It became quite drizzly whilst we were out walking and whilst the cats both went off indoors to lick themselves dry, Basil needed a rub down.
The rain seemed to persist after that and I thought we were in for another wet day.....
But later on the sun started to break its way through the clouds...And by the end of the day we enjoyed some quite pleasant weather... and I was able to take a photograph of a perfect sunset on my way home from another of Basil's walks.....
Perfect end to a perfect day!! Which nicely brings me to this poem which I like very much: -
Grandmother, on a winter's day,Milked the cows and fed them hay;Slopped the hogs, harnessed the mule,And got the children off to school.
Did a washing, mopped the floors,Washed the windows and did some chores,Cooked a dish of home-dried fruit,And pressed her husband's Sunday suit.
Swept the parlour, made the beds,Baked a dozen loaves of bread,Split the firewood, lugged some in,(enough to fill the kitchen bin.)
Churned the butter, baked a cake,And then exclaimed, "For goodness sake,Those darned calves are out again!"Went and chased them into the pen.
Gathered the eggs, locked the stable,Back to the house to set the table;Cooked a supper that was delicious,Afterward washed up all the dishes.
Fed the cat, sprinkled the clothes,Mended a basket full of hose,Then opened the organ and began to play"When You Come to the End of a Perfect Day!"

PS... Thought I would make an attempt at putting up a short video of Basil out on one of his walks. I am doing all the whistling and talking (useless at whistling!!) My mother is also with me and is talking to me at the start of the video. My Mum is 76 years old bless her heart! and joins me on my afternoon walk through wind, rain or shine... nothing stops her she and she really looks forward to it each day... we usually have quite a lot of fun.
I hope I am not coming across has obsessed with Basil and the cats... They are a big part of my day but I do many other things also and I will share those with you as I progress with my blog.
Have a perfect day!!
