Hanging Out In The Waiting Room

“Someday you're gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You'll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing...”  ~Elizabeth Gilbert 


Captn' Gus and I are always having such fun adventures.  This past week Gus developed a urinary tract block and had to spend a week in and out of the emergency vets and our regular vets. Urinary blocks in cats are life threatening and even though he's home and off the catheter, he's still not back to his old self yet.  The next two weeks will be cautious ones for Gus as there is still a high risk of him forming a block again.
 Gussie paws! Still in hospital... But is feeling better and he has no kidney damage! 
And so the painting begins here in DeluxeVille!


Pyrex Pink Baby!  I've decided to bring some color back into my life and since I've always wanted a pink bathroom, I decided to start there!   I'll post some pictures when it's all said and done.


I've also been doing some of this!  I love having my little truck "Ruby the Rocket" to drive around!   I should have gotten myself a little truck a long time ago!


Still working on getting this back to what it was.  Rebuilding takes time and I'm trying to remind myself to enjoy the journey of rediscovering things about myself I had lost.

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.” ~Barbara De Angelis


  1. I always find gardening as good therapy. Your little yard is adorable. Glad your kitty is doing better, fingers crossed for you. Love a good pink bathroom, 1st thing I did in my house was paint it pink,

    1. I'm really interested to hear about your new adventure in life!

  2. Its such a great feeling when you can do what you want. I'm a small truck gal myself. I love smaller trucks and always will.

    1. I love that was just what I needed to get my things back home!! I ave a very special spot in my heart for the little truck!

  3. I LOVE the PYREX PINK bathroom! Glad you are doing well… :-)

  4. Oh the pyrex pink looks great! The yard will be back to it's former glory, you might even get some ducks living there!! :) (monica)

  5. Hi Mary, I hope little Gus is fully recovered. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  6. Totally agree about the truck-got my first one in 1988-big city, going to work, etc all in my little truck--It worked wonderfully.
    Very envious of your Pyrex Pink bath, send more pictures !!

  7. Just think what would have happened to Cap'n Gus if you hadn't rescued him from his wandering life!

    Glad you're getting your color back!
