Pool leap – missing my family and Tiny dancer

There’s something to be said about your child outgrowing you – I just don’t have the words.

But I’ll try.

I’m ‘house sitting’ right now and the first night had my son saying, “It’s too quiet”

Missing my presence.


Yeah. ¬†ūüė¶ He’s starting to ‘adult’ and it was only one day until he was used to the ‘quiet’.

I miss him so much right now and miss Butters and miss home.

I feel as if I’m amongst ghosts. ¬†Not the dead – but what used to happen in this home.

Breakfast, for both family and pets.

Upkeep of the two tiered home – and the outside garden.

My mum is the epitome of a ‘stay at home mum’ with no equal. ¬†She keeps things going. ¬†Not just the home, not just the animals, but the outdoors and all her amazing ideas. ¬† And I’m sitting here, writing, ¬†seeing much of her work dead.

I thought her garden was on auto water  timing.

THAT killed me when I finally saw her garden in daylight.

I want to soak everything “BRING IT BACK!!!!” Of course, that isn’t possible.

What have I learned.

Well … Other than the fact that I carry my sons heart …

Feral cat #1 has the most beautiful eyes.  DEEP green around the pupil and a lighter shade of green around that.


The photo doesn’t capture that – but, I’ve paid enough attention.

I paid THAT much attention.   I see beauty in what is around me.


My ‘bed’ lol. I can’t sleep in any bed here – I grabbed a quilt from the guest room – but the residents took it up.


Photo of the ONLY time Plucky wasn’t on my chest or in my nostrils. ¬†Not a cage – she was sitting under a stool.


Meesh. AKA: Sissy. ¬†And I know mum misses her and I know it’s reciprocated. ¬† THAT reunion, I’d love to be a fly on the wall for.


And РTiny.  Tiny Dancer

I had a moment with her

Also tonight, I spoke to my ex-fiancée and lept into a VERY cold pool. Then took the most amazing shower, ^_^ ?

So I’m clean, adventurous, feeling handy here … And minty fresh lol.
