This will have to be quick as I am fading fast. The day started at the vet with Chip the peeing cat. As the vet examined him and started rattling off the list of test she wanted to run (and I saw my savings account draining as she spoke), she had the stethoscope on him... Continue Reading →
May 3 – A bittersweet birthday – with more pee!
After yet another puddle of pee was found when I got downstairs this morning I've made an appointment for Chip to go to the vet tomorrow morning to check for any health issues causing the unapproved peeing. Honestly I hope there is something psychically wrong because while that may cost $$, at leas it would be a... Continue Reading →

It’s Thanksgiving Eve, and all through the house….
...not a creature was stirring.... wait..wait...wrong holiday. I gotta say though, it kinda feels like that other holiday-eve. The house is pretty clean. There are a few lights around the windows. There's food filling the fridge ready to be roasted/tossed together/crock potted: Those are fresh, chopped green beans above the turkey - ready... Continue Reading →
Cats, flowers, and the moon – oh my!
Mini Daffodils all confused and blooming in October Does anyone know which planet is right there next to the moon in the sky? It was also super bright Wednesday night. So those are my samples as I keep trying to learn how to use the new Canon EOS Rebel. So many auto settings that I... Continue Reading →
