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.
Alan Cohen

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

All Kinds of Good Luck


Once upon a time,there was this girl ,who had all kinds of good luck. She grew up in a beautiful place,with the help of loving parents she went to live in California,she met all kinds of fun,amazing , cool people and then ended up in a city where she met a man and they didn't live "for ever", they certainly did live happily for a long time. They had children,various dogs and cats and everyone was happy. Sadly....Happy doesn't last..there is always something that comes along and takes it away from you. I'm getting over a series of events...of loss ....and I am living in Florida,which doesn't have a very exciting supply of stories to tell. But sitting here on the floor,with a nice breeze coming in the windows,I wanted to say hello..I'm fine,cats are fine,the condo is still very nice and I am hoping to return to the place where I feel most at home.. New York. Today's adventure will be finding out out to get water stains out of White carpet.. Yes...3 cats,me,white carpet. Enjoy your day...Wish me luck! C🐈🐈🐈

Change

Boy, talk about Change  of Life ....mine keeps changing and I am finding it more difficult to keep up and stay sane...or even stay nice/polite /pleasant/civil...not a complete and total b**ch.
The little gizmo in my brain that whispers....Don't Say It!! Just sleeps and waits for what happens next.
You know what happens next...I say it...I offend someone, there is an argument,hurt feelings,anger...
Truth is though...it feels good (sometimes) to finally say it..say those words you hold back,

I wonder,why do some people say anything they want and think it's ok...but melt down when answered the same way.

I have been abandoned.
Not for anything I said but I'm not fun anymore...
I'm bored...boring...bored.
Living in a gated community is boring..living in Florida is boring,living in a condo is boring...
Worrying about Crime is boring..

Well we have a Tornado Warning...
I need to change my address,

NY would be nice...
The cats want a dog.
Like the one next door....I haven't explained "Pitt Bull" to my cats...why give
Them nightmares?

Time for a change.....

Honey

                                 Here we go again...Honey asked me if she looked fat. She's depressed.

Greetings From Wherever

I have not been blogging because I am not doing anything to talk about.
You can only hear a funny cat story so many times before you change your name and address and go into hiding... Not even my cats are that interesting..
well, maybe for a few minutes but then it is time to talk about something else.
I have been staying in for all the reasons that everyone else is staying in...Germs!
I see no one and talk to no one..well,if you don't count the cats.

About the cats...
Merlin is fine,beautiful and still slightly cranky but purrs like a maniac when I pick him up and bury my face in his neck.
Minette waits her turn and I get my little bitty kitty bites with a lot of purring and then Honey sweetly bumps her head against me and says  Don't Forget Me Mama...

They are keeping me sane (if I really am sane) during this time when I am alone all the time..
When I was friendly to a new neighbor and really really regretted it...
When I miss "home in NY, when a family member passed away and I wasn't there to say goodbye..

My son will come get me,rescue me from what was a good idea for a while but now it's time to go ..Home.

A Note To You

In contrast to my previous Whiney post........

The sun is bright,not one cloud to be seen,the leaves on the trees in the forest are sparkling ..butterflies are flitting around. Birds are everywhere and being quite vocal.

I want to go buy some flower bulbs to put in a big pot or plant by the front step...or both.
I am working on staying cheerful and positive...who knew it could be such hard work?!

Photos coming soon...
Take care, Stay well, Be kind...
