Happy Labor Day! Labor Day celebrates the millions of men and women who are in the U.S. workforce. This holiday is also the traditional end of summer celebration. Even though our temperatures are still hot here in North Central Texas, leaves are falling from the trees. If you are one of the many who has today off work, I hope you are enjoying the day doing what you love.
Writing is what I love and that's what I'm doing today. Most writers work every day, rain or shine, holiday or not. I work in a tiny office the family calls my pink cave because...well, it's pink and I tend to hibernate there.

There are several good things about my office:
1. My commute is only a few steps from the bedroom
2. My office is close to the kitchen for Cherry Dr Pepper refills
3. I can work in my pajamas or old sweats or odd long skirts if I want to—and I do.
My daily assistants, a.k.a. the cats, sometimes try to help. Cozy but I’d rather they didn’t. Sebastian wants to sit on my left arm. He's fascinated by my cell phone. He weighs twenty-one pounds and it’s hard to type with him laying on my arm. In addition, he wants me still with no fingers moving. Needless to say, he soon becomes disgusted and leaves his post. He also doesn’t like for me to stay up late, which I do. I think he may be channeling my late mom.

Max is our Manx cat. Often he is content to sit beside my keyboard and that’s fine. It’s when he wants to play with my fingers that I mind him being in my office. Then, he tries to bite my fingers to keep them still. Or, maybe he wants me to move over so he can write his own book. You never know with cats.

Jasmine is content checking on me occasionally. When it’s mealtime, she calls her special little yip and leads me to the kitchen. I mean it, she does not meow. She yips almost like a dog but not at all like a cat. She's very sweet and affectionate even if she's a little shy.

From my feline assistants and me, have a safe and happy week.
