The universe did not send me cookie dough ice cream. It sent me a bouquet of lilies and orchids from Hawaii, instead.



(via my cousins, as a belated birthday present.) Uh, thanks, and also WOW.

It’s been a good couple of days. The sun is shining on a weekend for the first time in forever, and I have spent the entire day inside on the computer, much of it researching flowers I could plant if I were to bother going outside.

Meanwhile, I got my sprinklers turned on, having bribed a neighbor for help while The Funasaurus is yet again out of town. Happily, he’s back tomorrow for a good, long time.

And really, that’s about it. This is the first day in MONTHS that I have exactly nothing to do, nothing penciled in on the calendar, and I am really loving it. I’m off to take a nap, which actually requires more effort than you might think, since it involves trying to convince this guy to move:


(Normal kitties don’t sleep like that.) He is a very sound sleeper. And amazingly immovable for only weighing four pounds. Albeit four pounds of faux-mouse-chasing-FURY.

Four pounds?

That plus ten equals one of my cats.

Enjoy your nap.

Leah said...

I LOVE days when I have nothing scheduled. Hope you enjoyed your day!

Mama P said...

WE had a non scheduled day, too. The breeze is blowing. My house is not a sty. Life is good. Enjoy yourself and take it easy!

Pauline said...

You're going to nap on the windowsill with him?

Guilty Secret said...

I'm jealous. I need a day with no plans... or a week, or a month even... *sigh*

Diane said...

Ah, the deep sleep of the pure at heart . . .

AJ said...

Just loooooook at that kitty!!! So cute. So so so cute. :-)

Ramblin' Red said...

Huzzah for flowers and sunshine and no obligations for the doing!

It was a nice weekend for that, huh? 'Bout freaking time!

Princess in Galoshes said...

Meno- It was an awesome nap, thanks. :-)

Leah- Those kinds of days are just too few and far between.

Mama P- Hope you had a great weekend, too!

Pauline- Ha ha, you were the only one who caught that. I didn't have a picture of Tatum on the bed, but I was hoping the picture on the windowsill would convey the extremeness of his deep sleeping habits.

Guilty Secret- Maybe you should plan a day off into your calendar? I'm thinking about doing that, it was so nice.

Diane- Pure? At heart? Obviously, you have not met Tatum.

AJ- Thanks! And thanks for stopping by my blog.

Red- Seriously, I am so happy for the sunshine. Although I could do without some of these severe weather conditions like last night.
