Funeral and a jumping cat

July 6, 2013

Journal, Kittens

This morning I attended a funeral of a dear elderly lady who used to volunteer at the Center years ago. I wish I had more profound things to say, but in a nutshell: I was impressed with her life and how much she professed her faith to others. It was nice and our pastor did a wonderful job weaving personal stories in with a powerful sermon.

Again, that’s the nutshell version. Sometime I might have to write out my thoughts for my own funeral. That will make for a fun post, huh?

The rest of the day was spent in kind of a putzy way – a wonderfully putzy way! Lloyd did some wireless Internet planning at St. John, and I got a few areas here at home cleaned up, but there was also napping, reading outside and drinking ice tea, and playing with cats. Yes, all I have to show from today is Emmy jumping at a bug on the noisy plastic. The mighty jump is at the very end.

Ahhhhh….. A good Saturday.

    I haven’t written notes about my funeral arrangements either. And I don’t have a will. Or a living will. Sheesh! Maybe we could have a party where everyone works on their end-of-life plans. We could have a lawyer there or notary or whatever makes wills official. We could also have cake. Mmm… cake…

      That is an excellent idea! I’m in. As long as there is cake! And games.

      And I can’t believe that Wally! Is he part kangeroo?
