Tuesday-9am

You've may have already figured out that I have decided to go back to random blogging again and just pop in when I have something to share.  I had wondered how I was going to change my blogging habits before these last couple months forced me on a kind of blogland vacation.  Now, easing my way back, I am going to have to play it by ear and find out what works best for me.  :)  I have finally caught up with emails, though!  Feels marvelous!  And soooo nice to be in touch again.  Now this week I can start reading blogs--whoohoo!  I may not be commenting as often--not sure--but know that I will at least be reading again and keeping up with what you all are up to.  
So happy!

Was a gorgeous day yesterday...
...with blue skies and fluffy white clouds. 
Warm enough (close to 30 degrees) to melt some snow. 
When you hear cars splashing through puddles you know spring is just around the corner.  
****
Karma got the funniest card from Patricia (friend since high school).  I just chuckle every time I see it so I just had to show you...
...and on the inside: 
She enclosed this catnip bag toy,,,
...and Karma loves it!  
Dozed off holding it... 
...until I interrupted her with the camera--LOL! 
Karma's back to begging for her string toys and attacking them in her normally brief feisty way.  She's perkier and up and down and here and there again.  Granted, she still needs her beauty sleep, but she's back to watching CatTV on the chair by the window and doing all her normal "Karma" things.  
****
I've been busy replying to some absolutely wonderful letters.  Yes--snail mail--ahhh!  You know how I dearly love my snail mail.  I've already received some birthday cards, too--and even got a St. Patty's Day card and a sympathy card for Ruby.  Caught up with two weeks of laundry.  I know, I usually wash once a week, but I was saving all my good hours to work on the invitations.  When it came down to fitting in laundry or some playtime...well, the zendala won.
  Priorities, right?  ;)  LOL!
****
  I'm being very careful not to overdo anything at all and spread out what I am doing sparsely over the day.  So far, so good.  :)  I most certainly do not want to annoy and set off my moody old body for any reason--ROFL!  I have learned about patience from many angles these past years.  Things are going very well.  The sun is shining.  It's 3 degrees, but supposed to maybe hit 25 today.  I am looking forward to doing something creative this week.  Life is good.  I have a big old sappy smile on my face as I am typing this.  
Happy Tuesday!!  :) :)

  10. OMG that picture of Karma falling asleep with her toy is so precious, does she ever use it as a pillow and fall asleep with her head on it? Sweepie does that, even if it's a hard toy like a ball lol and I too love snail mail, sooooooo much better than electro mail =D xoxo
