Things have been a bit crazy around these parts recently. First there was the breakup, which was about as unpleasant as you'd expect. (Thank you all so much for your kind comments on Facebook. I am so grateful.) Then, there was my coping mechanism of organizing every closet, drawer, and cupboard in my apartment, eating all the chocolate I could lay hands on, and watching Under the Tuscan Sun repeatedly.
Fortunately, I soon had a distraction. My cousin Anna has been traveling around working on organic farms, and she found her way up to Tacoma a couple weeks ago. She stayed with me for a few days before heading off to another farm, and Melly was thrilled to pieces to make a new friend. Anna will be staying around Washington for a while, so hopefully she'll have another opportunity to lavish Melly with attention. And I'm rather enjoying having another family member nearby (I have an aunt and uncle in Seattle; the rest of the family is spread out east of the Rockies.)
And then I traveled to Houston for my sister's college graduation this weekend.
So, now you're up to speed. Unfortunately, I had to delete some cat photos off my camera to make room for more graduation photos, but I do have some phone pictures of the last week or so that I can share. Here are a few of Melly and her buddy Anna:
Have I mentioned that Melly has a thing for sniffing armpits? It's odd.
All together now: awwwwww.
