Birds are singing and using the feeder by the tree.
Off and on it’s been really rainy or just wet out due to the last shower.
The sun has tried to look at me but after a while hid behind the clouds.
Ashton, my grey striped cat, has had a lot to say today.
He talks when he’s playing with his toy mousies. He has several of them.
He takes them all over the house. Talking while he does.
I have left an old shoe box in the entry hall landing. It still has it’s tissue in it for comfort. No new tissue. I’ve tried that before with the shoe box upstairs. I was told in so many mews that I’d ruined the sleeping arrangements. Anyway, the shoe box in the entry hall has it’s original crinkle paper. If I want to add to it, I have to put the new tissue paper under the old and put it just the way it was. My cats can tell if I’ve done something. Being the Princes and Princess that they are.
The collection of mice will be close to the box. He takes them from that local to the hallway or the steps or the living room or the hallway upstairs. I always have to watch where I step in the mornings. Don’t want to disturb his new collection site while trying not to fall on my old arse.
Today he was mewing and mewing and mewing. I was talking to him. Asking him what he was doing. When I came down the stairs, he was with his red mousie. I told him, "all that for one mouse". He looked so content. He’s with me now on the counter watching me type. I told you he was a cute kitty.
I’ve been having cinnamon orange tea today. Market Spice. It is yummy. I actually asked for it for a gift for the Holidays. I didn’t need anything this year and I thought of it. My local store doesn’t sell it but the store twenty minutes away does. So, every once in a while I will go to that store even though it’s more expensive. Just to get my tea. Add a raw sugar packet to it and a rainy day seems better. Course the cute cat sitting near me helps too.
Tonight I plan on relaxing. Maybe I will read my book. It’s a hard one to finish. All about slavery. Oh why did I decide to pick this one? I’m usually a biography or fiction gal but I decided to get some culture. So, I picked a Pulitzer prize winner this time. Oh the horror of times past, is all I can say. I think in my head, "oh no they didn’t" but they did. I’ll finish it but I think I will get something a bit lighter next time. I have a few books waiting to be picked up. Sitting on my table wishing to be read.
Oh and I forgot, American Idol is on tonight. I love that show. I watch it a bit later so I can fast forward through the commercials.
So on that note, and since my lasagna says it’s done, I will bid you Good Evening and I will Mew at you all later.
