It's summertime in Teetsville. Myramains, sister de Teets, went out and bought a big rectangle shaped inflatable swimming pool for her kidlets and they have been pretty much blessedly occupied during the day time since then.
It's a good thing.
So yesterday, while Myra was gone to buy BBQ supplies, Libby, my 4 year old niece stuck her little wet head in the house and innocently yelled "Mimi, can we put Posh in the pool?"
Posh is a cat.
Swimming is SO far down his list of fun things to do that I figured he would thank me if I said no on his behalf. No cat-dunking allowed. Libby thought it would be great fun for Posh. She's never seen a cat's reaction to sudden submersion I guess.
It was a very nice weekend. We had good weather, a nice overdue BBQ with the parental units, and today I spent a lot of down time reading, writing, corresponding, and drawing useless designs in an art pad. I got a new tablet and some pens. I like to do pen and ink drawings. I draw this swirling paisley-like design that continues out to the edges of the paper, or whatever space I am drawing in and this is something I have done always. It's sort of therapeutic for me.
I just had the bright idea to scan some of it. This is a little block cropped out of a big page of this that I did today.
