Today Bucket is nine years old.

Last year on Bucket’s birthday it was snowing.

Today it is almost summer-warm outside. I hope she doesn’t find that confusing.

She spent most of her birthday asleep on the bed, and was not really into birthday photos.



She was more interested in birthday tummy rubs, which she got, of course.


In non-kitten birthday news, there is not much news. I am still behind on emails and such. I am working on all sorts of things including that blog post about writing and busyness and non-writing things involved in this whole writer gig. I am also trying to be nice to myself and drink tea and maybe actually have time to write, which would be nifty.

Mostly right now I am all about bright blossoming things with open windows and new sandals. Looking curiously at the sunshine and wondering what wonders springtime will bring.

And my desk chair just broke. I can blame Mercury retrograde for that, right?

Oh goodness, that may be the most adorable kitten I’ve ever seen. Happy birthday, Bucket!

Aw, Bucket looks like the cat that lives in the house I’m trying to buy. Every time I’m over there I spend more time taking pictures of him than of the house… sadly, he doesn’t come as part of the purchase. Also, I’m blaming everything on Mercury retrograde, so I think you should too!

Maybe it’s time for a new, vintage, funky chair? Chairs are like sandals. New and interesting ones can refresh one’s whole outlook on life, so long as they’re comfortable.

Happy (belated) birthday, Bucket. Got a nine year old of my own who looks like a black version of Bucket. Spends a great deal of his time upside down, as well. Not a bad way to view the world, I guess.

Happy belated birthday, Bucket! It’s so funny you should mention the Mercury retrograde, Erin, because I was just wondering there was one and whether it was responsible for my trusty radio deciding to be cranky this yesterday! *laughs* I am glad to see I am not alone on the Mercury retrograde front and that you know what it means! ^_^
