Suffering from bipolar disorder...I catch myself having ups and downs and it is a roller coaster of a ride. I lived in Los Angeles for 2 years and realized it did not help with my mental health.
The yak is so sweet, and decided it was time to leave and pursue new adventures and be closer to family. Moving back to Northern California in Amador County. What an amazing place. Why did we not do this sooner. YEARS, agooooooo! I absolutely love living out here. Yes, my drive commute can be horrendous. I admit it is worth sitting in traffic for. It is quiet and people are friendly. I also got myself a new buddy. My little girl, Lucy. She is a god send.
Everyday I wake up, and I see her face. She reminds me that she needs me to open that front door so she could go out for her walks. She reminds me, that I need to go outside for some fresh air and enjoy the beauty that is outside my very front door!
Because, I am going outside, I now do NOT have time to sew. I do have passion for sewing still. But, I would much rather be outside spending every moment I have with this little girl that needs me to be there for her. She has become my little child. Working on teaching her obedience or words so she could understand what exactly I am looking for. I know, you ask...what about the cats? I absolutely loooove and adore the kitties but they are so much more independent. They do not need me, as much Lucy does. I do try to spend time with the kitties. Currently working on Miu and her weight loss. She needs to lose some. She became a little heavy living in LA.
She seems to enjoy it a lot out here. Better for the mind and soul. Plus she gets to spend some time outdoors for some supervised lounging. The square footage in our new home is a lot bigger and she gets to be alone when she pleases. She no longer screams at Chuck.
Chuck. Oh dear Chuck. She on the other hand changed a bit. She has become more of a cat. She spends most of her time upstairs basking in the sun in the hall window. She will come downstairs during the evening for her dinner and cuddle time with me on the couch.
She is slowly exploring what the outdoors has in store for her. Slowly coming out of her shell.
I am blessed for the yak, my new family, my kitties and my little Lucy.
