For The Birds–And The Cats

photo unsplash.com      My cats love to stare out the window.  More than one has slammed into a window trying to catch something.  A bird.  A squirrel…although the squirrels holler back and frequently tease the cats through the windows (and the dogs by running along the top edge of the fence—among other things)…now again the …

Three Year and Five Year Q and A Journals

photo taken from unsplash.com I have been working to get my youngest more involved in tracking himself and keeping up with his to dos and whatnot.  He has his large undated Passion Planner.  Some months he is very into it.  Other months, he could care less.  (Thank goodness it’s undated, so skipping a few months …
