A Snowy Day on La Rue Plumet
Cats, Company, and Coziness
It may be snowy and blustery outside, but in the salon it’s as warm and snug as could be. Papa slipped out a few minutes ago, answering queries about where he was going with an evasive answer about “picking up a few things, maybe something sweet…” Papère had looked at you the second the door closed and asked “Cookies?”
“Cookies.” You had replied with certainty. Now there’s nothing to do but sit in front of the fire and wait for the man bearing the ingredients to make his triumphant return. Papère has managed (read: been gently and not-so-gently ordered, cajoled, forced, and bribed) to take the day off, so he’s taken up residence in the cushy chair facing the window to read the newspaper and snagged the accompanying footstool. You’ve snared your favorite spot on the window seat, with the window on your left so you can admire the snow-covered back garden while getting slowly roasted by the fire to your right. All wrapped up in your favorite pajama pants and Papère’s ancient cardigan sweater, you’ve drawn up your knees and jumped headfirst into your book. (Considering the man himself has somehow managed to squeeze into your fuzzy slippers, it’s only fair you steal something of his in return – his chuckles at your outfit say he doesn’t mind) Orri the marmalade cat has gotten into the spirit of the day by curling up into a giant orange cinnamon roll atop your feet, and sounds like a happy motorboat. Every so often, he’ll let out a soft little meow to ask for more motorboat fuel – a few scritches right behind the ears, along with soft strokes along the top of his head, soon get him going again. A parent, a book, a cat, a fireplace, and the eventuality of baking cookies as a family – what more could a snowy day need?
