So I realized St Patrick’s Day was Saturday and I haven’t really celebrated for years. The housework is massively behind while I finish the thesis (it’s getting there), the blog is barely keeping up, so I decided to postpone Caturday Thoughts until later while I got caught up on housework, and the normal paperwork and shopping. I’ll be going to the rescue thrift as usual and then I am going out for a beer at one of the local breweries. Yesterday would have been my mother’s 94th birthday. It was a standing joke I always forgot her birthday until I realized it was the morning of St. Patrick’s Day. She was of Irish descent so we agreed that it was OK because she really would have liked if her birthday was ON St. Patrick’s Day and that’s when we always celebrated it. It’s ironic now she’s gone I remember on time. I have a very limited social life with all the work going on and all the things I’m juggling, so I decided the h*** with it, I’m going to toast my mother with a beer “at the pub”. It seems like the thing to do.
Also, I got tired of trying to ignore the Kiragawa seed catalog. Planting doesn’t start here until the end of April but you can always start seeds indoors. It’s just this house is always so cold and damp. But again, I am tired of everything in my life being in suspended animation. So the h*** with it, I went ahead and ordered the seeds. I will do my best not to let the house kill them off and I only ordered things that would do well in pots so I can move them if I have to.
So with your indulgence, a much more interesting post will appear later tomorrow with interesting cat news and hopefully interesting human (beer and food) news too. I just have to take a day and go for it.
