A "petit cadeau" for Mother's Day...
Did I awake to a breakfast tray filled with softly coddled eggs, freshly buttered brioche and fresh fruit? Nah, that was in my dreams.
I awoke to my usual routine.. scooping a "petit cadeau" from the cats' litter box. I grumbled as I scooped, lamenting that even today I had to perform this odious chore, as nobody else will even consider it (although I have been letting Izzy know he may take over the privilege when he is 12).
The rest of the morning was a flurry of preparation for Grandpa's 100th which we were off to celebrate so I gladly dispensed with all thoughts of litter boxes.
Until our return home at the end of the day, when I found the above, waiting in our stairwell. What could be a more fitting surprise! Two large boxes of kitty litter. At least someone* thought to bring me a gift on Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day to me! Hope there was more than kitty litter in store for the other Mamas out there!
I called my friend Y. to thank her for dropping off our monthly supply of kitty litter. She picked the perfect occasion.
