Because Hannah had to take it easy this weekend and her medicine made her tired we just relaxed at home. It was a lazy weekend but we got to see our cats, MJ is the one in the photo, and she baked some pretty great cookies. It’s never been hard for me to relax and be lazy but for some it can be. It was a good thing that she was forced to just relax and take things slow. Everyone needs that. Time to rest and take a break from things.
I wasn’t particularly excited to go see the new Orangutan Center at the Zoo. But we went and it is a very impressive building. But what actually took my breath away were the Orangutans. I watched this one climb up the ladder he walked right up to the glass sat down and watched the people. He was as interested in us as we were in him. When I saw his eyes and the way he looked at people it was incredible. He was so intelligent. You could see it in his eyes. And I stood there and watched a little girl stare at him and he stared right back and then they mimicked each others hands. I don’t know why this struck me but it did. There was just something about these creatures that was incredibly impressive.
