See the chair Lucy is lying on? (Well, you can’t actually see it much, but it’s there.) Every morning now, Lucy is demanding that the chair be placed in front of the French door in the kitchen so that she can lie in the sun. She’s learning that if she yells enough, I will do it. Spoiled? Yes. But she’s 17, and a cat, not a child, so no terrible harm is being done by spoiling her, right? (well, other than the minor inconvenience of having to move the chair for her.) She has me well trained!
(Update: We lost our beloved Lucy to kidney failure within months of this post. I have revived the post in her honor!)

I love these quotes I found today. They just seemed to fit.
- Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want. – Joseph Wood Krutch
- I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days. – Bill Dana
- Like a graceful vase, a cat, even when motionless, seems to flow. – George F. Will
- The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat. – Jules Reynard
The vignette around the edges of the photo can be done very simply with PicMonkey,my favorite place for quick photo edits, graphic design templates, and collages. I have yet to find a more fun and user friendly place to get lost in the creative zone for so little money!
To vignette a photo in PicMonkey, just load your photo, click Effects, and scroll down to Vignette. There, you will be able to adjust the vignette’s color, size, and more.
Enjoy your day, and I hope you will find a bit of sunshine too.
