My Belated Howdy to my neighbors
It's me, Teri (and the cats of Furrydance) of #57 Blogland Lane. I should thing all my neighbors must think I'm a hermit since it's been 5 weeks since I "rolled" up to my piece of heaven at #57, and I've yet to write an "intro" post.
Finding Bliss at 57
I'm thoroughly enjoying my small space and the "five cats in the yard" ala CSNY, and they are enjoying munching on the occasional leaf and insect that float into their cat condo (still housecats but with their kitty arboretum in the yard, they can see the birds, sniff the air and lay in the sweet sunlight outside but be safe).
Now I'm settled into my little home on wheels, I will have time to be with friends, and they will learn I make a great Mojito. That and great Guacamole are two things that spell "relaxation" to me and I think my new neighbors will find that out, too :-)
I got my new bike, it's turquoise and cream--just like my favorite uncles old Chevy Bel Air and I will be pedaling around to visit, bringing with me, my picnic basket of "relaxation". I also look forward to sleeping in a lot (Oh, of course I am retired in Blogland!) and taking some walks with the kitties to get to know the other critters in the neighborhood too (of course, there are no mean dogs, angry cats, or stealthy bunnies...everyone is friendly in Blogland). In fact, I'll leave my front door open when the cats are in the Cat Condo, and a my 4 legged neighbors can wander in to say hello.
The bird feeders are up, and the birdbath has fresh water every day and one of my favorite pastimes is watching the bathers flutter and send water droplets flying like diamonds in the sun. This late in the year, I will have to wait til spring to plant the Nasturtiums and sweet peas I think, but I did plant hedge rosemary all around my home on wheels, so the wheels are hidden now and the fragrance is so fresh! I've hung the hammock and hope there are many days left before the weather cools, that I can lay out and sway in the breeze like the trees...
Well, I'm about to make a tasty Seviche, to go along with a pitcher of Mojitos...so please stop by and join me, won't you?
