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...................

Monday Miscellaneous

The diet seems to be working. I can see "waistliness" on Lola and Sammy! Sam seems to be taking it pretty well, but Lola acts, at times, as if I'm starving her to death. Her problem is that she doesn't finish her food when it is available, then she gets hungry in between. I think her attention span is too short to finish a meal! She eats some then wanders around, muscling bites here and there from the others. Little snip! I have to stand in the middle of the pack to make sure everyone gets their own. I think, I hope, she is getting a little bit better about it. Nevertheless, the reduction of rations seems to be doing it's job. The change is minimal, but I can see it, so .... YAY!!

Yesterday afternoon, I decided that I needed to water my fledgling plants since it hadn't rained in several days. Well, technically it had rained several times, but never enough to wet the topsoil, just barely dampening it. The last three days it had clouded up, cooled off, but nothing significant had come of it, then out came the sun and the hear again. The good part of that is the pattern kept the temps from getting too high. So I put the soaker on the new plants, then set the sprinkler up for the postage stamp lawn in back. I got everything done, put the hoses away .... and a few hours later, early evening, it began raining! Wouldn't you know it? it rained very hard off and on till the wee hours of the morning. Now my lawn is absolutely soaked. I guess me watering my plants and lawn is the NM equivalent of washing the car. Whatever works! And look what I got out of the storms .... again!

OK, as of a few minutes ago, the survey came down from the top of the blog. I'm going to remove it to cut confusion, but here are the results. It looks like I will continue all three features, at least for now.

I guess I'd better get the Monday Movies up, eh?



  1. wow overwhelming voting results. I am glad your keeping the mm,tt,sf and yaaaay for the diet working could I send Buford and tiggs to you they need diet but I fall for their cute faces.

  2. Oh, Bobbie, sometimes I feel like the meanest mommy in the world! We'll get there, but not without some pain for each of us.


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!!!
