Ah, they're a little young for that right now. And Missouri born kittens don't practice incest anyway! However, if they had been born Arkansas brother, and sister, I would be concerned RIGHT now!

Actually, the little female kitten ALREADY has a gas-passing problem. It can be pretty funky too! I'm thinking of calling her Fartsana, and calling the boy kitten Tarsana. He has to be pretty tough to live in the same little box with her. The names sound kind of fitting to me, but I will see what everyone else thinks. Use your sense of humor here, now folks!

Has anyone seen my fuse box? I have never needed to use it and I was all over this place last night, and it is not in the house. I wonder if it is outside somewhere, but that doesn't make sense to me.

I will check anyway.
Gee, Robyn. That's odd. Just the receptacles? Hummmm? Guess those older wiring systems were done like that. I'm sure between you and Carol you'll get 'er fixed!! Now....none of the Lucy and Ethel stuff. Be careful you two.

Quick aside.....my SO's surgery went well. Everything seems OK for now. Follow up on Tuesday. It was cancer, but hopefully we are on the positive side of this. We've known since last July.

How about Ariehell (rather than Ariel) for the little gal? Although Fartsana has a feminine sound to it as well.

Thanks for the kind words and prayers PG and Robyn. Your kindness is noted and appreciated.

Well, it's snowin' to beat the band (as my grandmother used to say) up here. Looks like an easy 6 inches by morning. Sigh.......I'm ready for summer!!

She could not wait. Just as impatient as a child on Christmas morning, she could not wait.......

Her alarm on her cellphone began to buzz at 5am sharp. She did not even care, knowing it would stop in about a minute or two.

This woman lay in her bed, somewhere inbetween awake and asleep, smiling. Happy. Drifting now, back to where she had come from, off to sleep. No sounds, only the fountain and pond in her neighbors yard. She listens, as it lulls her to sleep.

It sounds like rain. She loves the rain. More than the moon, she loves the rain. Her drift, now complete. Asleep, she is sound asleep. Thoughts enter her mind, dreams. Good ones.

She wakes again, now, this, is where she is inpatient. She cannot wait until those wooden stairs escort her to her front door. No, not today.

This woman is myself. I cannot wait. Hopping out of bed, still hearing the sound of the fountain, I wonder if it is rain. I go to my bedroom window, there are four of them, but usually only this one I peer out of.

No rain, just a bit of fog, laying well below the sky, but not on the ground. It is almost level with my second floor bedroom window now.

I look out, through the blinds and lead my eyes upwards in the sky, directly to the moon. This is what I could not wait for. I could not wait for the moon. I did not see it last night, or yesterday morning. Not the night before either, I don't think.

So, this morning, at about 6am, I just couldn't wait. For the fear that it would leave me before I got a chance to greet it, I glanced out my window. It is more than a sliver.

(here is the sunrise.. I am running out the door but will be abck to complete this.... I see a sunrise entering my writing now )

Down the stairs I go. No time to make coffee, but it will come. I am out the front door and down those stairs in no time flat, the moon calling out my name. Knowing it will soon leave the sky, leave from my view.

So there it is. I stand at the very end of my sidewalk, it goes down the very middle of my yard, and meets the sidewalk infront of my house.

I am standing there, and my senses are all starting to awaken. I hear all of the different birds around, in the trees. I hear windchimes singing their songs. I feel the wind blowing on my skin, I can hear the wind in the trees as well, one of my favorite sounds.

I see the moon, in all of its glory up there, getting ready to sleep for the day. Kissing me good bye. Just three stars are visible now. One right next to the moon, one so far to the right I have to turn to see it, and one to its left, not so far away.

I can taste the wind as I breathe. Can you taste the coldness of the wind as it breathes on your face? I can. Do you know there is a such thing as wind, even though someone says you cannot see it? I can, because I see it everywhere, I feel it.

I see it over in the trees as they sway, with the birds resting on the empty limbs, free from leaves just now, for the winter. The base of this tree stands firm, proud, as the the limbs dance in the wind, little birds chirping as they sit there, all the while.

Touch. I run my fingertips ever so slightly down my face, and I am real. I am awake and I am alive.
