calling springtime,,,,,,,,,

I had a make over like this once , it may be the reason I dont wear any makeup, well lipstick but that doesnt count ,it is for dry lips (wink*).I think this cat s fur is dyed I am not sure if I think it is cute and a little sad or just funny . As long as the cat is ok ,I am OK!
This is cute , wish I felt like this more LOL but for some reason I feel more like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

As I type ,I look outside and it is lightly snowing ,no wind ,really pretty just slick enough to make the cars going up my street sputter and skid . The whirring of tires on ice and snow is a constant ,so much so that we barely notice it unless it is really bad and only then in case someone may need a push or help out of a snowbank .The road I live on has a long steady incline ,not eccessively steep but enough . The city in which I live is very hilly and right now it feels like a bowl of snow ;0)
OHH I am desperately awaiting springtime , flower buds ,long afternoons , fresh air that doesnt make your body shiver ,sunshine after five ,birds chirping sweetly.
It is humourous , we are like bears (HI BOO BOO) coming out of hibernation when spring finally blooms ,I see neighbours out that I havent in months and there seems to be so much more movement around the city,people are smiling and things just feel so much better after the ice age ! BUT for me right now ,I will just have to wait , and try to enjoy life as it is for we dont know what will come next , and I try to feel like spring inside my heart everyday ,,,,,,,,,in the words of the little redtrain ,,,,,"I think I can, I think I can "

sad sad sad

I have been at two funerals/wakes this past week and a half , I am spent beyond!
I find them hard even if I do not know the person , , harder in this case , One was a very close friends Father , and some are doozies where grief is explosive , this was one of them . I have never seen so many people at a wake before ,good for the family . I guess when it is sudden like this one was some say it is harder , I believe each situation is equal to the next , if you love someone , it isn't easy letting go in any manner . The saddest Is seeing people who outlive their family and friends and have no one to mourn for them , no flowers , no tears , That is such a shame .I was so moved in a case like this once that I went into a complete strangers wake next to the room I was viewing and said a prayer for the soul of the lonely soul before me ,I don't think she minded , I had a private conversation around 2minutes and then made my way back to where I was before without anyone knowing I was gone .
The whole situation is sad but is part of our world , God Bless all the lonely souls that leave this earth alone and help those who need it , a relief from their grief .
God Bless

Weather creates the mood doesn't it ?
This above pic is the window over my kitchen sink , it is large and sunny most days ,the patio outside is level with the kitchen floor inside , this was my morning view .

I thought a great deal of snow had fallen a few days ago and popped my head out yesterday like the Groundhog did the other day and snapped this pic above , not to bad !!!!
This is the same shot taken a day later , early this morning and it has snowed all day since then .

This is the door I popped my head out of take the pic , fresh , clean, new waist high snow awaited , SNOWCREAM anyone !!! ( Diane J. There's no way you would run out of snow here LOL) The pics are darkish as it is early morn which as I said above ,usually very bright but today was still a little stormy and almost all the windows were like this blocking almost all light which tried to get in . It was like this all day , the lights had to be on in normally nautral bright rooms , I feel like I am in a tomb .

These two below are later after noon , much the same , looks are deceiving , the Snow around the tree and area is about 5 or so feet deep , all ready to jump in or for a snow fort (Alex wink*), I think I will pass but your all welcome to it LOL.....shovelling the driveway is around 10 feet high , I cannot throw that high and your not allowed to put it in the street,SIGHHHHHHHHH , I should have bought that snow blower ,but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I wonder how long I can last in here , I have heat ,food , water , power , the net ,,,,,,,Hmmmmmm sounds good to me .
Hope you are somewhere warm and having fun and beating the Feb. BLAHHHHH's !
God Bless

I thought that this was so cute , it kinda looks like on of my kitties , my brother sent it to me via email , he lives on the other side of the province about an 8 hr or so drive away in summer. I miss him terribly , I have two brothers both of which are older than I am ,one I grew up with ,one not so much ...... I am close to both ,love them equally but have different memories with both .

R who lives on the other side of the province was 5th degree Black Belt Tae kwon do instructor and is now recovering from a car accident , in a heart beat someone can change your life ,it sure did his . This accident happened a few years ago and things haven't been pretty , but he is alive that is the most important thing and I thank GOD everyday as he almost took him from us ,that would have been unbearable.

The snow falling tonight mixed with his email brings back memories of us as children , tobogganing/sledding and climbing endless mountains of snow for 20 seconds of sheer delight just to climb again and loving every toe numbing minute of it . He taught me to skate both ice and roller blade , both of which I haven't done in years sad to say ... He also pulverized me with snowballs and mobbed me after school but let no one else use me as a target LOL

It is funny how certain things bring back memories , just with a flicker of light or a scent , things deep in our minds surface ,to bring emotion back with it . Tonight it is all good ones , even the snowball fights I lost , or the taste of the snow as it found its way as I was being pounced on for fun . They all make me smile ,,,,,,,well most anyway HAHAHAHAHAH

whats one of your fav memories ??? Hope you share ,,love to read them all.

Hope your day is bright and you make wonderful memories.
