feeding frenzy

(mijo at feeding frenzy)

People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.

When Mijo and HoneyBoy came to live with us, they were sick. We had to make sure they ate enough and stayed hydrated. We started mixing baby food with water, hand feeding them with a syringe. They loved it. As soon as they saw the syringes in our hands, they came running...straight up the leg and body to get to the food. Until a couple days ago, they both still loved it.

HoneyBoy, for some reason, decided he liked his baby food and acidophilus in a bowl--thank you very much. Mijo, however, still loves the syringe--and what Mijo wants, Mijo gets.

My computer is still in the shop. The DC power jack is bad. I correctly diagnosed the problem. They didn't have one in stock for my machine so it will be another 3 to 5 business days before I get it back.

Saturday is a big day. Lots of chores to do and yard work to accomplish. Then in the afternoon and evening we are having company. It has been way too long since we have had energy to entertain.

What's on tap for your Saturday?

Deeply honored to be that company.

Deeply. Honored.
