Things I learned this week:
1) There are worse places for a cat to throw up than on the carpet, specifically my hands, which were shielding my keyboard.
2) My father called last night and asked how “the ladies” were doing. I wasn’t sure who he was talking about, but I was in the middle of watching Mary Tyler Moore, so I said, “oh, they’re fine,” and only later did I realize that he was referring to the cats.
3) The garden just before dark (pictured) is my favorite time, when the light is scarce enough to feel valuable, but not so scarce as to feel depressing. Let’s be honest: it’s also when going to work feels furthest away.
