Vacation Time!

July 2, 2011

Oh thank god. I’m on vacation for the next two weeks. Can I get a gigantic WHEW? WHEW! Holy crap, I am so ready for a nice long break.

Things have been so busy, finishing up stuff at work, doing house stuff, I don’t know what all. I’ve been completely distracted and offline (both literally and mentally). I’m ready for some time to get grounded, rested, do some physical projects (very satisfying), read some books, make some real food, all that good stuff.

So Mr. Kitty has been named Finn. Mr. Finnegan McCutiepie Kittycat to be exact. It seems to suit him. We have been worried about him; apparently he’s having some adjustment anxieties. We’re not sure how much of it is adjustment, and how much of it is a possible head injury (we think he might have been hit by a car in his previous life). But he’s doing better this morning.

Lots of peeking around doors.

(he’s spending most of his time in the art room while he and Thomas make friends.)

But he’s so sweet and adorable. Thoroughly adorable. We love him so much already.

Isn’t he cute?

Ok. Enough about the kitty.

I have lots of plans for the vacation. Lots and lots of projects. Clean the garage. Fix the sprinkler. Fix the privacy trellis. Make a compost bin. Shampoo the carpet.

Oh right, and rest. And read. Make some yummy food. And nap.

But right now, I am reminding myself what NOT to do, as I watch The Money Pit  (seemed appropriate) on our new TV, which our brother-in-law kindly attached to the wall this morning. We have no sofa (was supposed to be delivered today, but it didn’t make the truck  — ?? — so will be delivered Tuesday, so they say) but I’m in a comfy chair, having some coffee, enjoying feeling very modern with our wall-mounted flat screen TV, watching a movie streaming on Netflix.

Happy. (ignoring the wires and random stuff which hasn’t been settled yet)
