Mothers' Day and it feels more like spring

Happy Mothers' Day, my friends.

I enjoyed a restful weekend -well to be truthful I slept alot. We have had several longer than usual work weeks, with workshops, and learning a course on language. This weekend I found time to catch up.

This morning while I was  reading and having my coffee, these pretty flowers were delivered. How thoughtful of Paul my son. They are bright and cheerful.

Our weather has become very nice, with temperatures around 18 Celsuis, and we are being told by Environment Canada to expect a hot summer. I plan to be ouside a good part of the time every day, with my group of children at the daycare and so have decided I may need a sunhat.

I am not partial to wearing hats, and haven't had a sunhat since a child, but this one seemed to appeal to me. I like the wider brim to cover my face slightly, and the cheerful colours.

I am still in the process of arranging to have my bathroom damage fixed, and it has proved interesting trying to find which insurance would be able to cover the work - my own insurance, or the condo insurance. My feeling was that my insurance would need to cover it as the damage was caused by me, however it doesn't seem to work that way.

I'll also need to stay somewhere for about 4 days, and board Herb and Art, as I can't use  the toilet while the work is being done to replace the floor. First everything comes out, then dryed out for a few days, and then new flooring put in.

I plan to stay at a motel, or possibly my sister's house, but am anxious about boarding the cats - not sure how they'll do.

Since my bathroom sink is still not functioning Arthur has found a new way to drink water.

He doesn't mind getting wet one bit, and does look kind of cute.

By the way, Teri,
I have downloaded a book, to my Kindle, from the cat series you reviewed on Goodreads. It looks like a fun read.

Well, still abit tired, and off to sleep early for the night.

Oh that is too funny! I suppose it is worth it to him to get a little wet.

The flowers from Paul are so pretty as is the sun hat. I try to keep my face shaded too, but I'm afraid years of living in FL have taken their toll on my skin. As far as temps go, we are told it is going up to 100 today! Already?! Then it will cool down the rest of the week, thankfully.

You could get a portable toilet:-) I think the cats will handle the boarding okay. I know it is harder on the kitties than the dogs sometimes. If you stayed with your sister, could they come with you?

Keep us posted Brenda and have a good week.

Thanks, Ann,
Wow, 100 degrees!
I'm glad it will be cooler for you later in the week.
Have a good week, ann, as well!

Goodness I almost missed this post.
Hope your bathroom is all fixed and you and the boys survived it. That is such a cute photo of Arthur drinking.
Hope you enjoyed the cat book.
Have you ever used your library for reading digital books? I rarely buy a book with the library books so available and other free books.

Love the flowers also.

Arthur is so handsome isn't he? And loves to pose for you too. I never tire of what cats get up to, you can see their minds working away .... Minerva x

It's so nice to have you visit, and you Mrs. Black are a very pretty cat.
