Resting + Cat Snuggles!

This has been a resting week. I have spent a lot of time reading and watching "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" because I have been very low on energy.  Don't know why; just know it's true and I'm choosing to enjoy the down time.

Also, the cats have been adorable.  I got a new camera, with increased abilities, so I've been practicing to see what It can do!



Allistair stays still the longest, so I have lots of photos of him. 

Cross-eyed, lying like a Luck Dragon on the back of the couch!



A little closer:


And a little closer yet:


And then sideways:


 When I sit/lie on the couch, lots of cats do, too!
Here is Baltazar, keeping me company.


Bjarne, looking at me, trying to get me to solve all his life's challenges:


He looks very tiny.


But eventually, he settles in on a fuzzy blankie:


Juvy has been adorable, too.  She loves fall, when the weather is cooler and she can roll around crazy in the fallen leaves.  She rolls over and wants her little fuzzy tummy rubbed.  I have never known cats who WANTED their tummies rubbed until I met Juvy, her babies, and her grandbabies!

Branches and leaves above the backyard.

The babies started out snuggling. 


But Allistiar likes his space - he stretched out and Stephen had to move.  


But he still wanted to see what was going on out the window.


Here's the view out my office window.  There are always Verdin living in that Sweet Acacia tree.
They are my favorite little birds!



Eventually, Stephen was able to get his spot back!
He was so happy and relaxed that his little tongue snuck out!



This time of year in the Arizona desert is beautiful.  It's been in the low 80s for highs, and in the high 50s for lows.  We need sweaters and slippers in the morning and the evening, but in the mid-afternoon, we would be warm in the sun.  Not for long, though; it may reach a high of 85, but it's only 85 for a short time before the temperature starts going down again.  The other day it started at 45 (when we woke up around 7) and got up to 85 in the afternoon.  I think that 40-degree temperature change in a 24-hour period is fascinating!


Something that's making me happy today is this new nail polish (called "Inline For The Crown")!



Another thing that's making me happy is this new bag. 
I put my outfit together around it yesterday (and today!)



Bjarne has been very cuddly lately.  Unfortunately, with his thyroid disease getting worse (and our inability to treat him because he was allergic to the medication), he smells terrible.  So snuggling is nice, but also nasty.

Allistair was carrying around TWO favorite toys at once!

Allistair has the cutest way of washing himself - I can't resist sharing another video of it!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
