Work From Home Helpers

I worked from home the other day. This is what it looked like:

 

I’m more or less sharing these because I haven’t posted pictures of Watson and Holmes recently… but I don’t know how Watson is comfortable sitting like that.

If you’re planning on adding furry creatures to your home, please check with your local shelter or animal rescue group rather than a pet store or breeder.

Do you ever work from home? If you do, do you pets ignore you or “help” you?

World Cat Day

It’s a late post kind of Friday…

Did you know that today is World Cat Day?

I’m not quite sure the original purpose of this day, but I can tell you that I’m a happy cat owner.

Day 1 in our home

10 Things. 10 Thoughts

I’m doing the 10 Things on Tuesday…err… thing again!

1. Yesterday, I replied to an email that didn’t require a response for the sole reason that the sender spelled my first name as “Rachael” when the email was in reply to my email and my name was right there in front of him as he typed. I have a long and complicated last name and I had a long and complicated maiden name… so I get it when those are misspelled, but of all my names, “Rachel” is so incredibly easy not to screw up. Don’t worry, I didn’t reply to correct him, just so that I could sign my name on the email correctly.

2. I like this picture. (Is that conceited because the picture is of me?)

3. Do you write down recipes that you make up even when they’re really simple? I whipped up a really easy dish and Brad insisted that I write it down in order to make it again. Continue reading

10 Things

Crystal over at Straight On Till Morning does these 10 Things on Tuesday posts… kind of like my Friday Fives but on steroids. Her first link up today is excellent timing because I’m all sorts of scattered and I can’t really craft full, coherent posts right now.

1. I feel guilty for long lapses in blogging. A few days may not seem like a long lapse but to me it is. That’s part of why I wanted to post today, even though I didn’t have time to finish my intended post (our trip to Niagara Falls).

2. I’d like it to rain for a little bit one evening this week. A couple of weeks ago when we had a ton of rain, tornadoes and flooding, I was inspired to do a refashion related to rain gear. Now it’s been clear and beautiful after work so I’m unable to take the after photos that I want.

3. Saying, “I got your message, but I was on the phone with Sweden,” sounds like a lie, but it’s the truth. The internet is truly amazing.

4. 

The thing Watson is clutching with his crazy eyes… that’s me. Trying to work in our dining room. He wedged himself in the chair behind me then awkwardly hugged me, then promptly decided he needed a better grip and did not want to let go. Continue reading

Purrsday

This week has completely gotten away from me! I haven’t had the time to write blogs and I have some unfinished drafts that I may just trash anyway.

But I have had time to take pictures! Holmes and Watson have been their usual cute, cuddly, purring selves so I figured I’d share some cute kitty pictures.

How’s your week going?
