a song for you...

This song keeps haunting me...It's sweet and sad and beautiful, and sung by my favorite,
James Taylor. I'll share it with you.......

Hannah Pearl

 The day before Gipetto passed, i went to my local Petsmart to see a kitten i had viewed online. My local animal shelter, the Mohawk and Hudson River  Humane Society, has a special room set up there to adopt out cats and kittens from the shelter. This way, people who are not inclined to go to the shelter, can still see the beautiful cats that are available for adoption. I often look at the animals for adoption online, and when i saw this kitten's picture, i knew she belonged with me(the same thing happened when i saw Rosie's picture, from the same shelter location) Her original name was LoriAnn. She and her sister were thrown in a box and abandoned in the Shelter parking lot. They were thin, and had diarrhea. LoriAnn has a wandering eye....

 So the good people of the shelter took these little ones in and got them ready for their new homes. I went to meet LoriAnn on Saturday, and brought her home. I knew she was mine. And i knew her real name was Hannah. But after i got her home, she purred and purred, but her purr sounded like a "purrlll"...So, her full name is Hannah Pearl. Her big kitten sisters are not so sure she was a good idea but they will come around. The dogs are fascinated with her! Life is funny. One life moves on and one moves in...I hope we have a very long friendship....

(i included this picture because i thought it was interesting. Hannah had a hard time sitting still for the pictures so i started doing Reiki on her, and this is what the webcam picked up)

Another Goodbye

 Just 12 days after we celebrated a huge milestone...Gipetto's 20th Birthday

 Geeps let me know that today he was ready to leave his old tired body behind

 It seems like just yesterday this picture was taken, when Gipetto, and his brothers Zebedee and Amos Moses were just puppies, and i was much younger. 20 years is a long time, and Gipetto had to say goodbye to each of his brothers who were also his best friends. Today i told him all about what it would be like to be free of his old body. He could run again and see again, maybe even fly. And he could see his brothers again too. And someday, i would join him when it was my time to leave this old body too.
Run with your brothers my good old friend. I will see you again...

Something new for Safou

I usually take my garden clogs off at the back door and leave them in the hall for the next time i need to slip them on. But the other day i took them off inside the kitchen door, and  left them there. I was sitting at the table and noticed that Safou had arranged them in the front of the cabinet by the door. He likes to find little nooks and crannies to hole up in and make a little nesting area.(Behind the toilet in the small bathroom is his other favorite place to hang out. He likes to scare the stuffins out of anyone who doesn't know he is in there and wants to use the facilities. ;) Anyway, i noticed him doing a little "ritual" over and over again and was able to catch it with my camera. Lucy noticed too.(See how she doesn't trust that beak near her tail???) ...Now if i can only get him recorded while he is singing and talking a blue streak...

A special gift...

 I got up early this morning to let the dogs out, and came back to my bed and found a little present near my pillow. Lucy brought her favorite (well worn) mouse toy and left it for me on my bed 
(that's her in the corner of the picture above)
It may not look like much, but this was a very special gift....

Amma making Masala Dosa

Amma will be coming to Boston in mid July. I do not think i will be able to travel and stand in the crowds once again this year. (Last year i had poison ivy poisoning...sigh) In order to get there in decent time i get up around 4am, have 3 1/2 hours of driving( i am always the driver, and i am not allowed to drive as of yet) take a ticket and wait my turn. It is usually an all day event. Very crowded and very noisy. I'm just not strong enough for that yet, even tho i know it would do me a world of good to see Amma and receive her healing hug.... I found this little video and watched it a few times. I love watching her do every day things. It gives you an idea of the crowds that gather around Amma.

Flower Essence~ Rosa Rugosa

It seems like forever and a day since i have felt strong enough, and the sun has been out long enough to make flower essences. But Monday morning i woke up to sunny skies and a gorgeous rose bush calling to me. Time to get to work!

Many years ago i took a slip of this wild growing rosa rugosa bush home with me from around the cabin we used to stay at in Cape Cod. Now it's HUGE...

Looks like i wasn't the only one who had their attention called to the roses in my garden. This little guy was rolling around in the flowers and having a grand old time...

I asked what flowers were ready to offer their services and caught them in a bowl for the process

i almost always include some clear quartz crystals and a piece of rose quartz in the essence bowl, just because i love it so much...

i let the bowl sit in the sun for about 5 hours and when i decanted the essence, the water smelled and tasted strongly just like the flowers. I drank down every bit of the lovely water that didn't fit in the essence jar. It was like a Love Potion...
