Wednesday In The Woods

What can I say.
It's been a wild ride over here in the woods.
 
Jodie Belle, turned one year old in early November.
Hasn't she grown up to be an absolute beauty.
 
Maddy Jean continues to enjoy her days.
Getting older but having fun with her sister anyway.
 
Thanksgiving was nice.
My son was home and he's always so funny.
Now, he's back studying for his finals.
 
Meredith Ann was in heaven.
She loves her boy.
Her boy loves her.
 
Me, I'm ok.
I think I'm getting better.
Going in today to see one of my specialists.
I actually have three of them.
Lucky me.
 
I sit each morning watching the birds.
Riley and Meredith and I.
I really think I am part cat.
It thrills me so.
 
Even in my I feel terrible mode,
I'm out there refilling suets
and yelling at the squirrels
for stealing their food.
 
We put up a few lights along the driveway.
I love the twinkles.
The dark so early, not so much.
 
The colder months and I don't like each other.
This old body of mine seems to win
this battle I'm in with it,
during the darker, colder months.
 
It's this time of year,
that I remember,
that in a month or so,
it will be seven years
since I woke up.
 
Been a battle every single day.
Only I'd do it again.
If they asked me, like they did.
I wasn't ready then and I'm still not.
 
After all, who would feed
my Purr and Fur Gang.
 
Hope you all have a Grand week.
Sorry about not getting a new
Meredith Ann up this week.
I wasn't feeling up to it.
Maybe next week.

Is Jodie Belle a year already? Wow. Yes, she's grown into quite the beauty.

We're glad Maddy Jean still is enjoying herself, and the doggie company.

I hope that at least one of your specialists is eye candy. :-)

Continued purrs from the boys and universal Light from me.

Hope everything goes well with the specalist!

Wow, what a difference in Jodi Belle's photo from when she was a pup to now.

I like to watch the birds, too. Of course, I am a cat and I have ulterior motives.

I hope your specialists are nice guys as well as being more than competent doctors. I hope the purr and fur gang are content with indoor living for a few months. And remember, squirrels have to eat, too, though I think they prefer peanuts.

Happy seven year anniversary of your "waking up."

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.
