Madness & Love

Penny the Cat & Cut Flowers

chairs-garden-backyd-wedding-SwittersB

Oh, yesterday was a magical day in our backyard garden. We celebrated a family member’s wedding and all went blissfully well. On the morning of the blessed event, a neighbor kindly brought many cut flowers from their magnificent garden and set them on the kitchen counter.

Soon, Penny the Cat escaped her confines and made her way to the kitchen counter. Our collective backs turned and busy with preparations, we didn’t notice Penny was perhaps trying to satisfy some deficiency in chlorophyll. Penny the Cat was hidden amongst the containers of cut flowers chewing away.

Yes, a less than cute and cuddly pet shot of Penny the Cat savaging the greenery of the cut flowers.

Penny the Cat was removed from beneath the cut flowers, with much cat folderol, and dispatched to a remote corner of the house until the flowers could be placed in their eye catching settings. In the end, the flowers survived and Penny fussed about until the festivities wound down (too many people = agitated cats).

aftermath….

It was a blessed Christmas, quite Merry and in perfect balance this year. In years past, there was a harried sense, a regret over priorities askew, too much focus and finding/buying and less on the spiritual, familial and giving thanks. This year the pace was busy, there was my usual pre-holiday cold, the last minute this and that…but, this year everyone (12 of us) was in a good place. There was the right balance of presents, visiting, great foods and lots of hugs and ‘I love you’s. We all paid silent homage to those that have passed and were instrumental in establishing this celebration in our young minds.

Of course, this morning everyone is zonked out and there are many dishes, glasses, cups to clean up. But, the warm glow of thankfulness rules. Right now, I have a five year old grandson, who spent the night next to me, itching to go kick a new soccer ball somewhere and not hear ‘hey, not in the house!!’
