Nothing really new here so I thought I’d share a couple of impressions from today and the last couple of weeks. =) Especially for folks who are not on facebook, google+ or instagram.
Mostly, I try to read in the mornings and after lunch so that I get through the books that I brought here and have a better understanding of what I am doing. =P Today was very sunny though and I convinced Flo to go shopping with me (so boring, Nina!) and then have a coffee out in the sunshine. The sun here is really strong, and Flo and I both got a bit sunburnt just from the tiny coffee break (about 20 min).
It was Tina’s birthday last week so Flo and I baked muffins for her. Christine had given me plastic cups to bake muffins in and nice paper cups as a farewell gift and they were put to use for the first time now.
Other than that it has been a really nice spring and will hopefully be a nice summer, too. In September everything was blooming in the botanical garden and soon the roses in the rose garden will hopefully also start blooming.
Given that we live basically across the street from Tina and Brendan, we spend a lot of time there. One of my favourite things to do (when I’m not watching everybody else playing minecraft) is to annoy the cats. *lol* They have two cats: Sparky and Sophie. Sparky is a completely black tomcat who loves being pat at times and is an incredible bully for his sister at other times. Sophie is very shy, gets startled whenever someone moves, basically, but has the softest fur ever. She is black and white. Both of them don’t really like being picked up and they are not lap cats either so I kind of have to trick them. They have two cat beds which they like a lot and tend to sleep in a lot. So when they are asleep, I pick up the whole cat bed and put it on my lap. For some reason they don’t mind that too much. =) Enough rambling about cats now…
