It’s Friday early evening. It’s been a lovely staycation at home this week. I have to admit I’m a bit surprised how quickly the days slipped by. I did get a few things accomplished but not everything on my list. But I’m ok with that. There’s always next year, right!?! And it’s just around the corner – literally.
I’ve had fun flittering here and there, momentarily tackling day-to-day errands like getting the car’s oil changed and shoveling the never ending snow that continues to fall before finding myself distracted by beautiful, blue winter skies. But days are short here. Night creeps in early and, like a bear in its den, I snuggle up on my couch to indulge in another lazy evening of pure relaxation.
Not to be left out, Fat Cat regally steps onto my lap demanding a scratch or two – ok lots of scratches and cuddles. We’ve come a long way in our relationship, this abandoned cat and I. From a spitting, hissing creature afraid of her shadow to a spoiled house cat requiring tummy rubs and ear scratches I think she might finally like me… or maybe it’s just her filled bowl of kibble. Whatever it is, this may be my longest successful relationship in years!
