late, late, later

“I spend a lot of time saving time. I have a filing cabinet full of clocks and watches.”  - Jarod Kintz

I wanted to share a favorite recipe this week but plans didn't quite work out! 
I rushed around in a blur of domestic activity and not much creativity.

I feel like this logo on my hall clock: running from one activity to the next 
(slightly lopsided too!)   
Lovely hubby is again away for work;
 boys each had a day off school with throaty viral things; 
the cat and dog used up a day with check-ups at the vets
 or as they say here veterinarians. 
(The former implies soldiers who have 'done' battle - bit how I felt this week!)

Beauty but a terror. Those paws dip into the fish tank. No casualties - yet!

It's now the weekend: time to wind down and recharge.
Perhaps a bit of sewing and making that recipe.  
I look forward to that!

  2. Oh that tin!!
    We refer to the vets as the V.E.T because everyone knows cats cannot spell. Thanks for dropping by my blog today.

    1. Love that little apple brooch of yours! Good luck with the new shop. x

  3. All sounds familiar. Have a good weekend. Happy Baking. Any sign of the print yet? x

    1. Nothing in the post box yet! It usually takes about 10 days but we've had 2 big snow storms which seems to delay things. Will let you know as soon as it's here! x

  4. Hi Tanya,

    I just found your blog, and am looking forward to read about your "mum" adventures in the land of "moms." Many years ago I moved from the land of "moms" to the Canadian land of "mums." It's always interesting looking at a different culture from the inside out.

    And Canadians say vet as well. Until you mentioned it I had actually forgotten that Americans tend to say veterinarian.

    1. Thanks for dropping by. Agree it's interesting celebrating the differences and similarities. x

  5. Your cat's eyes are incredible. What a wonderful capture! We've just enjoyed a beautiful Summer in sunny Australia, it's hard to imagine the snow fall you've hard. I've loved being whisked away on a white adventure with a cup of tea by my side whilst scrolling through your blog.

    1. Lucky you enjoying the summer sun! We've had so much snow and have just had more of it! Roll on the spring time... x

  6. Can't wait to see what you make in that tin, such a cute cat.

  7. Hey, Its looking good:) Your cat pic is adorable.
