With the view out your windows of intense blue skies and vivid green fields.

And Ellie Belle on point as she can hear voles or field mice in the pasture…

Rain showers move in quickly as on cue to sprinkle the crops and the land…

As Melody runs for cover!

I love seeing all that looked dead a few months ago, come back alive with a new season of hope…the farmers are out in the fields again and I am out and about doing spring time clean up…it feels good to breathe deeply the smell of Spring, while working up a sweat with the warmth of the sun on my back.

    I would settle for ‘boring’…nice sunny warm days…..*sighs*
    Maybe soon…..
    The flare-up comes & goes & is driving me a bit crazy! This too shall pass…
    My ‘little Purrince’ has settled down a bit which is a releif. He still is a ‘clown in fur’ & does his silly antics but he is not as intense thankfully!!
    Last nite I had trouble sleeping & Purrince Siddhartha Henry came an snuggled close to my head & purred loudly trying to calm me down…it was so cute…..
    He is such a comfort to me!!!
    Hope things are going well for you HRCG & WB.
    (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen & Purrince Siddhartha Henry ❤ ❤
    P.S.: Please kiss Ellie Belle & melody for me xXx

      I can’t imagine having the flare ups….do you know when they are coming or not? I wish they had more things that could help you. I can actually say it now, thankfully Bill is ok health wise. We have spent the last few weeks driving back and forth to Walla Walla, WA. to see his doctors for various tests…everything from a biopsy on his temporal artery as they were worried it was temporal artritus….it was inflamed but not conclusive. They had him on prednesone to prevent a possible stroke and or blindness….the reason they were concerned with Bill was that he has had a headache everyday since the first part of March and about a month ago now overnight his vision became blurry….since the prednesone did not help the headache at all they now have him coming off of it slowly….so next we saw the back doctor who fused his neck last fall to see if anything was wrong there….and all looked great….so next they sent him to do an MRI of his brain to check for a tumor or evidence of strokes and the MRI came back perfect thank the Lord! Then he was referred to a eye doctor who also found nothing wrong in his vision etc. BUT he still has the headache and his vision is yet blurry….he sees our eye doctor in a week for a full exam to improve his glasses. My last weeks have been full of medical jargon and outcomes of tests…while keeping up with our business….it is so dang hard when they cannot find a reason or answer for us….he will be seeing the neurologist next….and yesterday morning his lower back blew and today he is yet hurting….of course he is going to the shop all day…I feel so bad for him, he needs a break from pain and health issues! Other than his low back everything has checked out fine so we are thankful for that:)
      I am so glad that the Purrince brings you joy and also comfort as that is what soothes our hearts…I have felt Minnie very close to me lately, she loved this time of year and I miss her so much….thankfully Ellie is a great comfort to me too as she is with me 24/7 and she is fun! She makes me laugh and she is so good too….sleeps with us and snuggles….she is a talker and loves to love you:) I hope this finds you well and that all is well for you:) Have missed you…..

    Minus the dust; our weather has been just as wild!! We had snow on Wednesday & Thursday. Still cold enough today to snow but it didn’t!!!
    2 weeks ago I was wearing Capri’s & a T-shirt; the past 3 days I have been in long pants; sweat top & winter coat….**sighs**
    Oh HRCG Siddhartha Henry is a ‘wild child’ & he can be so naughty & then so adorable & so loving…he is the ‘entire’ package! This morning he woke me up at 5:45 A.M. for breakfast…he ws gentle about it, lol…I left the bedroom door open & he was well behaved til 8 A.M. & then the ‘zoomies’ around me on the bed started>>ROFWL>>>how can one be angry at that???
    I went into a flare-up this afternoon & you know he came to check on me twice to see if I was all right. Nose kissed me even! I am so glad the “Littul Purrince” is a part of my Life.
    (((Hugs))) Sherri-Ellen 🙂

    Well the warmish Spring weather tanked HRCG! Has been raining & hailing on & off for days now & temps in single digits; too cold for Purrince Siddhartha Henry to be out in. he too has FHV (Herpes) so I have to be mindful of the temp & wind chill.
    Whenever the weather warms up we will continue condo training, lol….
    He is such a joy (even as high energy as he is!!!)
    Kiss Ellie & Melody for me….
    And her eis a GREAT BIG {{{HUG}}} for you HRCG!!!
    Love Sherri-Ellen & the ‘littul’ Purrince ❤ ❤ ❤

      Hi there! Our weather went from 81 degrees one day and 55 degrees the next day with 30 plus mph wind….even had some dust blowing which is not good….it is dry here. We are still around 56 degrees today and slightly overcast with a few sprinkles here and there….over the weekend it will begin to change back to the high 70’s next week again .
      I am so glad that Prince Siddhartha Henry became your fur angel boy:) Not only has he blessed you with so much love but you too have given him a wonderful life to live with love, food and protection:) I know what you mean while he may have lots of zip and go, his antics make one laugh…that is the joy of owning a kitten! He sounds great, wish we lived closer:) Love and HUGS to you and to Purrince:)
      Love,
      HRCG

    Isn’t spring delicious? It has been such a brutal (short) winter, spring has twice the flavor. We are so grateful to be able to open the windows again!

        Ellie Belle and Melody both say huggsss and kisses back:) Today it was 79 degrees here….about a month early for us. Still it is beautiful and feels so good to go out in the sun and be comfy:)So glad that you are blessing the Purrince with the chance to be outdoors….am sure he is sort of scared but also very curious and the sun should feel good on his black fur:)
