My Loves

I was getting right sick of seeing my ugly face on the screen with all those horrific blotches on it. Let's change things up a little, shall we?
Whenever I sit down at the computer, my cat Mindy settles in on my lap. She's the perfect cat.
Which reminds me-- tomorrow is Brian's fortieth birthday.
The cats remind me of how well Brian is aging. He is a cat-hater, but has become remarkably tolerant in recent years. Yesterday in fact, Flo jumped up into his lap and he actually let her stay there for a nap. I pretended not to notice, so as not to jynx things, but inside I was doing a little happy dance.

I love that he keeps changing. I love his greying blonde hair, his clear blue eyes, his strong legs, his broad shoulders.

Brian's, that is; Not Mindy's.

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Brian's 40th last night.
Fabulous! Every detail was perfect in design and execution. I will never forget how much fun we had sitting around the GIANT beautifully decorated table that Brian assembled...it was amazing!
Great people, yummy food and of course Mindy was the cutest Cat in the world.
Even though Alice is allergic to the protein in Feline saliva Mindy immediately ran over and snuggled up on our laps and purred as if she had known us for her entire life...and sooo beautiful...even though I have always been more of a dog person that Mindy stole our hearts..come to think of it Flo was just as easy going but she didn't run over as eagerly as Mindy did.
Either way those Cats are an excellent reflection of how you and your husband's gentle spirit embraces people like a big, cozy blanket and made everyone feel so relaxed and welcome in your gorgeous Home.
What a night.
