Join me for a boring, boring day in the life... 22 shots in all

Edited to add, I mis-posted this, but because I got such nice comments I'm going to leave it up. I am, however, sorry for my fubar!

The official start to my day and yes, that clock is right.  Its 3:23 a.m.

First task is to start the coffee and feed the cats.  The five plates are for the inside cats the four platters are for the outside mob (plus one more with dry food in it.

This is my screen saver.  For the next two hours, this is where I will be as I work on my various fics for the Halloween Challenges.

Jenny helps me pick out my wardrobe for the day.

Bete Noir, Pyewacket and Titan

Patchou on top and Jenny down below.  The cats always eat with me in the computer room

AT 5:15, I get my hubby up and get ready for breakfast.  His is on the right.  I get the tomato juice and fruit.  I'll have my breakfast later.

Two of the seven strays I feed.

I also take the oportunity to water the indoor flowersday21.jpg
Coming back from dropping The Big Guy off.  He doesn't like parking downtown.  it's a 14 minute round trip.

My desk at work.  I'm currently inputing all the cast/crew lists from every production we've done in our 69 years of being open.  I am working backwards and just started on 2000.  That stack represents three years of programs and clippings.

My breakfast.  Not as healthy, but it's my once a week treat.
11:30 now and I'm off to the bank.  It makes it convenient to work at the theatre as I also live here in the Venetian Bridges Apartments.
After a less than satisfying lunch and a boring afternoon, it's time to pick up TBG from work.  He works at the AT&T building behind the church.

Dinner is an Egyptian dish of shrimp, spinach and couscous

Now  for a bit of TV watching.  We are huge Studio Ghibli Fans, if you haven't guessed from the screen savers.  Tonight TBG picked this.
And Bete Noir joined us.
And now it's time to read a bit (we have a group reading here on LJ and are reading Harry Potter's and the Sorcerer's Stone).  And did I lie about it being boring?


I love learning more about folks. :)

My sister-in-law has three indoor cats and feeds six outdoor cats, and I'll be cat-sitting this weekend. The number of bowls, medications (for two of them), cans, and crunchies is intimidating! Your kitties look very sweet.
Thanks! Me, too.

I never meant to end up with so many cats, but all of the inside cats were rescues. If I'd had the room, so would the others. Good luck with your weekend!

They can be sweet, but they can also be pains, too!
I love diary sets of photos. So much fun to look into someone else's life.

OMG! That is a LOT of cats! I can barely take care of myself and my grandson in the morning. (The fact that we are allergic to cats does color the kitty-part for me!)

Studio Ghibli for the win!! I am with you all the way there! Where cartoons meet high art! Nobody will convince me that is not the case. My hard drive is filled with Studio Ghibli screenshots. I am also jealous of you watching Howl!

Lovely outside in the sunshine pictures also. Looks like California. (I used to live in northern California--Berkeley and Oakland for years and years.)

I am jealous of your dinner also. Shimp and couscous sounds amazing. I may try that soon.

Your life does not look that boring to me. But I am not at all into the party!party! period of my life. My idea of a big blow out these days is to go to a nice neighborhood restaurant in this area (Brooklyn).
Thank you so much for your kind words and you got it in one. I'm from Stockton, CA. :D

I'm fortunate that we are both huge fans, so it's our go to movies. In fact, we just saw My Neighbor Totoro at the movies this past weekend. It's part of Fathom Event Studio Ghibli series. Our whole house is outfitted with stuff. It doesn't help that our son is also a huge fan and buys all sorts of lovely things.

It is a lot of cats and I can scarcely believe it myself some days. However, they depend upon us and I'm committed to them... or possible by them. I'm not sure. :D

If you'd like the recipe, let me know. I'm always happy to share. I love to cook (and eat).

As I can clearly see 60 in my rear view mirror, I'm not much of a partier these days, well except for the weekends. :D
I would be interested in the recipe, although I usually cook by the seat of my pants, but Egyptian is not in my repertoire of things I cook all the time.

Stockton -- don't know the area well except that it's inland with water.
When I get home, I will pull it (I'm at the theatre now). It's an easy recipe to toss together. When we were getting ready to go the Egypt, I went through a whole repertoire of them.

Yup, the furthest inland port in the country. It's very weird to see great big ships coming in and out via the deepwater channel. Our claim to fame is being the asparagus capital of the country and being the birth place of Caterpillar vehicles. Oh, and Casey at the Bat was written for us... That's about it.
I wanted to let you know that I PM'd you that recipe!
Got it! Crazy day today!! It looks terrific.
I hope that you will enjoy it!
Not boring at all with all your gorgeous cats.
Thank you! You are very kind.

I did wonder for a split second, until I read that - but I am very glad you left it up as this glimpse into your life has been really interesting.
You are kind, thank you! I didn't even realize it until I went to check on something and couldn't find it...
