Monday Morning This and That

Good Monday morning.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was quiet.  Went shopping for food on Saturday and cooked on Sunday.  Fortunately they do not work next door on weekends so it was quiet all around.

Took this picture of the moon while waiting for the bus on Saturday.

Hubby has already begun looking for the positives about the building next door--less cold wind in the winter, less noise for the busy street.  He's right, but I like the sun, and I love sitting in my rocker and watching the moon.  All of that will be gone.  But, there is not much, nothing I can do about it.  Received this response from the Community Board....

'I certainly understand your frustration. This is a matter of concern to a lot of our residents.  Unfortunately,  there is not much that can be done if the project is done 'as of right', that is according to the building code. If the project developers want to add something that is beyond the scope of the building code, then they may need to come before the Board to allow for community input. If that happens, notice is sent to neighboring residents to request their input.  Any zoning changes affecting large areas are done through the City Council.'

Guess who is going to get blasted with my ire next?

The new kitties that I feed.  The black and white is a
baby who follows the tuxie all over it.  It is so cute to watch.  Don't know how they are getting back here, but they do have a way.  Makes me happy that I can put some food in their bellies.

Have a fantastic day.



  1. Have a good week, Mary! Cats can get into the most surprising places, can't they!

    1. It's still dark out when I get up and he is out there sleeping already.

  2. I love that your hubby is trying to look for positives!!

  3. It is great when one can find a positive outlook in a situation. I do believe your husband is trying to adjust to and accept the inevitable and is trying to ease your anxiety, too.
    Your little fur babies will adjust, too 🐈
    Wishing you the very best 🍂🍁🎃

    1. I wish I could think more positive as well. Ir's hard when you know you are going to lose all your daylight.

  4. Nice weekend. Some positives are better than none. Hopefully more positives will make themselves known.

    1. I wish. If only they would not make it 8 story. At least with 5 or 6 stories I can get some daylight.

  5. Although not always easy, if you can, it is better to look for the positives.
    Sending my good wishes.

    All the best Jan

    1. Thank you. I am trying to look for positives. I just fear losing all my plants when they no longer get any sun.

  6. Is is so frustrating fighting with bureaucracy because they usually win. I am glad that you have some more kitties to feed and to make you smile. They are great stress relievers.

  7. Anything goverment it seem there some type of bureaucracy with it. Being personal care giver there plenty with it.
    I not much on excittment any more.
    Coffee is on

  8. A study by UCLA found that people who practice meditation in the long run , have "less old" brains than people of the same age who do not. Participants who have meditated for more than 20 years have more gray matter volume. "We expected the difference to be minimal," said Florian Kurth, author of the study, "however, we observed a wide range of effects of meditation on different areas of the entire brain," he added.

  9. Thinking of you, hoping all is well :)

    All the best Jan
