It's almost done. 99% of our stuff has been moved from Shutesbury to Shelburne Falls. We need to take one last trip out there to gather up the remaining odds and ends that we missed yesterday. It rained all day yesterday, which wasn't at all fun, and we're in a house full of boxes. And I can't find anything. And we're both exhausted, and pretty much out of steam.
As many of you know, I'm a cat person. I've had, and lost, a number of cats in my life. Last night, my partner's cat, who I'd adopted as my own as well, died of lymphoma. We'll miss all of his quirkiness: his wanting to get on top of us after a shower or hot tub, his “presiding” over our nightly check-ins, his way of getting “tithes” while I was eating chicken or fish. He was such a relational cat, so sweet and loving.
