Another weekend gone...

     Shanra mentioned recently that I haven't mentioned my cats recently, so... On Saturday morning Arun decided to steal my chair in my computer room (a surefire way to get my attention) and since we were playing the 'Who stole MY chair?' game, I decided to get some pictures as well.

Arun talks back on the chair-stealing issue

A few days earlier, got him enjoying my summer bed
(actually, that's him doing part of his 'beached whale' impersonation, also a way to get my attention, though it cracks me up when I realize he's been doing it behind my back for minutes on end to no avail)

Shado in the kitchen
(my new camera is wonderful because I can rarely get close to Shado for a good shot, but thanks to the great zoom and flash, I got that picture even though I was by the chair Arun had stolen and he was watching from the kitchen)

     Sunday was a great day. It was cloudy the entire day, which gave me more energy, particularly in the morning, instead of feeling like the sun was trying to burn my brains out. Also, I made great progress on my 'Power Among the Races' essay and finished the avarii section. Loads of fun digging up details on the ins and outs of shape-changing that have been lodged in my skull since college. Three parts done, three to go!

I was really happy with that shot too. =)

Today looks like the last hot day for some time--might be upper 70's by the end of the week! And it's cloudy this morning too, which is nice.

It was a good weekend; I think I can handle overtime again now.

Lovely photos. That one of Shado makes his eyes look huge! I can see that they definitely have their own personalities. Is Shado very affectionate, or does he tend to be very shy?

Glad to hear that the weather has been okay. Did you get done those important things you wanted to do?

Yes, he has a small head for his body and big eyes for his head! He's not remotely affectionate except with Arun at times.

The most critial, yes--rent and a bill paid and general catch-up of the last half-month's worth of money stuff. I need to remind myself that August is usually the time I miss bill deadlines since I'm too worn out to keep track of things. =P

They are so gorgeous. I know I have said this before, but it bears repeating. And I approve of Arun's reading material in the second one. I love that book.

I'll have to let him know it gets your stamp of approval, then. ;)

Thanks!

If his ears were a little flattened, it would be perfect!

Glad you like! =)

Yay for nice weekends!
So glad you had a good weekend! I know you needed it, after all that overtime you've had!

=) I almost feel like I need a weekend to recuperate from my weekend...

The kitties look great, too! I'm sure they were delighted to have you HOME!

Hope you have a good week! *Snuggles for the kitties; hugs for you!*

Re: Yay for nice weekends!
Yes! It was greatly needed.

Awww, I hope you find some recoup time yourself!

Actually, they were put out it was cloudy all day Sunday, since they love sunbathing. Meant Arun was more playful with me, though.

Thanks, you do too!
