A Day in the Life

Standard

Recently, I had the unfortunate occasion to contract the flu. It’s been about 5 years since I have had the flu. I have forgotten how long it takes to get over it. This is the kind of thing that wipes you out so badly that all you can do is lay in your bed and watch TV. Sometimes lifting the remote may even be too much effort. Not being able to breathe properly and being in a somewhat feverish state is not really conducive to getting a good night’s sleep. So, to entertain myself I started to document the daily activity of my cat. This allowed me to occupy myself while I thought I was dying. My cat actually gets up pretty early to start his “work,” so maybe he DOES deserve that long mid-morning nap that he takes.

5:00 a.m. I am ready to start the day. Eat breakfast. Visit the litter box. Stretching exercises. Wash face and ears.

5:30 a.m. I speak to the birds and squirrels from the back window and tell them that they need to get busy doing their work.

6:00 a.m. I go upstairs to watch the sunrise from the East window.

7:00 a.m. Sit on the stairs to guard the front door, making sure there are no intruders, but also wait here until my owner/slave gets up.

8:00 a.m. One of my owners gets up now. I can stop my vigil on the stairs. I follow him to the kitchen with my tail up, happy that he emerged from his room one more time. He never gives us treats, but I am always hopeful that I can scam him for some with my sweet, angelic face.

8:15 a.m. I give up the cause for extra treats and go sit by the bedroom door from which my other owner will emerge. She’s really nice. She always gives us treats first thing in the morning. It is payment for all our hard work. I wait patiently. I may sing her some songs outside her door to express my desire to see her.

8:45 She finally comes out. I greet her with a happy meow and run to the kitchen with my tail up. I sit expectantly beside my treat bowl waiting for the precious morsels to drop in my bowl.

9:00 My appetite sated, I take the next few minutes to wash my face, ears and whiskers, being careful in case some treat crumbs got caught in my whiskers.

9:15 Morning exercises, consisting of sprints from one end of the house to the other, using the couch and other furniture as hurdles.

9:30 Play fetch using one of my “worms” with my owner/slave. (Note from owner/slave: “worms” are pipe cleaners.)

10:00 I am tired, but need attention. I will sit on my owner/slave’s lap while she taps her fingers on the board with the bright light. She must pet me and scratch my head and ears. She has no choice because I am laying on her arms. This impedes her progress with the tapping. I kiss her hands to show her how much I appreciate her and love her. She tastes like treats.

10:30 It is about time for my morning nap. I am tired from all the work I have done this morning. But first I must bathe.

11:00 Nap

1:00 I hear noises near my bowl. It must be time for treats again. I get up and stretch. I wait at my bowl, staring at my owner/slave until she gives me my much deserved treats. YUM!

1:15 Visit the litter box. Eat a proper lunch. Stare out the window to inspect the work of the birds, squirrels and lizards. They do not get much work done.

1:30 Time to do some work. I follow my owner/slave around as she moves around my house. She is doing things I don’t understand, but I must inspect her work to make sure whatever she is doing is done properly. This makes me very tired.

2:30 Play with my worms and other toys. Chase lizards from the other side of the window. I usually alternate the windows each day for this activity for variety.

3:30 Snack time. No treats, just an afternoon meal.

4:00 I need another nap after all my hard work. I take a quick bath, not like my morning bath. This one is just maintenance and spot cleaning. I must keep my fur satiny smooth and free of tangles. I have long hair, so I must stay on top of this. It’s a big job.

4:15 Nap

6:00 Time to get up. I hear noises near my treat bowl. It is time for treats again. My owner/slave is making food they will eat. It smells wonderful, but I am a carb-ivore. I only eat crunchy food made especially for cats. I wait expectantly at my bowl until she gives me my well-deserved treats. I play with my worms in the kitchen while my owner/slave is working. I must keep her on her task or they will surely starve to death.

7:30 My owner/slave finally sits down on the couch. She watches this box with pictures on it. It is the perfect time for my evening nap. She worships me and I worship her. She scratches my ears and my head. If she does something I don’t like I will have to punish her by biting her hand. She doesn’t like that, but she must learn her lesson. That doesn’t happen very often though because I have trained her well. I usually doze off while she is rubbing my fur. It is so comforting.

10:00 My owner/slave must sleep sometime. She usually goes to bed around this time. I would like to sleep with her in her bed, but I am not allowed in her room. As consolation, she gives me treats before she retires to her room. I do not like this and let her know that I need her presence by howling at her door for a few minutes. I will not see her until the morning. She doesn’t come out. There is nothing left to do but sleep. So, I go upstairs to sleep in the room upstairs. I can see the moon from there.  It has been a productive day.

Savory Beef Stew

Standard

The temperatures have been frigid this year. There is nothing better on a cold night than a comforting, piping hot bowl of soup or stew. I’ve had this soup recipe around for a long time and I have altered the original version of it to accomodate my husband who has sensitivities to MSG. The original version called for a couple of Campbell’s soups for the gravy. I took a different route to make a flavorful sauce. I usually make a huge roast in the crockpot  so that I can use the leftovers in the stew. I love making two meals out of one. It makes me feel like I am a good steward of my money.

Ingredients

1 lb beef stew meat or leftover roast, cut into large chunks

evoo

4-5 red potatoes, cut into large chunks

2 large carrots, peeled and thickly sliced

1 large onion, cut into large chunks

Mushrooms, or any leftover vegetables

1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce

1 tsp. beef bouillon

1 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Cut the potatoes into large chunks, leaving the skins on. Place in a pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil.

IMG_0539

2. In a Dutch oven, heat some evoo until hot. Place the beef chunks in the pan and saute until hot.

IMG_0537

3. Add the carrots, onions and other vegetables to the pan.

4. Drain the potatoes. Add them to the pot.

IMG_0541

5. Add the tomato sauce.

IMG_0546

6. Add the bouillon.

IMG_0560

7. Add the water, salt and pepper.

8. Heat until desired temperature. Serve immediately along with a simple salad.

Good Deals

Standard

You can find good deals at the grocery store even if you don’t use coupons. These are the deals I found in the Houston area that are good without coupons. However, if you have a coupon to pair with the deal, that makes it even better.

I am all about healthier eating and will not post about a lot of processed foods, although their might be a few things listed. I also think it is a good idea to do some comparison shopping at your nearest Aldi store. I have found that their products can be seasonal, but also many of their products do not contain HFCS or MSG and they can be much cheaper than their main stream counterparts.

American History for Middle Schoolers

Standard

What better place to begin a study of American History than with Christopher Columbus. Yes, the dinosaurs and Native Americans were here first, but that is better suited for a study of ancient times. I suggest keeping all of the output from any projects, writing, etc. in a binder, folder or notebook.

1. Watch the following short biography about Christopher Columbus  on YouTube (this is a History Channel production):

Christopher Columbus – Mini Biography

2. Print out a world map. Plot all 4 of Columbus’s voyages on the map. Use different colors to identify each voyage.

3.  Complete this lesson plan from Edsitement. Complete one activity per day until done. There are a total of 8 activities.
