Here I Come to Save the Day....Mighty Mouse





This morning, after I fed the cats, after I cleaned their litter boxes, after I fed Monk, our stray cat...but before having breakfast...I sat at the computer to post my blog piece.  But something was wrong.  I had worked quite some time on this piece...mainly getting pictures and making collages and checking on facts...I just had a bit of editing to do and my post would be up before 8:00 am.  But something was wrong.  Where were the pictures?  There was one...but the others were gone.  Less than half of my blog piece was staring at me.  No matter how often I scrolled down...the cursor stopped at the same place.

I checked my piece from yesterday about Maxine and watching commercials.  (I don't know why, but something told me to check it.)  And there was the first half of today's writing attached to yesterday's!  By this time I had said many choice words....I imagine Rae would have been in shock at the colorful language coming from my mouth.  There was no way I would be able to rewrite and post today.  I had only 45 minutes before we had to leave for a memorial service.  I still had not figured out what I was wearing.  And, of course, Molly our new kitty wanted to help me by sitting in front of the computer.

So...taking a deep breath...my eyes again landed on the Animal Cards....ah yes....this would be a good time to pick a card for today.  I gently tossed Molly out of my office, shuffled the cards, and chose one.  Who would appear to help me today?

Mouse
 
Focus, pay attention
 
Handle one thing at a time
 
Honor your perceptions
 
 
Well, I guess that does not take much interpretation, does it?  but do I have any pictures of mice?  The only ones I remember taking were at the Imperial War Museum in London, England.  I was taking pictures of birds outside, and noticed movement in a bush.  The little critters were moving so fast it was difficult to tell if they were mice or voles.  But for now...I will say they were mice...because I need a picture and I am running out of time.
 

 
Here is a few seconds video of the mice running through the bush.

Focus...I must focus...focus...I must focus......

  1. I don't know, would Rae be shocked or proud of what you said. I have said many times, ya just gotta love technology. On a positive note, you now have another post just waiting to be published. It really is nice that Molly wanted to help. I sometimes get that kind of help also. :-)

  2. Focus, pay attention - wise words for sure. I'm just going to have to say, I think I might have been a bit creeped out by the mice in the shrubs. Ugh!

  3. It seems like it is getting harder and harder to focus and pay attention. Writing forces me to do so. Your title made me smile and think about MIghty Mouse....that ages me, doesn't it?

  5. Love the stream of consciousness about this post...how you take us inside your head. The repetition works so well.

    Glad you figured out the problem.

  7. Hmmm. Perhaps Molly wanted pictures of mice today instead of your original post...was this a setup?
