THE POWER OF NETWORKING

Monday, April 25, 2011

In helping others and receiving help through networking, you are creating a spirit of interdependence that is practical and beneficial as well. No other business skill is as valuable or provides a more lasting legacy than networking to help you reach your goals. In the process, you can build relationships which last a lifetime.

~Peggy Collins

To me this is why SP friends are so important to motivate and help you in achieving your goals!!

SP, we have babies!!!

Friday, April 22, 2011

Miss Kitty showed up for breakfast this morning and has had her babies either late last night or early this morning. Since this is Good Friday, I am hoping it was just this morning. Do not know where she is hiding them, but will watch to see where she goes after she leaves from eating. The best I can tell she had 4 babies (according to her little nipples). She had 3 with her 1st litter.

Have a Good Friday and Earth Day!!

Today I take DH to VA for his Eye Exam (120 miles round trip).

Today, tomorrow and Sunday have been declared "Pray For Rain Days" for Texas by our governor because of the fires and widespread drought.

    I so remember baby furry critters in our house; once it was six rambunctious and beautiful puppies. Basement carpeted with newspapers, but it was so much fun! Enjoy that new life.

False alarm.....no babies yet

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Miss Kitty just showed up yesterday afternoon and was still full with babies. She just does not usually miss time to eat. It's possible she was out looking for a place to have her babies.

Will keep you informed.

Have a Sparked day friends!

    I was about to suggest that maybe she is looking for a nice space to have her kittens! I will never forget when I was a kid that our cat gave birth right in the living room floor! It was amazing!

New mama (grandma)?

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Miss Kitty did not show up for supper last night or breakfast this morning leading me to believe she has had her kittens. I know, we should have her spayed, but not in the funds right now. I locked her up for a week when I thought she would accept a male, but apparently it was too late.

We kept a male from her 1st litter and had him neutered a couple of months ago. By the time these new babies are weaned and given away maybe I can get her spayed or give her away too.

More later on the litter.

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived ... this is to have succeeded!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today my secret of success is the number on the scale. I lost 1.5 lbs!!! I have been in a plateau for so long that I got on and off the scale 3 times to see if this was right. WOOHOO!!

Yesterday I actually went a little over my highest caloric level. (I had been staying on the low side every day hoping to lose, maybe I was not eating enough).

Making bean soup and sour dough bread for us and neighbors for lunch....much go and check things.

Have a Sparkling day!
