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.

Making Plans

  Rainy Days

Rainy Days and Mondays ... in this case Sunday ..

I have come to not mind rainy days on any day.  I generally have no plans for any particular days so if it rains, it is a change from a sunny day .. that's about it.

Of course, today's rain is one of those Don't Go Out in the rain days, but a Stay Home and Be Lazy day .
It is pouring.
The cats didn't even like sitting out on the lanai ..

So we are all snug and warm and dry inside in our spots.
Mine was in the kitchen .. I am roasting salmon. I made soup. Never think I will starve if it rains a long time lol

I have been reading blogs and tidying up my Inbox for my emails.

Sort of Getting Rid of Bad Rubbish if you know what I mean.
People who used to email me all the time about their problems, their losses, their late night full of wine emails .. I had the bad idea to be honest to one of them .. and was called a liar.
Poor thing, wine addled that old brain .. but it helped me make that decision, take out the trash.
So I have been going through my email boxes .. yes, there are more than one ..sigh .. and I have been deleting the really old stuff and only saving the special ones .. from people I loved or lost ..
I have a lot of mail and notes from Blogger people , who happen to be a breed apart .. really.
There is a human kindness sort of thing about all of the bloggers who have emailed me .. a niceness that I cherish .. that I appreciate for its being kind of rare in this Internet world we live in.
So if you remember sending me a sweet email .. I saved it. Thank you again.

I have cats in the house napping. I have a little cat that came by earlier and now I don't know where it is but it is pouring rain and I want it to come into my lanai where it will at least be able to be dry .. fed and dry .. so little to ask for ..

I have been figuring out logistics of changing things again and that is sort of fun.
Like planning a vacation or a trip .. you know what you want , you just have to make the plan so you can not only do it but do it successfully .. and be happy at the end.

We all want a Happy Ending , don't we ? :)

Well, we all watched the Super Bowl around here. I don't care about professional football, but my SIL's family is from Philly, so it was a HUGE deal to him. He was literally crying tears of joy at the end, LOL! It was rainy all Sunday morning and dreary the rest of the day, so I did some sewing - I'm slipcovering an inexpensive little chair I purchased at a consignment store :)
