Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s caturday! :)

Today’s forecast calls for patchy morning fog, clearing up to sunshine and temps in the low-to-mid 70s by the afternoon. Your nephew is currently perched behind me on the living room windowsill.

Actually, he hasn’t gone outside yet this morning because I’ve only been up for a few minutes, and you know his routine… He’s gotta inspect the hillside first thing every morning before the neighborhood hustle and bustle gets going, so he’s not pleased about this current deviation from his regular schedule.

What did do last night? Did you do anything fun? We just went to a movie down the street. Danny Collins, Starring Al Pacino and Annette Bening? It’s the old aging rocker motif, but I always like those. It’s interesting to see how famous people interact with the world. It seems like a very lonely life sometimes, even with all the perks.

Today I’m just staying around the house, maybe going to Blue Barn to get a salad for lunch, but I have to — or at least I really want to — finish setting up my deck garden. We’re making this the Summer of the Tomato, so we have to clean out the old pots from last year, top off the pots with fresh potting mix, and get some plants started. El Hub brought home seven huge bags of potting mix the other day, so it’s time to get a little dirty. :)

Other than that, I don’t know… Maybe planning for one or two trips. We’ve been thinking about going to Tahoe again, and maybe the Big Island. Maybe a quick trip to Portland, too, because we have some friends up there.

Gotta take the time to actually make the plans, though; otherwise, it’ll be October before we know it.

I hope you have a great weekend, my friend. Good luck in the giveaway, and I’ll talk to you soon.

Good morning, friend! Happy Saturday (or caturday, if you’re a cat lady). :)

I’m still a little sleepy… I’m trying to wake up with a cup of green tea, though, because I need to run, aka “get my sweat on,” and then El Hub and I are going to take his parents out sightseeing (they’re visiting this weekend).

What are you up to today? Doing anything fun? We’re probably just gonna go to Fairfax, which is a cute little town in West Marin County, and then maybe up to Napa if everyone’s up for the drive.

Anywho, you know the drill. It’s Saturday, which means it’s giveaway time. To enter to win a $50 Sephora e-card, all you have to do is leave a quick comment down below.

Good luck, and may you see fuzzy blue-eyed kittens today.

Tabs and I have diametrically opposed opinions of Saturday mornings. While I love them, because I usually sleep in an hour or two later than I do on M-F, he does not, because normally during the workweek, practically the first thing I do, which is usually around 6:45 a.m., is take him outside for a quick walk on his leash.

Buuut, on Saturdays, since I like to sleep in, I get up a little later than usual, and his little kitty brain knows it. By 6:48 or so he starts mewling, LOUDLY, and pacing the hallway by the front door downstairs (I can hear his tabby claws clicking on the tiles from my bed upstairs) when I don’t get up at the regular time.

Right now as I’m typing this, he’s anxiously doing circuits around the kitchen and meowing nonstop.

“TABBY GOTS TO GO OUTSIDE!!!”

So that’s what I’m about to do.

Happy pre-Easter morning, my friend! :) I hope you have a great holiday. El Hub, Tabs and I are just taking it easy around here today, but tomorrow we’ll drive out to the East Bay for brunch with the fam.

Yes, I said brunch, and you know how much I love love love brunch.

Good luck to you in the giveaway, and have a wonderful, perfect Easter weekend.

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday. :) I hope you don’t mind, but I’m keeping this short. I desperately need to get some food and tea in my system, STAT.

That movie we rented last night, Top Five? Good movie. I thought Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock were great. The pacing reminds me a little of Hitch, like that kind of dating movie in a big city, but it has more layers. There’s more going on with the characters. More backstory, and more of character journey, so it’s not quite as slap-sticky. It’s still funny, though. But serious too. Tabs also liked it.

I hope you have something fun lined up this weekend. I have no idea what I’m doing today. Honestly, I haven’t gotten that far. I’m still all about that food and tea.

Good luck in the giveaway, and I’ll talk to you soon…after I’m fully caffeinated.

Oh, my gosh! I loved the new Cinderella.

El Hub and I went to see it last night, and you know, I needed some of that Disney magic this week. They’ve got the whole fairytale thing DOWN. Even though it’s the same story you already know and love, that didn’t take away from it at all. Doesn’t matter how old you are, if you need a pick-me-up of goodness and light straight to your heart, go see it.

Get this: El Hub even got teary. :) Ha!

In other news, your nephew is purr-turbed because we haven’t gone outside yet for our walk. I slept in a little and I’m running behind, but if I don’t take him, he will flip out. He’s already pacing around the house meowing.

What are you up to this weekend? I hope you’re doing something fun. We’re meeting some friends for dinner at a Thai place nearby tonight, and I’m really looking forward to that.

Best of luck in the giveaway, my friend. I’ll talk to you soon.
