Cloud Porn

 I was going to call this post "The Calm before the Storm" but thought "Cloud Porn" was a bit more catchy!! I'm a big fan of "cloud porn" and have a huge folder stuffed with "sky" and "cloud" photos. All of these shots were taken at our place in PEI - the sky there seems ENORMOUS compared to the city of London sky which is filled with telephone poles and hydro wires.
 I was enjoying the calm of a peaceful Sunday morning - I was up pretty early due to the time change. I sat here in my favorite chair and got caught up on other blogs' posts. However, I now hear Michael moving about and soon his son, Dane, will arrive to get the final pieces of carpet up and furniture moved as tomorrow is NEW CARPET DAY!! Woot woot!
 My job will be to move everything that isn't TOO heavy - drawers of my daughter's clothes, boxes and bins filled with her memorabilia from the past 23 years and the CAT!!
I will attempt to catch and move our 19 year old cat to her new home in the basement. She doesn't do stairs anymore and has lived in an upstairs bedroom of her own for at least the past 5 years.  As I mentioned previously I thought she'd have gone to kitty heaven by now but no, she's hanging in there - deaf, riddled with arthritis but still enjoys being brushed and petted and made a fuss over.
So, I will finish my coffee and get to work. I need to try and maintain some sense of order in the midst of our mess as we still have to go to our day jobs and access the clothes and things that we will need tomorrow.
I'm down to 238 days until retirement! The Five Year Plan is unfolding as it should. Savings are on track, debt is paid off and renos and redecorating are underway. Hip hip hooray!

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday wherever you are - let me know how your day is going! Are you working or relaxing?? Or both?

I love watching clouds. Their shifts and changes are quite fascinating if one takes the time to watch it all unfold.

Gotta love how the last one looks as if it is framed. Beautiful photos, haha. I've been stalk---following you for a while, so can't help you there. I could quit and rejoin if that makes any difference. :)

Old kitty indeed - I would not want to take her to PEI - the journey itself would kill her...and me - she constantly howls when in a car. Its a tough situation.

It's such a part of PEI - being out in the country, slowing down, watching the sky - I love it!
