Spoons

So. Cats.

Lucy is an Oriental Shorthair, which means she has very fine, short hair, and is consequently cold all the damn time. Every day, she nags and whines until I put some blankets (That Girl’s old baby blankets) on the bed, so that she can crawl in and sleep the day away in warmth and comfort.

Duncan, who is as large as a mid-sized car, as furry as a bear, and a Pretty Pretty Princess, was getting a little jealous of Lucy’s preferential treatment.

And so it was, the other day, when I walked into the bedroom to find Duncan snuggling up to the bed lump that is Lucy, the big spoon to her little spoon.

P1020804No word on whether or not Lucy approved. Mind you, Duncan’s other attempts to snuggle in the past resulted in him flopping his incredible bulk ON TOP OF the sleeping Lucy, hogging ALL the blankets and thereby causing scrambling cats and flying blankets and wails of protest and no end of upset and tattling from offended parties. So I suppose the fact that she remained, unsquashed, is progress.

 

Saturday Smile: Neutral Corners

Hullo again!

It’s been, once again, busy times here at the House of Peevish. After appointments and work stress and colds and aches-and-pains and all the rest, we are tired. Even Stinkerbelle has been feeling just Up. To. Here. and tired.

So, since the weather calls for “a mixed bag of snow, ice pellets, and freezing drizzle for Southern Ontario this weekend”, we have decided it is a good weekend to stay home, stay in, stay comfy, and relax. And that means, we will all go to our neutral corners and do our own things.

BDH is playing shoot-’em-up games on his computer. I am sitting in front of the faux fire listening to podcasts/watching costume dramas and knitting. And That Girl is having a jammie day and lounging around watching cartoons.

(Note that she could watch TV and sit on the sofa if she wanted to. But her bed is comfy and has the added bonus of blankets and stuffed-animal friends and nap-ability. So that is her neutral corner. I can’t knit while lying down, or I would totally opt for that, too.)

Tomorrow, maybe we’ll be more inspired. But today, we relax.
