We had to stop off at the vet yesterday on the way home from shopping as Mr. Swiss had forgotten to have Tabby’s Vaccination card stamped with her injection renewals. She has quite a history of injections. The photo only shows the second page, the first page is full, but she is now an elderly lady. Of course the vet does not do it for nothing, but a bill for illness would amount to more. When we arrived at the vet, Mr. Swiss said he will go quickly and I can wait in the car. No way, I thought, you never know what you might see at the vet for an interesting photo – perhaps a snake, a lizard, a parrot, anything is possible. However, this time there was only a dog being very friendly. It seems the dog belongs to one of the ladies working for the vet. Anyhow I did not miss the opportunity of taking a photo. We also had to pick up Tabby’s “tic” and “flee” medicine, although Tabby is a clean cat with short fur, but better to be safe than sorry. You just have to empty the capsule on the back of her neck in the fur and it spreads into the body. Some say it is not so good, but we have never had a problem. The only problem is getting Tabby to accept. She has the habit of realising when something is good for her and she afterwards spends the next few minutes trying to lick it off. However licking the back of the neck is not so easy.
The plumber called past for an inspection of our cracked sink which will be replaced in a few days by the specialist. No problem, the insurance covers it all. We also had our soap dish replaced for the bath, which has to be set into the wall. A metal part of the old dish had broken, and it was difficult to take the soap without cutting your finger on the sharp edge, although Mr. Swiss did tie some black sticky tape around it. It did not look so good, so ow we have a nice stainless steel one, bigger than the last one, although the soap bars are not bigger: anyhow it looks good.
I almost set fire to the kitchen yesterday, but I did mention that in my daily prompt blog. I forgot there was butter melting in the pan, and was convinced that I had not begun to melt the butter. Luckily I smelt it before anything happened – just a golden oldie moment of forgetfulness.
At last the snow has disappeared. Actually it did not bother me because it was in places out of my way and was pretty to look at. On the other hand, my photos were somehow becoming boring, everything had a white backgroud. I can see clearly now the snow has gone (would be a good line for a song) and even my photos seem to be sharper, although perhaps I was not shaking when I took them, or the sparrow was sitting still in the tree.
And that’s that. I have other things to do, but not so much, just a few windows to clean keeping up appearances. Will be back later. Today I am just cooking spaghetti with a tuna fish sauce so what could possibly happen?
