This is what Chester did most of the afternoon. I took a nap and brought him into the bed with me, then I woke up, and he stayed all smashed up against my pillows like this 🙂 He’s precious.
I don’t usually talk about religion, and I won’t really, but I will talk about going to church today. K and I go to church most Sundays. Honestly, I’m lazy and always put up a fight. Today, we went to a meeting called “International Coffee Hour.” I was nervous about going. I hate having to stand in front of a crowd and introduce myself. Of course they made me do this. Everyone was really nice and they even gave us a gift and inside was a Bible, a small notebook, and a book called Why Do Americans Do That? It’s a guide on some aspects of American culture, which is funny because I find it difficult in itself to define.
Anyway, it was interesting and nice to meet new people. I have anxiety when someone wants to shake hands. I’d rather just wave right up in their face, but most people don’t feel as comfortable as me with this 🙂 I had to shake far too many hands today and it made me stressed from the moment the meeting started to the long two hours when it ended. I basically ran out the door when it was over, went to the restroom and washed my hands. Sanitizer got me through those two hours otherwise. I felt like I couldn’t breathe fully for the entire two hours. There were refreshments, but I was in no way comfortable enough to partake. I did have coffee though, that I poured. It takes me awhile to trust people in close quarters, particularly if there’s food around. Perhaps next week it won’t be so bad.
Well, my slow cooker made it. It’s a ham with potatoes, mushrooms, and onions.
Also, I have to share the coolest cat toy ever. It’s called “Da Bird.” Chester LOVES it. He goes wild for it and even after I put it away he sat and stared up at it from his position on the floor.
It’s Guinea hen feathers on a string on a very long pole. It moves like a bird and sounds like one if you move it fast enough. It’s very cool and I even have fun playing with it. Anyone with a cat should get one of these!
Here’s Chester using it:
And I went to the gym! Yay me 🙂
Well, it’s been a weird and random post, but thank you for reading friends 🙂
