One of my favorite things in the world is when an animal, a kitty with spots, a doggie with soft ears, rests its chin on my body, the full weight of its head. It can be even more intense when it's a friend, head on shoulder. Good times.
I'm so excited about Thanksgiving. The roommates are gone, mostly, and the house is messy, but it'll get better. I'm going to make two turkeys this year.
All in all, this tea is delicious.
It is very cold in the house, very cold this morning. Charlie woke me up a little before nine--he doesn't understand the concept of the weekend, but then again I never explained it to him. I seem to wake up pretty early but can never really get out of the house before eleven. It is so gray today, and cold, just incredibly cold, so much so that I don't want to get dressed, I want to go back into bed. I'm making a hat.
Being mostly on my own, my internal clock has re-set, with me waking up earlier, going to bed earlier, eating dinner earlier. Charlie, of course, would prefer it if I got off of my ass and took him for a walk, and I intend to do that. Actually, yesterday was the first day I'd taken him for a walk in a while, as I'd been taking him in the car to the park. I'd forgotten about the park that is across the street. Isn't that strange? I thought that the only parks were at least a mile away. Anyway, he's curled up next to me, and Athena's on my knee, so I'm going to hang out a little longer right here.
It was so windy yesterday that our umbrella snapped in half and landed on the eucalyptus tree. Thank god there no Koalas were hurt.
Tonight is quiet, except for some sirens going by. I spent this morning cleaning the house, and then the rest of the day with Charlie, at different dog parks, and a little time at a coffee shop. Pretty boring. The cleanliness makes me feel better, like I can get more things done, more things I should. But soon I'll be making some karaoke magic. I hope. At the Alibi.
Chris is out of town, in Austin with his family, and it is stressful for him there, packing up his parent's house. I hope he has fun with Jeff and his brother.
