Kitten Breakthough

When I woke up this morning, Simon was asleep at the foot of my bed. Very, very slowly, I reached down and pet him, then I slinked out of bed - I didn't want to scare him off of it. (Meanwhile, Jamieson is looking at me from the other side of the bed like, "Hey? What about me?") I go to the bathroom and when I come out, Simon is in the hallway actually preening for attention. So I picked him up, took him to the kitchen, poured him some food, and...

The little fella is afraid of the cat food bag. I did eventually catch him and show him the food wouldn't hurt him.

But the main thing is, he's a little less skittish.

Yesterday evening, I:
  • caved and ate the piece of British milk chocolate;
  • had baby red potatoes sauteed in canola oil with diced red onion and chopped up tofu dogs for dinner;
  • had a cup of the fruit smoothie;
  • drank a glass of mixed wine;
  • decided that if I am indeed serious about getting that 1923 crochet dress done by Halloween, I should get back to working on it;
  • continued to work on a tan/beige/white afghan I've been doing lately anyway.

This morning, I:

  • am drinking hot cocoa with a teaspoon of instant coffee. (It's Friday! I need it!)
  • have decided to have my breakfast bagel for lunch;
  • because I forgot lunch and am going to have to eat the emergency food at some point, and I'd rather it not be during lunch.

Hezekiah is still skittish. Last night she was draped over my leg - the way she has been every other night for the last two years, I pull my leg out (because occasionally I feel the blood must be able to course through its veins) and she reacts like a python was about to eat her.
