You know when you have a huge list of things to do, and know you should be doing them but can't seem to be motivated? That's me today. Well, most weekends but today times one hundred.
I am not a fun of really hot weather, which is what it is like at the moment. I feel sluggish and just about cross everything off for the day if the temp reaches more than 30 degrees. My poor dogs are both bored shitless because I can't bring myself to take them to the park during the day in the heat. I really need to take them out at some point, before I start another work week at least.
It's almost February, which means the new year is passing by extremely quickly. Completely unfair. I wish there was something I could do to slow down the time (or should I just be making the most of it?).
Have started reading Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde for the book club - on the iPad which goes against all the things I believe in. I mean, why join a book club if you're going to read them on a computer screen? So bad. I need to go out and find a copy of the book. Preferably the original cover art or along the lines.
My little Lucy (who's a Jack Russell) has been fine tuning her mouse hunting skills the past week. We have been blessed with a couple of mice - who nest under the 100 year old heap left under the house from previous renters. Lucy has been outstanding, tracking them, hunting them, catching them and killing them. If we don't get to her at this point, she eats them (ahhh, yuck). Charlie could not be bothered with them, and just sort of hovers around as if to keep tabs on what she's doing. This morning, she sighted something in the recycle box and jumped straight in, as if it were a swimming pool and grabbed the little bastard. I was just a little impressed because she picked up a cardboard box with it - but waited until she got outside, carefully dropped it on the ground, re-captured the little thing and CHOMP. It was all over.
Animal VS animal seems much better than animal vs ratsack or mousetrap. I couldn't bring myself to put the traps out and check them. Put Lucy seems to get rid of them very, very quickly which seems a little better.
Listening to Angus and Julia Stone today. Should be cleaning. Should be working. Should be walking the dogs.
Ah well. Happy Sunday.
