(Fiona is infinitely prettier than this.)
I taught tonight, so I did not have a lot of time to write my blog.
In a break from working on my notes, and thinking about what
I wanted to say, I washed some clementines that came in a small
box. (We got in the habit of cleaning everything that comes in
the house during COVID after I watched a Marketplace program
on how dirty the main grocery store chains in Toronto are.)
The box emptied -- I remembered a game we used to play with our
cats Fiona and Timbah. We would tie two boxes together, and then
pull them around the main floor of the house making a choo choo
train noise. They loved it, and today Monet who is almost six
months old got her introduction to this game in the small fruit box, and
would have been happy if it lasted all day. But it was back to work.
Fiona did not consent to get in the second box, because so far Monet
is not being polite around her. I'm posting this small drawing I found
of Fiona when she was a kitten in the garden. Next week Monet will
be spade, until then the whole idea of going outside is not in the cards
for her. And because it is very cold she won't want to go out either. Whew.
Have an enjoying small pleasures day.
