roses & cats, mostly

Thursday, April 25, 2013

apricot, pinkish, orangey coral like miniature roses / the chicelet BleetNessie / lunch / more tiny worlds / coralish / who's the best cat ever / a little lichen love / orange-ish roses at dusk / Oliver in Virgil's pad / & a relocated Virgil / breakfast / our feral boy/ and more beautiful roses

Don't try to win over the haters; 
you are not a jackass whisperer.

Brené Brown from Daring Greatly
(a most fantastic freakin' book)

thanks Brené ... & over n' over n' over again ... thanks


  1. your quote for today made me laugh out loud. and i'm loving the gently lovely apricot roses.

  2. 9th photo down.... those paws..... x

  3. Hi Julie - it's so true though isn't it. How much time of my life have I wasted trying to win over "the haters" ... way, way too much. Brené makes me laugh out loud. She's so amazingly down to earth & real for such a smarty pants.

    and yes Rach the sweet black padded paws ... best cat ever xoxo to you both Susan + gang

  4. I gotta remember that "I'm not a jackass whisperer". Love it !

  5. If I were you I would reuse that perfect photo of "raven on screen with Oliver" .... in photoshop make Oliver a little badge to wear that says "I {Heart --put little red heart in } Ravens" switch the photo around so the raven is looking at him!! What a crack up indeed!
    Wish we had roses blooming here...soon.

  6. Do the haters ever want to be won over? Usually not.Has always seemed a one-way street to me - the jackasses are usually too loud to hear a whisper anyway - great quote! - roses and cats are finer company, softer too!

  7. Got to love those cats and roses ;) Your cats are gorgeous..
