No TV news today, just a couple of very cute animal videos

Hi friends — it’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a week for yours truly.

In happy news, my husband and I celebrated a pretty big milestone in our relationship; in less happy news, I suffered a sad loss when two friends passed away in a tragic plane crash. And I have to be honest, my head isn’t on quite straight right now. So I’m taking a mental health day weekend starting immediately.

But I never leave you empty-handed here at Foolish Watcher, and on that note I bring you TWO adorable animals, because adorable animals are about the only thing that are helping me get through this week.

Adorable animal #1: This squirrel eating a piece of avocado while wearing an avocado helmet.

And adorable animal #2, which is technically three adorable animals: This Ridgeback playing with a pair of kittens that she rescued.

I’ll be back soon, hopefully with the most recent Game of Thrones recap ahead of the new episode, but no promises. Like I said, it’s been a hell of a week.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself. We’ll be here waiting for your snarkiness when you’re ready.

  2. Congrats on your milestone and sending you love and aloha from Hawaii for your loss.
    These words always bring me comfort. They are from my dad’s favourite poet and we read them during his memorial. I hope bring you a little comfort as well.

    On Joy and Sorrow
    Kahlil Gibran

    Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
    And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
    And how else can it be?
    The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
    Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven?
    And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
    When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
    When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

    Some of you say, “Joy is greater thar sorrow,” and others say, “Nay, sorrow is the greater.”
    But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
    Together they come, and when one sits, alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

    Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.
    Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
    When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.
