Rainy Nights, Getting Organized and Tattoos

It poured down rain in the wee early morning hours. There was thunder too! Perfect sleeping weather. You know when the sounds stir you long enough to just be barely awake and you roll over and snuggle down under a soft blanket and fall back to sleep…it was like that. Now everything is wet and…

Misty Magical Morning and a Memory

Outside right now I hear the saddest sound. It’s a sound I heard as a kid growing up in the country every evening. My Nona called it the Moaning Dove. It sounds so melancholy to me. I remember hearing it as the day slipped away the sun giving way to a sky of purple and…

Flea Market Finds, Making Art and Sleeping With The Windows Open

I woke up this morning to the gentle sound of falling rain outside the open window. The open window! The first time I’ve been able to sleep with the window open since last summer or maybe spring. I love sleeping with the windows open.  I love hearing the bull frogs by the pond and the…

Cats, Dogs and Birds Oh My!

Do you ever still batteries from one thing to put in another? And then since you no longer need batteries you forget to pick any up then one day you need the thing you stole the batteries from and remember you need to buy batteries! Yeah, I do that a lot and with light bulbs…

Kitty Update, The Old Store On The Corner and Art

First off Kitty Update: I once again thought progress was being made but now Bijou is back under the Narnia wardrobe after she and Piper got into it. They don’t actually fight they just chase and hiss and get loud but neither of them actually want to fight…thank goodness. Bijou used the litter box so…

Kitty Stand Off Still In Effect and Random Life Tidbits

News on the kitty front has not really changed they take turns Piper hisses and Bijou attacks and I still can’t get her to use the liter box! She must feel a little vulnerable right now since she just went under the wardrobe perhaps to visit Narnia for a while. Other than the occasional hide…

Charlie Brown & Linus, Snoopy & Woodstock, Piper & Bijou?

I hate scanning it takes so long and I’m going 90 miles an hour on the inside and the scanner is a snail! But it has to be done. I thought Bijou and Piper would have turned a corner after yesterday but Bijou went on the attack this morning so I scolded her and now…

Two Steps Forward…One Step Back…

What’s the saying? Two steps forward one step back? Bijou is now the aggressor and Piper is getting the short end of the stick. She’s walking around with a Popeye wink and threw up a bunch yesterday but I think it’s because she ate too much. Last night went better. Piper slept by me at…

I need a sign!

So, I haven’t yet worked on the zine tentatively titled The Secret Thoughts Of Cats because I’ve been entangled in them I think. If you read my last blog post you know we saved a kitty from dumpster living Friday and well, things are going pretty well most of the time. Bijou, the new addition,…

Rescuing a Kitty!!

Timing, synchronicity, meant to be…I believe these things do happen. I don’t think EVERYTHING happens for a reason but I think sometimes something is just meant to be. Case in point….yesterday I had to go food shopping and Wayne had a therapy appointment to his Vertigo (he’s been on perpetual trip lately…an inner ear thing)…
