I thought Miss Karma needed a touch of spring so I drug in the frozen cat grass planter from the porch, let it defrost, planted some new cat grass seed, and set it up under a light on my craft table (since we didn't have any sun for many days).
Where have I been all these days? I have been right here, of course--diligently focused on my online class. I wake up (am on days now--tada!), no TV, and just start in on the class. I take laptop breaks in my comfy chair so that I can pretty much keep up with blogs and emails. I have been spending the better part of my day immersed in thought, I guess you could say.
It has been warmer the past couple days! It is 33 degrees right now as I am typing this and the sun is out again--whoohoo!! Chunks of ice and snow have been falling off the roof. It's supposed to go back below zero by Sunday, but this is really nice!
Karma is even keeping me company all morning--lying on the floor (sans cat bed or crinkle bag) under the table while I do my classwork. The floor isn't as cold--hehe! ;)
Oh, and I forgot to post this. It completely slipped my mind, to be honest, about calling the fire marshall to ask about them clearing the sidewalk from the emergency exit. Maybe somebody else did? Suddenly they decided to use the snow plow to clear it off. Odd way to do it, but it has been cleared twice now. Nice! Who cares how they do it, right? ;)
Karma's been one happy grass-eating cat the past couple days! [Note: She really isn't quite as fat as she looks. See how thick her fur is. Karma is like a cushy teddy bear--hehe!]
Locate the perfect spot and take a big mouthful.
Gnaw the clump of grass off with the side of your mouth.
Lick your chops...
...well and long.
Australia was hit with double cyclones, it snowed in Texas and in the desert out west...strange weather we're having all over. I pray everyone is safe and sound.
I have six more days of the class--more if they take another break day. I have already gathered up a stack of books to read and CDs to listen to because I want to keep up some kind of daily spiritual practice once this class is done. I can't continue to spend almost all day every day on it like I have been, but I want to figure out something that will work well for me. :)
Anyways, Karma and I are doing well. I just heard another thunderous chunk let go off the roof. Life is good. :):)
