I've heard of cats dipping a paw in their water before drinking it, but I've never seen any cat do that, apart from tigers on TV.
Last night I just happened to glance into the kitchen as Angel dipped his paw in his water bowl, then had a good long drink.
I know there is a reason for the dipping, I can't remember what that is right now, but it was interesting to see him do it.
I saw a sign on a vacant shopfront when I was in the city on Saturday, but didn't have my camera with me :( someone else noticed it and took a photo which turned up on the back page of our Sunday paper this morning, where all the other funny 'send-ins' go:
EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT
COFFEE IS IMPORTANTER
We've had a beautiful day here, almost spring-like, sunny blue skies, blossoms on the trees, golden wattle everywhere, if only the wind wasn't so darn cold.
Anyway, because it was sunny, I washed all my bedding, even pyjamas and dressing gown got a tumble in the hot suds, and I scooped up a ton of stuff I'd been avoiding washing because I don't like using the dryer too much.
Eventually three loads of washed things were hanging out in the fresh air and when it was dry I put those sunny fresh sheets right back onto the bed. I'm looking forward to slipping between the sheets later. There's nothing like that dried in the sunny air smell.
Sweet dreams tonight for sure.
I'm making a batch of brownies, they're in the oven as I type this (Sunday evening) but trying something different. Instead of chopped walnuts, which I usually leave out anyway, I've added a couple of tablespoons of hazelnut meal to the mix. I love hazelnuts and I love brownies. Both together should be doubly heavenly. Right? I'll let you know.
I saw in the paper, our treasurer, that Hockey fellow, wants mums to get back into the workforce, or lose their welfare payments. What planet is he on?
1: where are these mums going to find jobs??? there are already a zillion unemployed out there who can't get jobs!
2: who is going to mind the children?? Child care? does he seriously want women going to work just so they can hand over their wages to child care centres? you've seen what these places cost, right?
3: without the welfare payments that so many depend on for food and rent, (not all of them drink and gamble the funds away), how will they feed and clothe their children? Where will they live when they are evicted?
Clearly he hasn't thought this through. Not at a grass roots level.
