Welcome one and all to the new space! :)

Stop by, say hi, and see the wonder of what's new...//

Back In...

Yep, I'm in it for good...

Sometimes we just need a little reminder to find our way.

Please visit my new website:

...and today's post (1/5/12)...Mucking Around.

OK... This format might not be so bad after all (says the girl ready to throw her computer out the window).

I know I said this was the year of making friends with my technology, but as in all relationships, sometimes you just need to know when to say when.

Stay tuned to this channel, too, if you please. I'll figure it out soon enough.

Perhaps if I breathe deeply and ask for guidance the answer will come...

Wish me luck!//

New Digs

Well gang, I'm moving up in the world...

with my own personal website and everything!

The New Year -- and the moxie I've gained after having "mastered" the iPhone (hahahahahaha!!!) -- gave me the courage to give it a go. And learn, and learn, and learn...and inevitably screw some things up...and learn some more.

After all, that's what this life's about anyway, isn't it?? : )

Never fear! I'll leave this page up for a while, with this post, and this link, so everyone can get their bookmarks updated, sign up for emailed posts on the other site, and whatever else it takes to see you all over there.

What's so great about that place?

The same interesting content : ) with a slightly different format, better functionality for comments (speak up folks!), greater ease of iPhone blogging (gotta love that!), and hopefully just a more beautiful experience over all.

To all of you who join me on my new website, I thank you for your loyal readership and your companionship on the journey.

See you on the flipside!

Close To You

"Just like me, they long to be, close to you." ~from the song Close To You by The Carpenters

We arrived home early this afternoon to a very lonely Bella. Even though she had a visitor each day, it occurs to me this is likely the first time she's been alone for any significant amount of time since she was found abandoned as a kitten.

: (

I don't blame her for literally chasing me through the house every time I left the room for the rest of the day.

We decided T should go get Trooper by himself while I stayed home with Bella.

A while later, when Trooper was home, and it was nap time : ) we all snuggled up together.

And the unthinkable happened.

Bella, who was laying on my chest, got up, turned around, crept down my legs to get closer to her puppy...

...and began licking Trooper's ear.

I held my breath.

Once Trooper realized what was happening, she raised her head, looked Bella in the eye regarding her closely...

...and put her head back down.

No harm, no foul.

I have to say, I expected something. Anything.



Between you and me, I think she kind of liked it.

I know Bella missed Trooper.

Maybe, just maybe, Trooper missed Bella, too.

New adventures for a new year...//

New Years Day

High winds and light snow kept us in today, happily eating, reading, watching movies, sipping spirits and otherwise easing into the new year.

My first accomplishment of the year besides a nice long meditation this morning?

Reading an entire book in almost one sitting -- The Hunger Games. I'm hooked and will undoubtedly pick up the second book in the series on our way back into town tomorrow.

It's almost indescribable how good it feels to race through a good book again. It's been far too long!

All in all, a great start to what is bound to be a fantastic year!

Sweet dreams to all and to all a good night!//
