monday miscellany, with photos

July 13th, 2009 by erin

Went for a twilight walk last night in this oddly gorgeous weather. Met a black cat who liked pets on the head. Hadn’t met a black cat in Salem before, though we’ve seen a couple. This one was sweet and liked having his picture taken.

Have all sorts of things to do this week. The tarot knights are in progress, sitting on the workbench in blurry shades of grey. I have a huge stack of books to read that will get taller when my box of birthday books from Amazon arrives. And lots of writing to do. But not this Friday’s flax-golden tale, that’s already finished.

I wrote out a to-do list, something I don’t do nearly as often as I should. It is manageable, I think, and doesn’t look as daunting all typed up as it seemed in my head.

I’m also listening to all of my Tori Amos, in order. According to iTunes we have 1.2 days worth of Tori. The boy started it yesterday as cleaning music, and I’m about halfway through The Beekeeper now. Getting very jazzed to see her in August.

    Oh, sweet kitty! (We met a very lovely very “pet me” black cat on Saturday night. I did NOT want to leave him on the sidewalk – I wanted to bring his purring self home with us – but he seemed very content.)

    That’s a lovely shot across the water! And a clever cat, too: “If I stand just…here, you’ll be able to catch me against the sky. Go on!” :-)

    Hee, that’s a lot of Tori! Hmm, I just checked, and I only seem to have put one of her albums onto iTunes. I should fix that!

    This kitty was, believe it or not, more or less in his own backyard. We met his person and another (camera shy!) black cat. Gorgeous house right by the water.

    I’m still not through all the Tori! I’m mid-way through the live recordings of the concerts we went to in Oct ’07.
