I got rid of a huge bag of clothes today. It was quite satisfying, but even more satisfying was that I put the bag in the hallway with a "free" sign on it and about half disappeared. Today has been a fairly productive day. I did a few hours of yardwork for my mom in preparation for the upcoming family BBQ/oldest sister's 40th birthday/summer solstice. Then I did three loads of laundry.

While I was waiting for the last load to dry I took a satisfying nap with my sister's cat Lucybell. Lucybell is the sweetest cat to ever walk the face of the earth. She is unaware of her larger size however. She is not petite. She is also not a fatty. She is the human equivalent to a 6' tall, retired female basketball player. Tons of muscle and a bit of chub. I fed her two crunchy snacks and she immediately plopped down next to me to spoon. Instead of plopping next to me, she overshot and plopped down on me with the full force of her kitty weight. It's like being hit with a ton of bricks. (on occasion she likes to jump from the windowsill to your midsection, I'm sure you can imagine how that feels) As soon as she got comfortable we had the best nap ever. I miss having a cat a lot.

I'm thinking it's time to take a class again. I had a week or so where I considered training for a triathlon in Sept, but I feel like it's too short of a timeline now . I like to really stretch my training season out. So I'll pick that up again in the fall I think. I think I'd like to take a class fall quarter. I'm considering Japanese or maybe a printmaking class? I will return to Japan in 2010 with my sister and niece so I really need to get myself in order so I can have the best time possible. On the other hand, I miss printing a lot. I love Sev Shoon and I would like to print there again, but it's so inconvenient for me to get to. But I don't know if I could deal with having a different printmaking teacher after having Dionne. She is by far the best printmaking teacher in the world. I miss her and I miss the studio a lot, but I don't miss the stress of trying to commute across town on my bike with paper rolled up and sticking out of my backpack.

My sister had to put her beloved cat Chance (aka Mr. Squishy, Bubba, Senor Squishy, Squish San) to sleep today after a long illness. Her heart is broken and so is mine. He was just the most wonderful little guy.

See the cuteness )
