Woke up this morning to a beautiful Sunday.
The sun was shining, the air was cool and so, very windy.
Clouds in the sky seemed to open-up and reveal the blue sky. Excellent day. If I had known better, today could possible be the perfect of all days.
Not sure if it is my happy mood talking, but the day seemed brighter, clearer and well, very windy. So windy it blew the day curtains up so high and strong and made the table lamp on the side table toppled.
Had to close all the windows except the one in the middle. The day looked perfect. I felt great just looking at the courtyard.
Like a body of water, looking at trees swaying with the wind... quietly listening to nothing but the rattling of leaves, seem to have a therapeutic effect on me.
Tamed urban nature, but nonetheless sunny days are here again!
It was also a perfect day... well, I just have to anyway, to clean the cages of HamsterVille as I have postponed it yesterday to do it today.
While checking on replacement stocks, found that the bedding was not enough for all cages, hamster food was running low and then the air pump for the aquarium went dead! Oops!
I said a perfect day too early?
Regardless. The day is still perfect! A minor setback. Nothing that cannot be fixed. Just buy the food stuff for humans and hamsters... and a new pump too for the fish before they start gasping.
Guess I have to make a trip to NTUC Supermarket and Pet Lovers' Corner at Tampines Mall, since groceries were running low too.
Armed with a long grocery list given by Wifey, I braved the marketing alone. The whole heavy load of it all, including the jumbo-sized recycled-paper Kitty Litter I use for the hamsters bedding.
I noticed the rainy days... well, weeks we have been having had resulted in shortage of vegetables at the supermarket. Fruits were abundant since those were mainly from China and Australia, but vegetables from Malaysia were quite scarce due to the weather.
Nonetheless, all items checked and I am safely home to get down and get my hands dirty.
Land and water animals... here I come!
