I’m back from my weekend trip. These will be fewer and less frequent now that I have a cat that needs insulin twice a day. I enjoy hanging out in a hotel room. I can crank the heat up as high as I want. I take endless hot showers without fear of the tank running dry or the looming specter of the gas bill. Someone else cooks breakfast and makes the coffee (but I do have to go downstairs to pick it up). I usually shop when I’m there, but this time I did more browsing than real “shopping.” I did find another good book on figure drawing on the clearance rack and added two more attitude buttons to my collection. The weather was gorgeous. I listened to several chapters of George R.R. Martin’s “Storm of Swords” and sketched cats. Some of them have wings.
