Moving Day

We are getting our house ready to sell. That means we needed to make Clovie's room look like the office that it is. So this weekend we moved him upstairs to my art room. It's a cozy room at the top of the stairs with a bay window and he settled right in. The challenge will be keeping him cool in the summer since this room gets the afternoon sun. Sometimes a fan in the window just isn't enough. He may get the portable air conditioner.

With any luck the house will sell quickly and we can move him back to the office, which stays pretty cool all summer.

September is a time of change.  That gentle shift from summer to fall, kids going back to school. For me personally, this September marks a change in my status from employed to unemployed. 
"Position eliminated due to merger."  That's what I write on my job applications.  And as I scroll through the job listings on multiple sites each day looking for those with my skill sets I wonder, is now a time for a change? Could I possibly find something more creative? 
I can't know what my future is but for now I remain open minded and positive and savor every minute of my job free days. I begin each day sitting with Clovie with my cup of Good Earth Sweet & Spicy tea and the paper, planning my day while he eats his breakfast. Then he'll let me pet him for awhile until I start tugging at those tufts of fur that are begging to be pulled. He turns to me, growls and scampers off and reluctantly, so do I.
