Life is Good
The warm weather enticed Grace outside to help me wash the winter grime off the windows and to clip back the butterfly bush yesterday. She doesn't go outside alone much anymore--she is getting older and she's feeling vulnerable outside these days. With a bit of coaxing, I can convince my girlie that it's safe with me out in the yard, so out she came to keep me company.
As I lifted the old Christmas tree branches off the perennial garden, I noticed the catnip plant was making a comeback. Grace loves nothing better than to eat a few leaves of catnip, so I called her over. To heck with nibbling one or two leaves, girlfriend stuck her whole face into the new shoots sprouting up. My little friend was in hog heaven.
I'm taking a clue from Grace and gonna just enjoy life for the next couple of days. I suggest you join us--not actually with us because that would just be mayhem. I mean, just go find your own personal stash of catnip and jump right in. Stick your face smack-dab into happy. Roll in the good of your life. Take some time to just enjoy. Close your eyes and wallow in what is your personal heaven.
And then we'll all meet back on Monday with smiley faces and good stories to tell.
