Happy birthday, Michael!!
I can almost play a song on the ukulele.
Nero wanted to get Mom’s ukulele working, and I was able to repair the broken tuning peg and get new strings. We discovered that it’s a baritone uke and Nero knows the soprano, so he ended up getting his own and now I’m learning on the baritone. After one day, I’m making pretty good progress on “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” The F chord is a challenge.
Fur Elise is now part of the clan.
Mozart and Wolfgang have been very loving and patient with her growling and swatting a bit. Today, Mozart gave her a few licks on the head, and Wolfgang gave her a kiss, too, and she didn’t hiss! She loves cuddling on Trav’s chest while he reclines on the sofa.
Trav’s questions helped me become more focused.
We were talking about work and billable hours. I’ve been doing the minimum and need to do better – I’ve been kind of rudderless and purposeless in that department lately. Time to put in time!
I enjoyed a good meal and cribbage games with Clyde and Carol.
For about five years now, I’ve been going over almost every week to eat dinner and play cards. We have fun!
The universe presented us with a cat.
We didn’t want Mozart to be alone. Meet Fur Elise!
I had a productive day.
Repaired the fence, then cleaned up the yard a little so I could enjoy the nice weather, and sat outside to work the rest of the day. The second frame on the left is from the sheriff that went to the neighbor’s house this morning… you can see where he turned to peek in the neighbor’s yard, probably checking for criminals or something. I love the sand in Florida because I get to be a mini detective to figure out what went by.
We made cookies.
Nero and I whipped up a batch of peanut butter cookies. They came out good!
Amadeus was a good kitty.
We would like to have kept him longer than 2 years, but the universe had other plans.
We’ve made it to the top seven times.
The Weeki Wachee is a really beautiful river, with crystal clear spring water, lots of birds and turtles, and manatees. It’s a 6-mile upstream paddle and then a lovely float back down.
Stephanie thought of me.
It’s a beautiful, HUGE, super soft beach towel.
I’ve added some things to Trav’s list.
We have so many routines and ways of doing things that I don’t even realize, because he’s always here. Currently working on list 3 of things I love about Trav.
Mmmm, fresh seaweed!
The Gulf of Mexico provided a tasty snack on my Honeymoon Island adventure the other day – Graceful Redweed.
The kitty came when I called him.
Amadeus is Mozart’s brother. This event is one of the happiest moments of my life.
We have a new president!
Dad would have been so pleased. Trav put on his first speech as president elect, and between him and Harris, it made me cry with joy. To see people so happy and to hear hope and a promise to help bring people together, my heart is full.
I get a warm fuzzy when I arrive home after dark and the light is on.
My honey cares about me!
I’ve been feeling really good since I started yoga with Julia Marie.
She’s a great yoga teacher and joyful presence (Prime Video). My posture is better and I’m feeling stronger.
We had Dad for a good, long time.
He lived an adventurous life and made many people happy along the way, with his gentle and kind soul. I have many good memories and will miss him a lot.
