Little orange and black Glory showed up yesterday
minus belly
oh dear, dear, dear,
I wonder how many dears she had and where
She came late this morning, after her sibling, and ate hastily
but finished every bit
We were going to Galena this weekend...but oh my who will feed her..them?
I guess I will ask my mom to come late on Saturday and early on Sunday
a lot to ask of her...but I will

It is Fall already and they have just been time cold weather comes
they will still be little...
I thought I was through with cat rescuing
three years in row I rescued mom cats and kittens
found homes for them.....
got the rascal cat, Handsome, to finally except his shelter and that I was friend not foe
how I still miss that guy and his garbage truck meow
I slow roasted a chicken yesterday and today I am making broth
out of the bones and vegetables left in the bin
smells good.....such a Fall thing to do...make soup
I am trying to go back on my low carb/high fat/moderate protein diet
but it works...and I need to control my blood sugar
but the boredom....but I guess I have made cooking and eating too much of a sacred act
I need to get back to my workouts and walking...though I hate walking
I would rather spend hours lifting weights than walk aimlessly
I have a heel spur acting up right now, so that may be coloring my thinking
Tonight we join the kids and the grandkids at The United Center
for a pre-season hockey game
GO HAWKS.....oh I how I love watching hockey games...who knew?
I did manage to write something for Thursday's writing group
but alas they did not like my opening...said I was telegraphing the murder
ohhhhhh.....that was the point...I wanted you to know that he had murdered his wife
and was now playing the suffering husband looking for his missing wife
Sometimes I think they read and stop to quickly...finish goes where you don't expect it to
But they were persistent...and they didn't understand what ley lines were
I suppose I may take that criticism add a bit of info in there for those readers
who are not aware of ley important element in this story
curses.....back to the keyboard
I may give them what they want...but they'll see
my way was better.....
...Now off to make the bed and wash the morning dishes and vacuum
pay the bills and avoid the writing as much as I can

The kitties still are coming around twice a day to be fed.

I will do my best to build them a feeding shelter
and a housing shelter
I wonder if they will use it? together?
they won't go near Handsome's shelter
oh well I will do my best.
Thanks to all you dear animal lovers, especially the cat lovers
for all your ideas and sympathy
Yesterday I spent the day with my two daughters and their babies
and of course, Finn
He cheats at chutes and ladders
but he cuddles good, especially if I scratch his back while watching
the Cat in the Hat
I'm back to my writing group
feels good to be doing something creative
My entire spring and summer was occupied with house stuff
finding new places to put things or getting rid of things...installing new floors and painting
I have too much husband is right...darn.
Fall is here and I am glad....went to Galena this past week
...more work there!  But boy when I hit that spot in the road where Illinois becomes
valleys and hills and magical blue
I went to meet a guy about a driveway......and a tree guy about planting more trees
maybe a Catalpa and a those
Everything went well except for my cable ,internet, and phone being out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was alone with my thoughts all evening and morning......a dangerous thing I tell you
I ate too much and spent more money in my mind on that old house then my husband could ever bare
but the cable guy came the next day....(.threatening to throw the darn equipment out the window
may have helped)
It was a quick trip to Galena..I had to return home.....meeting the gutter guy back there on Saturday
....and today I finally hung the drapes in the family room....which I would love to replace
but I dare not ....if I want to make it to year 44 of marriage and sorted through books and books and books...and loaded my car up with stuff for I guess I did get something done
Did I ever tell you about the swat team that was in front of my house this year
oh no?  I bring this up... it swirling through my mind trying to leap out an idea for the page.....
what with writing group tomorrow..and I don't want to work on anything I already have....but it doesn't work...I guess I'm stuck with the guy whose GPS leads him to dead end cornfield and a crop circle....sigh
And coming home last night from my daughter's
I spotted a squad car in front of me cutting its lights off as it turned left I wanted to follow it....but it was late and I had been driving for an hour already
and the kitties would be waiting morning glories...
so I took a pass
I guess I have rambled on too much...all in an attempt to get my writing juices flowing
but my keyboard is sticking horribly
so I'll just have mercy on you all and say Oh bother and  goodnight
