FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE



more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. After the rather busy weekend last week, I fell asleep while I watched "Escape to the Country" after lunch, so I don't know where I had escaped. The rest of the day I tried to update my comments and did phone calls to tell my friends that I am back again. Of course this took me some time. (The whole day says Mr. G !)

2. On Monday evening I noticed that cat Rosie's paw was swollen so next day I imediately went to the vet, she had an inflammation at a claw of her paw. So the vet gave her a shot against the inflammation and now for the next 4 days I had to give the shot, because it's easier to lift up fur and stitch inside than risking a battle with a furious cat who doesn't want to open her mouth to swallow a pill. Anyway I had excercised before, on Mr. G.'s belly when last year I had to give him a shot every day and fur is easier to lift than skin !

3. I had a lot of work to sort out all the pictures from Egypt and then from Toby's birthday in Amsterdam and spent nearly the whole day with that, only interrupted by shopping and household scores.

4. Now my photos from Egypt are sorted so I went over to Dominique to show them to her, as she had been in the same hotel as me last year. (see post below)

5.



I renewed the photos of Toby I had in frames, because he is a little boy now and not a baby anymore. I am not a big fan of exposing framed family pictures in all rooms, but one in the living room, one in in mine and one in Mr. G's office is OK.



My favorite photo I took on his first birthday

The worst thing for me is getting used to daily routine again and to wear winter clothes !

Even though you must wear winter clothes wear bright colors or bright scarves. I am determined this winter to be a bright spot in the drab winter skies!

It always takes a while to recuperate from a vacation. Glad you had some time to relax and sort photos. Toby is precious!

I've been known to fall asleep MANY times in front of the TV or even at the theatre so I understand what you're saying.

Good for you in sorting your pictures so quickly. I am way behind. Sigh. Little Toby is so cute.

I'm not crazy about winter clothes either, but I hate being cold even worse, so I wear them. :-)

Just wrap up warmly, my friend. I can't imagine getting cold! I love that you injected Rosie for four days. Love the photos of Toby. He is quite the handsome little lad. Have a GREAT weekend. Jo

Calling by to play catch up after completing our olive harvest and it certainly looks like the holiday was a great success and such hard work. :)

Sorry about all those deleted comments by the way: they were all the same! I blame it on my computer

Great pictures of the little cutey-pie, Toby. Sorry about your cat. Sounds like you've been having your hands full and still able to keep up a blog. These are great FFF, Gettina. Have a wonderful weekend.
