Hurray for days off!

Shepherd's Pie, Maple Cookies, and Happy Cats

Without really meaning to, we've been working 7 days a week now for quite some time. When you're in charge of running your own business, there always seems to be an endless list of things to do! But we finally decided to take a day off yesterday and actually stay home–a dreamy concept that turned out to be a pretty great thing.

We were able to play with our 2 adorable kitties, who (due to the fact that we're never home? Can't be!) in the past couple weeks have both gotten sick AND gotten fleas, but now seem to be better thanks to new food and those magical flea-killing drops from the pet store.

We also read the newspaper, cleaned our apartment, cooked comfort food, baked cookies, listened to oldies on the radio, and Derek even managed to sneak in a nap!

A delightful day indeed. Now, back to work!

jessamynit, what a wonderful idea to capture with (your) photography an L&D 'day off'. No one would do better for the project than you, dear one!

Your photos are art art art - and emotion - and compositional brilliance.

No brag, just fact.
