You’re a DIY geek when you wake up at 7 a.m. on your day off to start refinishing a chest of drawers. Personally, I think sanding, wood filling, sanding, wiping down, unscrewing, wood gluing, and priming is way better than chopping, peeling and roasting on this Thanksgiving Day. What I am currently thankful for is the fact that I currently have this luxury since all I have to do today is show up at a family members house with a bundt cake at 5 o’clock. Not too shabby, right?
If I can keep up any semblance of momentum today, I hope to get two coats of primer on the chest today. But that is hard to do when you’re distracted by the cutie outdoor cat that is turning into an adopted member of the family.
Meet Benedict, Benny for short. He’s an outdoor cat that belongs to someone, although, we haven’t quite figured out who the owners are just yet. He may be the sweetest cat on the planet (Sorry Columbia, we still love you more!) , and has the greatest disposition. He loves being held, and sleeping in our laps. Definitely not your average outdoor feral cat. Clearly in the picture above, he wants to come inside. He has managed to run in the house just once on a day I was bringing in laundry from the garage. A fairly traumatizing experience for all parties involved. He made it into the house, booked it to the living room with Columbia following, hissing like a freak. She was not a happy camper at all about our little intruder. Once Benny realized “Heck no! I’m not staying here” , he ran to the same door he came in from, looked at me like I was taking an eternity to let him out and bolted. Columbia has never been the same since. Clearly, they are not meant to be brother and sister. But that won’t stop me from referring to him as my adopted son.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving to all! Enjoy the day, and don’t throw up!
Love, J and A
P.S – We don’t actually know if the cat has a name, but we thought Benedict was appropriate. Leave it to me to name it after a Shakespeare character.
