the view from Sunday: mugs, books, and kitties!

Still dealing with the mites, but the plague appears to be under control *fingers crossed* so life is starting to settle into something of a rhythm again. With all the spraying and cleaning, I decided to re-evaluate my mug collection and concluded that, rather than ridding myself of the excess, I should rid myself of all the other stuff cluttering my pantry. Result: happy mugs! I did get rid of a few, mostly the ones that were too thin or fussy to handle (no joy when you get burned by hot contents), but the rest make me happy, so they stay until the day they don’t.

a few were in the wash, but you get the idea

Of course, having finished Newt’s Emerald and Finding Fraser (video to come!), I am now between books and enjoying a torrid literary affair with several authors at once.

The cats seem completely unperturbed by the mites and the cleaning… see, totally floppy and oblivious. Just wait until the new vacuum arrives…

one of these things is not like the others

I’m off to enjoy the rest of my afternoon and get some more reading in before the boy comes over.

TTFN!

  1. I have a mug rack that holds 13. I keep my favorites up there. I have a few in the cabinet, but it’s those 13 up top that have my love. I don’t really need 13. But they make me smile and I love them, so they stay!!

    1. That’s how I feel! I had the hardest time finding any that didn’t make me happy, the ones I let go were enough (mostly presents or cheap ones I got for work that eventually made their way home). If I owned my own place, I would definitely put up a rack to display them 🙂
