G was feeling poorly this morning and was still asleep when I got back, but I couldn't help it and dug in:
Pumpernickel bagel, Tofutti cream cheese, cucumber, red onion, and black pepper. With black tea. Yes, and thank you. Has anyone perfected gluten-free bagels yet?
I did have a semblance of a lunch after this.
Raw kale salad (same as yesterday's) with tempeh and a tahini-sriracha sauce. But that was really only to pass the time until I could bake brunch, part II:
Coffee Cake from Vegan Brunch. Oh yes.
I guess the brunch-y food today reflected the mood around here. My parents left to visit my sister in Spain today, so their cat is staying with us for 9 days. I'm glad to have today and tomorrow off so that Haxan (my cat) and Samson (theirs) can get acclimated. She used to live with me at the folks' house but we stayed mostly on the top floor. I don't know how well Hax and Sammy ever got acquainted. He's an old, sleepy, shy baby and she...well, she runs this town.
She is not happy with the sitch. Check out these two photos G took:
I know some of you have multiple cats - and even multiple species - in the house. How long did it take for the pets to get used to each other? And how much danger do you think they actually pose for the other? I can't stay home all the time to make sure they aren't fighting! I'm also a little afraid of them "acting out" and peeing all over the place. Although, for now, Samson won't come out of his cage so I guess that won't be a problem. I feel so badly for them both!
Anyway. Hope you all are enjoying the long weekend. I'm off to eat more greens and less cake.
