Wednesday was the first day I’ve had off and spent the day AT HOME doing whatever I wanted to do… I never drove anywhere! I walked around my complex and delivered a few Christmas cards to neighbours. That’s it.
Of course, as these small moments go, the day did not start the way I had anticipated… breakfast, a cup of tea. Nope… not at all!
My basement ceiling is made up of panels made to look like individual square tiles. A couple of squares have come down. One of the missing ones is above a bookshelf. The kitten (well, not really a kitten anymore, he’s over a year but he’s still small) spends his nights down there still because he doesn’t calm down and stop meowing at bedtime. Wednesday morning I open the door to his usual cries and he’s not at the top of the stairs. I went down thinking maybe he had hurt himself because who knows what he does down there there all night by himself.
I didn’t see him in all the usual places and then I looked UP!
There he was peeking down out of the hole and crying away.
He wouldn’t let me lift him out… he was terrified. It was too far of a drop to get back to the bookshelf so I stacked up some boxes so he could walk down. His front feet came down but he wouldn’t bring his back legs down. I tried to lift him out again and that’s when I realized he had wiring between his back legs. Got that unwrapped and finally,
He was FREE!!
The rest of the day was spent wrapping a few gifts, making a hat and starting a short story… all of which I did little bits of because, it was a free day off and I allowed myself to do whatever it was I needed to do!
I’m so glad I spent that day doing that because I’ve had a migraine ALL weekend and have been feeling too under the weather to do anything other than some laundry. The sun is shining! I should be enjoying it and all I want to do is close the curtains and bury my head in the dark!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful lead-up to the glorious holiday season. There are 16 days to go… I’m pretty much ready… are you?
