“Let her play with Lego, for crying out loud!”

I’m sitting here on the couch with the laptop watching Extreme Guide to Parenting, and I just heard El Hub yell that from the other room.

And he’s not even watching the show. He’s just eavesdropping, LOL!

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! It’s caturday! :) Do you know where your husky tabby is?

The one who manages this office is disgruntled and pacing around the house because he wants to go outside. There are these crows who are sort of casing the joint. They’re sitting in the closest tree branches, cawing at the top of their crow lungs, and it’s p*ssing Tabs off. He’s like, “Dammit! Those effing birds!”

Poor kitty…

In other news, it’s giveaway time. Good luck to you. I hope you have a great weekend, too. El Hub and I are talking about going kayaking again on the Russian River tomorrow, but we’ll see. We have a couple other things to do. One of them, actually, involves something special for the cat enthusiasts tomorrow afternoon, so if you have a kitty (or two or 12), be sure to check back tomorrow.

UPDATE 8/24/14: What’s shakin’? I mean, other than the GROUND BENEATH MY FEET. So, this morning at 3:20 a.m. (incidentally, shortly after the witching hour), I’m jostled awake in bed by a 6.0 earthquake. Almost immediately, El Hub says like a drill sergeant, “Get up, up, up! Doorway, now!” We wobble together to the doorway, and then when the quake doesn’t quickly stop, we decide to make our way downstairs, thinking that we should probably get out of the house. We’re almost to the front door when the shaking suddenly stops.

The quake was centered about 10 miles north of us near Napa, so pretty close, but we appear to have made it out unscathed. No visible damage to the house, and everyone is fine…although Tabs was definitely freaked out. He just needed some extra soothing. :) I hope you’re doing well.

*sigh* I would love to be playing in the tropics right now and having my coffee with fresh papaya at a beachside cafe overlooking a bright blue lagoon while we make our plans for the day. Should we hike to that waterfall on the map we got from the concierge, go snorkeling, or just take a chill drive around the island and sightsee? Or do you think we have time to do all three?

Aah! That sounds like heaven to me. :)

Meanwhile, back in Novato… LOL!

Rise and shine, morning glory! It’s going to be a beautiful day, even though most of us aren’t lounging about in the tropics.

What are you up to today? I’m just prepping for my trip tomorrow, doing laundry, packing, charging up my cameras, spending some time with the tabby, stuff like that. Nothing too exciting.

I hope you have a nice weekend lined up. I’ll be around, purr usual. Talk to you soon.

You know that movie The Time Traveler’s Wife?

I watched it again… It was on TV last night.

That movie is just so incredibly sad, isn’t it? But neat. It’s like, here’s what happens when something that could be a gift is actually a curse.

Rachel McAdams sure knows how to pick those heart-wrenching love stories…

Speaking of gifts, happy caturday! Every day we share together, my friend, is a gift, and yes, that’s corny, but I do not care. Not one bit. :)

How’s it going this morning? Did you do anything interesting or fun last night? El Hub and I had dinner at a Japanese place here in town that we hadn’t been to before (eh, it was OK), and then walked down the street and got ice cream at Powell’s Sweet Shoppe, and that store is always fun. I’m serious, if Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory had a satellite corporate office, it would probably look just like that store. They have every kind of candy imaginable, from chocolate-covered bacon necklaces to giant rainbow lollipops to caramel peanut clusters the size of small watermelons.

And after that we watched that movie at home. Pretty quiet evening.

Your nephew seems to be in good spirits this morning. Right after I woke up I pet him for a while, so he met his quota for lurvies, and as you know, his moods are pretty much entirely dependent on food and love. Like mommy like tabby.

Well, that’s about it for me. I’m gonna go make my first cup of coffee now and something to eat (Eggo waffles, perhaps?). Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon. :)

Urban Decay at Sephora

They say, “It works a lot of your hip flexors,” when you rent a kayak. “Down here, around here.” But they don’t really tell you about your arms, your back, your shoulders, your thighs, your butt or your fingers (from holding the paddle).

Yeah…little sore this morning, LOL!

That’s what four hours in a kayak will do to you when you’re no longer the, uh…springiest of chickens.

But it was worth it. I had a blast.

In other news, OMG! Kittens hasn’t been too kind to me yet. I lost another $2 last night (it’s a penny slot), which is better than losing more than that, I guess. I’m going to give it one last try today… I’m not the biggest gambler in the world, so I mostly stick to penny slots. I think the grand prize mega jackpot on OMG! Kittens is something like 4000 pennies…but I’d prefer a kitten jackpot. :)

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re up to, and good luck in the giveaway. Tabs has been texting me off and on throughout the trip. He and his petsitter played Dungeons & Dragons last night. Tabs is a ninth level paladin named Chevalier… I guess he fought some hell hounds.
