Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny day in the upper 50′s. Gorgeous!
Today is chilly, cloudy, drizzly, and with an ice storm warning for tonight through tomorrow. Crud. Already been the the store once but perhaps I’d better go again, as up to half an inch of ice is forecast.
This morning my sis-in-law, Mary, and I went to our Achevez! meeting (it’s a department in the Fort Worth Woman’s Club) to paint bowls for the local food bank’s Empty Bowl luncheon. People pay $35 for a soup-and-dessert luncheon provided by local restauranteurs and bakeries and get to take a bowl home.
Here’s Mary putting the final touches on hers (these were taken with my cell phone’s camera so the quality isn’t much):
My plan was to paint wisteria on mine, but I’m not sure anyone would know it without being told:
In a couple of hours I’ll call the vet to get the update on Boots, who I hauled back to the office this morning. For a cat who has spent most of the weekend laying on a dining room chair, she became quite energetic once she spied the cat carrier. Had to chase her down to catch her and stuff her inside.
