Did you miss me? I missed blogging. My computer was "on vacation". That's what they say when they go to the Betty Ford of computer places, right? Mine needed some serious detoxing, but now she's back, and feeling much perkier. Can't say as she looks any younger, but she's healthy, and much less moody, so perhaps we can finish the new website in the next few days, get some work done on the decorating book, and maybe up the blog frequency. One step at a time, of course.
I had some non-cyber adventures while disconnected from the net world. I've been on a spiritual quest to become a bit more, well, zen. To go joyfully with the flow, in cooperation with the universe. Not drowsily calm (even I can't imagine me at anything less than low bounce, and I can imagine almost anything), but not so jerked around by outside forces. "Be still and know..." and all that. My friends Ben, Zack and Joey had some fun giving me a midterm test in this course.
These three furballs, one of whom dodged the camera, belong to my friend Beth, who trusts me to feed them and tuck them in for the night when she travels. This time, they made me work to deserve her trust. Beth adopts cats, and lets them live in their preferred environment. These three prefer to be outdoor cats, and so they have the roam of the countryside by day, but at night, she likes them tucked into their cathouse, safe from coyotes and teenage drivers. The last time I did this was in the winter, when the kitties liked to be inside their heated home, and were already waiting when I arrived to feed them and lock the gate.
Early autumn is a different story.
