|Alli and her 5 kittens. She, a foreigner, the kittens, all Plainfielders. |
But first, an apology to all those who have kept on checking this blog hoping to find something new. Thanks are also in order to those who kept on checking and to those who kept sending encouraging words.
I can only say that life happens and then some! To say that a break was needed would be an understatement. Not only a break was needed, it was distance, more than a break, that was necessary. Sometimes, in my opinion, when one gets so into a routine one loses perspective and might even forget why the routine was even established.
Anyway. Here I am. Looking back at this blog and wondering which path to take this time around. Defining a new path might take a while, but, who is rushing? Not me. The path might be that one of closing for good this space, then again, there is so much in and out of Plainfield that can be shared! Take Alli, a found cat that was brought to me by my daughter. The cat came all the way from Paterson. When my daughter arrived with the cat, skinny and dehydrated, we immediately decided to give a try to "cat-ownership" once again. Within weeks we found out that Alli was not just skinny and dehydrated but she was pregnant as well! Wow!
August 19th, early morning, we saw Alli give birth to her 5 kittens in our basement! Five kittens. We kept Mom and her kittens together for 12 weeks (as recommended) and today 4 kittens have found loving homes--thanks to those who opened their doors to Alli's kittens! Alli and Harley have become part of our family. This event, along with a busy, busy summer and fall season due to relatives coming and going, marked the second half of 2013. As I said, life happens and then some!
There is a lot more to share, to observe, and to pull apart for closer inspection.
Thanks again to those who kept checking this page.
