How long will it last? Doesn’t matter, you take what you can get! (Knowing the Man, it will be several hours, and that’s not bad!)
“Unnerving Murders”! Just what you need for a quiet, pleasant afternoon at home with blankets and cats. My read for Sunday will be Alex White’s A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe, and, time permitting, at least one of the two sequels (A Bad Deal for the Whole Galaxy and The Worst of All Possible Worlds, in, of course, that order). How about you?
“I got rhythm, I got music, I got my cats….who could ask for anything more?!
I see the Woman is enjoying some Unnerving Murders, but I wonder what Elvis is reading.♥ Anybody have thoughts on this?
Oh no! Has the woman reached the age when reading glasses are required?
Daddy get quality time with the kids and Mommy gets quality time with herself. Win-win.
That is how I started the new year: on the couch, under a blanked, with my cat.
I love that you sing to your cats! I do too! And yes I sang your version of “Who could. Ask for anything more”
The expression on Elvis’s face in panels 5 and 6 crack me up! Goldie and Puck and Lupin are having a great time …..Elvis, not so much. He looks contented in last panel, reading his book so that’s good news.
My new year’s resolution involves sticking to only one or two books at a time! I’ve always had a problem with finishing a book before starting another, hah hah. I started messing with the Kindle app on my Fire tablet, and then I started rereading The Last Unicorn, one of my very favorite books. ♥
Sounds like my niece. Her spouse will bicycle with the kids around the elementary school and give her some free time. She will call me on some of these occasions. Once… she heard the family come back… but she had some more she wanted to talk to me about. She then tucked herself into a closet for less noise. The squeals and laughter when the kids found her was well worth me clinging to the phone!
I suspect Elvis is reading a history of great cat leaders.
Looks like the woman is enjoying her Sunday Funday!
The last panel is the epitome of “Cozy”!
Tommy strikes! And Elvis is uncertain if he wants to be unhanded by the woman!
Panel 7: Toe Beans Galore!
Books, cats, and cocoa. All you need.
Spouses and children are just unnecessary encumbrances.
Looks like Elvis is wrapped along with Georgia in her scarf.
Having a Cole Porter moment….
They all look so calm and cozy. In my reality, my cats would all be trying to sniff what’s in the cup and snitch what’s on the plate. Instead of reading, I would be constantly saying “No, no! That’s mine!” Gotta love ’em.
A Tommy sighting, a triple toe-bean treat, and the Woman is cuddling with her cats while reading true crime exactly like I do (red hair, reading glasses, blankie, and all)…I feel comforted. In a week when I need comfort. Thank you BCN.
Is that a new pink fuzzy blanket?
Even Buzzy Mouse is getting in on the sleeping action.
Here’ s Something for Everyone: A Comedy Tonight
Something all cozy
Kitties all nosy
Something for everyone:
A Mystery Tonight!
A roaring fire,
Nothing for phones,
Laptops, stay back
Time just for reading
And that’s a fact!
No worries of history,
Just stacks of mysteries,
Worries and cares all out of sight!
News for tomorrow
Lol…the title of the book….
I was sure she was gonna be passed out snoring in the last panel.
Id have to be the one outside
Aw, Goldie looks so contented! Knowing her history, it’s just so nice to see.
Sounds like the perfect day!
Not enough time for a bubble bath, Woman? :-)
Now that I’ve read this, I am seriously contemplating staying in my nightie all day!
There’s no day like snow day….
elvis reading in panel 6
OK, I’m actually going to start a comment (I almost never do).
We’ve got the BCN calendar up, and we can’t figure out what those black things are on the January page — one that Lupin is sleeping on, and one to the side of Elvis. Collapsed hot water bottles? Noisemakers, for some reason in black? What is it?
We’ve figured out the toothpicks from the Tiny Edible Cat Toys, on a plate, and of course the fuzzy blankets everywhere.
That song’s chord progression is the basis of more than half the jazz tunes ever written, not to mention pre-rock pop tunes. You could make a Charlie Parker compilation with nothing but songs based on those chords. Before “Lupin Leaps In,” long before there was “Lester Leaps In,” Lester Young’s signature jam tune.
That last panel needs to go on a coffee mug!
Ah, yes, who doesn’t enjoy relaxing with a book on “unnerving murders”?
Coming soon. A Nap!
… until one of the kids has to go to the bathroom.
3 out of 4 cats approve of group hugs.
And it appears that Elvis and the Woman have the same pajama tops.
The Midnight Library lives up to its good reviews!
Doesn’t get any better than this!
I’m crocheting this afternoon, with my kitties of course. Don’t need the blankets or fire, as I live in southern New Mexico and it’s warmish today. I’ll be reading tonight: Tony Hillerman’s Navajo murder mysteries. Yum!
Obviously she could ask for more. A nice cup of hot coco, a plate of cookies, and a cozy fire by which to read.
Masks, Glasses, and Fogging: There are at least two, possibly three, solutions:
Anti-fogging solutions—usually contain lemon oil, sometimes silicone oil, and generally don’t work or last well.
Anti-fogging compounds—If you can find them, but they don’t seem popular. They are harder to apply than the solutions. But the big difference is that they work, and work even after you dry wipe the lenses with a tissue after they get lightly soiled. I finally found one, and it works. It has a very unfortunate name: “Cat Crap.” Available from www.vseyewear.com. Also a good place to get magnifying clip-ons, sunglasses, UV protective glasses, etc.
Emergency stopgap—saliva. Apply to lenses, wipe completely dry. Old scuba diver’s trick.
There is a year-long reread of The Lord of the Rings beginning today (on Sir John’s birthday) on /r/tolkienfans at reddit.
