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?


Tuesday, March 4, 2014's all in the skin

I'm turning 49 tomorrow.
How did that happen?

I'm about 5 or 6 in this photo.

Oh that skin!!

That beautiful smooth porcelain flawless skin.

I think it's your skin that
gives your age away the most doesn't it?

(When in HELL did my hands get looking so old???)

Martha Stewart tells us "70 is the new 50"

I like the way she thinks...

because with that thought in mind
50 should be the new 30 - yes?

Therefore, 49 should be the new 29...

that's what I'm going with.

Now if you will excuse me,
I have to go put
anti-wrinkle cream on my face
age spot remover on my hands
and anti-age serum on my neck...

I'm not taking any chances...
