This post is in honor of my self-proclaimed National Honesty Month (I guess it's not really national, but it sounds catchier that way). This is Gertie Unplugged. No makeup, no dresses, no sewing machine.
My beloved cat Henry Higgins likes to sleep on my pillow. As soon as I turn off my bedside lamp, he pads up and curls himself around my head, as pictured above. In the moments before I fall asleep, I often think how lucky I am and I send a little thank you out to the universe.
Isn't it funny how the little things keep us going sometimes?
That hairy foot you see on the right is the other crucial part of me at my happiest: my funny, brilliant, adorable husband. And somewhere around there is the other beloved kitty, Pip. Again: aren't I the luckiest?
Anyway, I invite you all to share in National Honesty Month. When are you at your happiest? Is it at your sewing machine, or somewhere else?
