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.

It’s a hot day but the humidity is tolerable and there is a little breeze
I decided to get my kindle and come out onto the lanai where sleeping cars litter the place but I got a chair after Minette went inside to cool off, followed by Old Man Merlin.
I returned to my murder mystery.
I kept hearing little chirpy squeaky sounds that I ignored then looked up to see what was going on.

The last thing I expected to see.

A Hummingbird Fight
Well-not exactly a “fight” but a little air warfare going on.
I have seen all kinds of birds fighting or bickering over something but this was a First.

The tiny birds
The tiny beautiful birds.
Darting here and there so fast.
A duel between magical beings in plain sight of ordinary humans

It was a gift.

And Thats The Story of Honey

I have written about her before ....  My mom adopted a tiny kitten. The two of them lived in an apartment and kept each other company. The kitten had a sweet gentle mama and my mother had a sweet little baby .
I am not sure if it was hereditary or if mom just over fed the kitten but when mom died and I inherited Honey, I got this Extra Large pussycat .... with this tiny cat meow.
She is playful, affectionate and comical. It is a pleasure to be able to give her love and a home because that is what my mother wanted and I get to enjoy Honey.
So thats the story of Honey ...


I have had a bit of trouble ... well actually .. it has been a pain in the a$$ trying to get the comments section etc to work again or to even show up easily.

I think/hope it is fixed now. If not, let me know. So I can throw the computer with its crap "Blogger" out the window.

If you use Safari, you probably will be having no problems.
If you use  Chrome, there you might have a problem. Blogger it seems, only wants comments to come from Safari .. so I switch back and forth when that happens but no one is going to want to do that for long.
While I figure it all out, please hang in there with me.

During the day, something will happen, I will see or hear something and say to myself, I have to Blog that ! So stay there, things are bound to get more interesting.
I have company coming and I am considering running away ...

Thank you.
It is 8:21.
I have fed 3 fussy kitties and one desperate for love young kitty who slept on my lanai rather than go home or be out with the raccoons.

If it isn't one thing it's another.

A Beautiful Day

I am going to have out of state company.
They will stay in a nearby hotel.
This is always a good thing.
Especially when they have a small child and I have 3 cats.
I am mulling over the pros and cons of moving.
To another state.
I wish it was to another country.
Although there are times, here in Florida, that I feel like I am in another country.
Today I will see if I can find some flowers to put in the house, that cats won't want to eat 
or knock over.
Wishing you a Beautiful Day ~
