I'm not going to come across all nicey dicey this time. The neighbor's cats are crapping in my flower beds and making a mess. Very annoying. They are not supposed to be roaming away from their master's house but do anyways because their guardians basically don't care. We could have them collected by the city pound but have decided not to make the neighbors mad at us, so we put up with the nonsense.
Same neighbor has pigeons lodging in a nook on their roof. Their flight path is across our back yard which has become a depository for their extra weight. Our patio and patio furniture, the rockery and hubby's model train layout (complete with buildings, animals, people, and vehicles) all get christened from time to time.
Difficult to be positive sometimes.
I am reminded the principle is not 'to be thankful for all circumstances' but rather 'to be thankful in/through all circumstances'.
So, I'm thankful that hubby found me some very kool looking purple rubber gloves to use when I gardening.
As for the pigeons:
Birdie, birdie, in the sky,
I'm so glad that cows don't fly.
