How Did You Sleep ?

Hanging Out With Jasmine Marie

This is a quiet meowning.
The rain arrived during the night.
Left a moistness that took away
 my lovely sort of warm sun.
(It was warm as long as you stood in it)
It was so nice to have the last few days.
Like Spring really was thinking about
settling in and visiting.
I told the Purr & Fur Gang that
there was hope that Spring
had finally arrived.
Even though it has officially started,
it seems to have been delayed
along its way to my parts of the world.
Not to worry though,
just the idea that it's coming
is enough to bring the spirits around here up.
(Think naps in a sunny spot, birds flying by the windows)
Last night, Mr. Boatman was snoring.
 I gave up and ventured into the closet
where the soft Winter blankets live.
 I settled in with my pillow,
the soft blanket and two of my cats.
 Was thinking, now I can sleep.
Was drifting off when ...

What did I hear from the slight opening in the window ?
Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo
That happened every other minute.
I listened for a while and
decided I had to get up and close that crack.
Just when I was snug as an old lady 
in a soft kitty cat blanket.

What this tells me is that the owl is still in my woods.
Only how do they survive when they sing all night long ?
Now, to get into that back yard and find it.
Course it won't be today but at least I know
 I have another photo adventure
in the wild back woods
scheduled for this Spring and Summer.

How did you sleep last night ?

( I moved to the beach place and unpacked a lot of my boxes.
Came back to my woods for a couple weeks.
Will be going back and forth depending on what's going on.
The Purr Gang love the beach place.
More room and they can go out on the deck.
They are getting used to car rides.
As used to them as they can.
I guess I'm a bit of a traveler now.
Having two places that I call home.)

Oh my...Jasmine Maria is adorable! Well, sometimes I feel like I've slept all night like that... but thankfully, not last night!
Happy Easter!

Sally in WA said...

How does Jasmine do that?! LOL!

I slept well. Hope you find your owl.

Remington said...

Is that comfortable?

Brian said...

I think Jasmine Marie is on to somehthing (hehheh)!

Lyn said...

I love the idea of you snuggling up with the cats and the owl hooting away outside!

Tober the Cat said...

Jasmine is a very talented and well-balanced Cat!

Last night I slept like a very Handsome and Mancatly log, since we (for once) didn't have any Thunderboomers. Finally!

Judy said...

Hope you are feeling better! I have a case of the blahs, but a lot of that is exhaustion, from working too many hours. But income tax season in Canada is almost done, and then I can cut back my hours.

Sleeping is something that I do without interruption, thankfully. Sometimes large truchs rattle by and shake my old house a bit, but I can drift back to sleep again. I wish that owls would come back to my garden. I did have one once, he trilled like a loon. The rain floods the yard and the Marsh Marigolds are thriving! No way to get rid of them. The plants are behind because we are still rather cold here. Cheers Lori

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
