A week ago, I arrived in Seattle for the long stay. Â Woke up this morning to a cat’s nose in my face. Life is back to what passes for normal…. (except they let me sleep until 6:30! A West Coast Miracle!). Â The apartment’s still a work in progress, but we’re getting there. Â It feels like home now, anyway.
Today’s schedule: testing out Instacart’s delivery system (I already know I’m not impressed by their website), editorial work, and trying to make a short story of my own behave. Oh, and checking out the building’s gym, since I have no plans to walk several miles anywhere, today…
I’m also going to be setting up 2015’s client schedule, so if you think you might want to work with me next year, now’s the time to mention it, so we can discuss…. (I only work with one client at a time, so slots do fill up).
Meanwhile, An Amusement:
In the NYC apartment, the only mirrors were a) a full-length one on the inside of the coat closet, b) a decorative one hung on the wall, and c) the medicine cabinet.
None of them ever seemed to catch the cats’ attention.
However, in the Seattle apartment, the bathroom mirror is an oversized wall-mounted one, backing the entire length of the vanity. And Castiel isÂ fascinatedÂ with it, up to and including jumping into the tub, then stretching up to stare at the mirror from a safe distance, and then leaping forward over the tub ledge, up onto the counter, to get a better look.
I’m not sure what he thinks is going on, or who that handsome devil he keeps spotting might be, but it’s pretty damn funny to watch….
