Noooooooooooooooooooo!!! Another year couldn’t have possibly flown by, but alas, it has! Seems like just yesterday I shared a post about Mia, Peanut, and Rolz turning 7, and now I’m sharing one to wish them a happy 8th birthday! So, without further adieu, Happy 8th Birthday to my precious, sweet darlings! Despite your adult age, you will always be kittens in my heart and I love you all so very much. I’ve watched you grow up – literally from the time you were in your mama Zoey’s belly, to now, where you’ve grown into such distinctly unique and wonderful beings. Read more
My kitties are very blessed. We have a nice home with lots of wonderful places they can go to rest, relax, play, hangout, or whatever. But there’s one room that’s extra-special. It’s the room with a view that I call the “leopard room.” It’s decorated from head to toe in a variety of leopard prints, knick-knacks, stuffed animals, cozy pillows, and more. It also has a window that not only allows a curious cat to see the comings and goings of the world outside – you know, like people walking their dogs, but it’s also host to an assortment of tantalizing birds and squirrels that like to frequent the other side. But even better, it’s the room that’s always bathed in a soft glow of amber light, with an inviting sun-puddle to nap on if a kitty so desires.
Not only do the cats love the room, but so do I. While it’s actually a guest bedroom, it’s where I go when I want some peace and quiet -whether to read, write, rest my head if I’m not feeling well, or if I just want to have a pile of cats cuddle around me. How about your house – do you have a room that’s extra-special to you and your cats?
Round and round we go – where we’re going to end up, none of us really knows…unless you’re a cat. Then it’s pretty much a no-brainer. Live in the moment. Enjoy what’s in front of you. Curl up and take a catnap. I think on Sunday’s that’s a good motto to live by. It’s just so hectic nowadays – between the constant barrage of never-ending sensational news headlines and media hype, social networking, maintaining a household, and the current state of affairs – it can consume every bit of energy you have and drain you to the point of mental exhaustion.

While it’s only a couple weeks into January, life has already hit me full speed. My day job has been especially tiring – from doing physical inventory counts to special projects that require an enormous amount of mental application. I’ve also had to take a road trip the past two consecutive weekends (averaging between 6 to 8 hours in the car each time) and as a consequence my brain is pretty fried right now. When I get both mentally and physically drained, sometimes the writer in me disappears and I find I need to channel my creative side as an outlet to help center my mind. Read more
We’re just a little over a week into the New Year and I’m already exhausted! Lots going on mentally and emotionally, so rather than let it overwhelm me, I’m going to step back and follow the example of my feline gang who are wise masters in the art of zen. This picture is just what I need to bring some peace into my day and I hope it does the same for you! Have a lovely Sunday and if you missed last week’s post where I shared my outlook and perspective for 2017 I hope you’ll take a minute to stop by. There’s some great pictures with inspirational quotes to help frame the year.
