Taking a Moment to Celebrate the Earth


Our Supreme Mother.
Knows nothing of the word: hesitate.
Moving,shifting,adapting,changing- constantly.
In the eye of a vicious and relentless storm.
Not one of Her making or choosing.
She stands:
resolute and alone.
Struggling to survive, to flourish.
As forces beyond Her control,
Chip away at the majesty of our fading blue planet.
She has not failed us.
She will not give up without a fight.
And in return and in reply:
Can we afford to hesitate, any longer?


This is a poem I wrote a couple of years ago over at My Poetic Path. I think these words ring truer (and louder so to speak) with each passing year.

The Earth Day site is a great place to read about many ways we can help the Earth, every day. Earth Day, April 22nd is just a good reminder to make it a priority.  

Simple, positive initiatives that add up to big changes; one person at a time.

And aren't those kinds of "revolutions" the best and most lasting of all?

Can we afford to hesitate?

So, How Was Your Friday the 13th?

I was surprised to see all the hits for this particular post yesterday re: Friday the 13th.

In that post, I had shared an inspiring quote for that date, last year. Over 400 people read that post here yesterday and the visits continue today. My other blogs had extra traffic to Friday the 13th posts too!

I had a regular, ordinary day, yesterday. Nothing oh so wonderful, but nothing bad either LOL.
I am a bit superstitious but not about that particular date.

What are your thoughts on Friday the 13th? Hope you had a wonderful, extra-lucky day yesterday in spite of the date!!!

PS: Mr. Cheddar is now posting his very own haiku poetry over at Veggies, Yarns & Tails!

His first haiku poem was posted today.  

Happy Weekend! :<)

Mr. Cheddar: Kinda,Sorta...Back on Bug Patrol!


Is that a speck of dirt Meowmie or a BUG???

We've had a few warm days here recently and with it, the appearance of the first bugs/insects of spring.

It should be the time for Mr. Cheddar to spring into action and be on "bug patrol" . The reality the other night, was far from it.

It is a BUG!  Yikes....a big, big bug!!!!

That's better.

 Stay on that side of the bar and we'll get along just fine, OK?

Oh Meowmie, I am not hiding behind my Cat Cave.

I'm just looking for something. Go away with that camera!


And that is exactly what happened.

The bug made a jump and Chedster did too. Right behind his Cat Cave, where he stayed until the bug disappeared. Amazing but true. LOL

As any of Mr. Cheddar's fans already know, he like to be considered strong and capable, especially in terms of his bug-catching abilities. But when it comes to BIG BUGS (click to check out some history on that subject) well....let's just say, some things never change.

We love ya Cheddie, even if you are afraid of bugs.

I wouldn't want to eat them either. ;<)

PS: Sorry for the blur...Camera shake unavoidable when it comes to capturing Ched and bug photos!!!

An Encore Wish from Me and Mr. Cheddar.


This post/photo is from the Happy Break archives.

Can't really improve on this one for heartfelt Easter wishes!
Mr. Cheddar is not in agreement with the add-on ears though. ;<)

A Happy Easter to all of you.

I hope the Easter Bunny (or Feline) is very generous this year.

Hugs and Headbonks!
