4:30 a.m. Wakeups...
Too many cupboards in the kitchen.
Luna used to wake us up at 4:30 a.m. She hops on MY side of the bed sticks her face close to mine, and bounces her nose against mine several times... One hour before I needed to be awake for work. Now, between jobs, she has acclimated to waking us at 5:30 for a few days, at 6:45 one morning, at 7:30 yesterday... And today? I got up without a wake-up call. She's mellowed out to a good-kitty level.
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
