lazy days

October 26, 2007

Hopefully you can all see the embedded video and see I am fiddling there with our cats’ faulty back leg. As you hopefully can see he’s not lifting it properly so now he walks funny. Not too much of a problem but for now until he’s very comfortable with his walking I’m not letting him any where near the stairs. Last night was his first night out of the cage which meant less moaning. But of course now he wants more and was moaning to be let out in to the hall way this morning. I’ve given him the hard talk and its all gone in one ear and out the other with a lot of back chat. The essence that is the personality is totally there and back with a vengeance. He’s very much on the mend, its all down to him to stop being so stubborn and try to keep working his leg.

Yesterday was great. My brother popped over with the twins. We left Erasmus for a couple of hours whilst we went a long walk down town. The weather was good enough to walk in but not good enough to take photos. At 21 ish months they were great around erasmus and he was wondering between them sniffing them. They were both very very gentle with him. He even sat and ate yogurt near the twins whilst they had a picnic on my lounge carpet.

Lazy days are not that lazy. I’m knitting my mum a hat which is just about 30% done. I cooked up a storm yesterday, cleaned the kitchen. Did several loads of washing and swept up.

I cooked apple and almond cake which was a success.

Also a vegan friendly soup if you change the falafel.

take 1 large sweet potato
2 parsnips
1 red onion.
chop all, the onion quite fine.
heat tablespoon of olive oil in a pan.. Throw in veg
add 1/4 tsp of mustard powder and turmeric powder.
Stir thoroughly until all veg are coated with oil and spices. before it starts burning and as the onions start to wilt, add enough water to completely cover the veg.
Place on lid and stir occasionally until veg are soft and will squish with the spoon.
Take off heat and blend, leave to cool a little if it will splash you. Add S&P to taste.
I had some cauldron feta and mint falafel which were great floated in the middle. With a side of Irish bread.
If its too thick for you, just add more water.

Today we have a nurse visit at the vets which will hopefully be quite a lot cheaper than before.
