This is Merlin. Or, as he is affectionately known, Merrman the Purrman. It's the little jazz kitty, all grown up... He is by far one of the most laid back cats we have ever had, and that's saying a LOT! lol He's quite a literary cat, and anytime he sees a book or magazine laying on a table, he's all over it. Literally.
Ah...it was a gorgeous day here on the Prairie. About 70 degrees and sunny and I had a girlfriend over for lunch and made quiche and salads. Afterwards we sat out on the front porch in the big green rocking chairs and soaked up the sunshine. It was a delightful day. I got up real early this morning and got the office finished up, cleaned house a little and mopped the wood floors. I spruced things up a bit...new tablecloth on the table, burned some sandalwood incense, and opened the windows all up again. I took care of the neighbors dogs for the last time (they came home today) and even found time for some meditation and prayer here in my newly organized and born again office. lol
My friend and I walked around the yard and took note of all the greening up that is going on. Even the Japanese maple has buds on it already. Typically, she oohed and ahhed over everything and all I could see was all the work I haven't done yet and need to get busy on. I'm really looking forward to my yards this year, even though it is a lot of work,. it's good work. Soul food.
It must be spring...I have ants in the bathroom!!!! lol
Oh yeah, DJan. ES&H is Experience, Strength and Hope. I forgot that you had asked!
I'm ready to hit the hay. Tomorrow we are carpooling up to the recovery house for the womens meeting, and then I have to be back and at physical therapy by 3:45. After that, a bunch of women are gathering at one's house to watch The Secret. I've told the Irishman that I will likely be gone before he gets home from work, so he's on his own. I'm really looking forward to meeting some new friends and catching up with old ones. And of course, we'll be eating. lol
I'm planning to get some baby chicks this week...Will keep them in the house until they're big enough to hold their own out there in the henhouse. I'm excited. I love baby chicks...no rooster this time though...he was way more hassle than he was worth.
Count your blessings...and make gratitude a gift you choose every day!!
