Ketzel passed away this morning. Not much to be said about it, she was old and sick and it’s for the best that she didn’t suffer for a long time or anything.

I finally got most of the soap scum off the downstairs shower. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it was really starting to annoy me. Had to go out and get some Vim to do it…

I’m planning the garden stuff now. It’s still way too cold to start anything, but I want to have flowers in the front yard and vegetables out beside the house. Maybe I’ll convince them to let me put a little do-it-yourself flower pond out there too, sort of like the one my mom has in Vancouver, but probably without the goldfish.

And now a series of unrelated statements. I haven’t had a cup of tea yet today. I feel blasphemous. Scrunt is once again in my lap drooling and shedding on me. We just picked up Vachel who is going to play command and conquer once again tonight against Adam.

Must go make tea now. Need tea. Ugh.

    I’m sorry about Ketzel, Lass. I don’t generally think about the after-life as it applies to me, but I like to think about the Cat-area of the Dreaming as Zelazny writes it in “Night in the Lonesome October.” The crystal Palace of the Seven Delights, full of lapis and warm sandstone, barrels of fish, bowls of cream, and the Great Elder Cat presiding over all. The place cats go when they dream. I’ll light a candle for the craphead.

    And coffee is much better of a morning. Brings all the fuzzy, unconnected thoughts into sharp focus with a sip. 🙂

      Coffee makes me shakey and hyper in an unsteady kind of way… I try to avoid it generally. ;)I used to drink it, but haven’t really had much in years.

    I’m sure kitty heaven is more fun than being a sick old feline… Bye, Ketzel…
