Remember to cherish your loved ones


This month's challenge at ScrapMojo is, "We would like you to use I'm a little bit _______ and a little bit ________....The 2ND part of the challenge is to use dots."

All I could think about is that I still feel so sad about Jersey dying, but I also feel so happy that Captain has come into our lives. But I am not just a little bit happy and sad; I am a lot happy and sad. So I changed it to, "I'm still sad, and I'm happy."

I planned on writing a long thing about Jersey, but it's still too soon, so the dots worked well to get a few memories down, and also were a good place to journal some highlights of Captain's first month with us before I forget them.

I feel as though it might be appropriate to start singing some tunes from The Lion and Elton John. (You can change out lion for dog and cat or dog or cat.)

[FS:] From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life
[FS:] It's The Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life

I meant The Lion King.

Oh look at that pussy cat. I am a pussy cat person through and through and very much miss owning one. I don't think I have cried so much or so easily (and you have to peel a lot of onions to make me cry - stiff upper lip and all that) as when my Wozzi (completely stupid but very beautiful Himalayan) and my Rambo (black hunter cat who performed extraordinary feats) died. You do scrap work so well....I have never tried but feel quite inclined...my daughter's 18th is coming up and I'm thinking that might be a good project. How did you start? Learn?
