My friend Susan was in town this weekend, providing the rest of us an excellent excuse to get together for brunch at Johnny’s D’s in Somerville. Brunch is, in my opinion, the best meal of the week.
I was out shopping, looking for a rug to go in the bathroom. I spotted these:
Clearly, they are made from Persian cats.
About 30 seconds before I took this picture, I had taken another one in which you could see about 3/4 of this building, which is the third tallest in the city. Now, the building is nearly gone.
Makes me think of Stephen King’s great short story, The Mist. Read the story; don’t see the movie.
We have big pieces of fleece that we put on the furniture for the cats. when we have company, we remove it so our guests don’t get cat hair all over them (although most of our friends have cats of their own, so I guess it’s sort of a moot point). Anyway, we washed all of it, and Doug brought it upstairs and put it on the floor while he went to find something to put it in. It took Parker about 4 seconds to find it…

“Sock Monkey so freaky
Sock Monkey has scary beady eyes
Sock Monkey very simple toy
with such big creepy bright red lips
Sock Monkey for you
Sock Monkey for you”
so I’m leaving work today and I suddenly remember that I haven’t taken a picture yet and I’m not likely to see anything inspiring tonight. Then, along come five people on Segways….
We spent yesterday morning finally unpacking the boxes in the basement. And look! it’s the basement floor!
It’s actually in pretty good shape down there; just a few more boxes to deal with and then a few other organization things.
we’re getting there….
This is my friend Jen, caught in the act of taking one of her own potential Project 365 pictures of the day.
My boss usually doesn’t work on Saturdays, but she had to come in briefly today. She brought her puppy, Oliver, but while she was running around, Oliver had to wait in one of the larger offices.
Not surprisingly, Winnie has been pretty freaked out with the whole move. She’s taken to hiding in her food box. But for the past few days, she’s spending more time exploring the house, and she seems to be getting more relaxed.
