Well, there's a cat on my back, for starters.
What is WRONG with these beasts? They are both shoulder sitters. If I even slightly bend over, Splotchy jumps up on my back, and most of the time starts attacking me, gently biting my shoulder or my back and being all fierce. I'm not sure what this is all about. He doesn't even play with his claws out, and neither of them will put their teeth on us, but brush your teeth and this naughty tortie is on you like a mountain lion, biting holes in your shirt. Sometimes he just flops down and gets comfy, like yesterday. I had to take a pic. Maddie just hops up and kind of nurses on my hair. Please let me know if you know of a breed of parrot cats in the wild that my kitties are descended from.
And I have a year's worth of pictures of Maddie in the trashcan. It's her spiritual home.
Last night I did yard work. For hours. It was 5000 degrees outside, and I weeded and raked leaves and did battle with dewberry vines. I hate you, dewberry vines. I will be victorious. (She says as she nurses her thorn ravaged paws)
Anyway, I rake my leaves and trimmings and put them in bags. I don't use a leaf blower. They are annoying and stinky and loud and I wish no one could use them. And while I was raking and making that soothing little rakey sound, and then the swishy little leafy sounds, I thought that a lot of leaf blowery people miss out on the best part of working in the yard. Hearing the lizards running around under the bushes, dogs barking, birds tweeting, neighbor kids giggling.
That is my favorite part.
That and coming back inside to a 70 degree studio and making this leaf card for you with a cat on my neck.
