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."

A Reading List

My favorite reads these days are books that are not too graphic , violent , ,silly, and on the light side because I am in that position of being too sensitive to Everything.
I want to be entertained, to lose myself in a place where mysteries are solved , someone is the hero or heroine, maybe there is romance , a cat ,dog,horse but no bloody violence and nightmare ingredients.

I really enjoy the books by Nancy Atherton-the Aunt Dimity  stories.
My sister in law started my addiction to Aunt Dimity and it has served me well.
Read the first one, she inherits a house.......

I have and will read anything Daniel Silva writes.
Google him.
Charles Todd , start with his first and enjoy.

Do you enjoy reading a day or afternoon away?
Who and what kind of stories?
I have 42books on my Kindle.

I'd better stop writing and start reading ~


Due to the demise of my desktop and the severe exhaustion of old laptop, this gift of an of an iPad was wonderful!
But then I tried to register it, then I tried use it for looking something up online...
It doesn't really work 😐
So here's the story
I don't really have the ability at this time to Blog.
I will keep trying but things like this make me crazy and sad

There was a time when I hit a snag and someone was right there to help me along.
Sadly that is no longer the.

It's cold and sunny in Florida today
The cats and I will watch tv and sip hot tea and work on our plans for the future.

I hope this posts
I hope you will be here when I figure out how to come back.
Happy New Year

Ahhh...Sunny Florida ... I remember when I heard the term "snowbirds" years ago and thought it was comical but right now I am sorry for those who escape the cold up North,  to stay in Florida for a while.
It is 50F in Jacksonville today.
I feel sorry for the neglected cat that spent last night in my house ,in a nest of warm blankets. I felt bad letting her out,this morning,  she is outside now, cold.

I am full of plans and ideas for this new year , they can't be spoken of yet but when the time is right.....

Now I am going to have some hot soup.

My Stowaway

This little sweetheart belongs in a home a few doors away from me.
She purrs , snuggles,wraps herself around  any leg close enough and bumps heads with you when you hold her and tell her You Love Her.
She actually belongs to someone who has no brains and lets her out to roam loose and unprotected.
We are just feet from a State Forest  which means that foxes and raccoons and , yes, that was a coyote/wolf strolling past the lanai one morning.
So Mr Clueless lets her out at night.
And yes she has 2 horrible scars on each flank that prove she escaped but with damage.
I can't bring her in the house or put her with my cats so tonight she sleeps on the lanai in a cocoon just for her with food and water within reach.

She is my part-time kitty.
