Dilemma -
A dilemma is a problem offering at least two solutions or possibilities, of which none is practically acceptable.
Well, we are approaching the cool season, and I have such a soft heart..really it is a flaw, and if ever I am in an interview mode and am asked the question, "What is your biggest flaw?" I would have to say having a soft heart.
It truly is a detriment to the smooth flow of life sometimes...more than not for me. I can see every side of a problem and I can feel it,too. I have said this before, I think too much...and some folks say I don't think about the 'right things' what ever that is, but I do think too much about 'things' right or not so right or just plain a little screwy!
Anyway, I take in anything that is homeless or having a bad time of it. My family members and animals. I live in a very, very small house...just enough for two people really but, somehow, some way, people and pets are drawn to this little cottage and KennyRogersLookAlike and I are the innkeepers.
My neighbor's kitty, Gracie, has now adopted us in the middle of taking care of family members, nursing along a 126 year old matronly alpha cat called Miss Indy, and trying to keep this boat afloat in this economy! Gracie has not gone home for a long time and I finally emailed her mom to tell her that she has been visiting us every day. Her mom asked if I wanted to adopt her..she wants her to be happy. I have written about Gracie before...she doesn't like the other cats in the neighborhood...they all spend time in our wildlife backyard bistro alongside of the squirrels, opossums, chipmunks and woodpeckers~they are entranced by her~ she is not a bit enthralled by them. And Miss Indy gets all verklempt when she hisses. KennyRogersLookAlike and I spent an unusual amount of time last night enjoying the warm October weather and swinging on the swing with Gracie between us. After 2 hours~I can't believe we actually sat there that long~she stayed in the swing all night after we went to bed.
It's going to get cold and I am not sure that she will go back home. I don't know why she is attached but we are getting attached too..Another dilemma...Always a dilemma at our house!

Kim,
Nice to meet you! Thanks for coming over and visiting my blog. LadyCat and I have 3 cats. They were hers before we married, but since then, they have warmed up to me. Sounds like you really enjoy your place and have made it your little corner of the world.
Have a great day and we'll catch you later! :) The Bach
