Another Day, Another Laundry Pile

Everyday isn’t laundry day in my house, though sometimes it sure does feel like it. I don’t mind doing the laundry, though. This is my first apartment with an in-unit washer and dryer, and they’re both brand new and awesome. For the first time in my adult life, I don’t have to hunt for quarters any time I need clean underwear, and the dryer actually DRIES my clothes. It’s revolutionary, I tell you.

Of course, we all know who absolutely adores laundry day – the gorgeous Miss Isabel. She’s always happiest when towels are part of the mix, but earlier today I was on a roll, and thoughtlessly unloaded and folded a dryer’s worth of towels quicker than she could make it to the bedroom to come play. Realizing my mistake a few minutes later, I threw a couple of the clean towels in with the next load of things to dry, so she could still enjoy a good snuggle. I’m such a sucker, but as you can see, it was totally worth it.

"Mmm...so toasty warm!"

"Seriously Mum, this is the best ever..."

"I'd invite you to share, but you see, it's such a small pile. It's really only big enough for one of us."

"Seriously - you're not going to fit. Especially not with that black box thing strapped to your head."

"Oh, all right, you can come play too!"

And much cuddling and purring ensued.

The End.

      Just the extra towels, unfortunately – the rest of the laundry was completely necessary for me to not alarm people in public πŸ™‚

      She just gets so happy playing in the laundry pile that I couldn’t NOT give her her favorite part. Izzy’s not a particularly kitten-ish cat (unlike her brother, who is always up to something catastrophic) so it’s always magical seeing her acting playful. Plus, I can’t help but be like a pageant mom with my camera once she does start being adorable, lol!

    Ahhh… There’s nothing better than towels right out of the dryer… Except maybe snacking on Tillamook medium cheddar while snuggling in those towels. Especially if I were snacking on that cheese in the warm towels under the Christmas tree. With the lights twinkling… I wonder if that request might be pushing it a little, though… At any rate, towels right out of the dryer are fantastic!

      Isabel approves of the entire plan, but suggests brie might be a more appropriate choice, given the decadence of the moment. She’s become quite a snob in her old age. Next thing we know she’ll be requesting an upgrade to Egyptian cotton…

        I’m a bit of a cheese snob myself, and I insist on Tillamook medium cheddar. Thinly slices, no chunks. But I agree whole-heartedly about the Egyptian cotton upgrade. My human has Eqyptian cotton sheets, and they’re so soft and comfy!
