Sunday Splits

I really want my splits.

I know it’s silly.  I’m too old for splits.  Splits aren’t necessary to dance ballet.  There is no class that will kick me out after failing to produce a proper split.  But none of that matters.  I want it anyway.

It takes time and stretching.  That’s all.  Keep working, and it will get there.  Or so I keep telling myself.  So, in an effort to reach my silly little goal, I have decided to begin a segment henceforth known as Sunday Splits.

Every Sunday, I will post photos of my splits.  Hopefully, there will be improvement.  But above all, I think a weekly post will force me to keep up with my stretching.  Should any Sunday pass without a post, feel free to say, “Hey, KitTeaCat, where the heck are your Sunday Splits?  Get cracking!”

Without further adieu, the first installment:

IMG_1405 (Right leg front split.  I think the shorts make is look closer to the ground than it actually is, but definitely my better side.  Also notice Francisco in the background clearly asking “What the hell is Mama doing?”  I hate him a little because of his effortless flexibility. 😉)
IMG_1406 (Left leg front split.  Long way to go.  And now Loki has joined in on the fun.)
IMG_1407  (Middle straddle split.  Ewww.  Needs SO MUCH work.  I hate this one.  And also, sorry for the lovely butt view.)

(I, of course, realize it is Friday and not Sunday.  Nevertheless, I begin Sunday Splits today.  Because I am a rebel.  And an overachiever.  And Friday Splits doesn’t have the nice alliterative ring to it.)

Kitty Nap Time

You already know I love tea.  What is a cup of tea without a lovely book to lose yourself in while you drink it?  Mr. Lewis and I agree on this.

And I don’t know how it works in your house, but around here, books equal kitty nap time.  When Dagny sees Mama with a book in one hand and a large tea mug in the other, she comes running and settles in.  Long story short – I’ve been devouring a new book, and Dagny appreciates the quality time.  I see a book review in our blogging future!
