Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Is there something in the air?  Or is it in the water?  What is it with people these days?  So many senseless attacks, so many senseless murders.  And that's just in this country.  The story of the two toddlers, left alone in their apartment, who put their baby sibling in the oven and turned the oven on just absolutely floored me.  What is going on with humans?  Is there some kind of subliminal signal being broadcast over the airways?  I am not ordinarily a conspiracy theorist but something sure as hell is going on.  Or is it just that the news stations have to provide us with violence for ratings.  I don't watch U.S. news but I do read some stories on Facebook.  Once in a while I turn on BBC news to see some of what is going on in the world that the U.S. stations wouldn't broadcast.  Violence seems to be the new entertainment these days and it is distressing, to say the least.  It's as if Rome is falling again.  I'm glad I don't have to raise children and that I have lived the years I have.
Questions.....I'm told that Syrian men are fleeing so they can get work in another country so they can establish a place for their families to come to.  The question is...why aren't they fighting to keep their country instead?  And why aren't our law agencies doing a better job going after the arms dealers who are supplying the enemy (such as ISIS)?  And why does our government continue to give money to countries that want to destroy us?  Something's gotta give and I'm afraid it's going to be soon.
Am I a doomsayer?  Maybe, but I sure don't see things getting better soon without something being done to stop the madness.

The sun has been shining for the past few days which has improved my mood greatly.  Also my cat, Cleo, had the stitches removed and the cone which improved her mood greatly.  One of the side effects of her surgery is that she now sleeps snugged up next to me on the bed.  This will help keep me warm when it gets really cold out. 
Not much going on here.  The world is in turmoil and that's enough for me.  More than enough actually.  I'm glad I grew up when I did.  Enough said.
I will go about my life day to day and keep my fingers crossed that sanity once again reigns.
Y'all have a good day.  I'm going to count my blessings.  You do, too.

It's another gray day.  I'm beginning to think we've switched location with Seattle.  More rain to come and that does not do good for my state of mind.  I have diversion at the moment with family here but they will be going home this afternoon.
My kitty, Cleo, had to have some surgery.  She had a weird cyst growing out of the side of her face.  It was hard and conical in shape.  The vet has sent off a piece for biopsy.  She thinks it's benign but wants to be sure.  I'll pick kitty up after the family leaves.  That way it will be quiet when she gets home since my four-year old granddaughter is somewhat rambunctious.
I will be going to TN on Monday and hope the weather is better there although the forecast doesn't look like it.  At least I'll be with a friend and who knows what trouble we'll get into.
Y'all have a pleasant day.

It's another dreary day.  And that's just how I feel.  I don't like the time change and the weather has not made it any easier to adjust.  I don't think babies adjust well either.  Wish "they" would leave it the hell alone.  Or at least set it half-way and leave it alone.  You know, 30 minutes....in the middle and leave it there.  We are going to get up in the dark and go to bed in the dark anyway.  But right now I could use some sunshine.  People do suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD and I am one of them.  Why don't I move to Florida or the Caribbean?  I like the change of seasons and as long as the sun is prevalent I'm fine.  Give me days on end of rain and I'm not so fine.  And where I live we don't get hurricanes, once in a great while a tornado will pass close by, a very minor earthquake has been known to occur and an ice storm has taken out the power a couple of times.  These I can handle.  Days on end of drear not so much.  I hope to stay busy so I don't think about it.  What about you?  How do you handle days on end of rain?
