If we were having coffee I’d probably be on my third or fourth cup. It was an unexpectedly early morning for me – I woke up for no reason at about 5 am and wasn’t able to get back to sleep. I had planned to sleep in today but, alas, no such luck, so I’m trying to make the most of the day and get some good work done. But, that means a bit more coffee.
I’d tell you that the new addition to my family, Midnight, is settling in nicely – he did have a bit of an upset stomach this morning, but with all the changes and the fact that he’s finishing up some antibiotics for a kitty-cold it’s not really a big surprise. I was very impressed that he went into the bathroom when he felt sick and tried to keep it on the bathmat, which made for easy clean-up.
He’s made himself right at home, including taking over my entire bed. He’s a great cuddler, loves to play with stringy things, and listens very well (I’ve been really impressed with how well he seems to listen when I tell him to not do something, seriously a better listener than the family dogs). We’ve bonded pretty well, pretty quickly and I’m so happy that we found each other at the shelter (I got him from Cat Adoption Team, and have been so impressed by them, they are such a great place!)
I promise you, I’m not going to become a completely obsessed cat-mama, but right now he is pretty much my focus.
Well, okay, one focus of mine… writing is another. I kind of fell apart on the DeDoWriMo this year, but it is something I’m thinking of repeating it again next year. We’ll see. I’ve been putting together my plans for the coming year (and will be sharing them later this week), I’m hoping to structure my blogging and writing a bit better this coming year so I don’t hit the same points of being overwhelmed and shutting down (in my writing) as I did this year.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I had a pretty relaxed New years Eve, and that we held a small open house house New Years day (which was very fun). It’s been pretty busy so I’m looking forward to the relaxing the rest of the weekend and getting myself started on my New Years writing and reading plans!
How was your New Years?
Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend. A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in!
