Caught such a pretty sunrise a couple days ago. I haven't usually been up before the sun lately. Today I am, but it's 30 degrees, 100% humidity, and foggy out there this morning.
I actually played with the weekly zendala the last couple days.
It went places I didn't expect...
...as doodling often does.
I had a wonderful pajama-movie-day birthday. Watched Lincoln (very good) and Killing Them Softly (odd, violent movie with no real ending). It was a warm sunny day in the 30s. We had several last week. So many that the parking lot turned from an ice skating rink during the nights into a lake during the days.
Karma was loving the morning sun...
...and I'd find her on my chair by the craft table soaking up rays.
When I wanted to sit there I would just roll her away and grab another chair...which she found so very annoying. She was pawing and beating up the chair in protest--so I tossed her new catnip toy at her...
...which she grabbed with her teeth and played with for a while.
A pause to rest--clutching her toy.
We played a little catch-my-toes, too.
It's so nice to have Karma back to her goofy, opinionated self. :) She's lost 2-3 pounds over this illness. (Weighing her at home isn't as accurate or easy since she doesn't like to be picked up, either.)
What a birthday! I have to tell you--people literally shocked me to tears this year. Several times. I won't name names, but two people sent me Amazon gift credits and another sent money toward Karma's vet bill (and a couple more offered)!! It's not often you will find me speechless. ;) I got comments and cards and letters and emails and ecards...it was a marvelous birthday! My soul must have really needed it because I felt it lift and lift. My heartfelt thanks to every one of you. Bless you!! :):)
Leah stopped by to cut my hair on Wednesday--so I maybe lost an ounce or two, myself--LOL! I'm not moving quickly yet (as if I ever do anymore), but I have been working on replying to letters. Next project will be making thank you cards!!
Funny, I woke up with this repeating thought in my head a few days ago--that we humans are both mundane and profound...mundane and profound...mundane and profound. Like an ear worm thought, it's been in my head for days. Makes me smile, actually. Anyways, just wanted to pop in and say a very happy hi from Fargo. Many thanks and may your life be overflowing with blessings, too!! :) :)
