It’s my turn to write on here again! Things have been pretty exciting at our house these last couple of weeks. Mom’s book Buckley’s Story is almost finished and should be available online in another week or two. Mom is eagerly awaiting her first copy. I think she’ll probably start chasing the UPS truck down our street any day now, that’s how impatient she is to finally get her hands on the actual book. The book’s website is almost finished. I sat on Mom’s lap when she looked at the most recent design last night, and even though my sister Buckley is the star of the site, I have to say, it’s really beautiful. I love that Mom is so happy – it makes me happy.
There’s been more excitement around here. Yesterday, Mom bought a new camera. And I’m sure you can guess who she took the first picture of. She hadn’t quite figured out all the settings, so the colors don’t look quite right, but don’t you love how I positioned myself to help her get such a dramatic shot:
I think it nicely depicts the depth of my purrsonality, the yin and the yang, the light and the dark – well, you get the idea. Of course, after a while, all of this photo taking got kind of old – she kept trying to take more pictures of me, and all I wanted to do was take a nap. Didn’t I suffer enough when I patiently sat through the professional photo shoot for her book cover? You can read all about that experience here. The things I will do for my Mom!
Fall has arrived here, and with it, the new tv shows have started. Mom doesn’t watch a lot of tv, but she has some shows that she really likes, and now that they’re all back on, she’s been watching a little more tv than over the summer. Buckley used to be her tv buddy – she’d spend entire evenings just stretched out on Mom’s lap or curled up in her arms. I would occasionally join them, but I also like my space, so sometimes I’d prefer just sleeping somewhere else while they watched tv together. But I know Mom misses having a tv buddy, so I’m doing my best to fill that gap for her. So we’ve been cuddling and watching tv together, and I can see why Buckley liked it so much.
Mom likes to watch shows that she calls medical dramas – I don’t know why anyone would want to watch that, so many sad things happen on those shows. Why humans find that entertaining is beyond me. I can feel Mom’s energy change when she watches those shows, and sometimes, she’s so moved by the story that she even cries. I don’t like that at all. I know it’s only make believe, but I don’t like it when Mom is sad. I like it much better when she watches happy shows. But I know she finds watching her shows relaxing, so I guess that’s good.
Well, that’s all I have to say for today. It’s time for a nap now!
