Cats & Meowskies
Cats sleep a lot, don’t they?
I read somewhere they sleep for like 17-18 hours a day.
What could possibly be going on that they need that amount of sleep to function?
Oh if karma lets me have my way please can I come back as my Tatiana?
This is going to be a short post. I am exhausted but I ain’t no quitter so today I’m linking my love of quotes/idioms/proverbs with zee challenge.
“Let sleeping dogs lie”
Sounds like someone had a bit of forethought and common sense when this idiom sprung up.
I think it actually goes back to Biblical times..
That being said, the Book of Proverbs (26:17) says:
He that passes by, and meddles with strife belonging not to him, is like one that takes a dog by the ears.
In other words, the saying “let sleeping dogs lie” has its roots in the Christian Bible.
So what does it mean?
I thought it meant to let things go- don’t hold on to any negative shit.
Turns out I am half right and half wrong.
What it really means is don’t stick your oar in.
Don’t rattle the coffin when there is no need to.
In other words,
Don’t be a fucking trouble maker or all you will get from me and others is a spoon for Christmas.
Leave the pot alone.
I’m going to catch me an early night *yawning*
So want to read some of my books. I have the bed all to myself tonight.
Well, for a bit. My better half is off to his mates house to celebrate a quiet birthday.
So I am going to take the chance to kick back. It’s been a busy day.
I think our earthling friends give brilliant advice. Us humans need to pay more attention.
so -thanks for the tip, Tatiana.
I shall go out of my way to re-enact this wise, firstborn child of mines “chill philosophy “the best that I can.
can’t let my earthling friends down. Not now when I am needed most. 😀
kind of gone- on her way to the chill zone
See you next week
