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.

Enjoy your weekend !

And I will leave you for the rest of this weekend with something to smile at. Have a good weekend !!

Saturday - Clouds, Puppies and Pussy cats

I have nowhere to go and no one to go with.
I have nothing to do.
I am not complaining. I like it !

I was out on the lanai, admiring the clouds.
I know, sounds lame but there is a storm somewhere and this place is SO Flat !! So there are these  amazing huge fat clouds going overhead all the time. Especially when there is a storm/hurricane out in the ocean ..

So the skies are an amazing blue and the huge fat clouds are puffy and white.
The forest is very green  .. just in case someone wonders.
Now you know what it looks like in Florida.

I was out on the lanai, admiring the greens, blues and whites of nature when I saw a young woman with a tiny dog go out into the lawns.. I watched because the dog was so small ... then I fell in love.
Has anyone ever seen a 3 month old Shiba Inu ? No ? well, I will just say this ...
Like ... today.
That puppy was smaller than any of my cats. I have a feeling it will be smaller than the cats when it grows up ! Definitely smaller than Honey ... the Godzilla of pussycats.

So that is my day so far. Never let it be said that I don't live a fun and glamorous life.

Family ... Who Knew ?

So my sweet daughter with the insatiable need to KNOW EVERYTHING turned her attention to Our Family.
There are all kinds of mysteries .. or were ... nothing is safely hidden if my daughter wants to know ..

Not to mention, she should be the head of the Department of Whatever that Hunts Down People Who Are Trying to Hide. Even if they have been dead for 200 + years.

I say all of this with Great Pride ... she is amazing.

So here is todays news ...

I have a photo of the gravestone of my  10th Great Grandfather ... pretty nice stone .. all these years later too !

But then she sent me the photo of the man ...
wow ..

Sir Richard Hale (Sir Knight de Halys)

Cheerful looking old coot, no ?
So at the moment, I am boggled that my daughter has found out so much so quickly and with photos !
I am considering hiring her out, our sweet family bloodhound ... You can run but you can't hide.
I can't wait to see who/what she finds next.

A Quickie

 As we all know, here in the US anyway, it is Tax Time.
The person who did mine for me since my husband died, is out of the country.
I am in a state of low level simmering panic because the only person I know who could help, is ignoring me.
Too busy, gotta go, talk to ya later ...

So there is a good chance I won't be posting for a few days , you don't want to hear my whining and moaning and it would bore me too .. plus talking about it exacerbates my panic attacks .. I kinda want to keep breathing on my own, you know.

I will be back when this new glitch in my search for peace and contentment is dealt with and I can start back on my new goals ... they are good... I can't wait.

Cats are excited too.
I know this how ?

When I told Merlin, he purred louder.
Honey looked up from her bowl and said Yeah?? then back to the bowl.
Minette butted heads with me and purred .. she seems to be the only one that takes a real interest in our lives ...

Ta ta for now,
