Daily Photo: Easy Like Sunday Laundry

Mimi takes the drawer and Giuseppe takes the stack of folded dishtowels while Bean looks on in envy.

Nothing like fresh laundry, especially dishtowels, to make a Sunday easy feel complete. Mimi was in the drawer as soon as I pulled it open as if shed had been sucked in but the vacuum of the vortex within the drawer. That meant the freshly folded dishtowels I had ready to put away in the drawer had to be set down somewhere and immediately became a comfy bolster for Giuseppe. Bean is a little jealous of all their special comforts, but eventually fell asleep.

Emeraude is doing okay, more struggles than not but she perks up and eats well and bosses me around for a day or two so I know she’s still not ready to go. When she’s having one of her quiet days I miss her yelling out the bathroom door in that gravelly rusty-hinge voice of hers whenever I go past the bathroom door, like, “Hey lady, where’s my food?!” She always stands up to greet me, and when she feels well enough she gives me a graceful upward-downward cat stretch. Bean has been working on her too, and they check in with each other several times a day.

Bean and Emmie don’t cuddle, but they touch noses a heck of a lot.
