Lazer beams...Sssinge-ing my heart and soul....... that the gist of it?
.....Yes, i think it's quite right ....
Yes i think these qualify for Lazer beams of some furrosity!
Probly 'cause i can't spell rite naow! huh?
Mee..aowch ??? Owe !
These kitty eyes really burn a whole BIG hole into the very soles of my soulless shoes and heart! oooh..not good.

Funny thing about this picture but i could swear it's exactly what i see when i look into the mirror!

This is a good picture of how i feel about myself this week... this moment in time.
A blog i follow: Tabitha Birds "Through My Eyes" had talked recently about finding our "inner cat"....(i love Tabithas Blog!)
i made a silly comment about my B.B. being Tigger and me being Eeyore as of late... but this photo of our dear sweet MiLd mannered little Angel kitty, our Slippersdoodles .... Really serves as my reflexion at this moment.
i have been This, this week. ALL this week!

my Tigger 'Hub-Bee' has done all he can to retain the bounce in his effervescently springy bouncy self... and this is what he see's when he looks at me...
........our dear little girl here reserves this glare for din-din not forthcoming from the "sharing table" time... Megga beggar this little one!

And what's mY problem??? ...............i think the Grinch may have come early....

i'll share more about my Attitude and need for an adjustment soon... but suffice it to say....
Grinch Happens???

Pray for Tigger  ... he's got a chance at a new job in ministry coming up... & wifeypoo needs to take a nice pill...or something. :[
Perhaps lazer surgery on her heart? a mind transplant? i need to think warm & fuzzy... sweet little kitty... nice soft, purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....

Would SOMEONE please turn down the lights??

Our Chard garden

Since coming here to the desert i had one major goal in mind... other than recuperation from life's stormy gales:
To Grow a salad garden... YEAH!

One would think things would grow well with the endless sunshine we have here in the desert... and since we are along the Colorado river and there is a large agricultural community along the banks, i sort of hoped growing veggies would be a done deal.

 Too soon i came to understand that this desert sun can be a 'bit' intense for tender seedlings and though we did get a small crop of heat resistant tomato's the Sun soon beat down my hopes for anything more abundant....
....At least at the time.
The supposedly heat tolerant lettuce i grew was scraggly from the get go but we did have some with sandwiches... we made the best of it......The Chard only reached about 1 inch tall but after weathering the heat... IT and a tiny lettuce are still alive after six months and getting some color even! How Funny is this?
But we are elated!
...... kind of like Eeyore when he received the empty 'hunny jar' and popped balloon from his friends on his birthday... Anyone remember that story? i've always appreciated how much those mangled gifts meant to that sad little guy... that's the way i felt about our 1st desert experiment... they may not have reached their full potential but boy what fun it was just playing with the dirt, picking out plants, watering, sitting in the sun and watching something peek out from the soil.

Though the sun my have Charred our hopes earlier in the year.... we didn't give up ...
 No! ...can't do that!
Sweetie B. built us a Better planter... We waited for the weather to cool ...planted a new crop on October 11th... we have had to cover it already as the temps have been low ... but...
The sun has not Charred our Chard this time!
