Thanks, cat.

Summer has arrived in Ottawa. It's hot, and sticky.

I commute to and from work by bike. This is generally more pleasant than the bus. And of course is good for me.

There's a big hill shortly before my house, so I usually arrive home tired and out of breath from the hill.

Today I was particularly tired and particularly hot, so I flopped on my bed waiting for the sweat to stop pouring out of my pores long enough to make getting washed off and changed worthwhile.

The ever-helpful Isis hopped up on the bed to say hello. She licked some sweat off my ear.

Then she hopped up on my back and sprawled herself out the entire length of my back.
