Boy its been one those of the busiest summers in a long time and that’s not counting the current book project I’m currently working on. That’s priority number one. People and even one new friend pulling you in all directions. Its sort of like juggling a bunch of balls and you have to make sure you don’t exactly drop one because they happen to be eggs.
Anyways yeah been more busier then normal and have virtually no time to really be on line not even to do the little things. Well I am trying to write this latest blog and post it that’s an exception but haven’t really been diving in to the internet, just scanning it quickly among other things.
Only made one batch of strawberry jam and the rest of the local strawberries I had to freeze for future jam making when I can. Going to have to buy a few baskets of local peaches this year if I want to make jam out of that since those darn squirrels took every last peach off of our tree this year. Greedy little things and yet they still go and eat all of the bird seeds I leave out for the wild birds. I’ll probably freeze some of those peaches as well so that when I get the time I can jam with those as well.
Also have some personal things I’m trying to get over with since my mom has been really bugging me to do so. Yet another gorilla to get off my back but it also feels like beating a dead horse too. The personal things, well I really want to keep that between me my self and I because its well a bit embarrassing and it at the same time causes me much anxiety. But it does have to do with a test and the giver of the tests. Me and tests have never been friends. They are my enemy that I would rather shoot and avoid like a plague. Sort of going to the dentist and or doctor or any annoying thing.
Speaking of the dentist, that’s yet another thing I have to get over with but since I have all these things I had to postpone it. Not like I’m disappointed though. My teeth are in pretty good shape any how other then the cracked teeth I have as a result of eating extra hard roasted chestnuts I ate at one time. Haven’t had a cavity in years. Knock on wood.
My birds have been busy as usual and they ended up sneaking in a pair of fertile eggs under my radar. I didn’t catch them right away because of my business and anxiety over coming events. But because I found out too late I let them go. Now I have two healthy roly-poly babies so far. I just hope they don’t end up with splayed legs. That’s when the legs go all funny and they can’t walk like they should. Not fun for any one.
Last but not least I gained an new friend of the furry kind which is pretty unusual in its self. I thought I never see the day unless I got my own place. Yeah I still live with my parents and my dad has this quirky thing about him which make him hard to get him sometimes. But none the less he gave in I guess. The Meowy wheel gets the cat nip. LOL
Any how a few weeks ago well it was the last week of June on a Friday night my mom heard a noise outside. So I went outside to confirm it and find out what it was. It turned out to be a really loud kitten crying. It was apparently coming from across one of our neighbors yard and in the direction of the alleyway. I could have sworn that little kitty was caring a blow horn/mega phone or something cause that’s how loud the mew was. But boy does she have a strong voice box. So I called the little kitty and out she popped out from under some bushes. So yeah I get her and she’s all covered with leaves, burrs and some dirt. So we tried to take her in but she meowed all night in the house so at some point I had to place her back out side. We also had to explain with the neighbors but they seem to be understanding about all the noise. Luckily she still hung around and now we still have her.
So we brought her back in and then she finally quieted down. She still mewing loudly even when I gave her some food I had lying around. LOL It was the funniest thing and at the same time the most pitiful thing you herd.
I kepped an eye out for lost ads at the store and what not but didn’t see any. So since my dad gave in, we as in mom and I got to keep her or is that a he. I still can’t decide since its still sort of hard to know for sure. One the genital aria is small since she still a kitten and also she’s a long hair. So for now she’s a she unless I find out otherwise. She has long hair as I said and has both stripes, spots and is white and orange. On her back legs it looks like she wearing orange striped leg warmers which makes perfect since she’s a real jumper when she plays and looks like she’s dancing. As for her name she’s called Meetsa. Not exactly spelt that way but for your benefit spelt like that on purpose. To me she looks like a butter scotch sundae so I probably would have called her with that relation or many other names I have in my mind but this time it was my moms turn. In my parents language Meetsa is a common name meaning Kitty. So if Meetsa ends up being a male all I have to do is change it to Meetso. No problem. Now I don’t know the exact history of little Meetsa, but to me someone had to have abandoned her. Their lose.
She’s a great and really smart kitty. Sometimes intelligence can get Meetsa in to trouble so I always have to ware her out with playing with her so I had to change my whole schedule just for her. LOL But she is totally worth it. Oh and she follows me around all over the place like a little puppy dog. Makes it easer to keep her where I want her for her safety. Also she loves to go below my butt when I squat, like a chick to a mother hen. I'm not sure why she/he does that but its so cute. Anyways here’s a few pics of her in all her or his beauty. I love to get a few pics where she has her mouth open or in some funny antic.
The following are pics taken in the first week we got Meetsa before the dreaded bath.
These were taken a few weeks ago while Meetsa was in her favorite spot for bird watching.
I think the last one makes her look like a sphinx statue don't you think?
