Vaction - 2 out of 3

Well, we decided the cancel the last leg of the vacation in favor of staying home for a few days. After more than 1000 miles on the car in a week, that sounds like a good idea, though I will dearly miss sharing the place with friends, paddling around Stumpy Meadows, hiking around Quintette, and lounging around the dining table over cards in the evening.

Instead, we're babysitting Fred's kitten Dixie. She and Pixel have alternated between trying to tear each others ears off and curling up for a nap together. They're very cute, and it's odd seeing Pixel as the old man in the house. Dixie is about the age he was when we first got Pixel, and she's full of energy. Pixel just stands back and stares from time to time, utterly amazed at this bundle of fluff playing with his long forgotten toys.

So tomorrow, Rick is tasked with cleaning out his office into a functional space, and I'll paint a bit I think. Today, I'm just wasting the day away, letting the kitten curl up in my lap. It's not a bad way to spend a vacation.
