So—-What Did We Do on Friday? —- Sunday, February 5, 2023

We split a huge pile of logs for the fireplace.

It was a good feeling that splitting was ALL we had to do!

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Two is a Marvelous Age, Friday 3, 2023

If I were a human

I would be 24 years of age

I would dress the part (which I do)

I would have a fast car (I have fast paws)

And I be out of college (or on to grad school)

I would have the world by the tail.

Well, I am a cat

I dress the part of a very handsome fellow each and every day of my kitty life

I have fast paws—VERY FAST

I can climb any tree and walk any fence—I am a cool cat

I even trip up Boo Berry as she walks by and

tumble her like a leaf.

She jumps up and gives me a hurt look, but I laugh and run off

I am TLC Cai-Cai—the Kitty of the FARM!!

WE DID IT!!!!—-Thursday, February 2, 2023


On October 2, 2022, Jason brought in a semi-load of firewood.

Enough firewood for Shannon, Terry, and I, and Cliff and Kimberly.

We kept working on it for four months.

Two to three pickup loads a day

It was a long, gradual process

Bruce came out and helped one full day—sure was a lovely gift.


Terry cut. I loaded. Then we unloaded.  Some with us, some with Shannon.

With Cliff and Kimberly, we hauled their amount to their house—which helped shrink the pile


Last load to the house!


Now the only thing left is the splitting of the wood.

To My Sister By Choice — Happy Day of Earthly Birthday, Wednesday, February 1, 2023

I miss you, My Dixie, my sister of choice.   We have been together since the day we were born.

I first, then in two weeks your birth

A part of me is there with you, wherever you are now.  Just like we were in our earthly life.

But—- sometimes—sometimes I feel you with me.

There in the rush of the wind through the leaves

A faint smell of Iris in the air

Sometimes I hear you laugh, giggle, sounds of joy so pure and delighted I want to reach out and take your hand—once more.


You were Springtime and Autumn–rolled all into one— all the best of feelings

All dolled up into a cute package of laughter and determination.

You are a precious soul!

Love you, Dixie, always,

From my heart to your world



My Wants are Very Simple —- Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Standing outside watching the Canada Geese flying and calling over-head

Adds radiance to my day.

A forever Thank you in my heart!

You have to be


Because we have


That lives around here.
