She Ruled the Roost

This girl, such a smart savvy feline that occupied our home and hearts since 2009.

She and her crew often wandered over to our home.

I recognized leadership skills in her, when she was very young. I don’t think that I can express all that she meant to me, to us at this time. What I can say, is that she was smart as a whip, entertaining and curious. She was playful and she was very quick to train us on her preferences. Out of the four cats that we had, she was the social butterfly and didn’t run and hide when we had company.

A little snow, no problem.

Where have you been young lady?

Dear Ally, thank you for filling our lives with your charm and often making us laugh, at your shenanigans. We will be lost for awhile, until we get our bearings. You will always be missed, but I am thankful, for all the many memories, we have to hold in our hearts.

Prepare for Lift Off

We recently had the pleasure of young life come to visit. It livened us up and for several days, our blood flowed as it hadn’t in a long time. I had opportunity to be silly and participate in silly songs and actions. Grandpa G got to lighten up a little I mean a lot, we ventured out to places that we had not been too for a while. We were delighted to finally meet Chloe. Big brother Corbin was very much intrigued by what he saw at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. I enjoy capturing those moments, that make me wonder what they are thinking about at the time..

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic

 

It’s that time of year.. Current pictures of my grandkiddos is always a blessing and much appreciated. They certainly are a gift from God. As I continue on my journey of 100 days of thanks, I am grateful for the opportunity to observe their growth, and see them as I can. I applaud my children, for the great job of raising their children, in happy and nurturing households. Would you join me and others, this new school season and pray for all children that are going to school? For the little one’s in pre-school and daycare centers, and daycare providers and teachers.

poem

Friends in High Places

in the simple life I live, some days that is

i explore and look around

last week they caught my eye

and this is what i found..

small enough

to nestle in a flower

and sit contently for hours

maybe it was peering eyes of the intruder

that gave reason for hesitation

to leave it’s place of safety

on the high place

of a hollyhock plant…
