Ponderings from a Procrastinating Prognosticator

I picked today as Tabitha’s birthday because she was apparently 10 and a half when she was rehomed to me on March 24, 2012. As a treat, she got tuna water (drained from tuna packed in water) and a few flecks of tuna.  She may also get some catnip if she decides to come out of the bedroom later. 🙂

Tabitha is a very loving cat, although she still doesn’t really like to be picked up and cuddled.  The longest she’s ever let me do that has been nine minutes – yes, I time them!  She does love to be near me, though, and if I don’t sit beside her for cuddles in the evening, she complains loudly and sometimes leads me into the bedroom early – which for me is a good thing!  She likes to come for a cuddle before I go to sleep but usually wakes me with a loud mwroar and jump off the bed, just as I’m dozing off. 😀

She seems to have adapted well to life in my home – even coming up to lean against me while I’m sitting in the chair a couple of times in the past few months.

Thanks to Denise G for trusting me with her and to Christine M for driving me to pick her up – and looking after her when I was out of town.

Autumn Colours

Posted by samatwitch on November 19, 2012

Burnt umber, polished gold, rusty brown stand out amid the variegated greens of the evergreen trees.  Here and there the brilliant red flames of a Japanese maple punctuate the fall colours.  We may not have the same variety or even vividness of eastern autumns, but the West Coast has its fair share of rioting colour, including late blooming roses of pure white, blushing pink and soft buttery yellow.

Leaves are reluctantly bidding farewell to the branches on which they have made their homes for the past few months, creating a thick carpet of gold on the patio outside my office window.   With the rain we’ve had in recent days, they are not as crisp as I like and don’t crinkle as much underfoot as I shush through them, but it’s a sight I look forward to once fall hits.

Living in the rain forest as we do, the predominant colour of any season is green, even during the winter, and the number of shades of that colour always amazes me.
