5 things that I have missed, and it's not yet 9 a.m.

I woke up this morning in my own bed, feeling a sense of comfort and happiness at being home again, and wondering what the day will bring. It's amazing how many things I miss when I go away, and only remember when I get back again:

1. being snuggled up to by various cat bodies all through the night, and waking up with the Moomintroll cat being as close as he can get

2. the click of Corgi nails on the hardwood floor

3. Redford the Great braying a good morning call outside the bedroom window

4. the sound of the dishwasher to my left (as I type here) and the Moomintroll snoring on the chair to my right

5. Keats, the lovely Miss Miaow, serving as my own personal bread warmer (she is on the island, lying ON TOP of a loaf of bread, which fortunately, is wrapped)

It all sounds so snuggly and cozy, I'm sure all is right with the critters in your care, now that you are home. I'm sure they missed you terribly.

I think they did, Arlene. They all gave me some special attention yesterday, which was so nice.

Awwwww. I love your 5-things Billie. BUt I realy want to know if Keats reshapes your bread from laying on it? hehe

My 5 things are the opposite. Things that I miss about being mobile and able to get outside and be active....
But I have much to be grateful for, just the same :)

Lisa, she doesn't - it's the hard crusty loaves she was lying on.
