Jean Claude got an early start today. I went to cut back rose bushes damaged by the storm. He came outside to help a bit and observe. He also helped me move more outdoor furniture out of the garage. Roxie went out for a bit as well. She did have a brief conversation with a squirrel this morning. I left for a short time to “go play” for a good cause – Heart for Haiti. A friend had arranged for an aerobathon at a nearby Gold’s gym. Great fun, fabulous classes. After the event I stopped at the Target and bought just two things not my usual 17+ items. Cats seemed to be more disciplined about their purchase habits than humans. Jean Claude has his chair and his furry stick. Roxie prefers her laser toy and her spot on top of my bed throw. There are a lot of layers to that kind of simplicity – things we as humans must work hard to achieve.
