I love paid time/annual leave days! So far I have cleaned, hoovered, tidied, cooked and organised. Go me!

I could have used the help from one of these today but mine's at work, worst luck!

Chilli is cooking and it's fab, slowly simmering for the next 4 hours should tenderise the rump steak I've utilised for this recipe. And I've used red wine instead of cider this time. All in the name of science!

Was feeling a little run down so took some short notice leave from work! Yay! After a nap this afto my batteries feel somewhat recharged.

Anyhow, the warm weather is bringing these little beasties out. If it's sunny tomorrow I might make the best of it and do some more macro shots.

This guy is a "restaurant" cat. We met many during that week but I really wanted to take this one home. One of the most charismatic cats *ever*

It broke my heart when we had to leave without them.

This has an almost Eraserhead/Lynchian feel to it.

I think it was taken in Solihull nature centre.

They look like little planets.

In other news, leaping into Monday is like taking a cold shower with a dose of reality on the side. Today has been spent doing investigations which can be both tricky but rewarding. Come 3pm today I was feeling a little more cynical than is the norm.

In a similar theme to yesterday's shot, it's another Linda portrait.

But, in all fairness I am being inspired in today's choice due to the latest Joe R. Lansdale novel, Vanilla Ride.

I have to admit, I was hooked after reading the first page and I'm now over 100 pages in. It's the sign of a good read when you just don't want this one to finish. Also, chicks with guns are the hotness. Mr Lansdale certainly has a wonderful way of describing his ladies and this one doesn't skimp a bit. God bless the characters of Hap and Leonard. I just wish Joe would write one of these every year as they just get better and better.

On a side note, is it just me or would anyone else like to see Joe take up the late Charles Willeford's Hoke Moseley character? Lansdale and Willeford have this unique and laconic voice which would mesh perfectly to create new situations and stories for this much loved character.
