Peace, Poetry, Selfies and Other Stuff!

 Yup, its been a busy week here. But that is OK, it keeps all of us out of mischief and monkey business to be busy!

Firstly November 4, was World Peace Day, so we made a ‘peace globe’ for Mimi Lennox’s yearly blog for peace. Sorry we are late with it, Mimi…

Petcretary got her booster shot for Covid, the third one…she is ancient so she was eligible and also due to the nature of her work in a care facility, that further qualified her to get that third dose. But…OUCH! Her arm has an angry red area on it, and it is sore to the max. In bed its hard for her to find a comfy way to have her arm…hopefully that will not last, its been since Wednesday evening…

She tries to ignore it and do her normal work and chores around here…but the biggest chore was hard, she raked up all the leaves and walnuts…there were 16 piles to transfer into the yard cart and bring to the back wood pile…if you thought the pics you saw last week were huge, right now its like a small mountain!

We got a couple of estimates to get rid of the offending tree…yikes, that is expensive!! But likely cheaper and easier than having to repair the house if that tree decided to fall on it.

Petcretary was not a ‘firstie’ at Teddy’s Teaser Tuesday this week, but she was the First Right Guesser!!

This is Goreme Town in Cappadocia, Turkey. A Biblical city and very ancient indeed. Apostle Paul went there on one of his missionary journeys. There are lots of caves that used to server as dwellings for peeps trying to hide from their enemies.
Oh me, oh my, how lucky am I! I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser post of 11-2-2021 !!!

 On Thursday at Teddy’s blog once again, it was poetry day, we had to provide our own picture and use that for the poetry inspiration.

So here is a poem to go with Winnie The Poo’s Blustery Day image…petcretary composed this originally when she was still a schoolgirl, so she revised it a wee bit…funny how maturity of years can make you want to adjust things, due to a need to make it ‘work better’.

The Blustery Day

I hear the wind howl,
Stripping off the leaves;
I feel the wind blowing,
Even into my sleeves!

I see the clouds flow,
And they dance along.
The wind makes them fly,
As it screeches its song.

I see the trees bend,
Fighting ‘gainst the gale.
I feel the wind push,
Determined to assail.

I feel the wind’s bite,
It chills me right through.
I hope this storm stops.
So that calm can renew!

I hear the wind sigh more softly
No more does it roar…
Gone all the roughness,’
All is peaceful once more.

IR 11/4/2021

Don’t forget to turn the clocks back! We are going to be back on Standard Time for a few months now…till March!

                                                                                            ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Can we all purr, have paws together for pawyers and send lots of POTP to Beau, he has major issues with his mobility…

Beau’s Bad News

And SheriEllen who is  BellaDharma’s Mom…aka BellaSita…really needs our prayers at this time.

POTP for BellaSita/LadyMew

We sadly also had to say goodby to another precious kitty a few days ago…Mr Jinx of ManxMNews 

Mr Jinx

 Sadly,  Sasha from Kitty Korner, also became an Angel Kitty. We ourselves did not know him so we are posting a memorial image from the POTP Blog…

Sasha

So now its time for our selfie! Phew that was a long post!!

We cropped the original, and then we cut ourselves out for the peace image at the beginning of this post…and here below as well.
We’ve joined with the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop! Thanks Kitties Blue for being the fine hosts!
