Bring Back Summer !!
My days used to be full of sunshine, laughter, music and I was never alone.
Boy did things change !
Since October, I have been alone.
My children visit when possible, if the snow doesn't interfere or work or life . .
I will always be grateful for all the time and expense spent leaving everything and coming here with the baby to keep me company, advise me, comfort me and make the dark nights not so long or scary.
Or buying plane tickets and flying here to see me !!
My neighbor from Buenos Aires sends emails now and tells me how things are and how the neighbors are doing, this is lovely .. I am so happy about that and anxious to be able to go back for a visit.
The weeks are not quite as long when I know there will be company coming.
But then the snow came.
I have not had company for 2 weekends.
This week I got Minette. She lightens my heart, how could she not ?
A tiny loving purring little sweetheart who depends on me for everything...
We are getting along well, today I got kitten kisses so I think she is content with her new circumstances.
It will be fun to see how she likes the baby and what he thinks of a kitten .. I imagine everything will be funny and good.
I sit here , with a window in front of me.
I am facing the street.
I am also facing snow as far as I can see, piled high, at least 3 feet and trees ..
In the back there are deer, last night I counted 7, robbing the bird feeders, poor things.
I had to scare them away .. they are large and can be destructive and I can't feed them plus the birds ..
Next the bears will come ambling over and the wolves will be slinking in ...
I want to keep this down to Just Birds ..
Minette likes birds.
They make her make funny noises.
She sits on her little pillow and makes noises at them and I have to go away to laugh so as not to disturb her enjoyment.
All of this is nice.
I just wish there were Someone here to enjoy it too .. he was so happy to be back here and full of plans for snuggling in during the snowy winters.
The cold nights would certainly be warmer and more pleasant.
And maybe not so dark !!
Did you ever see any night as dark as a night out in the countryside ??
Summer nights here were nice, you could see every single star in the sky .. a huge moon shining .. now it is deep dark and while there are stars, they seem farther away and colder.
I say lets start a campaign .. Bring Back Summer !
Now I have to go out and see if I can find what Minette needs in the way of diet, toys and maybe another cushion, a girl can never have too many cushions.
