Spring's Promises

The spring is fresh and fearless
And every leaf is new,
The world is brimmed with moonlight,
The lilac brimmed with dew.
Here in the moving shadows
I catch my breath and sing,
My heart is fresh and fearless
And over-brimmed with spring.

Ah, the weekend is here again, and it looks to be a great one weather-wise. I'm looking forward to heading out to the fruit stand on Saturday and Sunday I will probably just rest up.

Thanks for all the compliments about my Miss Minga. For those who don't know, my baby will be 21 in July. I've had her since she was a baby. Our neighbor's cat gave birth to four kittens. They were such wee little things. Hubby and I loved the mama cat, and when the kittens were old enough, we used to bring them to our place to play. One day our neighbor was outside bragging about how he used to beat them up. I was livid when I heard. As soon as hubby and I got the chance, we stole all four of the kittens and found them homes. We'd already chosen to keep Miss Minga so it was a matter of placing the other three. Miss Minga has been with us ever since.  She and I have literally grown old together.
 Wishing you all a sunny and beautiful weekend!


  1. That was a wonderful act of kindness that you and your hubby did!!!

    I can't stand when some people are cruel to animals!!!

  2. What a horrid neighbor.

    You can show us pic of your sweetie, any time.

    Enjoy your weekend!!!!

  3. Have a wonderfully restful weekend Mary...and...Miss Minga is one lucky kitty! :)
    She's adorable.

  4. What a miserable, awful human being. I'm so glad you and your huband found them the living homes they deserve. I will never understand some people and things, no matter how long i live!
