Several years ago, on another blog over at Blogger, I tried a weekly post for The Sunday Salon. I am going to commit again to this new weekly post. What I hesitate about is I am not always sure that my little life holds an interest for my readers. I feel that most days are everyday living. The Sunday Salon might post on a Saturday or a Sunday, it depends on the schedule.
What was my week like?
My world revolves around the days and hours that I babysit our four-year-old granddaughter named Charlotte. She will start pre-k in August. This little moment in time for us will end when she starts school. When Charlotte is here, we eat snacks, watch the Disney Plus channel, read books, work puzzles, and pretend we are hunting for dragons. The dragon is usually in the bathtub and when we scare him, he goes down the drainpipe.
My husband and I have fostered 5 baby kitties since Easter. I found homes for two and they are living with a new family. The other three are staying with us. Finn and Quinn (brothers), we’ve cared for since they were between 2 and 3 weeks old. I bottle fed them until they ate gruel. We’ve had Wyatt since she was about 4 weeks old. All of them are wonderful, sweet, playful; and we’ve bonded quick. They are a joy to us. Meanwhile, our beloved cat, Bogie, died June 2. I dropped him off at the veterinarian clinic for what we thought was an infected broke tooth. Instead, Bogie had a fast-growing cancer tumor in his mouth. Bogie was only 9. Our heart is broken but warmed by our new babies.
New baby kitties:
I came across a YouTube channel that I am in love with! I have been binge watching episodes this past week. It is called Forgotten Way Farms. While watching her cook, bake, garden, show me her cottage, or thrift store shop, I am transported on a mini vacation. Her voice is soothing. She is gentle and kind. And I always learn something new.
I am not a big tv watcher. I prefer a quiet evening reading. However, in the past week I have watched several movies-all on Amazon Prime.
1. We Were Soldiers with Mel Gibson. Excellent.
2. The Thomas Crown Affair-the remake with Renee Russo and Pierce Brosnan. Excellent.
3. No Time to Die with Daniel Craig. Very good.
4. Quantum of Solace with Daniel Craig. Very good.
5. Marathon Man with Dustin Hoffman. Very good.
6. Mr. Jones with James Norton. Excellent.
7. Val. A documentary of Val Kilmer. If you’ve not watched this, I highly recommend. Excellent.
8. Last Call with Jeremy Irons. Good.
9. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back with Tom Cruise. Okay to Good.
10. 3 Days of the Condor with Robert Redford. Excellent.
I’m thinking of making a list of movies from the 1970s that I’ve never watched or want to watch again. I was a kid in this era. It’s a nostalgic kind of thing to watch movies from this period in time.
The temperatures are HOT. Stifling. Sizzling. Today’s high temp is 102. Humidity is 19%. It will be 102 tomorrow and then a front comes through-temps will be in the mid to upper 90s during the next week except for Monday’s high of 90. No rain is expected. It will remain hot in my area of the world until mid-September when it will become tolerable.
This time of the year I don’t always cook supper everyday as it doesn’t just heat up the kitchen but the whole house. I try to keep the house as cool as possible. My husband will barbecue, or I will cook something that we can eat on for a few days. Simple meals.
Until next time on The Sunday Salon. Take care!
