My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Friday

It was a long boring week which ended with an even more boring day .. thank God for the cats or I would still be in bed ... since Monday .


It is quite beautiful here ... now and then a storm hits somewhere and weather men get overly excited and I get anxious then nothing happens.
They talk too much and never quite get it right.
I miss Al Roker lol ... a NYer will get it ..

I am about to have a spending spree online .. then wait, with excitement for the delivery .. then I will be bored again   😆


Blogger has changed the emoticons etc ... I just discovered it ... uh oh.

My blog has bogged down.
I am not going anywhere interesting to see anything interesting or hear anything interesting and I am always alone and only have cats for company so no one is wanting to hear more about that ..
I am boring.
I used to be fun.
Life used to be fun.
Now it is just boring ... with bored cats .. but at last today, there is no hurricane.

Plans are brewing though ... hopes for escapes from boredom, ideas on how to manage it ...

so if you stick with me, hopefully we will all be less bored in the next few months.

Thank you for sticking with me ..  here is a pink rose for you from me ..

Enough is Enough

My heart goes out to the many many people who were wounded, the families who lost children, the husbands and wives and grandparents and everyone whose lives have been forever lost or dreadfully changed, in England.
Not just in Manchester, but throughout England, the family members, the friends who live elsewhere , the people who never met them but one day might have .... all the hope and promise of young people, gone. . in an instant .. taken by sub humans ..

How many innocents will be lost ?
How many tragedies in how many families and towns and cities will be suffered ?
How long does the rest of the Civilized World allow anything like this to ever even be possible again?

How can people who are in charge in various areas of the world, of governments, armies , towns and neighborhoods, not do something ?

I was not born yet , but like most Americans, I Remember Pearl Harbor ..
I was born and living in the NY area in September, 2001. I Remember ...
We all remember.
And we all should be thinking something along the same lines ... This Cannot Happen Again.

These Animals Have To Be Stopped ... in whatever way there is ..
The Murderers of Children and young people, cannot be allowed to exist.

It is Enough.
It is time  to do something about this ...

Ahhh, Sunday B***** Sunday

I was allowed to sleep late ... well, later than 7 am.
I was not harassed or nagged about breakfast not appearing magically as I walked into the kitchen ..
I was met with a cup of very good coffee ( thank you Mr Coffee maker aka Cuisinart ).

The cats are enjoying a quiet / silent , warm, Sunday morning with a few clouds and whispers of Beeeg Storms on the way.

As long as I don't hear the H word, I am OK.

Speaking of H words ... the S word never scared me ...
Snow ..
I just knew I had to scurry to the stores and stock up on things and the only worry was that the heat/electricity stayed on.
And the sight of the utility bills at the end of winter ... that was kind of scary.

I am missing Home , big time.
I am quite comfortable here and really have no complaints .. only the missing of where I would rather be ...

Cats are funny.  They have such different personalities and likes and dislikes.
My grandmother had Siamese cats for years and years ... her last one was Suzie .. Suzie hated me.
I was her Rival.
If I was visiting and the cat was ,as always, sitting on the arm of the chair my grandmother liked .. if my grandmother talked to me, the cat would gently reach up and put her paw on my grandmothers mouth ....
Shhhhh .... don't talk to her .... make her go away ....

I am happy to say .. well, maybe not That happy, but when I have company, my cats are all over the visitor.
I should put a sign out - Beware of Cat Hair .. Enter at your own risk ...  Lint rollers available.

So the cats and I are spending a nice quiet Sunday , with books, interesting tasty food and plotting and planning.

Wishing you a Lovely Sunday .. you can tell me about it if you like ...

Nothing like a cat chat

My beautiful boy Merlin .. he pats my face with those huge hairy paws .. gentle as can be...

Look Forward

I had a dream last night.
In that dream, I had a dog.
He looked an awful lot like my dog Tate, "Pup" ... a large brown  Standard Poodle.
He was just walking on the street, I called his name, he ran right to me and walked beside me.
He was my Good Boy.

I hated waking up this morning.
I have dreamt of people that I have lost, the same feeling is there upon awakening ... disappointment .. a fresh feeling of loss and a bit of grief.. it was just a dream.

I am alone too much ... with cats. Who should be able to speak English soon.
Or I will be speaking Cat. I just wish they were like dogs, that we could go outside together, take a walk, do something a bit more than lie on the sofa/bed/floor and purr.
Well, I don't purr ... not yet.

I keep making plans. Looking Forward. Figuring things out .. preparing in my mind before I start preparing in "real life" ... reality ... ugh.

Today I might take my banker's advice ... I might go shopping.
Not online as usual .. although that is a possibility but I might find a shop nearby and get something new ... to wear around the house for the cats to see.
