The cats are ready to settle down in a bigger space. They want more beds for napping, stairs to run up and down, a yard to explore… and maybe some chicken friends (that’s wishful thinking, but a girl can dream). In other words… we’re house hunting.
It’s a bit stressful and overwhelming, but mostly exciting. There’s no rush, and it’ll be a challenge to find something reasonably priced in the area, so it will probably be a while before we can make a move. So for now… these cats will be seeing a lot less of the humans on the weekends as we hunt down open houses and MLS drivebys.
It’s shaping up to be an exciting spring!
Another busy weekend for the humans and a lonely one for the cats. We took Friday off of work to drive to MS for hubby’s 10-year high school reunion, and drove back yesterday afternoon. I’m still wrapping my mind around the fact that we are at this age now, celebrating milestones like this… and in terms of decades, at that. We had so, so much fun catching up with everyone, and the whole weekend was a blast. But my introverted self is wiped out from all the socializing and late nights! My brother is visiting for a couple days too, so I think I’ll take a mini blogging break this week and check in again for High Five for Friday.
But since this is Meow Monday, here are some random pictures of Tali in the new chair.
See you on Friday!
Over the long weekend, we roadtripped to Chattanooga for a little getaway. So much fun (pics to come)! We were only away for two nights, but the cats seemed glad when we got back yesterday afternoon.
I have a feeling that I know exactly what they were up to while we were gone…
A little of this…
A little of that…
And probably some of this too…
I’m just glad the apartment was in one piece when we got back home :)
My parents came to visit over the weekend, which is always a good time. More pics to come tomorrow… for now, another batch of your favorite #catsofinstagram! Most of these are from September/October of last year… which I can only tell because of the Once Upon a Time sampler and Halloween decorations, ha!
I like to listen to podcasts on the way to work, on road trips, when I’m cross stitching or sewing, or on a Monday night when there’s nothing on TV. I usually need to do something with my hands so I can concentrate – hence the driving, crafting, etc. But when I’m not doing any of those things, sometimes I’ll go back to my old favorite Waterlogue app to make some pretty pictures from random photos on my phone…
So today, a few recent watercolors that came about while I was listening to Pop Culture Happy Hour.
And just so we have a few more words too, here’s a list of my current favorite podcasts:
This American Life
Dear Sugar Radio
Pop Culture Happy Hour
The Lively Show
Slate’s Spoiler Specials
The Splendid Table
How Did This Get Made?
(And if you missed the first season, Serial! I will definitely be tuning into Season 2.)
I still haven’t printed any of these watercolors, or the many others I’ve made over the past year or so, but a gallery or clothesline of them all in a row would be so pretty. Maybe one of these days…
