grey snooze time

I must admit, if it is grey outside, I fall asleep. Apparently the family of cats and dog do too.

But dear Kitty Zambini has some sort of weird anemia I have to insert meds through a syringe to mouth. He is on to me, when I am coming...he gives me the glare...even if we have the special Pharmacist..mixing it with chicken broth. I hate the part where my pets hate me

Yes Feline leukemia is so far not it.. Not organ breakdowns yet. Vet info has no cures, so we try many things. It looks like an amemic reaction common in the South USA...that sometimes does not activate for years and years...or never.
He is on prednisone...which has reactions.


I take so many photos and then I get one amidst the mundane and just plain awful...that I like. Here is my Peace lily indoor plant ready to bloom.


Kellar over today. She spent a lot of time on her own, teaching Rosie to roll over. So far she has a half roll over from Rosie, But the bond is there.

Dogs playing in the sun

Weather has been very mild here. Way too warm for February. Yesterday was a very grey day. My house looks across a small pond. By sunset I could see that today would be a sunny day.

The road not taken

Bought these in the 1970's at an Iowa auction. I thought they were old. They are probably from a serious crafter in the 1970's during the revival of stained glass. I see them every morning and they make me think,

My Funny valentine

So Rosie has her Valentine gift, inspired by Westminster and all those dogs who have tons of ribbons. A ribbon and a portrait. She is 7 months old. I don't know that I will ever show her in anything. But she learns quickly.

Last week's chewed up soft toy was Underdog...with a funny recorded message voice box. The first thing to go was Underdog's cape. Then most of his body. Now all that exists is a bit of pulp chewed toy...and the voice box. Every now and then I hear from somewhere in the house."Never fear, Underdog is here."

This dog brings me joy every day. What a gift!

A few posts

This was in my fortune cookie.

And when you are just in need of some color..Grocery stores are so full of flowers. Just when you can't stand more grey...Sunflowers..Ah, my State flower, when you usually see fields of Russian, they say Sunflowers ,The ones used for Sunflower seeds and oil, in Kansas the fields are full of chiggers and bees and it is over 90 degrees.

I am a weenie. I hate that environment So I just stuck with the store display. Maybe they came from Mexico. I took flower pictures because it was the most color I had seen in days.
And besides, I am going to get a deal on some flowers when valentine's day has passed.


I think I am becoming a winter recluse.
This is my recluse cat. Penumbra or Pen. She sits on my desk and waits for her supper to be served.

Signs of Spring? Long

Hey guys...I am Not going to go out of my way to send 365 project photos. Some of them are wonderful some are awful. All will be posted under Brenda Gadd on FB.
Politics effect me to the point of getting sick. I have to withdraw and pick my battles.
To me, I have to be the thing I seek. If is peace and joy then seek it every day. Peace means being kind to a neighbor who acts like an asshole and yet, I think, has a marvelous wife. In the neighbor hood we just call Him Mr. Maureen.
Mrs Maureen clearly has no power or influences far as I can see ..good dogs.Puppies, as yet untrained. I greet on the street She seems so grateful for an introduction and talk from neighbors.
Yeah, her house was called a Spangles after the restaurant chain. Just like the artist at the end of the street Roger S...His house really does look like a Star wars attack vehicle. LET IT GO PEOPLE!
How can I make peace, operate in peace and yet defend things that i cannot yet control with our nation? I write the letters.'s photos are not accurate. The Liquor Store was changing beer banners, which I hope is a sign of Spring. But the photo says another thing. Complete accident. They were so nice to me and even granted a minute of socialization to pup Rosie.
Sigh is my new comment.
