Just for those interested in how things are going in my neck of woods. I have been pretty busy lately. What with the shorter than normal working week (Monday was an official day off, though my husband had to work), visitors, celebrating my birthday and things like that I didn't really have much time to devote to the blog though I kept on posting.
After all we've been through lately, the things are slowly coming back to normal. I partially recovered my strength and decided to invest more time in my housekeeping, starting with the attic which I finally finished cleaning and decluttering this week. Long ago, when I had help around the house, I started making a catalogue of our books (both my husband and I are book collectors). Then, all sorts of things started happening around us (most of them unpleasant) and my housekeeping went pretty much downhill.
So I finally picked up where I had stopped two years ago and decided to finish the job. I had to go through all the books again since there were some new additions, but the big bookcase in the attic is finished, now I have only two smaller ones to go. Next week I'm planning to start working on one of the bedrooms.
Sunday will be an exciting day for us as we are going to bring home our new cat. I have nearly all the things at home already, the toys, the bowls for food and water, and, of course, we had stuff left from our previous cat. I have to buy some cat food tomorrow, and then, we are ready. I'm afraid he is going to tear our house down, but then, it is the part of the bargain.
My husband has to work overtime, poor guy, and the weather has been very unstable the last time, with a cold spell which is now drawing to its end, so hopefully I'll be able to do something on the terrace, as in acquiring new plants and spending more time there.
I started reading the 1935 Catholic magazine and my original plan was to review it this week, but every issue is much longer than by The Prince so I guess it will be next week. It has a section special for women, with fashions, housekeeping advice and articles about raising children. All in all, it gives a good insight of the society of that period.
I guess it's all for today, I'd like to add that I appreciate all of your comments though I don't always answer each of them. I was also asked to write a post on the topic of double standard in the church, which I'm planning to do next week. Stay tuned!
