I’m running on a new schedule (sort of) starting this week and so I’m little off my game. I didn’t want to miss a day torturing you with my mundane life, so here is a gratuitous cat picture.
I was attempting to work on a new version of that brochure and she kept laying on top of it or getting in front of it so I couldn’t see the information I needed. I think she wanted snuggles to make up for the traumatizing experience she endured earlier of getting her toenails clipped and being brushed. We attempted to trim Nanook’s toenails, but about 3 claws in and she was growling, spitting, and biting. I may have to take her to the vet and have it done there. (Last time, it took the vet, 2 techs, and myself to do her claws…)
At some point I’ll show you actual yarn content. I’ve got several things on the needles in various stages of completion. January startitis is in full swing, but I’m trying to keep it under control. (HAH!)
I’m starting the new year out right. Tea on the couch with a sleeping dog and a warm heater at my feet.
We stayed up just late enough to ring in the new year in style. And by style, I mean in our PJs, in bed, and half asleep. I fell asleep to the sound of small fireworks going off in the neighborhoods around us and slept in until nearly 10am. My darling husband brought me coffee and breakfast in bed to top everything off.
I’ve puttered around a bit this morning, adding shelves to part of the new storage cupboard (more on that later). I know you’re not supposed to wash or clean anything on New Year’s Day (superstition and whatnot), but I’m not one for those sorts of things. If I get up the energy later on, I’m going to tidy the kitchen, put clean sheets on the bed, and maybe even make sure I have clean clothes for work tomorrow. But for now, I’m just enjoying sitting in my warm house, admiring the new laminate floors (more on that later, too), and drinking tea. Even a cat butt in the face can’t ruin this moment for me.
Hope your holiday is warm and happy. I’d post something more meaningful, but we’re busy playing Nintendo games and enjoying my new heater. Instead, I give you Simon’s Cat in “Santa Claws” aka the reason we don’t have a tree this year.
There’s been a lot going on around here. We had laminate floors installed and repainted the main area of the house. Tessa (Grandma’s cat) got adopted out to a lovely home and is doing quite well there. My sister had her baby (welcome, Isaac!) and both are doing great. He’s over a month old and is just as cute as can be. And we’re gearing up for the holiday around these parts.
Oh yeah, one more thing…
We’ve got a little project in the works that should make an appearance sometime in mid-to-late June.
Inara often does this hilarious thing where she drapes her tail over Chloe’s head. I was lucky enough to snap a photo of it with my phone. Chloe is so tolerant…
The prelude to the cat fight.
I should have started filming when she was completely encased under the fitted sheet, but I’m not that smart. Nanook likes to “help” make the bed. Tonight I have a lovely bleeding scratch on my pinky to show for it. There would have been more injuries, but she was a little distracted with the birds outside the window. Enjoy.
