Jill sits on stool to look out window… as Kit Kit sits on window ledge outside…

Our kitchen and living room has an open wall… and the cats love to sit on the ledge where they can see us from both directions…

Kit Kit has taken over my computer chair to sleep…

They do this for about a week or two… and then find a new spot!…

Jill is liking the back of the couch for the moment…

but, will change also in time…

My “Heart” Flag is blowing with the high winds we had yesterday…

Kitchen window…

I found the Heart Window Clings in a bag of things I bought last year…

I guarantee…”Dirt Cheap”… and had forgotten about…

LOVE IT!

Lots of Paper Plates / Napkins were in the bag also… enough for the rest of the month!…

Need candy… (conversation hearts???) or (red hots???) for my candy jar with the red bow…

what do you think?…

and a sparkly red heart for the door with a new red/white bow…

Very simple… but, I like!

Up Close and Personal!

My old cat… Jill… has NEVER been one to sit in your lap… or be too close…

She does LOVE me!… and has slept above my head numerous times at night…

but…

lately…

she has either decided cuddling is not such a bad thing or she loves the quilt I put over me when I sit on the couch at night…

This is what I get every time for the last couple of weeks… when I lay down on the couch to watch TV or nap…

She makes her way upon me…

turns several times kneading the cover with her paws to make it even softer…

the settling thing that cats do…

Stretches her paws… washes her face by licking her paw and rubbing her face and ears…

stretches out her toes showing her nails…

and looks me right in the face!…

I pet and rub her until she finally gives that sigh of sleepiness and contentment

Whatever it is…

old age… (she’s 15)…

the quilt… (old and soft)… and probably has my scent…

listening to my heart beating under her ear…

or it’s so nice and warm with the weather changing…

She has definitely been UP CLOSE and Personal lately!

Kit Kit Claimed IT!

I had always refused to buy a recliner for our home…

Everyone who had them… seemed to live their lives from them…

Watching TV…

Eating…

Reading…

I’m not against a comfy place…

but, I watched as how people never got up and took a walk…

went outside…

busied themselves with a hobby…

I hope you are getting my side of this reasoning…

But, when Bobby came home from the hospital…

I decided I might have too “give in”…

with an unwilling heart!…

I went to look for one…

Some are so big…

I don’t have the space…

Some were too soft… too “cushiony”…

He would never be able to get out of it…

I finally saw one that spoke to me…

A compromise…

made of a Wicker Look Resin Material…

small enough for the living room area…

Comfy cushion

Neutral color to blend with other things in room…

it reclines…

it sits half-way up…

it sits up straight…

Actually it’s an outside piece of furniture…

but, I am always looking to use pieces in different ways…

and I won’t have to worry about Bobby getting to use to it…

because Kit Kit has claimed it!…

Unpredictable Cats???

Cats are so unpredictable…I think I know where my cat Jill’s, favorite napping place is …and then she switches on me…Sometimes it’s under a certain bed, sometimes it’s in the basement, sometimes it’s our bedroom , sometimes it’s the guest bedroom…I do see a pattern though…Some place quiet and peaceful  …Not much traffic…Her new place is outside on our deck…She lies on the table in the screen tent Oblivious of anything going on around her…I can see her from my kitchen window…She makes me smile …We’ve had her for about 12 years, so of course she is definitely a part of our family…We see her ageing…This area makes her feel safesleeping soundly as I watch…Warmed by the sunlight filtering through the screened walls …I walk out to pet her…I can’t resist…She looks at me with her sleepy eyes…and stretches for me to pet and rub her back …Her fur is so soft and warm from the sun…It flys through the air…little tufts shedding…I’ll brush her later once she has had her morning nap…Go back to sleep Jill…enjoy your new napping area…

“My Kids!”…

Unpredictable is such a good word to describe the students we worked with…Every day was an experience…full of unusual happenings…We never knew what they might wear… that they shouldn’t, what they might bring that they shouldn’t, what they might say… that they shouldn’t!… Books that they wanted to read or color instead of their classwork, funny hats …even though it wasn’t “Hat Day”, T-Shirts or sweatpants  when our school required uniformsInk pens to do their math, although they would need to erase 100 times… Food/candy in their desk to sneek and munch on when trying to read…Cologne or perfume sprayed so that we would have to open all the windows to breatheSmall individual pencil sharpeners out all the time with shavings  falling all over the floor or taking over the inside of their desks …when we had a perfectly good one on the wall… Interesting to say the least …unpredictable always!
