I've been so busy lately
that I have had no time to blog or to visit.
As September rounds it's corners and starts to end,
the feeling of Fall is entering my world.
I've enjoyed a fabulously warm August and September.
Sitting in the backyard with Maddy Jean and Meredith Ann.
(Meredith on her baby sitter .. aka ..
the shovel with camping rope (small) and a blue leash.)
I've never had a cat who can do this.
She roams around and I move the shovel when needed.
I have five cats and none of them will do this.
Meredith could sit outside all day.
This lets me do a few things in the kitchen
and walk around the yard with Maddy Jean.
Once in a while, Meredith will get a bee in her fluffy furs
and move but normally she's in her rope area.
Never trying to get out of her collar.
Anyway, what I was saying is that Fall is in the air.
The chill at two am after a muggy hot day.
The sweater needed in the morning.
The thought that I might have to turn the heat on.
What ? Is Summer over.
I liked it so.
I waited all Winter for it.
The days are getting shorter.
Dark at seven. No, say it isn't so.
My arthritis is aching.
I don't want it to come visit me again.
I don't do well in Winter.
Hurt most of the time.
My bones need warmth.
I need to move to Arizona or something.
My two kids are away at college.
First tests on the way.
It's their time to discover who they want to be.
Failing a test is a very humbling thing.
As I well know.
What I wanted to be and what I ended up doing,
Two different things.
Never did I ever think that I would be who I am today.
Not that's it bad.
It's just different.
As a Mom, it's hard to get them (my two kids)
to realize that dreams change.
The path you walk has turns and twists.
To always keep on the path even if there's a bump
or a tree that's in the way.
So, it's my time now.
I'm done with that faze in my life.
What to do ?
Been looking at www.petfinder.com lately.
Maddy Jean is so sad.
I spend all my time with her.
When I'm gone, I think I better get back to her.
The dog I had called about, I did not get.
She was adopted in between me calling
and the rescue group updating their site.
I will keep looking.
The Purrfect Dog will show up.
One that likes old Golden Retrievers,
old cats and old ladies.
Til then, I will keep doing the clean up of this old house.
I have been getting rid of lots of 'kid' stuff.
Going through this and that.
And, on that note, I wish you all a
Grand Old Day.
