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.

A Change Is Going To Come

Spring in Buenos Aires ... the time of year when we moved there .
It was still cold but each day the trees would show a little green , a little purple ... it was not as cold on our morning walks to the park with Tate.

We were finally able to not have the heat on in the rental apt.
We really lucked out with that apartment.
I can't remember how my husband found it but it was one of those cases of talking to someone who knew someone who had an apartment for rent.

There were hardly any dishes and the beds (mattresses) were in horrible condition .. but the views were fabulous and there were only 2 apts to a floor and we were in the back so our views were good and it was silent.

Which was good, that eased us into life in a very noisy city .. where most people think honking the horn is a requirement in any drive you take.

It is Autumn here in the US ... I love the colors and smell and sight of the trees changing and the nights getting cooler . But I dread the winter.
I am constantly , with little relief, thinking of where to go next and what to do.

I am not asking for advice, I don't really want any ..

But at this time of year, when seasons change and a long cold lonely winter is ahead, I am inspired to Do Something. Get a Move on ... Change things ...
So I have begun.

We will see, hope for the best , have lots of plans for This and That ...

In the meantime ... I made deviled eggs.
Turned to do something and came back to the counter , with Minette eating the yolk out of an egg.
Apparently, she likes the combination of egg yolk, mayonnaise and mustard.
She must be a Southern girl after all !

Merlin just squints up at us and meows.
So I gave him a taste.

Now I have 2 cats who like deviled eggs.


  1. It's wonderful you are making changes...I sure hope for the best for you!
    I laughed when I read Minette eating egg yolk. In the past I put eggshell in the sink. I went to refrigerator to get something and when I turned around, I saw Goro walking away with the eggshell in his mouth. I can never leave food out unattended, even for a minute :-)

  2. LOL ... I wonder if what Minette likes in the deviled eggs is the mix of mayo and mustard with the yolk. Merlin likes it too !

  3. Your cats are beautiful. We had three cats so I know what they're like. It's funny what they like and don't like isn't it ? .... I mean, you wouldn't have thought that they would like deviled eggs would you ?
    I hope that you don't have too hard a winter. XXXX

  4. I can only guess what they have on their minds lol I think it is the mayo that tempts them more than the actual egg.
    I am busy making myself crazy with trying to make plans for winter.. thank you !!
