Everyone enjoyed their naps this week, I’m looking forward to mine this weekend!
Grey is my favourite colour. It’s very versatile for clothing, perfect for me as I try to keep a minimalish wardrobe. Another sign that grey is my favourite? This is the 6th grey sweater I’ve knitted! Meet The Jumble Sale Kimono for the Widow Mayhew’s Daughter designed by Andi Smith and published in What (else) Continue Reading »
In our house, I generally know where not to find a cat. For some reason Shadow and Buddy haven’t spent much time in their cat beds, I guess it’s because our bed is much more spacious and comfortable and has extra blankets to cuddle beneath. That is, until this week.
Yes, sometimes they’ll sit in it for a few minutes which I quickly document with a photo, but cat beds are not for serious napping. Buddy likes to move them around the house when he redecorates. On Monday I moved one into the library from the hallway where I was tired of stepping on it and within moments Shadow was napping in it and stayed there for almost an hour! That afternoon, Buddy took his turn.
They’ve been napping in it all week for at least a half hour at a go. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the change in season, or being worn out by Sally, Ada, and Jemi. These foster girls like the cat beds and enjoy the one in my office and have claimed the situpon by the washer.

This year I revised my planning system* so it has been productive and not overwhelming as in years past, but it’s still been quite the week.

This morning Buddy went for his annual well cat visit. He’s a very healthy young boy and was VERY vocal Continue Reading »
for a happy sukkot!
Yesterday we returned our foster kitten Zack to New Rochelle Humane Society to await his forever family. We worked with him for just two weeks to help him overcome shyness. He’s now a more confident cat and we wish him the best. I think the best moment was when Buddy gave him a hug before we went downstairs to the cat carrier.
Cookie is still waiting for her forever home, I hope she finds love soon.
