Preparation

Posted on

I admit it.  I am a perfectionist.  I like things that have order and purpose.  That’s the thing about sharing custody of cats.  They are clean and persnickety but they need care and your furniture is subject to their moods.   Cats rule.  This week Koko comes to stay with me for an extended time period.  As I am a big fan of HGTV, particularly “Fixer Upper,” I’ve begun the work needed to make her as comfortable as possible.  Her jumping chair is strategically placed for her to jump to the top of my dining room hutch and of course,  custom blinds have been installed in the porch window of my house for her viewing pleasure.

I am a perfectionist but I’m learning.

 

“Real” Estate

Posted on

Real Estate is booming in my Brookland DC neighborhood. This blog made me think about Koko and Jean Claude.

Cats & All That ™

As many of you know Koko and Jean Claude divide their time between my house and CCL’s house.  Lately however, they have acquired some real estate in my house – in fact Jean Claude recently built a second story.  There  are companies such as “Four Paws” that build such houses for cats.

Can’t We Just All Get Along

The divisions and differences in the U.S. have never been greater according to many – no not along political lines but apparently in the animal world as well.  Apparently, cats are now allowed at the Westminster Dog Show.  Shockwaves and alarm have put the dog show world in chaos.

Here Is Wonderful

Posted on

For  many  2016 was a tough year.  For some including me it was a time  to let go of some situations and people who were not conducive to personal or professional growth.  We’re here  now  -2017 has arrived.  The New Year brings us promise  and hope for positive change.   As I move in a new  direction  with a new year  in bloom, despite challenges, there is a  is a lot to be grateful for  and I am happy that I am present.    I learned to enjoy life without the need for prestige.   I have a wonderful group of friends I enjoy.   I  live in a wonderful neighborhood, Brookland, DC.  It has taken  me years to get to a place where I choose peace and I am still not an expert.   It helps that Koko is one of my “life coaches.”    Though she likes attention,  for Koko it’s often a  matter of finding the right box for a nap.
