I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

Why I haven't been blogging

I have this pesky little critter that sits on my monitor and refuses to let me see the screen. Every time I sit down at my computer, she jumps up on the desk and seems determined to get in my way. I don't know how she figured out if I am working on the computer, she isn't getting any attention.

I didn't really want a long haired cat. We've had many cats in our 47 year marriage. This particular one, named Cassie the kitty, is extremely demanding. I should have realized that when we went to the animal shelter to adopt a cat. She ran out and wrapped herself around my husband's ankles. End of story. She chose him, not the other way around. She and Tova, our female Canaan dog, got along from the beginning.

When I have a dinner party, she is very interested in all the activities. She liked the size of my serving bowl and I had to throw the napkins out that I put into it. She decided it was a good place to take a snooze. She hates it when we have company, hiding in the closet until they leave. Some of our friends never realized we had a cat and she's been around for 4 years now.

Often she wakes me up at 3 AM by scratching on her post which is in our bedroom. I think that's going to have to change. All in all, this is the most annoying cat I have ever owned, or should I say, has owned me.

Hello. The world is populated by cats with people. We do all the work and they amuse themselves just watching us cater to their needs.

So, you're blaming it all on the cat because you haven't been blogging?

Bad grandma (as alipurr would say)! Actually, we should say, bad pets for distracting us from the real purpose we get online -- to have fun with our online friends.

Great pictures. I think it's time to get your cat a computer of her own. :)

I think I dixcovered a solution to your dilemma. Blog while you have company. Then the cat would be hiding in the closet. :)

Happy New Year!
