or, as a coworker of mine used to call it, S.H. I. T. 🙂
With A gone, this week has been somewhat different. It turns out I have only one cat, and that one only part-time. Zumba has gone into a complete state of mourning, I have to call her for meals. Today I tried playing with her before work, she just sat in her box of tissue paper and looked at me. Allie, on the other hand has decided that she likes being the only cat of the only person, and is very lovey for about ten minutes at night and in the morning, then she, too disappears. They will be beside themselves when A rolls in tonight.
So, with no cats around and no A around, I have made a glorious mess in the kitchen dying yarn. I have some teal, some aquamarine, and then some that was dyed with the end of the aquamarine bath, then when that ran clear, I put some royal blue in. I’ll get some photos for you this weekend – I like how they came out! I will be doing more of this. 🙂
I also slept with the windows open. And left the bedroom windows open when I went to work. And stayed up until NINE O’CLOCK. And scooped the cat box everyday. And did some laundry. And all the dishes. And OF COURSE I miss her and can’t wait for her to come home. One of our anniversaries was Tuesday – the second of legal marriage – and she wasn’t here. 😦 We will celebrate this weekend with a meal out, and I will be happy to cede back to her all her morning chores, I had a tough time getting out of the house each morning.
But I did, and it was always worth it, we have had such beautiful mornings this week! Yesterday was misty down low, but a beautiful sunrise (I got a photo of it which I will share when I clean off the camera this weekend) so the clouds just glowed. Today was equally pretty – a fine, clear morning. All the leaves are growing fast, and the world looks much more hopeful than it did a few months ago! The wild pears and cherries are blooming, I noticed many buds about to pop on my neighbor’s apple tree. Things are late, but they are blooming. I doubt we will have lilacs this weekend, or lupines in a week, but they are trying.
And A comes home tonight. Isn’t life good?
