Brightness wherever.

I have resigned myself.
No matter how much I want to be productive, I am just not going to be for a while.
So I've decided to just put my sites on 2013.
By January, maybe I will be feeling well enough to actually get something done.
But for now, I must work on letting it go.

While at the studio this morning, O came to visit.  Now that would make anyone feel better, no matter what the problem.
She first heads for the animal crackers.
Then she has to connect with Sydney Sue.
And she says hello from a distance to Miss Puss.

Then it's upstairs to the kiddie table and dishes.  I think she would stay and play with these as long as she could.

She arrives in a stroller, which is left parked right outside the door.
Just sayin.

'Enough' thought it looked like a good place to catch a nap.

It's amazing to me how settled in these two boys are.
This is definitely their home.

This is the box that L and her sister dragged down from the loft.  It's going to be a winter house for Enough and Next.  A condo.  With heated beds.
And windows.
L doesn't like cats.  Just in case you didn't know.

O says: "What??? I don't believe that."

Hilary I hope you feel are too nice, and good not to. I haven't been writing on my blog either..I needed a break for the many "not so good goings on in my life" right now. Unlike you (and a few others) I didn't take the time to tell anyone. I guess I just went under a rock. And for that I am sorry..every month I say I am starting it again..and don' it what you will blog writers block-depression-whatever....I miss my horse...I guess I miss my old life..yet I know the new one that "seems" to be coming, is going to be better...I just know it...

I hope you are back soon...

I think that face and those cats would make it easier to slow down and enjoy the easy moments. A condo? Those poor cats:-)

Deb said...

Oh, there's O. It's always a treat to see that sweet little girl. She just makes me laugh without trying. Your friend, L, is going to be loved by those two fellas on the porch. I hope she's up to it. Get better soon, Hilary. Deb

I'm sort of iffy about cats too.. Sorry, O. Please don't hate me. LOL

Oh that "O" her face! We have a kitty apt. for our barn kitty, Mieux...complete with hay bale walls and a chicken heat lamp. She loves it! Did I tell you 18 epi for those blankets? Could have been 20 easily but I'm lazy sometimes!

Lovely photos ! It will take time to heal but just try to take one day at a time and take in all that would be missed otherwise ! Have a good day !

Karen said...

O's curls are just so beautiful.

LOVE the catcondo!!... Looking forward to the finished renovation :-)

It's so good to hear you sounding so much yourself, Hilary. I guess you sound more yourself than you feel yourself! That O is a beauty--her hair looks strawberry blonde to me. And the prospective cat condo looks promising. Being a cat lover, it warms my heart to think of them in a cat condo with heating pads. Take care, Hilary. Be good to yourself, and be patient. You matter whether you are getting things done or not!


Sharon said...

O must be your granddaughter because she sure looks like you!!

claudia said...

I want to be a cat in your neighborhood!
You are sounding better and better. From here it looks good, I know it seems slow to you.
O. What can I say? That child is just beautiful!

ain't for city gals said...

2013 sounds like a good time frame to must give yourself time to heal. Might be a good time to see Maine for a bit...

DJan said...

There's more than a wee bit of Irish in O. Look at that face! And a kitty condo? I think it's wonderful. Heated beds to boot!

Miss O is a charming young lady. I noticed today that her hair is growing longer, love those curls. Like the box for the boys on the porch. Will you still have the glass enclosed "sauna" type box out on the porch for them to use? Hilary, you are doing so well - slow and steady wins the race (I know it is driving you nuts, but keep at it girl). hugs

Daryl said...

L is allowed to not like cats even tho i suspect she secretly does ... maybe not all cats but i bet your cats/the Crazy as a Loom cats are exceptions

MarthaVA said...

L may not "like cats," but she has a good heart - and I bet she loves YOUR cats! ;-)
That Enough, he knows how to get comfy!
And little O, well, nuff said above about her - TOO CUTE!
How is P.T. goin? I know life will never be the same, but it will still be YOUR life. Hang in there!

Country Girl said...

Oh my gosh, how adorable.
I have a friend who really doesn't like cats, either. They freak her out. But how nice of L to drag down that future condo.

Rita said...

I'm glad you are going to allow yourself to recover at a slow and natural pace. Fighting it is just frustrating and can make things worse sometimes. Relax. Enjoy this time you have to smell the roses. :) :)

Susan said...

I know on the days when I feel the lowest, all it takes is a beautiful smile (and giggle) from my grands and my day is filled with sunshine. O is just so sweet and those blue eyes are captivating. When 2010 was my worse year, I said, 2011 had to be better; looking forward helped. XOXO

Hilary said...

I understand that some folks don't care for cats but it sure is difficult for me to fathom. Sweet of L to help you out with your boys, regardless.

O... I just want to eat her up.

EVERYTHING you share is such a gift. There are so many heartwarming moments in your days. I love having the kitties back again and O, of course. Enough in the stroller is priceless. Love your trips, treks, outings. Love your family and friends. I treasure how you are enjoying your moments! What a fine example you are to us all.

Gayle said...

PS The kitty "bed and breakfast" is the BEST! Sweet L!!
