So I guess today I am all about being a cat. I must be channeling some feline energy.
I have a very active mind, which, unfortunately for me tends to be active somewhere around 3 in the morning. Apparently my brain wants to be nocturnal when my body does not. I also don't really sleep in. combine that with being over-tired and you have a 5 year old, am I right? At least that's how it feels to me in terms of dealing with life when I haven't slept enough.
So, today being beautifully balmy and sunny, I decided to take a hint from what now seems to be our new outdoor kitty (she chose us, for now at least). I brought my yoga mat out onto the deck, accompanied by a book, sketchbook, pens and watercolors and decided to just sit in the sun and rotate reading, painting and sun napping this afternoon. It has been the most blissful idea I have had all week.
And look who showed up all ready to chat and snuggle!
