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.

Over so fast !

For me, this morning ... the weekend is over.
Waking to a dark morning, rain and dreariness and the little family packed and ready to leave.
I didn't even have my 3rd cup of coffee yet !!

I am alone again with the kitten.
I am weeping from sadness that the time went so fast, I didn't get in enough baby kisses and laughs and fun.
Minette is walking around howling ... she can't find her little bitty boy.
She likes him.
Sometimes he has food on him.

I spent more time cleaning, shopping and cooking in anticipation of the visit, than the actual length of time of the visit  ...

Ah well, I must work on Hobbies, finding one ... Friends, finding one ... Travel and Adventure .. dreaming of that one.


  1. That's the trouble when the family visit …. they have to leave !!
    Chin up …. I'm sure they will visit again soon and the bonus is that you have a very clean and tidy house !!!! …. there's always a positive to be found. XXXX

    1. Jacqueline, yes, these days the house is clean and tidy and I am wishing it were noisier and messy and all I can hear is laughter. Instead, I am trying to teach Minette to talk, she probably has ideas I never dreamt of !

  2. I am not anonymouse, I am Carla. She who has no google account that she can access :0 and no idea what the other things I can sign in as....just saying I hope by the end of the day you and the lovely kittie are lost in dreams of someplace like Paris! Hugs...C.

    1. Carla, honey, you never write you never call LOL You would think you had a wedding to plan or something.
      Thank you for the comment .. I treasure your comments. They are generally pithy. Minette and I are plotting our course as we speak. Time for changes to be made. As if I have not had enough .. besos ..

  3. That's the funniest picture I've seen in awhile... Thanks for the giggle

    1. Isn't it ?! I am going to just keep the page open and every time I see it I can have a laugh. We take what we can get sometimes :)

  4. I can't tell you how good it is to ready your posts again!! Thank you so very much for sending me your message. I am home today from work and it came as such a delightful surprise. My heart goes out to you as it's so hard when the excitement of friends/family comes to an end and you're left with a temporary silence. I love your sense of humor and you've brought a smile to my face too!! You have a good day; if it makes you feel any better, it's crrrrrrrap here in Scotland too!! Hugs to you my friend xx

    1. Deb, I am sooo glad you wrote. You have to give me your email address so I can annoy you privately.
      Somehow I think I would rather be in crap weather in Scotland right now instead of Upstate NY .. love to you !


Thank you for your comments.... Trolls are being dealt with ... be patient if your comment does not show up immediately. Thanks !!
