So that weekend I was hanging out for?
It included relaxation and recuperation. The beach, and lazing about, and catching up on a few episodes of New Girl, and way too much iView for the kids, and church, and some baking, oh, and a trip to pick up the newest member of our family!
She is a 10 week old Burmese kitten.
And my belated birthday present, surprise!
She was very timid and shy at first, but curiosity has won her over and she has the loudest. purrrrrr. ever.
And a cute little meow.
And she zooms around the lounge room chasing pom poms or scrunched up bits of paper, and has the kids in stitches of laughter.
The husband plays aloof, but Indie knows she's loved, and that his lap is the warmest.
I am foreseeing kitten rides in prams. Eden has already wrapped her in blankets, and spoken to her softly the way she does with her dolls, her tiny kitty-baby.
And in my defence, I am not a cat-lover. Not really a pet-lover since having kids... but...
I don't really have a but...
I have just wanted a cat. For a long time.
I like the idea of company in the early hours, as I read my Bible.
I like the thought of sweet cat twirling around my legs in the kitchen.
Of curious, mischievous "help" when I'm sewing.
And love that my kids have someone small, and furry to love on.
And love on her they do!
Until she has too much love, and flees to her hideaway under the kitchenette.
say hello, Indigo.
