Daily Sketch Reprises: Minding Their Own Business and Toe Cleaning

Sometimes, this is all we see.

I like the times when they are going about their business without me involved. Jelly Bean is curled, sleeping, at the top of the steps where the sun had been shining, briefly awakened by Mewsette as she climbs the steps and rounds the corner into my bedroom. No faces, no interaction with me, they are just being house cats finding their afternoon nap spots.

Jelly Bean ceremoniously settled down on my desk right in front of me and had a complete and energetic bath. I tried to get work done despite the fact he was bathing on my paperwork and pretty completely occupying my desk, but that being fruitless I got my sketchpad and did a sketch. I fully expected him to get up and leave—but it was probably only my imagination that he would be trying to get in the way of me getting anything done.

    I like these sketches 🙂
    Julie is my main desk”decoration”
    She also threatens to walk on the keyboard so I will often put it on my lap
    and slide away to finish typing.
    I love my cordless mouse and keyboard ;)_

      Yes, I loved the cordless mouse and keyboard when they first came out for just that reason! Giuseppe just left my lap, lying on my left arm, now Mimi is on her way.
