i'm watching the kitties pull some play out of thin air...they spontaneously make up little games, and then...it's on! Diva ignores them for the most part, unless they get too close to her b-o-n-e. today i got out early (yippee!) and was finally able to get furry lovebomb for a quick walk before darkness fell..it's a little nerve-wracking now that the coyotes have gotten so close. somehow i feel safer in the daylight. with husband gone another 2 days, it's nice to have my own space. and my own pace. i work differently when i'm alone...not worried about making too much noise with my Cat Empire CD blasting, or the reverse - having my quiet time remain quiet until i'm done...or a cat knocks something off a shelf. and i ask you - why do they so not care? why are they utterly shameless after destroying something? they'll even sit proudly next to it waiting for you to notice. at least Diva knows she's done something she can't undo and it isn't a happy thing. oy. honestly - i never had a hankering for kids or cats. well - scratch that - i USED TO be a total cat person. after a few paw-less years, and the arrival of Kita, well, the tides turned, and i became a total dog person. so i'm planning a nice dinner-for-one (salad and christmas cookies) followed by some reindeer games with Diva, then reading in bed. it is almost obscene how much i love reading in bed. i just love it. all snugged up in a downy comforter, mug of tea, good book. don't let me kid you - i usually fall asleep by the 3rd sip, though. so i wish you each a chocolate-frosted day tomorrow...unexpected blissful happiness at some moment...and a wabi sabi moment to carry in your heart.
