Not so Sad Wednesday - BlogPaws Bloghop 11-22-2017

It's the day before Thanksgiving 2017.  I have so much to be thankful, I do.  You go through life pining over what you don't have, where you fall short of your expectations, and not feeling appreciated by friends and family.  This year, I can honestly say I am not where I want to be at this stage in my life, but I like where I am and like what I have.  I am well sheltered, the cats, Mom and me are fed and clothed.  I have a job at a place I love, in a city I enjoy. Tensions are high around WDC, but I am finding time to get out and enjoy the opportunities; knit/ crochet groups, taking some cooking classes, PUDDLES!!!!

Lexi Liu and Moshe Moshi
The cats are getting to know each other better.  YaYa is still not bonding with the group, but when we are alone, she is the sweetest little thing. We are working through her allergy issues. Gomi still forages for food, but he is learning his boundaries. Lexi, though not liking YaYa, is warming up to Gomi well, even groomed each other a little yesterday. Moshe Moshi has a Doc appointment next week to check his general health. I think he'll do okay.

I don't know if we will get out a themed holiday card this year.  I had an idea in mind but will save it for a different project. We will take a group picture if I can pull it off and send it out.

I'm plugging away at the new blog format and image for next year.  Hard work but worth it (I hope). I am cooking for a holiday; leaving the job early to pick up a few last minute items. Still have to watch the calories, still have to monitor the blood pressure, still have to take my allergy medication, still blind.  Overall, we are surviving well.

I'm not where I want to be in life, but where I am is not so bad.

The Meir Cats and I are wishing all of my USA readers a full and happy holiday.  Remember and give to those in need this season, with food, clothing, and if you can, a forever home.


  1. It's great that you are getting out and doing some of the things you enjoy! That is so important to staying sane in this world. I hope that Ya Ya finds her way into the kitty social structure. She seems like the sweetest little girl. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope Moshe Moshi has a good checkup at the V-E-T. YaYa may just need more time to gain confidence and then I bet she'll be making furr-iends with the other kitties real soon. Snuggles!
