Thursday In The Woods

This is what Meredith Ann has been doing.
~ ~ ~
It's another Thursday in my woods.
And, yes they belong to me.
The part I pay taxes on, at least.
 
Birds are singing.
The hots have become muggy.
It rained.
I actually had to think, what is that noise.
Isn't that the greatest.
We've had a nice Summer.
I've lived in this part of my state, my whole life.
This, I think, is one of the best we've had.
The lawns are crinkly brown though
but it's so nice to wear flip flops and shorts.
Even on a muggy sort of moist day.
 
The computer problems continue.
I need to get my nerdly husband to fix
the connection to the computer from
my camera.
He said he would but got busy.
 
He washed my car and took me out to dinner.
 I'll let it pass this time.
Lilly Ann
My feral Siamese
Who I lost several years ago
She was the sweetest cat
I've ever known
 
This weekend, I will be celebrating another birthday.
Didn't know if I'd make this time.
Was told twice this year that I probably wouldn't.
Oh well, I did .. so there.
 
What does my future hold .. don't know.
I'm living day by day.
Week by week.
 
So, here's to today.
It's been rather nice so far.
 
Oh, the purr and fur gang
say meow and woof.
No, really they've been quite talkative lately.
 
I finished my latest book.
I'll have to start the next one .. tomorrow.
 
Wow Meow,
~ JC ~

I'm so glad you made it :-)

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.
