This post doesn’t really have anything to do with saving the earth. It does however contain a small seed of hope.
A wee grey cat recently littered in one of the storage areas around my house. She had three kittens in her kindle (so it isn’t just something you read books on!); adorable squirming fluff balls!
Now comes the sad part: a mongoose found them and ate them. Starting with their heads. It wasn’t a pretty sight. Mother Grey, when she returned, was distraught- obviously.
So where’s the hope- I didn’t think there were mongooses (yes, that's the plural. i checked.) left in my part of Goa. And it looked like this one was pregnant. HOPE!
In memory of the little ones.

I need to up the ante! Two ladies I admire and adore have said that they will read this blog. So I must make it worthy!
How do I do that? Perhaps it is time for some direction, some structure. Hmm. The thing I like best about my blog is that it isn’t rigid. But a little more focus (instead of the nebulous recordings of thoughts) would be good.
Here’s a DIY I learned from one of the above-mentioned ladies:
1. Eat an orange.
2. Keep the peel.
3. Dry the peel.
4. Break it into little bits.
5. Place in a bowl.
Et voila! Your own orange peel pot pourri!
It smells absolutely lovely, and is a much better scent in a closed room than Musty.
It could make a nice gift if you put in a pretty box or in some fancy sheer cloth.
BONUS: You consume part of your daily requirement of fruit every time you make a new batch.
