Oh, today has been nice. Got up at 8:30. Cleaned all the cat boxes - dumping the litter, scrubbing them out, refilling - and polished the floors between loads of laundry. I think I went out twice today: once to set up the photo posted earlier, and once to get a mess of beans for brownies tonight.
I never really expected that polishing floors would be so satisfying. There's something so pleasing about the sheen, slowly building, as I scoot across the floor. And the faint smell of orange is wonderful.
Then there are the cats. Polishing wood floors makes them even more slick and watching them try to chase each other is hilarious Poe, in fact, failed to jump up on the window sill properly the first time and jumped into the wall.
My life may not be so exciting these days with too much work, lots of self-involved portraiture and a little too much wine but she is mine. And I'm rather liking her overall.
