The big exciting news in my world this month has been that this little guy - or girl - has decided to live on our back deck. Much to the chagrin of Sansa and Asha, I've been slowly getting him/her to trust me by sitting out on the back deck in the evenings while he/she eats.
We are slowly getting there. And, as you can see, I have plenty of research and reading to be doing while I'm out there, building trust.
I am absolutely addicted to books. Travis has made half-hearted attempts in the past to get me interested in having a Kindle, but honestly, I just want the actual, physical BOOK, the pages in my hands. And an upcoming show involving a culture about which I know very little is the perfect excuse to add to my collection. Uqalurait: An Oral History of Nunavut arrived today, and I'm waiting on others.
Call it multitasking - reading and research for a show while getting a kitten to trust me. I hope that if he/she has a home, I'll be able to find the owner, though having this ritual time to read and be quiet & still has been a great way to start each evening.
