108: the guilty party

Packing to head up to Yellowknife tomorrow, and this guy has been giving me the evil eye/third degree/how-dare-you-abandon-me face all day.

We don’t have a washer and dryer at our house, so I often go to a friend’s house to do laundry.  Her neighbour’s have this cat that they leave outside all day, even in the depths of winter, and I’m pretty sure she’s neglected.  Every time she’s outside when I stop by, she runs to me and jumps on my lap or my shoulders and purrs and purrs, and I feel awful for her.  So when I saw her today, I brought her a can of wet cat food, and she was so happy!

If the poor thing didn’t legitimately belong to someone, I would have brought her home already.  She’s really fluffy, but she’s clearly been in a few fights (missing parts of her ear) and if you feel her, you can feel ribs underneath all the fur.  There’s not a lot of meat on her.

I meant to do something more creative than this today, but I also meant to do a lot of things today that I didn’t do.

Day Zero Three Seven: January Photo Challenge: CHILL

Day 26 of the First Thirty-One over at Fourtuitous.com (oh my god, I’m almost done with this!).  Today’s challenge was “Chill”, and ain’t nobody chiller than Cindy!  

I always have this little check-list of friends I have to get through whenever I come home for a visit, and no matter how short or long my visit to Vancouver, I’ve always got to go see Cindy.  (but the visits are never long enough…)

Day Zero Zero Five: Merry Christmas!

I’ve decided to do a fun little thing for Christmas this year.  I’ve taken a photo an hour (approximately) as a way to document my first Christmas in Canada away from my family.  We woke up at 7:00, and started opening gifts, and then we made breakfast and started prepping for the day.  For dinner, we headed over to my roommate’s parents house for a bit of a shindig.  With Turducken!
