 Night , Moon and Stars

Setting moon
tree branch clock below the stars
Timeless peace
I am so very thankful for my wonderful
husband; talented, can fix anything, kind, generous, 
wonderful sense of humor and patient!
The list goes on and on!!
This week has been a difficult week for our
little neighborhood. One of our neighbors

of us look around and count our blessings.

 There will be a full moon tonight! 

It's usually referred to as a Wolf Moon because "wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time."

1. When I run out of energy, I use a chocolate candy bar as a substitute.
2. I don’t understand why the days are flying by.
3. Summertime is the best time to have a picnic. 
4. It seems like I’m the only one who empties all the wastebaskets.

Wordless Wednesday January 5, 2022

Lots of words- so much for being Wordless!

While we were in Mexico in early November Lucy
was boarded in a cat only space- unfortunately
for whatever reason, as she has stayed there before,
she started to scratch herself on the back of her neck.
And then scratch all over her neck. Yikes.
When we got back after being gone 2 weeks she
had some issues and we promptly took her to
the veterinarian and they treated her scratched sores
and also gave her a perky pink pedicure to keep
her back claws from doing any more damage. 


Her scratchy sores are almost all healed up
and she is needless to say Happy to be home!
From now on we will have someone come to our 
home and spend time with her and feed her. 
After all she is 11 years old and set in her ways!
And with all the Covid nonsense we will not be 
going any where for quite a while!

Happy Tuesday! January 4, 2022
