Just Being on Caturday

in GEMSlast month (edited)

Today didn't start out perfect, or, at least that was my perception of it. A good cup of coffee and an attitude adjustment made it turn into a lovely day. Random thoughts drift in and out, never lingering long enough to ruin my day. I choose to see the best of possibilities, because otherwise, what's the point? Sometimes, it is things I say, to people I love.... sigh... I read somewhere that it takes three years for a person to learn how to use their tongue, but, it takes a lifetime to learn when and how to use it. Ironic, isn't it?


As uncomplicated as a cool breeze on a sunny day, taking pleasure in the company of another, stealing a few moments to read your thoughts, or catching the perfume of a heavenly scent…Every now and then, just being, does it for me. And so tonight, I just am.

Of course, it wouldn't be a post today without a little bit of kitty thrown in. Happy #Caturday!

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.

The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

Beautiful flowers with very well fed kitty!! Very happy kitty on a Caturday!

The kitty is well fed, isn't she? :) Her hardest job is to find that spot of the sun!

Sometimes just being, is just enough. Great shots, all of them :)

Sometimes, it is more than enough. I call that content.

Thanks for your kind words! Have a wonderful night.

Words....so powerful in the positive.... and negative.

We should study harder on what our tongues are doing.

.... and I'm not talking about porn. LOLOLOLOL !!!

Don't make me say something negative! :))

Good morning! It is raining up here and will be until Monday! Wait, let me think about something positive with that.... Nope. Not today. Rain, rain, go away.

Technically this is our fingers and not our tongues..... right?? ha

I'm told, but I refuse to accept it, that we will have rain of some sort through Wednesday. What do they know ?? !

It is sprinkly here now, but is also supposed to get up to 71 degrees this afternoon..... what ???

It is true though, on the positive side, that if it must be rainy, it is good that it will be fairly warm..... and not that freezey stuff.

There... did that work?

A little. I was warmer today than I thought it would be, so that was a saving grace.

It is always a good day for an attitude adjustment lol. Glad you managed to turn it on its head and make the best out of it regardless hon.

:)) We can all use one in some way. Good morning from here! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your always witty words, my friend. I hope you are having a wonderful evening and dinner was delicious.

Make me jealous! What did you make, my braai queen?

I enjoy stopping by your blog for my daily (or more often, nightly) inspiration and visual floral therapy!🌹

You look stunning in your footer selfie!
Perfect coiffure! @dswigle

I love seeing you and I need to get my lazy self out and about to check out more posts. I am so happy that we are starting to see the spring flowers, although few right now, I know what will be coming!

I change up the little footer photo every now and then, or even more. Anything but perfect! But thanks! :)) I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Very contemplative my friend. It's amazing the power of the tongue to build up or destroy. It's downright scary, really.

Beautiful kitty! Take care and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Oh, the tongue can be as loving as it is vicious, true? That is a barn kitty, but, he is always so content-looking. He loves living in the barn among the horses, and, puts his nose in the air when he is brought into the house. :))

Good morning from here! It is a rainy day!

Indeed, it can! We had smokey and foggy weather, but no rain. Very damp. Is it time yet for the cherry blossoms to be blooming there yet? I bet it's beautiful when they do.

Take care and have a wonderful week ahead!💜

WOW...There is a lot going on in this post i will just say beautiful flowers and nice kitty 😄
