Bat Bites

Prepping for the Halloween luncheon at of the many cat people at work, Cat in the hat "Nancy" in the kitchen.
Bat bites made by friend Debra!
Two more days til the trip.....the countdown is on. Madness has subsided and tonight will find me packing, and maybe finding time to post several pix from the party I attended yesterday, it was a perfectly timed event, as I had a very painful grief meltdown beginning Friday night and lasting through yesterday morning. Unable to stop sobbing, my head so painful I could hardly see, I sat on the sofa at LM's and he calmly let me get it all out. Ms G was very unnerved by my crying and she used all sorts of antics to cheer me. Blowing leaves outside the door, had her skittering across the kitchen and hopping around, in true Halloween cat style, her back arched and tail blown up. There were smiles through the tears. The most profound grief in this process to date. I would not have thought it could get worse. I was so shaky yesterday that I feared I could not go through with the plan to attend the dinner party at friend, Sue's, but I forced myself and by the time it was over, I was energized, renewed with strength and feeling the joy rise up again. My spirit is strong and much good came out of the darkness.
On to work......wishing everyone a happy day and sunny skies!

The bat bites are yummy! You looked great, so happy and then tears. I'm going to have to go back and read where you've blogged the root of these tears. However, it is positive that you're letting whatever it is Out. Every time a story is told it loses a bit of its power. (I've had problems leaving comments because I had to unclick something to allow your feed. A computer genius I'm not!) Will ck back later, hoping you had a fabulous time.
