October

Posted on

Another from Octobers past.

Cats & All That ™

Welcome Fall.  Fall really is my favorite season.  It leads to Thanksgiving and Christmas – family, food and amazing wardrobe choices. I like October best in Washington DC where I  live.  The flowers are still in bloom and  even my rose bushes  are making a comeback .  The weather is sunny and crispy with beautiful colors of trees emerging.   I still run errands in my white yes white flats and wear sandals where it suits the occasion.  It is a month of  birthdays of my favorite people.  Perfect time for festivals and butternut squash soup.

October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Donate to these causes if you can.

Fall

Posted on

From October past…fall is upon us once again.

Cats & All That ™

There is something wonderful and inevitable about the fall season.  It is the start of trees losing their leaves and revealing their true colors, cooler temperatures, fall fashion and for most of us, a return to school and more intense work – budgets, hiring decisions.  It is also the start of many new and exciting things as we enter into the holiday season. Somehow for me, and it appears for Grace the cat, the fall brings a sense of peace and of purpose.

Peace in the Rain

Posted on

Once again today it is raining. Thought it was time to refresh.

Underneath my house is a small sitting nook. As it rains I am marching in place in the nook to the tune of Roy Ayers “Everybody Loves the Sunshine.” Nearby Grace relaxs on a chair.
We are in the midst of quite a lot right now but even during the rain we can find time to relax and get some peace.

From last year

Cats & All That ™

Today, Grace AKA “Diva Cat” and I sat out back and watched two squirrels chase each other up and down the big tree in my yard.

For the squirrels fun. For us peace.
