So, I love Pinterest, and if we're not friends on there you should find me so I can steal your cute/innovative/handy-dandy ideas, too. For me, it's an excellent place to store recipes (that I'll never remember I pinned there), scrapbooking templates, projects (that I'll never remember I pinned there), and umpteen photos of cute animals. Let's be honest, mostly cats. This week has, thus far, been mostly grey and unfortunately cold here in Bursa, so I think some cute animals photos are in store for today.
1. This eager looking kitty in a kitty hide away.
Why is he peeking out? Because life is so much better when it's shared. But from a place you can easily escape back into your hole. I mean home.
2. This monotone cat family.
This family is proving to us beyond all probable doubt that everything is black and white with shades of grey.
3. This like mother/like daughter duo.
Proof that even in kitty-dom the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
4. This integrated family.
Because love knows no color.
5. This determined cat and this equally determined chair.
Because challenges are all about perspective.
6. This zenned out kitty.
Because sometimes you wake up in the morning, look at your to do list, think about all the responsible things you will have to accomplish before bed, and you just go back to sleep.
7. This cat who has mastered his chakras.
Whenever you feel yourself collapsing in gate pose (which is obviously a metaphor for life), just internalize this little kitten and imagine your head, heart, and hands reaching forward.
8. This cup of joy.
Because some things are more necessary than your morning boost of caffeine.
9. This panda whose little heart overfloweth.
Because, in your heart if not in your mind, you know there is someone who you love soooo much that you would squeeze to their arm and look at them with such unbridled love, even if there was a camera pointed at your face.
10. These Origins of Love
Because someone will always be there to expand your heart.
11. This epic fail.
Because you won't be good at everything.
12. This blatant show of materialism.
Because some things ARE really important.
13. This tactile monkey and the eager-beaver recipient.
Because when you see a cat you have to touch it. Or when a monkey wants to touch you, you have to let it.
14. This star-gazer.
Because sometimes it's okay to slow down and revel in the wonder.
15. This sunny shower.
Because you, too, can sing and dance in the rain.
16. This cat who shows his love. Literally.
We all could learn a little something from this kitty. This cat has taken the sometimes negatively connoted expression, "Wear your heart on your sleeve" and has turned it around to "wear your heart on your nose," which he does in order to remind us everyday how much he loves and appreciates us.
17. This jovial fellow.
Because why not make every movement a dance?
18. The Gun Show
Because you are so strong. Just as you are today.
19. These juxtapositions.
Because you've got two choices: You can hang on for dear life or you can own your wobbly rung and literally make it your bed.
20. This sense of wonder.
Because flowers really ARE amazing.
21. This Phoebe Runner
If you're a FRIENDS fan, you've already gotten it and you can move it. If you're not, let me explain. Phoebe takes up running with Rachel, who prescribes to the school of conservative, form-following, breath-controlled jogging. Phoebe likes to run like she did when she was a child. This elephant is Phoebing. And so should we!
22. This cat who knows what he wants and isn't afraid to ask for it.
Because when you need a hug, you should ask for one.
23. This wise old prophet.
Because inside all of us is a little Dumbledore.
