“Go away! This is my house!”
My heart got lost a couple of days ago after discovering this critter in the back yard. After two nights of intermittent sleep and two trips to the vet, it looks like I have a new baby!
Although my heart is in a good place, my head is reeling! What have I done? We have worked so hard to eliminate the obstacles to traveling….. quit the part time job, turned the rental property over to a management company and found a part-time home for the two cats we already own. Why can’t I just be logical, pull up a cold heart and continue simplifying our lives? I did try….closed the door on him at least twice!
Been so distracted….could not even remember if I put on the rinse while shampooing my hair, missing my turns while driving. Completely lost my piece of mind, going crazy, letting the little cat’s presence disrupt my flow.
Now, four days into this process, I’m slowly feeling sane again. It will all work out somehow as the compulsion to rescue him was just too strong.
Princess, our 9 year old rescue
New cat…still unnamed…9 months to a year old
I’ve had a birthday during these upsetting few days….now 64 years old! Can’t help but think….if the new cat lives 20 years, I’ll be 83! Hope I don’t turn into one of those COCL…(crazy old cat ladies!)…….who am I kidding, I’m already there!
Proud to report that the reflectix project is completed and hope to have a dark trailer while sleeping in Alaska. I cut out the material larger than the windows and bound it with metal tape.…hope to hold it in place with curtain pins and cubicle clips.
The long one will go above the side dinette tucked behind the overhead lights. (That’s Sheba, the Siamese, caught in the picture.) The reflectix has great insulating properties but hope we won’t ever need it to protect us from cold.
Besides working on the windows, we have been enjoying the spring weather and playing in the yard.
New bird feeder!
New figs and leaves forming on the fig tree.
Thrift on the driveway wall….
Lots of our flowers came from the former owners. This looks like a ruffled jonquil…name unknown.
It’s been a week full of birthdays. Ice cream and cake this afternoon at my mom’s celebrating 3 generations of birthdays: stepfather, age 87, niece, age 5 and yours truly.
We should be on the road by the middle of next week heading to the Townsend rally. The weather forecast looks troublesome but it could always change. Looking forward to catching up with everyone and seeing the spring wildflowers.
Maybe I’ll call him Sir William. He needs to be of royalty to co-exist with a Princess and a Queen Sheba.
I’m not the only one smitten.
