Bath time!  Of course, after she comes in from playing in the sprinkler with her sister, she’ll probably need another…

My 18-pound cat, Nanette, who joined our family in February when we adopted her from Capital Area Humane Society, loves to sit on the edge of the tub when I take a bath.  I love this kitty.

141/365+ proof of God’s love

It was a beautiful day, weather-wise, and I glimpsed God’s love in cuddles from both of my hyper pooches after a bath and two walks this morning before church.  Dogs know how to do kindness right.

Avoidance

Sometimes when I’m lying in my bath,
Water as hot as I can make it
Coloring pale skin red,
I fixate on the shower head
To turn off my thoughts –
They chase me everywhere
Often bigger than my control of them,
They’ve never taken to leashes or cages
Though there are a few medications that quieten them.
Some days I wish I were simpler,
Possessed of smaller, shallower musings…
I repeat to myself it is what it is
And fix my gaze on the shiny shower head,
Avoiding the inward looking
As well as window dreaming.
