GiST #112 & Sunday Memes

GiST #112

1. I slept in! I've felt a little off and discombobulated but it still feels really nice to have had such a solid night of sleep!

2. Although TB didn't get any sleep last night, he is sleeping now and so I'm less worried about him. He has bags under his eyes from lack of sleep. I'm glad for any sleep he's able to get in.

3. We sat outside in the warm sunshine for about twenty minutes, communed with nature and just talked. Sometimes that's all it takes to relax.

4. I love having this mug from Wawa. I can get a refill of their delicious, eye-opening coffee whenever I remember to bring it and it costs less than a regular cup!

5. All the cats have been gathering around me the last few days and evenings. I'm not sure why I've become the kitty magnet lately but I love it!

I took this picture of my grandson a couple of years ago. It continues to be one of my very favorite shots of Little T.
