Some of my readers may know that I have three cats: Fermata, Kit, and Chopin. The oldest is Fermata and he very much enjoys his morning job of waking the “food lady.” When this video was sent to my daughter by a friend from church choir, I couldn’t believe how accurate it was (aside from the baseball bat, of course). If you have a cat alarm clock, take a peek at this short piece from YouTube. I expect you will be nodding your head in recognition.

Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
