Wordless Tuesday... Kind Of.

The recipe for healing may or may not include the following items.

1. First, gather your friends together for a Friday afternoon meeting.


2. Share with them the violet story, and the violet that is still blooming. (Oh, and the brown needlepoint pillow? My mother's work, as well.)

3. Visit the nearby Goodwill, where you will stumble upon treasures that will light up your new digs.
4. Add some outdoor creatures that have decided to keep you company on cold winter mornings and quiet afternoons. (Aren't they a lovely couple?)

5. Add some enticing contraptions that may or may not catch 9 mice. (Watch your fingers, and please ignore the band-aids on mine. p.s.)

6. Surprises in the mail from great friends will keep your spirits high. (The people at Starbucks have surely been wondering what happened to me.)


And the most important component in this recipe?? Cuddly companionship.

I hope you are doing well...your little companion will be master mouser soon! So cute.

feefioto said...

Who is that cuddly companion? Does he or she have a name?

Joanie said...

When the kitty gets big enough, you won't need the mousetraps.

From what I can see by the pictures, your house looks lovely! Is it a cottage?

Pledge Fabric Sweepers are great for getting cat hair off furniture. p.s.

Joanie said...

Why, Ms. Vodka! I do believe you have been spammed by someone who can't get a date!

Lucia said...

Yeah really! lol...spam is awful and fattening.

That Janie Girl said...

Ooooh! I wanna see the new house!

Love ya, girlie.

Love what you've done. It's looking very homey now. And those birds watching over you are a good sign :)

Awww, he's a cutie. Must be nice to come home to even though he doesn't actually want to help you kill the mice.

Oh, the cute kitty is a nice touch! And who needs Starbux when you can have a companion like that?

Sue said...

I've been thinking of you and how full your life must be right now. I think that little kitty is exactly what you need right now.

Take care my friend,
Sue

This is a home that is warm and inviting. Love that the violet is still going strong. Did you ever name your darling boy?

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Sigh ... I miss you. Your new place looks cute and homey. I'd like to move in with you and drink vodka for hours while we chat. That's not a problem, is it?

Gigi said...

Sounds like a great recipe. Glad to hear that you are doing okay.

Sandee said...

You'll shed many tears, but you will eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel. You'll know it too and there will be a very large smile on your face. Embrace it all. It's essential!

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

It is all perfect ... except for the mousetrap.

We have a grown up companion just like yours. He's great fun!

Chef E said...

I am missing the last component!

beth said...

What a delightful treat to see the cardinals outside the window! Everyone should have a splash of excitement in the otherwise drab world....

J.J. in L.A. said...

Aww, I love this post! Especially the last picture. Too stinkin' cute! Have you chosen a name? Is it a girl or a boy?

And I love the way you decorated your house!

Trooper Thorn said...

What about socks and underwear fresh from the dryer?

Pastor Sharon said...

Munchie is about the cutest little guy I have ever seen! Does he know how to walk? Just curious!

I don't think I would ever put him down!

Your home. . . it is yours you know, looks very cozy.

I'm gonna bring a bottle of Reisling over and we will sit a spell and talk about whatever, while I spoil the fuzzy boy, Munchie!

That okay?

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh, and thanks for the link! I didn't see that, at first.

You are so deeply connected to our hearts! We love you at this house!

Anna See said...

your new place looks charming! minus the mice, of course! xo

Missy said...

I know you're dealing with some challenges right now, but seriously? I'm jealous of how well you seem to be settling in. The critters in the trees & friends with wine are awesome.

Recipes like this are best during the winter.

I can be there around 6, if that's good for you.

Sodermoto said...

I am not a cat person, but that seriously is the cutest kitten ever! What a great way to help you feel better. (and a screaming deal at Goodwill would make me feel better any day of the week!)
:) Love your blog and all your tales from your class.
