woohoo! (yawn) woohoo!
This week has been one of extremes, swinging between excitement and tedium. The excitement, of course, was deciding to adopt Emily and bringing her home. The tedium was a very long, very dull but very necessary project we had to do at work, which we finally finished yesterday, thank heavens.
Emily's doing well. She's still mostly staying in enclosed spots - in the cat tent, behind or under furniture - but tonight she wandered around in the open (of the living room) a little and asked to be petted. This was after she ate and I brushed her coat, both experiences that I think helped her relax and decide maybe this is not such a perilous place.
The weather here is warming gradually, with chilly days still interspersed with the warmer ones. I love it. I was reminded by my five-year diary that around this time last year, our temperatures were reaching the mid-80s and we had to boil water due to a compromise in the city's supply. This light coat weather is ever so much nicer.
