Happy Fourth of July
My First Fourth of July in my new home in Florida.
It was very quiet, spent alone with the cats, relieved there was no booming of fireworks all night.
I think they might be tightly controlled here ... it was even more quiet than in Upstate New York !
The cats and I hung out on the lanai with just stars for light, classical music and dreams.. I am always plotting and planning. It is good to plan .. even little bitty plans. It keeps you looking Forward and not getting mired in the Past or even the Now.
I slept well... this might have something to do with cats that left the room when they woke instead of staying on the bed and bickering.
Minette likes a snuggle for about 2 seconds then she has to hop down and go prowl, full of energy little girl.
Merlin is my 'snuggler' ... not only does he feel fabulous to cuddle up to but he will just ramp up the purring and lay there like a large limp hairy baby .. at my mercy .. kissing and snuggling and whispering love words. He seems to eat it up.
Sweet huge Honey isn't a 'snuggler', not much , she likes to be petted then she wants to get on with the day .. I am surprised, my mom was always cuddling a cat ..
But Honey shows her love and affection in other ways and I am just glad she is here.
So the morning dawned bright and clear and quiet ... super quiet.
Summer has arrived.
