It's another lovely day weather-wise. Skip and I put up our gazebo on the deck. There was quite a bit of grunting and heaving but we 'got 'er done'. After lunch Skip and Scooter went golfing. I did some shovelling out of my office, did bills, cleaned up the kitchen, prepared supper.
I took some pictures of Ollie, our 8 year-old cat. He looks particularly handsome and lazy.
I will tackle the sweater for my colleague's daughter this evening.
Skip's mother's parents emigrated from Vita, Sicily in 1915 or thereabouts. We had the opportunity to visit Vita when we had a free day on our tour in Palermo. We hired a driver to take us to Vita. He wanted to take us as he had the same surname as Skip's mother's family. On the way he took us to Segesta and then on to Vita where we were treated like royalty. The tourist bureau officer took us around the town in his car to look at the murals and to an orchard where we sampled beautifully ripe figs. They were plump, yellow and sweet - like eating sunshine.
But I digress...
We won't be answering the phone between 9 and 10 this evening.
