These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Goin' To Kansas City . . . .

I'm in Kansas City. The day seemed every bit as long as I thought it would. There were no problems with the trip other than a few minutes delay leaving DFW putting me about a half hour late arriving here. But getting up so early, driving 3 hours, and then flying and waiting for another seven hours makes it a long day. And when I discovered just a while ago that one of the outside pockets was badly ripped during the flight, I wasn't very happy either. Fortunately a small gift I brought to Caroline and Laura was intact inside the suitcase.

I'm so ready to get these next few days over and done. There is much to do and little time. I said a couple days ago that it looks like I will have lots of time here, but I knew that there would be out-of-schedule matters that would creep in to fill the time, and already that has happened. Nothing big, just little things here and there making it obvious that I can't drag my feet for one moment. At least I won't be bored, eh?

Just a bit ago, Sophie, C & L's dog came in and looked at her bed that I am borrowing for these few days, and she just stopped dead still, looking at all my things on the bed, and she seemed to be a bit consternated! You could almost hear her thinking, what is all this? How can I go to bed with that stuff in the way? Poor girl! She has to sleep in the other bedroom. Do you remember when you were little and Grandma and Grandpa came to visit, how you would get booted to the couch or your brother's room so they could have your bed? Yeah, well, that's how Sophie feels!

I gotta get some rest. Tomorrow is the first of the busier-than-I-want days, and I can't be behind schedule! I don't want to be scurrying around here on Friday saying, "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!"


  1. I am sure once she realizes being booted from her bed will result in being given delicious treats by the boot-ee she will be okay with it. Have fun and enjoy your visit w/ C&L !!!

  2. Ah, but I'm sure by now you're spoiling her with love and treats! Of course I do wonder if you might find a little (???) furry creature in bed beside you in the morning!

  3. Patti - I was short on the amount of dog treats that I had to bring, and I haven't made it to the store, so we are "making do." At lunch today she got 3 bites of my turkey sandwich, and tonight I slipped her 4 bites of pizza crust. I think she had forgiven my pushy self!!

    Sassy - Yep, as mentioned above, she is enjoying my guilt! And no, I wouldn't be too upset to find her on the bed as long as she doesn't kick and crowd me out!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
