Ten Random Lists

I’m having a hard time thinking of something to write for today.  Usually I have each week’s posts pretty well planned out, but this week there was a big gaping hole for Friday that hasn’t gone away.  And here we are on Friday already!  What’s a blogger to do?   Well, if you’re me, you’d write a list.  Or maybe ten lists!  Yes, ten is even better.

Behold, ten random lists (and a few of my recent favorite Instagram pics, just for fun):

The Cutest Things My Cats Do

Cora meowing at the birds through the window

Either one rolling around on their backs

Hiding in the closet or some other unexpected place

Running to the door when I come home from work

Cora curling up on top of the couch

Tali pulling her cat mat onto the floor and sitting on it

Sitting close together to be in the same sun spot
