Proverbs 3:5-6 is my life verse. One of them.
I think I have all the ingredients to copy this!
So dang clever and purty too!
Where can I find this? I need it.
Have a good Thursday.

A few observations for your Monday morning.
Things are WAY past peak up here in The Mitten. We have now graduated to carpets of leaves on the ground, scraggly, leafed trees and some bare branches.
Of course, our Bradford Pears are just now turning color and still fully leafed. They are introverts and like to do their shedding alone. Always late to the autumnal party so to speak.
Autumnal is a strange word.
So is jurisprudence. I never use the word jurisprudence.
Artichoke is a weird one too.
I hesitate to enjoy something with the word choke in it.
I had a cat food incident this week.
As you know, we have three old lady cats. A mother and her two daughters. They are approximately 8 and 10. Or 10 and 12 years old. They is fluffy.
They have been eating Science Diet, regular chow for their entire life with us. I realized a couple years ago that the bag said for ages 1-6, and another bag said 7 and up. I wondered if that might be why they were so …fluffy? I switched them to a mature bag. It had a different shape. Halle Berry promptly licked the fur off her belly. Her entire belly. I switched them back.
This summer I noticed another option, something about age defying. They did fine with that. When I went to buy a new bag, that’s when my troubles began.
When paying at the cash register, The cashier said the price was about $20 more than I had ever paid. What? I said I had not paid that last time. She said they raise the prices sometimes. By $20? I said I was going to exchange the bag. I got another one for mature cats. Unfortunately, when I got home and inspected the bag closer, I realized it was the bag where the food was a different shape. The belly licking bag!!!!
I did not open it. I took it back the next day and exchanged it for another bag of a different old lady cat food, opened it and fed the Girls. There was food still in the bowl when it was time for the next feeding, this is an unheard of phenomenon at our house. It continued for a couple of days. No one loved this kind. Then the horking began. I’m sorry Spellcheck, you may not recognize horking, but anyone who has a cat knows what horking is. I took that bag back for a refund.
I again bought the age 1-6 kind, which I will now refer to as the fat and yummy, no horking kind.
My Aunt Phyllis and I are trying to convince my Uncle Bob to come to Florida when we are there. She did what she could do, I did what I could do. He recognized a well coordinated effort. She chatted on Words With Friends yesterday that she saw a chink in his armor, he said he was checking flights today. We will see!
We had Tasty Boy doughnuts this weekend. Oh. My. Goodness. Those doughnuts are sinful.
We watched home movies this weekend. They are worth their weight in PURE GOLD! Precious. Everybody take movies, right now.
Have a pleasant Monday.

A sleeping kitty is one of my favorite things! This week features Snoozing Sy.
I would have been B.O.T.H.E.R.I.N.G. him.
There has been some Hectic over here the last few days. Some good and some alarming.
The week started with Jip the Farm Dog in the hospital with blood clots in both lungs!!! I can assure you, no one saw that coming. The Lord, in His infinite mercy, protected her life from further harm and she is resting semi-comfortably at home with the aid of Percocet. She has learned, the hard way, that when in excruciating pain it is not wise to go off pain medication so you can drive and give the BSF lecture. Narcotics are a girls best friend when breathing hurts, forget the diamonds.
That was the alarming portion of the week, the good part was The Boy and The Dane came in on Wednesday! It’s always good to see them and hug their necks! He still has one more week of the Rituxin, but it is abundantly clear that it is not working at all. He had 4 doses of IVIG before he came to plump up his 11,000 platelet count. He brought with him a myriad of side effects, including major insomnia and a bad case of teenage skin. So that Christmas picture I was hoping for? Probably not going to happen, because that would be mean. The next time we see him at Thanksgiving he could be in the middle of The Brew, and you know what chemotherapy does to hair. I guess he could wear a hat? We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
We have been doing some eating and shopping, and sitting around visiting is what we seem to do best.
Have a good weekend. No Hectic. I’m serious.

Guess who turned 7 over the weekend?
This big old guy!
We went to dinner at Chip and Dip, and I am sorry to say someone had STOLEN the birthday sombrero! No fancy Mexican happy birthday song wearing the sombrero! A moment of silence for a historic loss.
We went back to Goomba’s house for cake and presents. I guess I don’t need to tell you that was his favorite part!
Goomba went on a fishing outing at his church over the summer, and he liked it! Honey, who is all over fishing, knew just what he wanted to give him, his own pole, with a sweet Spiderman tackle box! Ready to drown some worms Goomba?
There was more Nerf activity. I got a lesson in firing the double shooter.
His faincy Batman cake!!!\
His Grammy and Papa Turk were there to wish him well.
As Grandpa said, 7 is the year of completion, So I guess he is officially not Little Goomba any more. He is now Mid Size Goomba!!!
Cake and ice cream, we are all in!
Happy Birthday Friend!!

Hi Guys, I had a feeling October would be running past us and that is exactly what is happening.
Here is the grandcat. The Boy said he looks like Mr. Winky occasionally. I guess he pokes himself in the eye at some point and spends a couple days looking like this. Probably not hard for an active (spazzy) teen cat to do.
He’s a purty boy!
I have spent an inordinate amount of time this week trying to get myself ready for winter, clothing wise. I am aware I have many clothes in my closet, but for one reason or another they are not what I need,nor do they meet my ever changing requirements for comfort. It’s a problem People.
I wore a couple pair of jeans just this week that have worked in past years. After wearing them for a day I COULD NOT WAIT to get them off. Always a bad sign.
I feel I need to get the winter clothing squared away because autumn seems in a hurry this year. Does anyone else feel like that?
I spent some time trying on clothes I already own, putting together some outfits with a mixture of new purchases and already owned pieces, and making a list of things to look for. Mousey is helpful in this area. She knows it is my deepest desire NOT to resemble Hag Barbie.
A gal at BSF had on a cute pair of jeans on Wednesday. I asked her on Thursday if they had been jeggings, you know, pants with no zipper, with flat fronts. Because I prefer a flat front, I don’t like a zipper and big old button sticking out when I wear longer sweaters, like a giant outie bellybutton. Who wants that fashion people? WHO???
She said they were not jeggings on Wednesday, but she had jeggings on right then! She promptly pulled up her shirt and showed me! She then gave me the all important, need to know information of how to get some!! She said they were Vera Wang, purchased at Kohl’s, but you have to wait until they are 40% off and you have an additional coo-pin! She was speaking my love language!!!
Since I needed to go to Kohl’s to return a big bag’O’stuff anyway, I had a little look see. Sure enough, they were 40% off, and I also had a 20% off coo-pin in my purse! Spent about $20, originally $42. Thank you Mary Zulker! I think they could be my new favorites. I bought black denim and midnight blue. Big sigh of comfort!
They also had flat front flares or boot cut, can’t remember, just FYI.
In other news, I returned both pair of boots. I am still sad about it and hoping I do not live to regret the decision. I am still holding out hope of finding a more caramel color of comfy boots. I am still aware that I am a giant pain in the rumpus. #firstworldproblems.
All total? Returns at 5 stores. Much rejected clothing and also included was the cuddler cat bed that no one loved, and some random rugs that I was thrilled to find the receipt for! It’s a good feeling to get all that OUT OF MY HOUSE!
Honey and I also accomplished much outside work! It’s a good thing.
As you can see, my week has been full and hectic.
Have a full and non hectic weekend!
