And then...

I had a nice relaxing weekend. I made a 7 Layer Salad for potluck since we had communion this week. The deaconesses prefer a cold menu when potluck and communion weeks overlap. The service was just what I needed after last week. Some time to reflect and try to seek out the ability to forgive those who do not ask for it (even when they should). I may have an outdoor cat in addition to O'Malley. There is a beautiful black & white long hair cat that has been coming around. It craves attention and has been thrilled at the food I've left out for it the last couple of days. If only I knew that it could get along with O'Malley then I would bite the bullet for the vet visit and bring it inside. I would love another cat, but it's O'Malley's house. I spent the rest of the weekend down at Lake Bud Isaiah in Mantachie, MS. Don't worry; no one else has heard of it either. I got to spend time with E's in-laws and enjoyed the 5 month old. It's amazing how quickly an infant changes. E's in-laws have been quick to adopt me into their family. It is a nice feeling. In not so amazing news, I was once again welcomed to work by an issue I had no knowledge of. The details are the same as always: Mr. Boss Man promises something to someone without getting all of the facts and I have to sort out how to make it work. But, even through the mess I have a reason to smile today. I approved an invoice today for some yard work done around one of the towers: "For fixen fence along street..."

Nothing likr having attention loving cats. Wish I had my little girl with me. Have you tried bringing in the stray to see if O'Malley will try to get along?
