I tried fixing his eyes but it just made him look more like an alien orange kitty.
Baby Riley is sitting on the printer watching bird tv. It's ok today but not like yesterday. I posted about the new birds that were visiting us. Absolutely gorgeous. I haven't seen them before. We usually get chickadees, blue jays, woodpeckers, and a bunch of other birdies that I don't know their names. I found a site where you can put in the color of the bird and you get pages of birds with pictures. That's how I found the bird yesterday. I put in orange and wa la there it was. Today's bird though I could not find. It's grey and white ... I think it's in the sparrow or wren family but it's picture did not come up. I'll have to keep looking. I still haven't found that bird book. I'll probably find it when I'm too old to remember why I was looking for it.
The cherry trees down my driveway have been hanging low and when I drive by I get pink flowers all over my car. ( I'm glad I took the photos last week cause I was right and the rain has made the petals fall.) It's like I have to bend over to get out my driveway. One time I stopped and looked out my rooftop window ... really pretty ... looking at the blossoms from that angle. I'll do that when I'm in the school parking lot, waiting for my son to grace me with his presence. I'll be looking at the clouds and sky. I think I told you how I love the sky. Everything about it fascinates me. Wind, no wind, shapes ..
I'm always in search of peace. Last week it went away from my house with a swift kick. Like someone told it to go away and never come near us again. One of those weeks. Only it's one of those weeks that's going to follow us around for years. Maybe forever. I won't go into details now, maybe later, but our world has kind of gotten shaken and stirred and thrown back. It's a feeling of 'what the hell just happened'. We are still standing and it's like it didn't happen but it did. I'm mad as hell and I wish I didn't have to take it anymore but we do.
So, you add what happened last week with all that goes on normally ... or not so normal ... around my house and well, that trying to find peace ... I don't think it exists. I might try to find it again but for now I'm just going to keep going. One day at a time. One step at a time ... and that's funny cause I had to get my cane out this weekend ... that's a different story isn't it.
Life just keeps throwing 'stuff' and that's not the word I want to use but it's only a Monday meowning and I'm having coffee not a whiskey. The last couple of years my life, which wasn't easy in the first place, has had so much 'weird, never happens to anyone, you only read about that happening to people, that couldn't happen more than once, how many things could go wrong, oh, don't ask cause more will happen, everyone feels sorry for us, more went wrong, of course you thought surviving a coma was going to be the worst thing that happened to you, what a silly that was just the beginning, wasn't that enough, I could go on and on, and let's add what happened last week' odd 'stuff' tossed at me. I think it's someone else's turn ... I try to laugh about it but that doesn't seem to be helping.
Oh and let's not forget the crazy lady at the grocery store yesterday who went ballistic cause I told the store employee that someone had spilled lots of flourish like powder on the floor. Me being the good citizen and not wanting anyone to fall, went over and tried to tell the store person about the spill but was verbally attacked by the spoiled rotten bitchy lady ... and she really isn't a lady ... who was insulted that I bothered her time with the grocery lady. She literally bit my head off for telling the grocery lady while she was discussing cakes or something. I looked at her and told her I really didn't want anyone to fall. Literally, I live in a gang area or something ... or just a bitchy lady area ... cause I walked away and thought ... what was that ... never in my 50 odd years have I been attacked at a grocery store for being a good person ... of course the grocery lady didn't say a word .. I think she was scared by the bitchy cake lady. I went home unloaded my groceries and had a well deserved beer. It was one of those situations where you'd like to go back and just shake the girl ... cause a young lady wouldn't act that way ... tell her mother, take away her precious cake, make her walk home and think about what she just did, etc ... but, you know she didn't think a thing about what happened cause she's a bitchy young girl and will always act that way. Seriously ... she didn't care that someone might fall ...
And, with that ... I feel better now ... cause the world seems to be out to get me and I won't let it ... I'm that kind of old cat lady.
Oh the cats are all fine ... napping away ...
You all have a nice day now and be glad you don't shop at my grocery store ... it's dangerous.
