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.

New Beginnings

Things seem to move so slowly then suddenly they are moving too fast to keep up.

The other day someone wanted to see my house.
I took a drive, they came to see the house, I came home.
The realtor never calls right away to tell me anything but she will if there is something I should know.
I think she protects me in a lot of ways, she knows my hopes get up , she hates to dash them.
People adore my house, they adore my property but so far, that is about all that has happened.
I have let a lot of strangers walk through my home and tell me how nice it is ...

A few days ago, my realtor told me about a house that she was just listing, she wanted to take photos for her website.
I went with her.

I am still going to wait to talk too much about it , not to jinx it.
But the realtor had some people come in and ask about my house.
Today she brought them to see it.
Apparently, it is perfect.
I think it is nice, but for me, it is not quite perfect.
It could have been at one time, but that time  is gone now.

So the people saw the house ..
Today they came back with someone else .. a contractor.
There was talk of decks and extending things and now I get to sit on pins and needles to see if they say they want it.

If they say they do ... then the Ball will begin to Roll.
And I will say that I want the Little House that was made for Me and Minette.
(god forbid I should leave her out of anything ...)

Tonight we had a major rain storm. Very large trees whipping around.
I worried that at this time of all times, a tree falling on the house was a bad idea.
Minette just wanted me to stop running from room to room to look out the windows and make strange sounds.
Like she doesn't do that too ?

So any day now I will be able to announce my badly kept news.
A New Beginning is close ... don't tell Minette but a puppy might be close too.

                                               No, you can't get much crazier than her.


  1. I'm very excited for you! Sure hope it all works out! Your new home sounds purrfect for you and Minette.

  2. Fingers and toes crossed for good news! That is so exciting!

  3. Glad to hear that a puppy is still in your future! So surprised to hear you are staying. Good luck and I hope the little house will be yours. Can't wait to hear more and hoping you will tell us why you decided to stay. I thought you wanted sun.

  4. Keeping all my fingers and toes (with difficulty) crossed for you - Minette definitely looks as if she know that her life is on the brink of change. What gorgeous green eyes and soft pink pads to her feet she has.

  5. Thank you Rosemary, she is adorable and I never thought about it but you are so right ! her little feet are so pink and soft .. never goes outside is why, I guess.

    I was going to go look at puppies and then I was going to go look at a cat, an elderly cat who is in a shelter .. I am hesitant to possibly spoil our little twosome ..

    I drove by the "New" house and just love it.
    I don't even want to think of how I would fall apart if I don't get it :)

  6. The picture of Minette is priceless. A perfect WTF!

    Hope everything works out with both houses and you can get the show on the road.

    Best of luck.


  7. OH it's getting close!!! I hope it all works out for you, Minette and whatever other furbabies come along!

  8. Yes! I'm so glad things are going well with your (possible) new home! And I'll not tell Minette about the puppy. Your secret is safe with me! :)

  9. Thank you Mary ! Don't tell Minette about the possible new/old cat either !


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