Yesterday was a very productive day for me. Let me clarify that. It was a productive day off work. Now that may not sound like much of a proclamation to most of you who have productive days every day. But let me explain… I live by myself and have no children. I may have a lot of responsibility while I’m at work and am productive every day at work, but when I get home there is just myself and the cats to be responsible for. There just aren’t a lot of things I have to get done, so if I don’t want to be very productive on a certain day, I really don’t have to.
Yesterday I cleaned house, lugged a few bags of donations to the Salvation Army, made a fleece blanket for my youngest niece, went to the grocery store, and made a batch of fudge. Then I even cleaned the kitchen up after dinner and the fudge making. I’m not sure where the energy came from or what the burst of productivity was all about, but I enjoyed it.
Now a side note about the cats. Some of you may know how skittish and scared my little girl cat, Tinkerbell, was when I adopted her about four months ago. She wouldn’t come out from under my bed for two weeks and wouldn’t really let me pet her for a month. Well, she’s definitely decided she trusts me. She lets me pet her any time I walk up to her and even comes to sit next to me and meow to ask to be petted sometimes. And a few nights ago while she was laying next to me she rolled onto her back with her belly bared to me and let me pet her belly for a few minutes. I’d say that’s a sure sign she is coming to trust me!
