This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Plain and Simple - Beautiful

I have to remember this when warm weather ( remember what that is ?) comes back .
I love the white flowers and the color of the glass.. simple and beautiful.

The Door to the Magical Place

The door to a magical place .. a place where people smile at you as they walk past, where people stop and chat , no one is in such a big hurry, dogs walk and stop and allow you to pet them , some people like to kiss certain dogs ... neighbors stop and chat , doormen stop their sweeping  and say hello as you go by.
To the right are parks and museums and magical things to do..
To the left are markets and parks and magical things to do ...
It is close to that time .. the time to go back to the magical place ..

Merlin

Merlin has settled in to his new life here ... he seems to have adjusted quite easily.
Minette might be having a harder time with it. She likes him and they often are found sleeping next to each other , at afternoon nap times but she still gets all huffy and stomps out of the room if I am seen holding him and talking love talk to him.
If I try to hold her after I have been holding him, she will struggle to get away and will leave the room.
She has a lot of attitude, my little Minette.
Merlin ... no attitude at all.
He is old and sweet and dear. 
He has bad eyesight, he might be a bit hard of hearing and he is missing a few teeth.
But he is no longer all boney and frail feeling and he has been seen playing like a kitten with a new toy someone bought just for him.
He enjoys nothing more than a good pillow and some sunshine for his naps.
And at night, he is there on my bed, waiting for me to settle down so he can get his beauty rest.
He never meows. He never hisses or acts unpleasant in any way.
He does purr .. very loudly. Very sweetly.
It was a Good Day when we found Merlin.
