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.

I was going shopping with my daughter.
I wanted to go look at Stuff in shops / boutiques, not that I need anything but it is fun browsing and my daughter is fun, so I know there would be a lot of laughs.
But ....
Merlin is not himself .. he is an old man. I cannot imagine him not being with me so I will stay home and watch over him and see if he is just having a bad day or not.
My hope is that a good nap and some stinky food will have him back to his old ... old self.
He is old. But I am not ready to say goodby so he has to snap out of it today  !!

It is beautiful out ... really beautiful.
Cloudless blue blue skies and not too warm, very comfortable. I turned off the a/c and have the lanai doors open ( this means that a set of 4 sliders are open so the wall of my living room is now open to the lanai which is very nicely screened with my old wicker furniture ..  Everything I have had from one home to another, one city, state, country to another, has fit in the next home .. amazing.
I even have my own laundry room so I really never have to leave this condo. I could live here without going out ... hmmmmm....
The cats would probably beg me to leave ... just for a while mama, give us a break  mama ...
They like their little Cat Chats.

My son and little family are preparing to go to Japan.
I guess Florida just didn't hold the same appeal :)
I kind of wish I was going too.
But then, if I have choices to make, Buenos Aires would be the next Big Trip.
New York would be the next Not So Big Trip...
The cats  would be much happier in a car for 3 days than a crate in a plane for 12 + hours ..

It is gorgeous out .. did I say that already ? yeah, it is worth repeating.

It is nice to be able to sit back and remember past homes, past places , compare various things you liked or didn't like, just remember what a variety of lives you live when you move from one place/home to another.
It is a tiny bit addictive I think.

Tell me about your Saturday.Where, what did you do and what is the plan for tomorrow.. Sunday/Funday .....
