Flexibility

Posted on

There are friends and people in your life that are only meant to be kept for a season.  The length of that season is up to you.   I’m told that people can’t and don’t change but we do every day.  No one day is the same.  Grace, the tabby cat, does have a routine but she is always flexible.  Sometimes change is a good thing.  It is hard but worth the effort.

Dumpsters for Mental Clutter

Posted on

I am good at getting rid of physical clutter.  I like my surroundings to have some sense of order, and I have no problem throwing things away.  I am reading with interest “declutter” books by Netflix star and author Marie Kondo and the book on “order” by author Gretchen Rubin.

Grace, the Tabby cat,  also is particular about her space.  She does not like rope-made scratching posts, and she only wants a few toys.  She does have a preference for laying atop newspapers, but the papers must be changed every few days.

It’s mental clutter that I struggle with such as rejections, clients who treat you poorly,  judging others, envy, and people who try to draw you into their negativity.    I use prayer, meditation, being with real friends and physical exercise to help clear my mind; then it’s easier to create dumpsters to toss all the junk away.

It’s A New Year

Change. Change is something that we all face.  No matter how old, or what gender or race or what is in your pocketbook.  Change is ongoing and constant.  We don’t control Change but we can learn to manage and accept it.

Getting Ready for Christmas

Grace is an interesting cat.  She does not like traditional “pet” toys.  I am still trying to figure out what to get her for Christmas.  In the meantime, I guess I will let her rest under the Christmas tree.  

Preparing for Grace

Posted on

Grace is coming to stay with me for a few days as CCL has to tend to some things.   Grace is the cat formerly known as “Cher.”  You may recall from an earlier post ( Sonny Gets Adopted-https://catsandallthat.com/2018/05/19/sonny-gets-adopted/  ) .  She is a rescue Tabby who had been abused and overfed.  She is now a  healthier, happier, delightful member of the CCL household.

Grace will, of course, eat special food during her stay in Washington, D.C. (CCL is picky) and have her water served courtesy of a filtered system (don’t want her drinking DC water).  Special playthings and cushions are being set up.

Not sure if she will attack my vinyl blinds ( previous sets famously demolished by Roxie, Koko and Jean Claude in the past) but we will see.

I do know that by her namesake she will bring peace and certainty of spirit.  She is also full of love.
