Good Morning World!

Well, not exactly morning, but that's ok. Still not back to normal with sleep cycling. But it will get there. Poor Ivy is having a heck of a time as well. I am unsure how most read this blog, but I want to point out a lovely new addition on your right. I realized today I need a list for my thankfulness so as to not repeat my self. So if you are interested in my daily thankfulness, check it out.
Today is a cleaning day. We have been home a week & I still need to clean. It's icky. have just been so off kilter it has been easy to ignore. That is over. I am still out of it, but the house is overdo for a scrub down. The hard thing is though I am soooo tired. As is Peanut. Neither one of us slept well last night (she says she went to sleep at 1:30, Me - 4:55 am is last time I looked at clock.) woke at a bit before 9 today, so trying to stay up so as to not repeat the issue tonight. Ugh.
We are cat-sitting for friends while they are on leave & the animals seem to have finally adapted to each other. Now we have 4 crazy animals tearing around. too fun.
Well, I can't make sense of my thoughts & seem to be rambling, So I will leave you with a thought...

Penguin Burial

Penguins

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica - where do they go ?

Wonder no more!!!

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintaining a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

"Freeze a jolly good fellow"

"Freeze a jolly good fellow."

"Then they kick him in the ice hole."

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?

Thank you to GG for originally telling me this & Mtnguy on Forrest River Forums where I found it printed.
