Laundry and Other Amazing Things

I'm always amazed by people
who on Monday morning back to work
talk about all the exciting and ambitious
things they did on the weekend...

Ted "I volunteered at the homeless shelter all weekend."
Carol "I cooked a 5 course meal for 50 relatives on Sunday."
Sally "I ran a 10k marathon and taught a yoga class."
Bill "I built a new deck and resided the house."

Me "errr...I did my laundry.  With
a little luck I'll have it out of the basket and
hung up in my closet by Wednesday..."

Hope your weekend was a productive one.

Got Spring?

Please forgive my absence...
I've been out enjoying spring.

morning drive photoshoots with Stanley
(I have a small window of opportunity between the
end of hockey and the beginning of golf)
brisk afternoon walks with no coat needed
listening to the birds twitterpating
drunk from eating fermented fruit

Welcome Spring...
so glad you could make it relatively on time this year.

first spring day is another.  The difference between them
is sometimes as great as a month." ~ Henry Van Dyke

April Thoughts

Hello April!
So happy to see you again!

April holds thoughts of:
  • mittens in the morning, jackets off in afternoon
  • snow birds returning
  • those last teases of winter
  • tulips and hostas peeking through the dirt
  • the Easter bunny leaving sweet surprises
  • braving a sleeveless dress
Wishing you a warm and sunny month of April!

"In spring I have counted one hundred and thirty six different kinds of weather
inside of four and twenty hours." ~ Mark Twain

A Good Sign and In The Pink

As March draws to a close I am thankful
that spring seems to be gracing us early this year.

My yard has been free of snow for a couple weeks now
which is a vast difference to last year at this time.  (Ode to March 2013)

I take this as a good sign.

Perhaps I will not neglect my garden this year.
The melted snow has uncovered a lot of abandoned items from last year.

Keeping my fingers crossed
that Mother Nature is not teasing me.
Banjo Update: Banjo and I thank you for all your well wishes!  We are happy to report that although he had a rough patch up until Wednesday (turns out the antibiotics were making him sick), he quickly turned around after stopping them upon the vet's instructions and is back in the pink of health!!  :)

Poked n' Prodded Poor Poor Puddy-tat

My long-weekend went awry...
an unexpected trip to the vet Friday

Banjo was poked and prodded
both ends of him violated

almost 2 hours under anesthetic
anal glands flushed
a tooth pulled out
tarter scraped
toenails clipped

too many drugs
stoned kitty...

48 hours of not leaving one spot
beside his water fountain
(does the hum of it sound like purring???)

trying to trick him to take his medication
trying to force pills down his throat
is harder on me than it is on him
futile attempts

nothing could tempt him
not yogurt
not wet food
not crunched up treats

but when you love your kitty
who is truly a member of your family
you pay the vet bill without a flinch

you buy 7 different kinds of canned food
enticing him to eat those
expensive antibiotics you paid for...

and finally your sweet kitty
starts to come around...

just in time for you to go back to work

thus ends my four day weekend

A Weekend With Sprinkles

4 days off
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday

I'm looking to drink in a big ol' mug of inspiration
with gobs of cream and chocolate and cinnamon sprinkles


well not cream but rather low fat soy...
but I'll keep the chocolate and cinnamon sprinkles thank you!

Happy Friday!

24 hours of TIME

dependably short when you want more of it
vindictively long when you want less of it

Happy Monday!

Good Karma Good Weather

Thank you to everyone
for all the lovely birthday wishes!

I had a wonderful day
which included taking the day off work
(one should not work on their birthday)
and packing up a bunch of kitty treats
along with a cash donation
to take to our local SPCA
that is always in need of support.

I took the opportunity to spend time
with the many adorable kitties (and pups)
there that are needing to find homes.
So many sweet little faces!!

I think when you have
such a pampered spoiled kitty
such as I do...

it's good to spread karma
and give to those that don't have as much.

It's shaping up to be a
weekend weather wise.

Is that double digets I see
in the weather forecast for next week?
