I remember how much Fridays used to mean to me...two blessed days of sleeping in after five days of arising before the sun was up (strike's February in the Pacific Northwest, and although day may break, it would be wrong to give the impression that the sun is visible.  Except for today, when we had the most amazing morning, full of sunshine.)  I had errands to run, hair to be cut, and it was fabulous to be moving around in the bright sunshine.  This afternoon all became gray, and as I write this it is a dark and rainy evening.  A GREAT evening to hang out in The Room and string beads and so forth.

And tomorrow is a special day for me; it's my day with one of my favorite people in the world, Emma Elizabeth, who is almost nine.  Emma is an extremely busy young lady, and very helpful to Grandma.  She has definite ideas regarding the placement of decorative items, and how to organize rooms.  Organization is very important, you know.  (Grandma falls short in this arena, being a "stacker".)  Here's a little sample of they way things are by the end of the day:

Emma likes to create jewelry for herself and for Baby Coco (Cocopuff is the only kitty who allows herself to be captured and loved by Young People; the Young People have learned the hard way that Bella is not tolerant this way), and they cuddle together until Coco manages to escape.  Emma and her mom and dad raise puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Emma has had a hard time coming to terms with the difference between cat personalities and dog personalities.

I think she's catching on, though.  And although Coco is about the sweetest kitty I've ever known, when she'd done...she's done, and even the Young People have learned to respect that.

But for now, I'm off to The Room to put together some earrings for ladies at the salon.  My favorite kind of evening!
