Weekend Coffee Share; End Of February

Can I get you a nice hot cup of coffee? I do have tea and I can serve either hot or cold! I do love ice coffee for a change of pace, but my favorite is a nice warm mug of coffee with my favorite sweet Italian creamer. I am doing pretty good, how are you doing? I am enjoying our Southern California weather and my heart goes out to all in the frigid cold. I pray for all in areas where they met some bitter cold that affected not only households but farms and ranches. I am hoping some warm weather is near so that the thawing can begin. As I sip my coffee, I ponder what the future holds which for me is feeling more and more comfortable as I am enjoying my new job. Less stress and normal working hours, every weekend off! I feel like I am in work heaven, and that is my work at the veterinary laboratory. I can honestly say it is definitely the best decision I have made in a long time. I am so happy I decided to leave my other job after 20 years of night shift and supervising my department. I worked very hard, and now am working just as hard but without being in charge. I am SMILING! πŸ˜€

I am not sure why I am being so introverted with my thoughts. I guess because when you lose something so near and dear, it makes you look at your life and your decisions and what is happening now and what will the future hold. So much retrospection, it comes and goes but when I want to write this is what comes to the forefront of my mind. I believe this is natural, so forgive me as I wonder around my head with these things. I will say that as I am trying to focus my thoughts I am very grateful to be here to share. I really enjoy blogging and sharing. I have some fun photos I wanted to share. They are all kinds of random things I enjoy.

His mommy and daddy say he can say “awww duu” for “all done” which is so darn cute. He also purposely puts his foot in that position in the high chair to be “stuck” and laughs about it as you can see in the photo! Haha, he is a cutie patutie and is just as cute and adorable as my grand daughter was at this age! AND those kitties are so cute. My daughter use to have one of the brothers but he was really hard to have in her apartment with her Guinea pigs. So he went to live with his brother at my sons house. So it’s funny she gave her brother, the brother to his cat! Haha, follow?

And to make things more complicated my son had three cats when he took in the brother which made four and they all didn’t get along. My kitty was very old and went to kitty heaven, so I took two of my sons kitty’s and they are sister’s which one of them didn’t get along with the others. Between all of us (in different houses) we have six cats! I am so happy my daughter has found a nice beautiful black kitty that is so happy in her apartment with her Guinea pigs. The Guinea pigs live in a cage most of the time, it was the hay that the brother kept eating which upset his stomach and made messes all over the place. Anyways, fun to reminisce on how who got where! And I love to share their photos.

I have another photo of Jane on Irish but his ears aren’t forward but Jane is smiling. Haha, Jane still looks fine and I’ll call this my action shot! I have a super cute and heartwarming story to share about Jane and Irish. She told me this last weekend that since my horse Zack passed away Irish does the most sweetest thing. You see, Chloe lives in the barn up near the cross ties area where we all tack up for a ride. As Jane gets on Irish and they start walking to either the arena or the trail, she rides with a lose rein and he chooses a path directly to Chloe’s barn stall. He checks on her every day! They nose each other as if he is saying “it’s okay now” and then he walks off to a ride with his owner. I’m incredibly touched and I actually witnessed him doing this and it touches my heart. Chloe is well known at the stables as I have ridden with so many at the barn. They are feeling, sentient beings. ❀ ❀ ❀

Thank you for joining me for coffee today. I so enjoyed sharing and even though I have shared random items they are all near and dear to my heart. I am hoping you all have a wonderful week of the last week of February! I can’t believe March is around the corner. I am going to work on my gardening and am going to try a little bit at a time. I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew, because I would like to have a successful garden! I would love a super huge lush garden with many veggies and beautiful flowers and shrubs. I want to learn how to garden correctly, and do it all by myself or with help from hubby. And I will just slowly build on my garden, that’s more my speed. Looking forward to Spring!

Happy Gregarious Grandma,

~Diana ❀

  6. The bloomin flowers are great mate. You wonder around your head all you like I love your beautiful funny retrospective thoughts. Its so great that your new job just worked out so grand for you. Family cats are so squishy cute.
    I love how kids play their brains are just amazing, the freedom to be absolutely nutty fun with no inhibitions. Who knew playing stuck foot could be so much fun. Love the selfie with ya buddy. Jane & Irish look like the best beautiful treasures of mates a cowgal & her pony could ask for. Have to love the sensitivity of our majestic equines I’m glad Chloe is managing as well, I’m sure kisses from Irish would be helping. Have a wonderful rest of the week & may your mind wonder with the hilarious fun of your treasure of a Grandson.

  7. Hi Diana, you had me at low stress. My job has also gotten to be fairly low stress, but for reasons that I may have to solve by asking for more stressful work. I’m not very keen on doing that any time soon. Then — I’m amazed that a cat and guinea pigs in any combination didn’t result in carnage within 24 hours and am more amazed that a cat was found who leaves them alive. Remarkable! Ha. I have wanted to keep quiet about our weather up here, an hour north of San Francisco. It’s been lovely for several days and at worst, we have gray but dry days. Thanks for the kind visit.


    1. Hi Gary, that’s good news your job is fairly low stress! It feels so good, I’m so much happier! And the guinea pigs live in a cage and my daughter supervises the kitty with them if they are out. They are pretty big guinea pigs and even though you would think it a problem, there are cats that will leave those piggies alone! I’m glad your weather has been good. We actually could use some rain. We are both lucky we didn’t get that super cold weather like Texas. Oh my, disastrous!! Have a great rest of your week! 🀠❀️
