I {love} my cats.

We have two fantastic cats.   
I have written about Basil and Chilli before.  
Sadly Basil dissappeared a few months ago, but we were lucky enough to get a new kitten. 
I called her Butternut.
She is fat, plump, round. Call it what you will. 
But she is also the most lovable cat I've ever met.
She talks to me and follows me around in the house.
I'm never alone. 
She's like a baby and I {lovelovelove} her.

I have time.

This week I will have enough time to do the following:
  1. Finish up my terminology list, at my leisure (it's only due on Friday)
  2. Read a book (any book, because I want to, not because I have to)
  3. Get a grip on our house (think: rearranging cupboards, cleaning, maybe moving a few things around)
  4. Exercise 
  5. Reconnect with a few friends (even if it is over email)
  6. Plan my outfit for the Halloween party (on Saturday)
  7. Think about things (this I do anyway, most of the time)
  8. Maybe finishing up our wedding album
  9. Spend quality time with my mom and sister and brother
  10. Spend quality time with my husband {love}

Guess what.

I only have two days of classes left.
And a terminology list to compile.
Then my year as a postgraduate student is over.
{Can it be?}

I have a thing for clouds.
These pictures were taken last night just before my plane landed.
Up there you feel closer to God, no matter how you look at it.
Clouds are ever-changing; one moment here, one moment gone.
Their colours are amazing.
I wish I had wings to fly up and spend more time {close} to them.

A little bit of perfection.

When I saw this picture, I couldn't stop staring.
I can see myself spending hours in that bed.  
I will surround it with books, enjoying the light it's flooded in.  
I can imagine smelling the scent of sweet jasmine drifting in through the glass doors which opens onto the big, lush garden.
And when night falls, I would open the doors even further and listen to the sound of crickets and the people I love having a conversation outside in the cool evening air.
I'd slowly fall asleep and dream of fireflies, cherry trees and a never-ending happy, dreamy summer.


And then I had a haircut.

{yes a change is as good as a holiday!}
