No Regrets

Every blog post since Saturday, 07 March, has had photos of foxes, glass, or birds. This post will not break that pattern. I got a couple dozen shots of the fox today. The cats were outdoors when I spotted her. I got the girls inside but not easily. Kenz came right in but Bella was her usual self and refused to let me pick her up outside. She has always been like that but from my tone, knew I was not about to play games with her.

I'm taking a break from cleaning. It's not fun but part of the necessary drudgery of life. Wax is drying on my kitchen floor at the moment and it will soon be ok to walk in my studio without shoes. Yes, necessary.

I'm going to a friend's house for lunch tomorrow and she invited me to come this afternoon, have some drinks and supper and spend the night but I was disciplined and am doing the chores instead. I hemmed and hawed and wavered back and forth but decided to stay and do housework. Am I crazy? I don't know but that's today's path.

Tom Rush explains the predicament quite well with Joni Mitchell's, Urge For Going, and No Regrets.

I'm one who believes that a different path still gets you there in the end. The cleaning will wait quite nicely for another day. I've found the dust perfectly content to bide its time. Enjoy your friend.

Dear Kat, I stayed home on Sunday but went out yesterday and visited two friends, had my hair cut, etc and after your advice and Oceans, this is my horoscope for today:

You love to live an organized life, but sometimes structure can be overrated. Today, you need to loosen up a little bit! Toss out your schedules and act more spontaneously. Treat yourself to an indulgence or two. Leave your bed unmade. Don't do the dishes until later on. Being messy isn't the end of the world, you know! It will feel good to stop being such a self-disciplinarian for one day. There's no harm in a little bit of chaos. In fact, you'll probably feel quite stimulated by it.

I am listening and in about five minutes I'm leaving for a walk.

Ocean, I'm listening to you, Kat, and my horoscope and going for a walk. You should have seen me wielding a curling iron today. LOLOL
