R.I.P. Pussycat

has passed on.
and was groundbreaking comedy at its very best.
It never failed to take away my sadness when I was feeling down.
Thank you for being a friend and
say hi to Sophia.
I'm sure there's a lot of laughter going on up there.

...and the cleanup begins. Thankfully house did not flood but backyard is a mess. Puddles of water everywhere and even in the bird cage where the parakeets are. It was bad! Sadly, 5 kids lost their lives when the car they were riding in lost control and plunged into a swollen ravine and perished. Only 2 have been found and the others are thought to have been swept away. Please pray for the families.

Slow Motion

Look out below

Drinking tea this Good Friday morn and so thankful to be off today. It's been a very stressful week at work and I so need a slow motion day like today to unwind. A chance of rain is expected later today of which I hope we do get some. Already temps are warming fast. Tuesday morn temps were in the upper 30's and currently we're at a balmy 72.

I feel like I'm coming down with a cold or something and been trying to fight it off but it's lingering. Taking time this early morn to relax, read a bit, maybe drum and then the afternoon will be to tidy up around the house. I think this eve, I will make some shrimp quesadillas with a salad and a glass of wine. Might watch a DVD. It's been so long since I've seen a good movie.

Yes, this Easter weekend looks to be low key and that's just what the doctor ordered.

Happy Monday and Happy Drumming! Only Monday that I might say that because it's a short week. Happy Drumming because I just got some new drumming cd's and I'm anxious to go home and try them out. In the meantime here's a photo of "a real dog" as my brother always says because mine doesn't chase after balls. He prefers to chase squirrels instead! ;-)
