My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
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.
Alan Cohen
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
Groucho Marx
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Cat chat

You can feel sad, you can feel blue and lonely but if you have a cat or a dog, life is much better.
My cats tell me that I don't need a dog.
There are days that I agree with them.

Honey likes to nap .. while I am on the computer ... she always stays close by.

You can get an idea of the difference in Honey and Minette size-wise.
Minette I can pick up with one hand, Honey breaks my back when I pick her up with both hands/arms.
And then there is Merlin ... magical beautiful softer than soft, Merlin my love.

It is a sunny day ... bright and clear and quiet. The creatures in the forest behind me are having a late Sunday sleep-in on .. the cats slept in a bit which was lovely, I think the cold had something to do with it, no one wanted to get out from under those covers !
It might be Florida and it is cool out but not too cold but the air conditioner has a mind of its own and we all wake up huddled together, freezing in the night.
Tonight I will just turn the whole damn thing off and see what happens.
It will probably turn itself on and freeze us tomorrow.

Today's List of Things to Do is easy.
1- Closets/Throw Away ...
I will put on some good music, I think  Tango  will be the choice and I will open the windows and get to work.
Luckily it is not a huge job, considering I haven't even unpacked some boxes after arriving here.
Winter clothes ... real winter clothes .. are in the closet, easy to put right back into a box.

The one thing that can really brighten a person's outlook is the idea of Having a Choice.
Of course there are all levels of choice and happily this one is mine to make ..  based on the choices of myself and others. And the cats chose the other day, when we were listening to the radio talk about Tornados and Hurricanes.. some choices are just easier than others ...

More choices to come, stop and think about it ... How Many Choices Do You Make Each Day ?
It will make you laugh at how many there are, of all levels and importance ...

I hope your choices today are those that make a person happy, you know, chocolate or vanilla, silk or cotton, Paris or Buenos Aires ... you know, choices...

Today .... Let This Be You


Blogging, Puppies and Change

As some might already know, I have a photo blog on tumblr.
Every morning, tumblr sends me the newest blogs and blogs that are in the category of subjects that I like. My category has gotten smaller .. I am getting to be a picky old lady who no longer wants to see naked people unless they are babies and I am always ready for some cat/kitten,  dog/puppy photos.

Imagine my delight when I came across this on tumblr ..

Now my new morning routine is to sit here with a massive cup of coffee, I think it is the equivalent of 3 ordinary sized cups .. and I check my blogs then spend a good half hour or so, browsing the Other Blogs.
This one is my newest favorite and is guaranteed to start the day with a smile .. at least .. I have already laughed out loud this morning.

Give it a browse and tell me if you agree.
Does it make you want a cat or dog / kitten or puppy ?
I have enough cats, Thenk yew veddy much but I do want a dog .. a puppy for Merlin to ignore, for Minette to stalk and for Honey to arm wrestle with.

Not now- not yet .... Changes are coming, no pups allowed here, the cats were a BFD ... but times are changing .. stay tuned here .. I will try to keep you up on Things.
