Losing SP and my little old cat was a double whammy this week. The last four days I’ve eaten poorly half a day and well the other half, so I guess I could be doing worse. I’ve made a point of getting in the pool each day; I think it’s helping... Read more

MISSIONS accomplished: Laundry. Husband needed a clean shirt with farm logo for his market day tomorrow. Grocery shopping. The store I shopped at yesterday didn’t have everything on my list, just as well since I found some good sales ... Read more

I made an effort to get out of my slump. The best thing I did today was spend some time in the pool around dusk. The water was warm as I like it, the breeze had died down, and the darkening sky was clear. The mockingbird family in the crepe m... Read more

The day after my tiny twenty year old cat died peacefully in my chair….My head feels a bit battered from yesterday’s tears. Even as of last night, I was aware of changes. I hadn’t noticed since Friday when she began to seriously decline ... Read more

My little old cat is joining the others in the backyard. We had an appointment for a Lap of Love vet to come to our home later today, but she did it on her own a little while ago. She was with us for most of her twenty years after we couldn’t ... Read more
Very underhanded

Very underhanded, SP. I finally found the article about SP shutting down as of Aug 17 after trying links others posted, first heard about it through comments, now I’ve lost it again. Could you not have done us the courtesy of making a general an... Read more

Nice to have last night’s leftovers for Sunday’s supper. That Parmesan baked chicken is mighty good. My little old cat isn’t doing very well. She’s eaten little the last couple of days, not even fried chicken. I’ve done a little rearrang... Read more

Puttered around the house, did some tidying and sorting, went out to buy a piece of Kentucky Fried Chicken for the senior cat, read a book, and paid bills. Our May dry spell is over. We’ve had some good soaking rains the last few days. It... Read more

So annoying to have lost yesterday’s blog. Whatever I hit wasn’t “post”. Ah well. One reflection and then I’ll move on. It felt very good but strange to enjoy parties and picnics in person with groups of 20-25. My car is in the shop so... Read more

It’s Friday, and I actually have plans. A friend wrote a lovely article for the Shalem Institute of Spiritual Formation titled “Let the Door Close Behind You” about the challenge of coming out of our pandemic caves. I’m going to two gatherings... Read more

Happiness Quotient is pretty good today. In spite of too short sleep, I woke up feeling ready to go. Monday the 31st is not only Memorial Day, it’s also our 47th anniversary. We learned years ago when dealing with aging relatives NOT to celeb... Read more

My little tiny kitty looks pretty threadbare after having the matted places shaved. Her itty bitty legs look like little chopsticks. But it has to feel better than tight mats pulling on her old fragile skin. ... Read more

I’m glad it’s over. I’ve had two appointments, doctor and dentist, two sick cats, and messed up sleep. After two days, Mickey recovered on his own, but Miss Moppet went to the vet. She has an ear infection again, and I had them trim the fur ma... Read more
