Monday Mumbles

It's 7:30am. I've been up for 4 hours already.  I have nothing to do right now.  Maybe I'll take a nap.  Or maybe I'll fire up the tunes and do some housework; there's always housework to be done.

Life is going very well for me.  I'm happy, I'm content, I'm finally at peace with myself and my world. We have our struggles, yes, but so does the rest of the world. How wonderful it is to be able to say that - that we're just like the rest of the world...

The forecast is calling for some really nice weather today. If it happens, I want to get Glimmer out for a nice long, relaxing walk.  Hopefully, my body will cooperate with me about that; after all, it benefits, too, from the walks with the pup.

I'm hoping this will be the year I can finally get myself a bike.  I've wanted one for the past couple of years, but we weren't able to afford it. I want it so I can run Glimmer when I can't get her to the dog park, but I also want it for myself.  I really want this year to be one of massive improvements to my physical condition.

That's all the trivial stuff I have to share for now.  Have a great day.

Thursday Thumps

  • Current Weather: Mostly cloudy. 4C. Forecast: Mix of sun and cloud. High 16C

It's hard to believe we're nearly at the end of the last week of March. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in a new year. How quickly time flies, these days...

Glimmer went to the groomer yesterday. We had done the best job we could with her, but it was painfully obvious to anyone who saw her that we didn't do a very good job with the clippers. Now, she looks like the beautiful diva she really is. Violet, however, didn't recognize her, and she attacked her. I'd forgotten that cats use their eyes, first, to process information, not their noses, like dogs do.

Glimmer was amazing about the whole situation.  Instead of fighting back when Violet attacked her, she went into a totally calm state, laid herself down on the floor, and let Violet come to her.  Then, when Violet approached her, Glimmer held herself very still so the kitten could use her nose to pick up Glimmer's scent again. By the time their bedtime rolled around, the two were back on track, and it was safe to let them sleep together.

With the weather warming up, we're looking forward to getting Glimmer out to the dog park.  The walks around the block and all the play time she's been able to get are losing their effectiveness in terms of helping her drain out excess energy. She needs a good run and the dog park is the perfect place for her to let loose and wear herself out.

That's all for this posting. Here's hoping you have a great day.

As can be seen here, the issue with the Look and Feel Editor has been resolved.  Others who were having the same issue should be able to make changes on their blogs now, too.  Big thanks to the Support team for their quick response! 

Hope you have a great day today. See ya.
