FIVE GOOD THINGS

Taking a lesson from Russ and Lisa, but I think I'll do five at a time. LOL

Feathery cat teasers. They come in great colors. I'm not sure why because last time I heard cats can't see colors, but they are great for working out a high energy cat. When Bandit really gets into it she can get at least two feet into the air and add a twist. She'll even come over and give me the "eye" when she wants to play.

Crocuses. We always get a few about the end of January. They may be little and wimpy, but they are a promise of longer days and sunshine ahead. They do look a litte forlorn if a late season snow storm comes by long after it's expected.

Any documentary by David Attenborough. Started his career with the BBC and used his passion for the natural world to create several wonderful documentaries. No talking heads and plenty of absolutely stunning photography. Close up shots of tiny flies, fish or insect larva that make them look like they're the size of large hummingbirds. He has an ability to explain concepts without talking down to his audience.

Laptop computers. It'a wonderful to be able to surf the net or work on projects in the comfort of a great chair. By the end of the week sitting at the computer desk is too much like work.

Stash teas. Northwest based company that has a line of black, green and herbal teas that is really astonishing. I think you could buy a different one each week and take at least six months if not longer to go through the whole inventory. I'm fond of their Lemon Ginger herbal tea.

And all of you, hugs to all.

Cats DO see color, very similarly to what we see.  Their sense of taste is very different from ours, but not their eyesight.  Dogs, on the other hand, have taste buds similar to ours, but do not see in vivid living color.  Or so I have read...  Lisa  :-]

Your cats are energetic?  Mine are lazy and fat -- and will maybe bat at some string briefly before going back to sleep.  Guess they take after their dad.  ;)
