I was so generally out of it last night that I went to the airport to pick up my houseguest ... a day early.

I feel better today, honest. I'm almost coherent.

I did just miss being able to pick up the earthly remains of Maya at the Vet's today. I sort of had a "Bad human" moment, but it's one of those things. She is not what she once was. I hope the weather is as nice tomorrow (by the signs it should be) and I will parade the box through the house and yard, and then say a few things. I have the text of the psalm that so caused me to lose it the day after she died, and the "Cat Jeoffry" portion of _Jubilate Agno_ printed out. I'll say as much of them as I can stand.

I seem to not be able to find the copy of the famous Queen of the Savannah picture at the moment, which bugged me, but I did find some shots I apparently got in the same session, and put them up on the ledge. When I get organized enough to ask cat_herder to print me the best pix from my online copies, those will go up. (It was an interesting This is Your Life venture ... soc.singles trips, Sean's baptism, a lot of weddings, all those trips to Seattle ... actually took me a while to find a pic of Maya, I was surprised given the film I burned on her.)

Love the Queen of the Savannah pic. Maya looks very similar to my Alma, who passed away in February after 15 years of loving companionship. I still feel like a bad human, as I haven't laid her to rest yet. I'm still trying to select a marker and the place in the yard where I'm going to bury her ashes isn't ready yet.

But I still feel guilty when I was past the den and see her box . I didn't take nearly enough pictures of her - so I've started to overcompensate with Gustav and Gertie, of course. The joy of digital cameras!

Tortie girl! *squee*

I'm so sorry to hear about Alma, but I will say ... if she liked hanging out in the den or if it's a position of Respect don't worry about the hole thing.

It will probably take me that long to do a hole - planting things in the summer is a bad idea locally. But I shall, as I have some consecrated oil (on a cotton puff) that really should go in the ground.
