After a short time of mourning we welcomed two new cats to our home.
We did not travel very much in 2012 but there were a few day trips to Boston, plus a long weekend or two also.
Where were you last night when 2012 turned into 2013?
Is that where you’d wanted to be?
I had my head on my pillow and my eyes were shut, probably sound asleep, as the clock reached 12-midnight. I had been reading in bed since about 10 pm but my eyes, along with the rest of me were tiring. I think I had turned the light off around 10:35. At 10:58 I eyed the bedside clock as I heard my husband entering our bedroom. That is all I remember until waking on New Years Day 2013. I was happy to be home and tucked into my own bed. I am quite certain home is where our cats preferred their parents to be too. After all it was their first New Years Eve in a new home.
Use your voice, make a choice.
They hiss and hesitate in passing.
But Thunder comes down the stairs,
and Lightning fleas up very quickly,
Each returning to their home territory.
What makes you smile like nothing smile like nothing else can?
At this particular point in my life my new cat Thunder makes me smile like nothing else can. She is independent at times, as any cat ought to be. Yet at other times she is a lap cat or cuddly cat. She has a habit of rolling on to her back, crossing her front paws, and giving the most longing look. Playing with her toy on a stick is what she wants when she does that.
Summer Solstice 2012
So today, June 20, 2012, is the longest day of the year and the North Pole is tipped toward the sun more than on any other day, while the South Pole is tipped away from the sun making it the shortest day of the year for the Southern Hemisphere. Now the longest day of the year is not expected to be the hottest day of summer but the temperature predicted for an afternoon high today is well above my comfort zone. It is going to be bad enough that I did make the effort of watering my poor little vegetable plants this morning. Time will tell whether the plants or I wilt the most. Actually I know the answer. I am not going to wilt too much because I am going to indulge in spending most of the day in air conditioning.
My cats, Thunder and Lightning are taking today easy too.
