The flow of time brings us together In a microscopic moment That lasts for eternity Souls conjoined for a step Explore for a season Search for answers Look with me Spirit Seek Us Meaning Push forward For a moment On the long journey We have only one quest Forever breaking new trails By the river of existence Forever searching for its meaning
This was written for Colleen’s weekly Poetry Challenge. This week the challenge was to use the two words Life and Move, but using only synonyms of those words. I decided to do a double-nonet so I could get that hourglass shape…
Hi! I am going to start this smile with a sad story. We lost our cat Albert last week. You can read here. Albert has not been healthy for literally years, and the last few months… anyway, we already had an appointment to see kittens at a shelter on Saturday, so up we went.
Anyway, here is Alexander.
He is about 8 months old, very sweet and gentle. He quickly got past the barriers we put up (lol) and explored the entire house. Our remain cat, Grace Kelly, has not warmed up yet, but he’s super interested in her. The dogs are super interested in him! But he isn’t ready quite yet…
Hi all. Odd week all around, both here at home and out in the world. Some things were, well, we’ll ignore them for now, while others were worth a smile or two. Thinking of that, if you need a smile or two, just click some of the links below!
Hello and welcome. Come on over and I’ll get a strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is actually relatively warm and a little later in the day than I usually post, so you can have something cool, like water, if you’d like. It is warmish, but not as warm as a few other days. It is also cloudy, but a nice weekend day. And it does feel like spring. Where are we? Even regular visitors may not recognize the new photo at the top as being from New Hampshire (note, I am using this one for now because it says “New Hampshire” a lot louder than the other).
First thing is the sad news that we lost one of our cats, Albert. His health had been deteriorating for quite a while, but the last two weeks it took a nose dive. We’ll miss him. You can read more here.
We lost Albert last night. It wasn’t a surprise at all. I was almost surprised he made it through the day. He was sick a few years ago and never fully recovered. Since then, it has been off and on for him and thought he was on his last legs, only for him to bounce back.
I didn’t mean the little pun in the last paragraph, but Albert had only three legs, so “last legs” might not have been a great choice of words. He was also FIV positive, that is like HIV, but “F” for “Feline” instead of “H” for “Human”. I won’t say he had kitty AIDS, but he did have an immunity issue and we were told we would most likely have him for less than five years. It was over ten. I am not sure how old he was when we got him – they said “Two”, but my guess is older. So he would have been at least 12.
I spent last week at my place down on Cape Cod. I also took Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off of work, so had a little “Spring Break/Vacation!” I did the usual things that I do when I am on Cape Cod. I kayaked several times, I took walks in the woods and by a saltwater marsh. I took walks on my favorite beach, including going out onto the sand-flats at low tide, ran by the beach (the access road next to the beach, but not on the actual sand), and other things.
It was a nice, relaxing week. i got plenty of air and sun :) It was a great get away.
