Christmastime is Here

Grace loves her time under the Christmas tree.

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.

Choose Peace

Posted on


Koko, the domestic shorthair and Jean Claude, the Black Bombay live the life. They eat, venture outside a bit, play and sleep. They enjoyed Christmas especially helping to unwrap presents.

Yes we are in the midst of the holiday season. New Year’s is coming. Christmas is past. Kwanzaa is here. These events implore upon us to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, enjoy good food, fun, rest, relax and find spiritual and life renewal.

Still there are a lot of people who choose negativity. They show you their dark side : envy, naysaying or inappropriate behavior all the while proclaimIng their good intentions. Many also live in a constant state of turmoil or indecision and want you to embrace their drama. They want to drag you into their nonsense.

It is time to cut the cord. Banish these bottom feeders from your life. It is time to seek new options, new horizons, positivity, hope. Choose peace.


Jean Claude Chillin During the Holidays


Two Days Before Christmas

Posted on

I just finished watering snapdragons. Beautiful, pink, flourishing, it’s December 22. Jean Claude was enjoying the warm weather, nestled in the grass and quietly observing his surroundings. No birds really to chase. My neighbors have not let the dogs out. It’s just quiet. Just two days before Christmas. Two days before Roxie and Jean Claude go to what will now become their primary resident at CCL’s house. But for now we are all now taking a much needed rest. Roxie for her part spends a lot of time watching the Christmas tree and listening with me to TD Jakes.
