Relief


Outside of our office is a fair bit of greenspace, including a creek. Beautiful flowing water, magnificent trees, and open spaces. That means that it is also a home to a pair of Canada geese. Each year, these geese return around the same time. Sometimes you find them pregnant and with goslings... sometimes not. This year... I only saw one for quite awhile. She/he was making so much noise, and I was so sad to not see his/her mate. They are monogomous creatures, and will often mate for life. Now I've noticed... they are together again. The two of them. I know it sounds silly... but I'm just thrilled. Nobody likes to see someone alone. There is no frantic noise or hasty movements. They are quiet and content up on our roof. Overlooking their domain, together. sigh. It is as it should be. Notice the dreary, rainy day though. Ugh
Couples
Speaking of couples, and pairing together... and comfort etc... Beauregard and the cats (Disney and Jaguar) have interesting relationships. Jaguar and Beau, (the orange cat)... like to chase each other, wrestle, and then sleep on our bed together. Disney and Beau will walk around each other, and try to come to terms with each's existence. They can be found together, only during those times where they both want me. Hence the picture here. They both want to sit with me, and they're waiting to be *chosen*. Funny animals. Can't imagine our lives without these 3. They have such personality. Each, so different from the others. The worst part of animals, of course, is when they get sick, and die. Heartbreaking. They're such a part of the family
