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

 Minette,   is fine , going nuts .. running back and forth and then flopping down on her pillow by the sliding doors to watch out for chipmunks.
They come out and stand there and laugh at her.
I thought I saw them mocking her, you know, sticking out their tongues and shaking their tiny butts at her.
She pretends to be bored, yawns, shows her sharp teeth, they run away.
They are the most interesting things happening these days ..

Today I took a drive to pick up fresh veggies at my favorite farm stand.
 One of the owners gave me a tour of the herbs that smell or taste like another plant ..minty things, strange plants that taste like broccoli, pretty plants .. it was interesting .. 
I bought something but I forgot what it was will be a surprise when it is cooked.

Tonights dinner is Rotelle with sauteed in oil and garlic ... baby zucchini , baby spinach, cherry tomatoes and chives. It should be good. At least it is all fresh.

I saw a baby Angus cow today. I see a lot of baby sheep and an occasional goat.

I see horses but no babies.

I see humans, babies everywhere ! 

And here at home I have the baby cat. 
Who is now napping after losing her mind and practically running up the walls.
She sits out in the sun room with only a screen between her and a family of chipmunks.
I think it is making her neurotic.

I think I am making her neurotic.
I think I am neurotic.

The sun is shining, everything is so green .. it will be sort of sad to leave it . 


  1. It broke my heart to leave the last place H & I had together, even though it was far beyond my means to keep alone. It was filled with the memory of HIM. In some ways I felt like a traitor for leaving it.

    Sending you good thoughts for moving forward.

  2. That is what I was thinking. My husband loved it here, more than I .. although I would have loved it because he was here. Now it is very nice and I feel comfortable but it is too much for one person alone.
    He would be the first to tell me to move .. Thank you :)
