Riley Helps

It's the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
That means the house is a mess.
Lights have been brought down.
Strings of them on the floor.
Which ones work.
Can this one be fixed ?
Boxes of old decorations
have made it down the stairs.
A wreath on the door.
A cinnamon pine cone near the fire.
Cards sitting on the shelf.
Too rainy to put lights up.
Maybe next weekend.
Haven't found the stockings yet.
More boxes in the storage area.
Must be in one of those.
Nutcrackers are waiting to march.
And, the rain it keep on coming.
Wind blowing it at the windows.
Cats napping on or near the heater vents.
No walks outside that's for sure.

Tomorrow's another day. "Hi Riley"

Hee hee! Riley, those lights look like the ones that Mama was saying bad words at the other day. Hope you get them sorted out - that looks like a big job that will require lots of naps.

Taking our time with decorations is important....should be a fun time....take care and relax.

Actually, sounds like the start of something great!

Psst!, Riley, as soon as Mom goes to bed you can have some real fun with those lights. And she won't have to worry whether they light or not - she'll just go and buy some new ones. Souds like a win-win to me. Whaddya say?

Jasmine has a white mustache; my Purnima has white feet. Yours is Siamese and mine is Himalayan. And they are both near the heater! Mine just got a new bed. She's the only one who has taken to it.

Great job helping Riley but it takes more than a day to do!

Thank you for your purrs and concern for our Yoko. All seems well here now!

You are having the same kind of weather we are! Yuck!

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.
