It’s the weekend

I plan to do some Tai Chi this weekend. I have failed to have some routine with this and have not done any since I last mentioned I done some.

I plan to also watch some dvd’s and get familiar with my Dremel mult-tool kit, I purchased earlier in the week.

I may bake, if my mood takes me. I would like to do two varieties of shortbread at least. Original and the other being mixed spices. If I choose to make a third variety, then it will be be chocolate. But it will depend on if its a cool day. I don’t want to be baking too long, if it’s hot and sticky.

And if it’s not hot and sticky, then 2 hours at the most outside, probably chatting with the neighbours.

So a bit of a varied weekend, at a gentle pace.

What’s your weekend plans?

It’s Fibbing Friday and it’s Frank’s turn. See this post on how to play and to link from that post, if joining in.

Frank is doing some more words for us to define.

  1. kinetoscope – give the telescope a shake, before looking through it to see the stars, because you have to do this to get it to work. I doubt it will take off.
  2. lugubrious – lubricating something silly
  3. maudlin – cousin to violin
  4. numismatics – exercising the brain with numbers
  5. opulence – cousin to flatulence
  6. prepubescence – pre-pub drink with a view.
  7. quixotic – a quick exotic drink
  8. recumbent – a posh word for bent cucumber
  9. stereoscope – telescope now in stereo, after kinetoscope failed to sell
  10. turgid – a posh word for turd

Thank you Frank for this fun game.

Fibbing Friday -24th July

It’s Fibbing Friday and my post comes with a warning ⚠️ of rudeness. ☺️ Oh dear.
I took just a second looking at these words and my brain was being very rude with some of them. Which surprised me, with what is going on on for me at the moment.
I will try and keep it clean the best I can, (written as clean as I can, but not exactly original that my brain was thinking.) You have been warned. ⚠️

Fibbing Friday as you should know now, has been kept going by Di, at Pensivity101 and Frank, at Thoughts and Theories.

The idea is to fib a little, or a lot and Frank has come up with some unique words that need definitions for. The words are real words, Frank says. So when I have fibbed, I will look up these words after, to see what they actually mean. Going to learn something today.

To see how to play and if you are joining in, linking back to Frank’s post here, for today’s Fibbing Friday.

  1. Aglet – An old chicklet.
  2. Befuzzle – The mood someone is in, prior to being muzzled.
  3. Crapulence – Verbal diarrhoea.
  4. Deluge – Junk mail.
  5. Erstwhile – Its short code, meaning keep Ernest waiting a while.
  6. Flatulence – Flat wind.
  7. Gabardine – Gabby gabby.
  8. Heliostat – Helicopter feeling very hot.
  9. Ignominy – An igloo cheating behind an igloo’s back.
  10. Joculator – A new form of foreplay, with a jockey.

It’s the weekend

This weekend, I plan to watch some shows on dvd I have.

Today, I will watch:

  • Cirque Du Soleil – Dralion
  • Cirque Du Soleil – Varekai

Tomorrow, it will be:

  • Cirque Du Soleil – Journey Of Man

 

I will also bake some more of those oaty biscuits again this weekend. I will more likely make these early this morning. Before this post goes to air.
I shall make two batches; one batch for me and another batch for my neighbour I regularly see each week for a cuppa at mine, as well as times when we pass. (The ones who have been lending me their dvd’s and cd’s.) His wife was happy to give me a lift to my mum’s bungalow and back, yesterday, so I could let a council worker in to do an annual gas service check on mum’s boiler.

At the beginning of the week from same neighbour, I received a rhubarb crumble that she baked. Yum. I was in heaven with that. I like my rhubarb and it was my first crumble since going dairy-free.

I don’t know what else I will be doing this weekend, but I am definitely doing the above.

What’s your weekend plans?

Fibbing Friday -3rd July

It’s Fibbing Friday and I wasn’t going to do it originally with how I feel this week and what has been going on. Be here I am with it.

The idea with Fibbing Friday is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly or even outrageous, in your response and evade the truth. Fibbing Friday has been kept going between two bloggeres, Di and Frank.
There’s a book theme going today, that Di has done for today’s.

For more about it how to play and if you are joining along with today’s, then visit Di’s post here and link there, if playing along: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/07/03/fibbing-friday-3rd-july-2020/

1. War and Peace – A majority of trying to keep the peace, but Trump creating a war.
2. The Green Mile – I can think of two versions. One being me rapping to Eminem tune, (in your dreams) down a painted green street. Or and this cones as a warning, ‘aeroplane,’ as they call it if you was a kid who wipped their snotty nose on their sleeve. 🤢
3. Dances with Wolves – Me dancing while howling.
4. Jaws – Watch it. I’ll bite your head off.
5. The Wind in the Willows – Me farting in the reeds, to frighten a passer by.
6. The Deserter – Oh how I want t to be one. But never do in the end.
7. One Shot – One shot for Sylvester to finally get Tweetie Pie, before he retires. Oh blimey, he should be retired, so he lost once again to that one shot.
8. It – Who is IT?
9. Independence Day – Let it be every day. Fingers stuck up to the dick heads…
10. The Count of Monte Cristo – I can’t think of an answer.

It’s the weekend

So those of us who live in the UK, any of you melted?
Goodness, it’s been hot and it was hard to keep the temperature down in my flat, especially on Thursday, with the fan on.
A frozen bottle in use again for my hamster, Daz, since it got very hot. Placed outside the cage, so he feels it along the cage wall where he usually sleeps, giving him the option to cool down.
They had to be swapped regular on Thursday and because the ice inside the bottle would have all melted before me coming home from work, I wonder how he would be.
This was where I found him. In the corner, under his hamster wheel, looking because he was aware of me while taking a photo, but prior to that, he was all curled up. He soon curled up again, after.

So this weekend started as of yesterday, with me having an annual leave in both jobs. So I have a nice long weekend.

It’s also a weekend I have been looking forward to the last 2 weeks, after deciding what to do. I will tell you what it is in a minute. 🙂🤭

You may remember many posts ago, as it was earlier in the year, that I hoped to visit Stonehenge. But because the coach pick up wasn’t local, I didn’t end up booking it. (Not that now we know how things are now, it would have been cancelled anyway.) Had it happened, that day trip would have been yesterday.
You may remember I had an alternative in mind, after realising the coach wasn’t a local pick up for that day trip, but I said I would share that later. Well that alternative is not happening either. But even if it was, I wouldn’t have gone because of the anxiety of travelling and also not wanting to go in a cafe. The alternative I had in mind was Kitty Cafe in Nottingham.

So… going with a replacement for Kitty Cafe, but without going anywhere, after giving it some thought, I decided I was going to have a bit of a cat theme weekend. 🙂 Meow. 🐱

So yesterday, I made shortbread biscuits using a cat-shaped cutter. Here they are, first lot not long come out of the oven. 🙂
I shared some with my two neighbours below and enjoyed mine, later.

Shortbread cat shaped biscuits

I then coloured in a cat picture using coloured pencils. (One of a few free PDF cat pictures, after googling for them.)

Cat picture i have coloured in. Cat sat in front of window looking towards, with a vase of flowers to the right. In the background outside, you can see another cat looking towards the window. There are trees and a lawn outside.

Later in the afternoon, I watched a dvd, ‘A Street Cat Named Bob.’

Today, I did another batch of cat shaped shortbread.
I plan to colour in another cat picture, using coloured pencils and enjoy a few of my shortbread cat biscuits, with mugs of tea.

Then at some point today, watch a Japanese anime feature dvd called, ‘The Cat Returns.’ I have not watched an anime type before, so this will be a new experience for me. The dvd is Japanese, with English subtitles and English dub.

Tomorrow, will just be colouring any cat pictures I have left, then watching dvd’s not related to cats.

In between my cat themes I have planned, the rest will just be relaxation and whatever else I fancy doing. I have some cd’s from my neighbour to play, so will probably play some of them.
One I have enjoyed playing earlier this week was ‘Piano Man The Very Best of Billy Joel.’ There was a dvd with this too. Listening and watching, I realise I have heard a few more songs of his than I originally thought.

What’s your weekend like?

Fibbing Friday – 19th June

It’s Fibbing Friday and Di has set this weeks questions. See her post here on how to play and if you plan on joining in, then please link from her post.

1.  I’ll be back. A vampire, for more blood. 
2.  I have a mind for business and a bod for sin. John Inman, as Mr Humphries. 
3.  Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get. A former contestant on, “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.”
4.  I was a better man with you as a woman than I ever was with a woman as a man. Robin Williams, dressed as Mrs Doubtfire. 
5.  I have got to get me one of these! Me after realising what fun it can be. 
6.  The cold never bothered me anyway. Any actor playing a vampire. They don’t feel the cold. 
7.  You cannot handle the truth! Anyone who has/dare say it to Donald Trump, what an asshole,… he is. 
8.  Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings. John Inham, as Mr Humphries getting his wings, while saying, “I’m free.” 
9.  I never did mind the little things. Anteater, while eating the ants. 
10. Where do the noses go? The elves in Lapland, after having a bad case of frostbite. 

Fibbing Friday – 12th June

It’s Fibbing Friday and it’s Franks turn at Thought’s & Theories, for this one. For how to play, or join in, visit the above link.

  1. Why is Spring so named? We all should have some spring coils on our feet, so the warmer it gets, the more we should be jumping about.
  2. What are “Spring Greens”? Springs to help you to the toilet.
  3. What’s a Spring Roll? If you find a spring has broken, you will find yourself rolling.
  4. What makes June 6th so important? You should find yourself at moderate speed when it comes to jumping.
  5. What happens on June 20th of this year? Time to hop than jump.
  6. What happens on June 21st of this year? A day of rest, from hopping all day yesterday. Come on, you know you deserve it.
  7. Why is Father’s Day always on a Sunday? Sunday, used to be Sonday.
  8. What was the book, Silent Spring about? I don’t know. Springs aren’t usually silent. So it must be a mystery book.
  9. What does a balance spring do? Hopefully help balance the day.
  10. What makes spring water special? It’s a rip off. Didn’t you know?

It’s the weekend

Here are my scones from last weekend, that I made.

Fruit scones

This weekend, I will be mainly focusing ideas for Elf on the Shelf for December.

The ideas I have, I will take photos of and then write the posts ready. Those ready, I will schedule in advance.

Whether I will do a post every day for Elf of the Shelf, I don’t know. But mosr days leading up to Christmas will have something.

The bad news for you the reader, that has been enjoying Elf on the Shelf in the past, that after this years, Elf on the Shelf will be the last one. I don’t plan to do anymore.

I have added my new blog email, after closing the previous blog email account down. You will find it on my ‘about me’ page.

I have kept it a neutral name for my blog email, with not knowing the future of this blog, here, at WordPress. Should I end up leaving in years to come for Blogger, than it’s an email I can use there, when starting off a new blog, which would also have a new name.

On both my days, over the weekend, I plan to watch a couple of dvd’s from the early evening.

So this is my weekend. What’s yours?
