    Stubbornness is a much maligned quality.

I spent an hour with a lap full of cat.

 

BTW, a moving pen is a near-irresistible lure to a pounce-happy kitten.  In other news, we have GOT to trim that critter's claws!

I drank wine, ate pistachios and let the tears fall.

I spent the day at my local botanical garden, had a lovely lunch, and did a couple great sketches!

Instead of cleaning my house this afternoon, or getting ahead on homework, or any other number of things I should be doing...

 

I did the bare minimum required to sustain a functional household (made cereal, did dishes) and then sat on my behind on my couch, posting on here and sewing on a non-essential project. I've been chillaxing since 4pm with no plans for significant further productivity.

I stayed outside as much as possible.  It was a perfect October day, golden sun and the sky too blue to be real.  I splurged on Burger King, and bought myself 3 CDs from a music and games shop. 

 

It was a lovely day.

I am about to go to be early because I am beyond tired.  I can't wait to get under the covers.

A guy (who I've seen on the bus many times) boarded the bus I was on, shouting into his phone, clearly having a breaking-up level argument with his girlfriend.  He then sat directly behind me.

 

So why am I putting this in "What Did You Do For You Today"?  My reaction to said guy.

 

I got off the bus.  It didn't matter when I got home, and I figured it highly unlikely that he would somehow materialize on the next bus I caught. So I bailed, leaving him to stew in his negativity.   It was a long wait, but I bought a soda and enjoyed sitting in the sunshine.  It was, all things considered, a pleasant couple of hours.  MUCH nicer than spending the whole ride downtown listening to him yell and plead by turns!

 

So yeah.  I got off the bus waaaaaaaaaay before my stop, drank a soda, and enjoyed the sun.  Nice.  :)

I called the human trafficking resource center 1 hour from here to try and find a doctor who can handle my health history/needs in a respectful manner.
