Well, it seems I’ve taken to posting some Family Photos on Mondays, so let’s go with that, shall we? That’s Yours Truly, above, enjoying a day of writing at the campus library a few weeks ago. There’s nothing like the library to get those creative juices, you know? In other news, I present you with some birthday photos and a sleeping cat…
My mom absolutely LOVED being the birthday girl this year and relished in an entire day dedicated to her! She even insisted that we snap a few photos of her with her precious birthday loot, including a Zumba Queen mug that Janelle got her. She loves her Zumba, remember? Seriously, it’s a depressing weekend when she can’t get her usual fix on Saturday mornings. As my mom always says, “I just have a certain amount of energy that I have to get out every day!” Trust me, this is soooo true. If she has excess energy to burn…WATCH OUT! It may or may not be a pretty sight!
But…do you know what’s a VERY pretty sight? Oh, I think you all do! It’s…Harry, of course! Here’s Harry chilling in his usual evening spot — my mom’s arms! He seriously will lay there for a solid two hours — during dinner and during dessert — and through two episodes of Criminal Minds! Before we got our cats, I always thought cats were solitary creatures who didn’t really like people, but apparently, I was oh-so-very wrong on that one. Stella will try to come up on my mom’s lap too, but the prime spot always goes to Harry. Top Cat, much? You know, I suppose it just goes to show that you should never believe all those stereotypes out there, huh?
And of course, my mom made more of my grandmother’s famous almond cookies yesterday…perfect treat to start the week!
What’s been going on in your family these days, friends? What have you been up to? I’d love to hear some stories, so let’s share! xoxo
