Good night Squirrel Fans.

Whilst Rat Surprise was thankfully not on the menu at the tea rooms my Dad picked for me to take him out to Lunch, nobody said it wasn’t an option !

“We did Rat Surprise last night for the Sons of Bloodaxe annual dinner," he said. There was a general groan. "And it was rat." He raised his voice against the complaining. "You can't use anything else - listen - you've got to have the noses poking through the pastry, all right? Some of the best rat we've had in a long time!”
― Terry Pratchett, Feet of Clay

Where ever you are in your day I hope you’re enjoying it! 😊🫶🐿️🖖

:bear_love: Ello sweet and lovely Friendos 💜

Walking the SniffBook walkies 🐾 now. Had a good time at the gym, Skoosh still working as she should as well, and Arwen is getting some sniffs.

Weather will be hot again today! So I'm thinking of going to the Herperduin with Arwen again this morning, so she can get another swim in. 😊 And some extra stiff before it gets to be too hot for her.

Hopefully I can unpack some of my cd's today, I places the small cabinets for them, so I'm hoping to get rid of some more boxes this morning. I wanna make some temporary space upstairs, so I can temporarily get my gaming stuff there (loads is in the bathroom at the moment), so I can hook up the washing machine (need some laundry done). And maybe dad and I can soon set up the shower cabin... 😊

First I'll walk with Arwen, then I'll work on my blog a bit, and then I'll probably get ready to take Arwen to the Herperduin. I shared some pictures of our visit yesterday on :pixelfed: , it's a bigger post, which can be found here:
https://pixelfed.social/p/PixysSnaps/720079075680707827

Depending on how I feel after the walkies, I'll check the opening times of some stores in Oss, so I can get some groceries there. Hopefully it's not too busy if I can go early enough, but if course it's a Saturday, so more chance of it being a bit more crowded. Ah well...

Maybe I can get some things done downstairs, if I manage to empty out the bathroom some... Dunno how much energy I'll have... But I've got enough plans though 😂... Just don't have the energy to do all that my brain would love to do... But slowly, I hope to de-clutter some of the mess I'm in, and hopefully that will then contribute to having some more rest in my head.

It's still quite warm, which is nice enough, but weird, as about a week ago, this night's temperature was the daily temp... Next week we should have some more "regular" temps again. Hopefully there won't be too much rain, so I can manually ventilate the house best I can using the windows. The construction workers should have vacation now, so hopefully it will be less noisy out for a while, making it easier to relax with the windows and door open. 😊

Best write a bit for my blog now, as Arwen keeps "pulling the break" to have sniffs... Hopefully she can make up the "missed sniffs" when we visit the Herperduin later this morning 🐾 💜.

Taking some new snaps as we walk though the village again. Maybe I can share some on Pixelfed after working on my blog a bit. 😊

:bear_nuzzle:

Hope you'll all have a nice start of the weekend!

🧚🏼‍♀️ 🍀 💜 🐾

@PixysJourney @weirdfolks Morning CCDP 🧚‍♀️🥰💜

Well that all seems to be progressing well, Herperduin looks lovely from the pictures you have posted, a lot like Formby Woods not super far from my parents house - there are red squirrels there !

Hope you get th washing machine working & get a little more stuff unpacked & put where you want it. !

Have a good day sweetie 😊🫶🐿️🖖

MAJ1 ,
@MAJ1@beige.party avatar

@PixysJourney @weirdfolks Yay for getting the laundry done, I hope it dried ok!

Herpenduin looks ideal for you two !

Today was not bad at all !

Good evening Squirrel Fans.

So next time you’re toying with the idea of using the ant powder think on this:

“Perhaps more importantly, the ants used all the sugar lumps they could steal to build a small sugar pyramid in one of the hollow halls, in which, with great ceremony, they entombed the mummified body of a dead queen. On the wall of one tiny hidden chamber they inscribed, in insect hyeroglyps, the true secret of longevity.
They got it absolutely right and it would probably have important implications for the universe if it hadn't, next time the University flooded, been completely washed away.”
― Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites

Where ever you are in your day I hope you’re enjoying it! 😊🫶🐿️🖖

Most polls have Georgia leaning right, which means Georgia's 16 electors are likely to support a Trump presidency.

Are there anyone from Georgia who can explain to me, how Georgians can hear the tape of Trump telling Brad Raffensberger to commit election fraud and think, "Oh yes, let's have more of that please!"

These are actual signs from the actual Republican National Convention, mass produced for the occasion, so every participant can participate in spreading the ethnic cleansing message.

This is not freedom of speech. This is just pure hatred.

Good evening Squirrel Fans.

Traversing the corridors of L-Space I came across this:

“Everything starts somewhere, though many physicists disagree. But people have always been dimly aware of the problem with the start of things. They wonder how the snowplough driver gets to work, or how the makers of dictionaries look up the spelling of words.”
― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

& G’day Squirrel Fans, hope I find you bright eyed & bushy tailed!

Tuesday has dawned bright & warm !

I am totally solar powered , I feel so much more energy when the sun is out there strutting its stuff !

So gotta drop Mrs S off at work this morning as I will need the car later for going to get this Holter monitor thing for what my Dad calls a swinging brick but what the cardiologist insists is my heart. I don’t think it will show anything but hey ho gotta jump thru the hoops.

I might risk a walk by the reservoir on the way back from the hospital, assuming the weather is still good.

Catch up with you lovely Peeps when I can , tootdles for now !

Have a cracking day & remember : Don’t let ‘em Cash-ew ! 😊🫶🐿️🖖
