Sophie and her love affair with the brush

Where do I start? I’ve been absent for a while, although I have checked in on blogs. I’m not sure if I should chalk my being quiet up to the day job (we are training on scrum and agile, which has been interesting, to say the least), freelancing at night, family going-ons, or just general tiredness.

There have been so many time I’ve started and update in my head but I never got around to typing it out. It’s a frustrating paradox because I want to add posts so why don’t I? Minds are weird sometimes.

Anyhow, it’s not a satisfactory excuse, but there’s my excuse.

Here is one post I’ve composed in my head a zillion times over but never published:

Sophie LOVES to be brushed. I’m talking L-O-O-O-O-V-E-S to be brushed. To the point where she wakes me up in the morning (she’s my little alarm clock) and runs to the basement steps and waits for me to follow.

She’s always loved the basement for some reason. Oftentimes, and not just in the morning, she’ll wait down there for me and cry until I come down. So now we have a routine: She’ll run into the basement and cry until I come down. Once I’m there she’ll start talking like mad and jump up onto the dryer and roll around and start gently headbutting the dryer knobs. It’s brushing time!

Lately she is amenable to rubs instead of brushing, as pictured, but more often than not she wants the brush. I’ve known cats who enjoy being brushed and cats who are indifferent and cats who straight-up hate it, yet I’ve never known a cat to love brushing as much as Sophie. She gets jealous if I brush Griz! LOL

So there is one update. 🙂 And ah, I have one more. See that URL up there? I’ve owned it forever but I finally got it to switch over without losing all my existing content. One of those silly little things that feels very satisfying.

I know this isn’t much of an update, but at least it’s something. I plan to get at least one project done this week (that would be blocking my sweater, it’s a long story), so hopefully I’ll have a more interesting post by this weekend. Baby steps. 🙂

Happy September!
