Positive, in the face of opposition..

It can be surprisingly difficult to remain positive.

One would expect to be greeted with help unlimited, if one should cry out for help.
Just to say, my lovely GP seemed almost worse off than I felt, is rather an understatement.

Who would you vote for, if given the choice. None of the current choices, I can say!!

I promised myself some positives, so here goes.

A soft pnk cloud behind a palm frond, would have been one of my dreams.. way back when....




I still get a minor thrill to realise this is the real life view from my balcony. It often does resemble Paradise.


This is a menace approaching. I was slightly amused at the sight of this gathering storm cloud. I rather expected it would evaporate and amount to nothing. Wrong!!



We  had a massive downpour, and it turned bitterly cold.

So, the positive, is this funny,, furry pic of Morty, sitting in a cardboard box, beside my seat, in the lounge.

I suspect he thinks he is invisible. He is so gorgeous, but also, very hostile if the mood
takes his fancy! I bear the bleeding scars of his 'love bites'!!

Here, this might be some happy for your day Meggie, a kitty in a box cartoon. I love the way cats absolutely HAVE to get in the box.

One of our kitties is the same way -- he can be really mean. I think it's just his way of telling us how much he loves us LOL.

Kitties just love boxes. Morty certainly is a beauty!! I'm so happy to see him featured on your blog!

My brother has a cat that has a show fetish, if you take off your shoes he is straight into them - head first! Crazy.
Cheers, Meggie.

Meggie,
Morty is a clever cat- somehow cats seem to love boxes- I know Mars sure does- She jumps in them and sits on top of them like they are her throne.
Your paradise is beautiful- wishing you warm winds and a day that brings you some fun and laughter.
It is very smoky here today- there are some serious forest fires in our neighbouring province and the sky is quite smokey. They give an air quality alert which is almost unheard of here. The sun was a brilliant orange as it was setting.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Your view from your balcony really is beautiful -- it does look like paradise!
Cats and boxes -- put an empty box on the floor and it's instantly got a kitty occupant! I love watching one of our two try to squeeze into a shoe box that is clearly much too small for either one of them!

ah the yin and yang - hope you find a balance somewhere, Meggie

Hi Meggie
I'm here through Idle Persiflage. I take it that part of your pessimism may have something to do with the current instability in our beloved country, politics wise. hopefully it will settle soon. in the meantime our distractions are wonderful especially Sheryl Crow's song. Thanks. It's good to meet you.

Hi, Meggie, I'm just catching up on my blogging, and wanted to say "hello" and "how are you?"

I hope you and everyone are all well.

Morty is the cutest cat I have ever seen, by the way... And what a great name. :-)
