Strange Encounters of The Furry Kind


Last night, I was drinking a cup of this tea I found at the health food store, and I was lounging in the recliner. Jack jumped up on my lap and made his way to my chest, where he purred and rubbed his face on my face. I didn’t think much of it because Jack is lovable like that sometimes. But then Alice jumped up and was standing on my chest with her front feet, sniffing my breath and making a weird chirping sound. Then, Smokie (the blind one) jumps up and starts doing the same. I was thinking, “what the heck has gotten into you guys?”

Well, here are the ingredients of the tea: passion flower, chamomile, linden flower, CATNIP, hop strobile, spearmint, lemon verbena, lemon peel, and West Indian lemongrass.

That explains it. Big lol’s!


No Rain by Blind Melon


Yes, my life IS pretty plain, but it’s mine and no one else’s. I love the simple things in life. I love watching the rain fall, watching for rainbows, and waiting for the birds, rabbits and squirrels to come out and play. I love the blooms that Spring brings, the chirping sounds of nature, and the warmth of the sun. I love rock music, suspenseful movies, and spicy food.

I love to sit down with a good book and a cup of tea. It’s a great escape from the simple, sometimes boring life I live. I complain about things that don’t seem right and when things seem much more difficult than they should be. I don’t sleep all day but sometimes wish I could.

I sometimes have an odd point of view and many people don’t ‘get’ me but those who do are near and dear to my heart. They’re there for me when times are tough and they understand my tears. As long as I have the people in my life that I love, then I’ll have it made. Those who think I’m insane? Eh. Their problem, not mine. I’m ok with that.
