When I take the laundry out of the dryer, I pile it all onto the bed so I can fold it and put it away.
I did this one Sunday afternoon, and then while I was folding, I noticed a little red head buried under the clothes and towels.
Angel had been sleeping on the bed under the covers and I didn’t see her…so I’d dumped the laundry right on top of her!
She gave me such a look.
“Sigh…don’t mind me. Brain the size of a planet, why should anyone pay any attention to me? Life, don’t talk to me about life…”
She didn’t move, though. She stayed right there under the covers, under the laundry. She seems to be braver in the new apartment; the old Angel would have run away when all the clothes buried her.
Before I’d come along, Angel had been sleeping under the covers with her head on my pillow. I’d never seen her do that before, either.
She actually stayed there for most of the afternoon.
She’s been doing a lot of new and different things since we moved. I think the new territory agrees with her!
