A HEAVY HEART
My heart is heavy tonight. As I pulled into my driveway coming from work, I noticed a black fluffy tail sticking out from behind the large bush at the end of my driveway. I figured Gray's kitten, Fluffy, was waiting for me to come home to feed him. I got out of the car and walked around to the other side of the bush and there lay Fluffy. I didn't need to touch him, I knew he was gone. I haven't even had the chance to take his picture from the back porch while he is eating. He is (was) more skittish than his mother, Gray, who lets me pick her up and rub her back, head and belly. It really broke my heart to see him there, even though he looked very peaceful. I hope he found his way to the Rainbow Bridge.
I had a pretty good day at work today. I kept saying to myself that today was going to be a good day. Everyone I worked with seemed to be in a fairly good mood, except the yankee ogre, who came in late due to taking her husband to the doctor. She had a few moments that she had to have her say about something. But all in all, it was a good day.
I felt sorry for my assistant director. She was trying so hard to do the payroll and other important paperwork and no one would leave her alone. She even went out and got into her car and drove to another spot on the lot to try to be by herself to do the work. The director, who was having a really bad day, even went out to the parking lot to find her when I asked him a question about something that HE could have answered. He didn't make any major decisions today nor answer any questions with any conviction. His wife is having some problems with her health. He was asking a couple of us if we knew anything about vertigo. We both answered his questions, but I was telling him I have vertigo, but only when I am going down stairs that have openwork railings on at least one side. He seemed quite concerned about her, and she won't go to a doctor. I actually felt sorry for him today. He hung around work much longer than he usually does, which makes me wonder if he wanted to go home at all. He and his wife had had an argument about going to the doctor last night. He should know how stubborn women are! Lol.
I noticed that though I have 2 followers on my poetry journal, I have no comments on any of the poetry. Not sure if it is because no one is reading my new journal, or if my poetry is too sombre and no one wants to comment. I don't know how to let others know about my journals. I used to go on the journal board and post but that is now gone. I thought once about dressing up in something spectacular and going out into cyberspace and advertise with a big sign.......LOL.
I have had intermittent wifi for several days and have added comments to others' journals when my wifi service would allow. I am trying very hard to keep up. I found out from a reader that there is a way to keep up with comments and new entries........kinda like alerts. But tonight I don't even remember how I found them. One sends an email to you when someone comments on your journal/blog. But since no one has commented on any of my 3 public journals/blogs, I don't know if it works.
It has been really cold here, low 30's at night, 50's during the day. I guess winter has finally decided to visit and stay a spell.
One of my readers asked if I were going to reinstate my KITTYCAPTIONS. I have attempted to add pictures from time to time and my wifi signal won't let me. So I will try one again tonight to see if it works.
Of course, it didn't work. I will keep trying till I figure it out.
Hope everyone is fine and life is treating you well.
NEVER LEAVE A PAGE UNTURNED...........
