Quite a novel day

Quite a novel day. Today is the first day in years…and I literally mean YEARS, that after I got up and fed the cats I didn’t go directly to my computer to check emails, Facebook, etc. Instead, I woke up early, made some coffee, fed the cats and went into the guest bedroom to finish reading a book I had started awhile ago. The room was warm and cozy, awash with a bath of incoming morning sunlight. I had a blanket over me and my cats all came to snuggle into assorted parts of my body. It was glorious.
I then spent the afternoon with Dan Power – we went out for brunch, then we found a great place to share a few Bloody Mary’s. I’m completely drowning and behind in nearly every aspect of my life – sending out thank you’s from attending BlogPaws / Cat Writers’ Association, filing, accounting, catching up on emails, marketing my books, and so much more. But you know what, it doesn’t matter. So much so, I’m going to go grab another book and enjoy the rest of the day with my kitties… Sometimes you just have to put life to the side and just live…

  1. Glad you took a mini-vacation. When you do that willingly you know you need it! You’ll still get those responsibilities fulfilled, and maybe with more joy since you’ve had a break!

    1. You are absolutely right Bernadette E. Kazmarski – if you’re willing to listen to what your body is saying to you, more times than not, it is far wiser than your brain! My responsibilities will be waiting for me, that I know for sure and it’s nice to just breathe or a second! And my cats are quite happy for the mini-vacation, too!

  2. she had to “paws” the internet world and get into the real world 🙂 Wasn’t a “Claw-tas-phoe!” 😉

  3. I try to have one screen-free day a week. It doesn’t usually happen, but yesterday it did…. Yes, sometimes you have to just live.
