Saturday John and I brought Billy to the mall for an adoption event. It was very crowded. It felt really weird seeing business as usual and how life continues to go on knowing how the people in CT had their lives turned upside down.
There were 5 kitties at the adoption event sponsored by the group that is helping me to rehome Billy. This event is to get the kitties out in view for people to see and to help raise money for the group. No kitties actually go to new homes at the event because they have to fill out applications and such. There was interest in Billy, so we will see if anyone calls to start the adoption process. He deserves a good home.
He handled it pretty well, although he was not the big purr machine that he is at home. I wish he had been his super friendly self, but at least he wasn’t hissing and freaking out. He was just quiet. As soon as we got home with him, he came right out of the carrier and was rolling around and purring
John took me out for lunch for my football meal (finally!) while Billy was doing his thing. I chose Rockhill Bakehouse. Beverage of sparkling water by a pretty Christmas flower.
I had the grown up grilled cheese, which is one of my favorite sandwiches there. Grilled cheese with pesto on semolina bread.
I chose an apple as my side instead of chips – go me!
I bought something fun at the mall. I finished up the last bit of Christmas shopping, too. May as well finish it there when I had to pick Billy up to make dealing with all those crowds worthwhile, seeing as you all know how much I love crowds. Anyway, I bought nail polish! Look how festive!
Now I can sing Goldfinger and mean it
I also found something at Target I thought was just an internet rumor:
I’ve been trying to find these for a couple years and lo and behold – there they were! So I got them. I kind of like them, too. For a poptart anyway.
I had to show you a picture of one of our favorite places to go. This is Coffee Planet, which opened about a year ago. They have another location in Ballston Spa, which is 20 miles from us, so we don’t go there too often. It felt so homey in there this weekend. I would love a living room like this.
Sitting in here is so cozy and wonderful.
This was a weekend where I got so much done. Don’t you love times like that? I did deep cleaning (monthly goal), finished Christmas shopping *and* got all the presents wrapped, freed up a slow moving drain, lots of laundry and some good relaxing in (Go Broncos!!).
This is another one that I made. I need to do these again.
Tomorrow is a busy day and some snow coming, too.
