Your Space: Paws Make the Difference

Posted on


Although she still comes to  Brookland, DC periodically for a visit, Koko spends most of her time now at  her Philadephia residence with CCL.  The Philly townhouse does not provide much in terms of yard space but it does have a spacious basement where Koko seems quite content. After more cement was added,  Koko  put her own decorating touches on the floor of the basement in CCL’s  house.  HGTV take note!

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.

Peace

There are some who seek drama and excitement at every turn.  Life for them is reality TV – anything but real – never peaceful.

The soul  needs the subtle nuturing  that only a moment of quiet  and peace can bring – ok maybe in Brookland DC birds are still  chirping.   Try a quiet prayer, look up, a yoga pose – but a moment

Regardless of religious belief or practice, there are ways to find a moment for soul renewal – even if it’s just to sit in one’s backyard with a good book for five minutes.image

Custom Blinds

Posted on

Custom blind companies do a booming business the Washington, D.C. area where CCL and I live.  We both have used  the services of such companies and the results have been great.  Still, there are rooms in my house where installation of  custom blinds, curtains or even shades would not be a viable option for Jean Claude and Koko.  They like to look out the windows of various rooms, particularly my bedroom and my living room.   Jean Claude as expressed his desire opening at first destroying the plastic blinds that I have in my bedroom, now he simply pats on the blinds each morning so I will raise them for his viewing pleasure.

The living room is another matter.  As you can see I have found a solution that suits the needs of the cats.
