednesday #29 WITH A LATE UPDATE!



  1. Watered the flowers in the pots outside.
  2. Made out the grocery list. (Spencer came up later and added 'DVDs' to the last column, using my pen.  :)
  3. Watched Mr. Cardinal in the feeder.
  4. Checked the garden for anything ready to pick.
  5. Filled a bag and a box of unwanted items for the thrift store.
  6. Enjoyed the morning light on my desk.
  7. Watched the light turn to dark clouds, lightning, and eventually rain.  Much needed but only about 15 minutes worth.  We need days of it!
  8. Added some cheery stickers to my freshly painted toes.
  9. Watched rain drops dancing in the pool.
  10. You know my yummy Banana Toffee Crunch Muffins?  I mixed up the batter and put it in a greased tube pan.  Baked for 1 hour.  Yum. Easier than muffins, too.  I think I'll be making it this way from now on!
  11. Caught Oreo in the cupboards.
  12. Watered the inside plants.



I also cleaned Nugget's cage and the parakeets' cage,
did 4 loads of laundry, cleaned the bathrooms,
vacuumed, cleaned the litter box and ran on the treadmill.
Oh, and made dinner and did the dishes.
But some things aren't as fun to photograph. haha.


I hope your day was lovely, too!
Have you thought of photographing your day?
It makes even the ordinary seem extraordinary.


And!!!! We interrupt this Wednesday to show you what some one in town
 dropped off to me this evening.  A frightened, starved little boy kitten they
found wandering around.  I guess they thought Mrs. Doolittle would take him in at the zoo. ha ha. 
 Well, she was right.  How could I refuse?
I even had a little bag of kitten chow.  How convenient!
He's exhausted, can't you tell?  Aww.
No name yet.  Hmmm....

    1. Never thought of photographing my day
      As it would make for quite the boring display
      Plus then you'd have to watch the cat go
      And I'm supposed to stop that you know hahaha
      They love getting in the cupboards though
      Exploring to and fro
      The cardinal looks like he rammed his face in the feeder or something
      I think his bells must be ready or are giving a ring
      And dvds can't be beat
      Then of course the pool can beat the heat
      And everything else is too much
      I'd be in traction for sure with such haha

    2. give gloria some slack
      it's hard to be first while under the dirt so black

      haha...I dare you, cat, to photograph your day.
      sleeping and eating and playing would dismay
      and maybe amuse
      other things might abuse.
      lol......

    3. ppfffftttttttttt! to Pat of course

    4. Yeah some might not be able to handle my day
      As the cat would put everything on display
      So that would be scary to say the least
      Be quite the picture feast
      And pffft the glory dear
      From my little rhyming rear

      Look at you with number nine
      Adding another feline
      If everyone in town knows
      Soon tons of kitties will run across your toes
      Seems happy as can be
      There at your sea

    5. He slept on my stomach all night
      after crying for his mother with fright.
      But seems happier today
      and wanting to eat and play.
      He's so malnourished and thin
      will be fun to get a little fat on him!

    6. Poor little guy
      Hopefully he isn't shy
      And plays with the other eight
      Or he could have a bad fate

  7. I have thought about it several times, but even with your instructions, have not been able to make a collage with numbers..but love reading and seeing yours. I really like your idea of baking muffins in the tube pan..will try that with my sour cream cinnamon coffee cake.

    Like your earrings in the sunlight. I wear silver hoops all the time. Your's look gold! Will do laundry, change beds and vacuum tomorrow. Had doctor appt. today, and got hooked watching the Dodgers play a extra innings game on TV....but did win it in the 12th inning.

    1. 12 innings? wow...sounds fun!

      yes, the earrings are gold. I wear them a lot. :) Sounds like tomorrow is your cleaning day. I work an auction, so I needed to get my stuff done today while I was home.

      There's a new picture editing thing out picmonkey.com Maybe that would be easier? You should give it a try.

    1. They don't dislike them but they don't care to have anything to do with them. I make them pet the rabbit or cats and they will, but only to get it over with. lol....

  11. Woman, you exhaust me! You are so productive. Do you have trouble getting the stickers off when you change your pedicure? I do. Maybe it's the kind I use. Love the kitten...he's in good hands.

    1. Yes! the stickers are hard! I soak a little remover on them and scrape them with the side of my nail file. haha.

  13. Dear Betsy, I am returning online after 10 days spend with family.;) Love your new header and your day sounds delightfully busy. Beautiful toes.;)And love the light on your desk.;) The new kitty looks just like Sammy - so how many cats exactly do you have now? Enough to call it an animal shelter?;) Have a great day,
    xoxo

    1. Oh, I hope you had a good time! 10 days...what a nice long holiday! :) Yes, he does look so much like Sammy! This makes it 9. We had 9 kittens before but Mustache left and never returned. So, it's back to nine.

      This one needs some TLC...way too skinny and dehydrated. :(

Too true about photographing it though! you work harder than most, that is for sure. msut be hard to just stop and put your feet up with constant demands. the world is a better place, families are better from sacrifices like your's Betsy.

    Awww, I think you should call him Tommy.

  21. How cute that Spencer wrote his DVD request on your grocery list. Very clever!
    Our granddaughters write their requests on my grocery list. I always know what they have written, but Unks doesn't. One time he asked me if I really wanted all those snacks. And another time they just wrote the word "everything" on the list.
    I love your new nail color and stickers. Looks like you are ready for another pedi party : )
    That was so VERY VERY kind of you to help the stray kitten. You were his angel today.
