Blessed with heat and home and love. I hope that you are too.
For the Ragtag Daily prompt: baggage.
Boa Cat does not like baggage. Baggage means I am going on a trip without her. She will sit in the suitcase when I am packing. I have taken her with me to stay at a friend’s. She doesn’t like the car much either, but puts up with it.
I am getting ready for work and come downstairs to this: cattop? Lapcat? Laptop topper? It is cold all around my 1930s house, the cold creeps in the edges. We don’t often have night after night in the teens. I am glad to have heat, even with the cold edges.
I left for work after filling the hot water bottle. Mmmmm, warm.
I think this fits the Ragtag Daily Prompt: skedaddle.
We did get snow yesterday! Boa cat did not want to stay out with me.
In the early morning before dawn
the orchids keep me company
cat and computer as I sit and write
I tried a desk but the sky doesn’t lighten
windows on three sides, the orchids and I
await the sun, cat now on my lap
this table was my grandmother’s
my mother loved flowers
my daughter says “The laptop’s in the way.”
Thank you orchids, cat and table
Thank you laptop, teacup, dawn
Thank you grandmother, mother, daughter
kitchen window blessing
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: pet.
This is Miss Boa Black. I am not sure if she is my pet or I am hers.
My daughter picked a kitten from the pound 15 years ago. A few days later I took my son there and handed him Boa. She was tiny, feather soft, and purred the instant we picked her up. The other cat is gone, but Boa is still here. She is really a one person cat and the person is me. She hates it when I pull suitcases out and lately she has been tucking me in at night. She does love the kids but disapproved strongly when they went off to college and only visit erratically.
She still has the softest fur.
