Smelling roses and petting kitties

Quiet here at work, this week. Everyone is still out on vacation, seems like. I'm feeling like I can cope, again, too. Amazing what a week off will do for you.

And of course, it's been a different world, lately. I've been conciously trying to leave work at work. I go home on my lunch hour and take quality time with the kitten. I've been trying to actually *interact* with my garden, as well. The once-blooming roses still have a few blooms on Felicity Parmentier and May Queen---very late. There is a very confused iris, Rustler--one of my favorites, a smokey mahogany/chestnut, currently blooming. The white lilies have just about finished blooming, and now the GIANT yellow (over 6 feet tall!) has taken over, and has TWO stalks, this year. And wow, it's fragrant! The pink asian lilies are still blooming, too.

I was out watering this morning, and heard an odd scrabble noise in the gazebo---there was a squirrel running around upside down on the lower surface of the roof, looking like he wasn't sure what to do next. I just about fell over laughing! I hope he eventually got down!

Circe woke me up in the middle of the night purring and being very snuggly. I can live like this. It's one thing to be woken up by pouncing, and quite another to be woken up by loveyness. She makes quite a little snuggle-cat. It's nice to have one again. Sasha was the snuggler, while Ming and Hobbes think it's okay, but like a lot of boys, only for a minute or so. Circe is definitely going to be much more affectionate. I need snuggle cats right now.
