Buckle up … it was another one of those weekends.
Just a note about me and Fridays … I am usually so completely wiped by the week that Friday nights are my do-nothing-not-even-basic-tidying-or-anything-just-veg-in-front-of-the-TV-with-a-glass-of-wine-(or two)-and-maybe-takeout-night. So when I have to do running around — especially driving in Toronto traffic — I feel like I start the weekend with an energy deficit.
- picked up canine Bella and took her to work
- used lunch hour to grocery shop (and walk Bella, of course!)
- on the way home picked up various cat foods and last minute things for Jellybean’s and Cookie’s “suitcases”
- dropped canine Bella at home
- gathered up feline Bella and her stuff and delivered her to her new foster home (not far from mine!) When Murphy started picking on her we posted for a new foster home for her. I think it’s perfect! Small, quiet and she’s the only pet.
- returned home and cleaned foster room & prepared the “suitcases” for the adoption event
- drove 30km (17.4 miles) — one way — to drop off Jellybean and Cookie at our partner store (with the amazing Jen and her team!!) by 9am.
- Cookie had an almost immediate response to her web posting! We were unable to set up a meet & greet but the potential adopter went to meet her at the store and by 11am she was adopted. 🙂
- on the way home from dropping off, stopped at York Mills Animal Hospital and pick up a new (Quebec) foster — Rousette. She’s adorable and friendly. Walked right out of her crate, streeeeetched, ate, explored, peed, purred, and played! She’s already curious about outside the foster room but she’s a quarantine case. I’ve been told she likely doesn’t need the full two weeks, but I’m giving her the weekend just to see.
- settled in Rousette and crammed an entire weekend’s worth of chores into a few hours
- drove 34 km (21 miles) — one way — to Volunteer Centre for shift (practically the same location as the store but I had to take the “long way” due to the Toronto Waterfront Marathon. NOT that I’m complaining; we had a fundraising team in the event.
- met friends for brunch
- headed back to pick up Jellybean, as I suspected. So sad. He was lovely and put on a great show of adorableness at the event. Apparently, on Sunday, they put a harness on him and he just hung out at the front door greeting people!But the meds. The stupid meds.
