I would ask myself how did this happen but I know it was just a question of odds. You visit the shelter enough to look at the cats and eventually you end up surrendering your credit card instead of the dollars five and leave with a big card board box full of cat and a goody bag with kitty toys and fish treats.
Head to the pet store where you surrender your credit card again to cover the sequined collar, fancy litter box, kitten food, litter and plenty of cat toys. Throw in a new scratching post as a consolation prize for your existing cat. Luckily you still have that five dollar bill in your pocket.
And so Cleopatra (Cleo almost named Pineapple) Moffitt joins a long line of cats who have found their way into our home and lives.
I feel our the first day of summer was like living in a Visa commercial. Price of adopting a kitten and supplies $ 245.00. Look on six year old daughters face when you tell her she can adopt a kitten -priceless.

Lucky too perhaps, the Ferris Wheel was not working. I had bought the tickets and was all ready to brave the heights of the miniature wheel, but when we got on line, workers were working on the cables. It only took a few minutes of watching these low tech adjustments to steer the little over to the bouncy castles. I'll face my fears another day when the delicate workings are not laid bare.
Happily, bouncy castles and little for engines still pass muster with a six year old and there was a little money left over for an eggplant sandwich.

I'm aching for warm weather but not looking forward to the wardrobe transition. I suspect I have nothing to wear. I also hate when I find myself in warm weather clothing and the weather doesn't cooperate. I may just wear my down coat right into summer. At this rate I may need to.

I'm hoping it won't be that last minute and that we can make a nice craft activity together soi'm looking around for ideas. The Paas dye has already been purchased and we will undoubtly do some basic colors but I'd like to get a little adventurous. Here's one cool idea from pinterest. Chalkboard eggs. While the color isn't too Springy, there's plenty of opportunity to express oneself and re-express oneself. Anyone have a chalkboard eraser?

Goodbye white, hello green. Green - there are hints of it surfacing in the muddy brown landscape. The tips of the daffodils coming up, the moss that is mixed in with dead grass in the shady spots of the lawn, are the first touches. An explosion is on the way and I personally can't wait to for it to be wall to wall green outside.
