Red, white and blue ice cream--YUM!

It's July 1st. It's supposed to be 90 degrees here in the Big Apple today. Back home in Texas it's probably 90 degrees for the low. I never thought that I'd miss that place as much as I do. I remember growing up there and not being able to have 4th of July bbq's because it was so hot outside your cold potato salad turned hot before you could even eat it. We were a military family so we usually went to the base to watch fireworks. I think we must have stopped for ice cream at some point because I remember my favorite was this concoction of red, white and blue ice cream. No idea what was in it, but it was really yummy. I love being on vacation in July but it really is hot in the city. I've got some stuff to do today, inside, so I will be fine. But I do hope to get out into this heat at some point soon. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, and whatever temperature it is, I hope you enjoy this 1st day of July..sans ice cream of course. Peace xo

Welcome to Cat Central

I was ambushed. Unarmed. Two weeks ago my boyfriend told me he was going downstairs to the lobby of our building to meet up with his friend from work who was bringing him something. I had no idea what he meant, nor did I think twice about it because my boyfriend doesn't do or sell drugs so what did I care. When he returned after about an hour he rang the doorbell and shoved this little orange ball of fur in my face. "Can we keep him honey? Can we?" See, ambushed. I already have one cat. He's 14 years old and he just got diagnosed with Feline Kidney Disease, it's a common malady in older cats our vet said, but with the proper care and diet he could live another 5 years, whew. But to ease the pain of what he may go through in the coming years including his impending mortality my boyfriend got me this kitten. That was him helping. At first I was insistent that we couldn't keep him and that my boyfriend wasn't helping. Now, 2 weeks later, I'm in love. But I'm also 3 cats away from being the cat lady. I'll have to make sure not to get upset in front of him about something for a very long time or I'll be in moo-moos with cats climbing all over me sooner than I want to be. :) Peace and kitty cat love!

It's a new day, it's a new dawn....for me. (Insert the jazzy melody here)

Life has a funny way of circling back around to things, times and places that you'd almost forgotten. Last night I was sitting on my couch reading, (I'm really into the YA books as of late, Divergent series etc, just in case you were curious) and I remembered the smell of a lotion that my mother used most of her life, it smelled like roses and it was pink and came in this pink bottle from the drugstore that had a pretty rose on the front. I sat there reading and I could literally smell this lotion wafting in front of my nose at that very minute. Today I'm writing a post in a blog that I'd almost forgotten about...just like my mom's rose lotion, I missed this. I missed writing, and filling you in on my thoughts, desires, dreams. I'm not sure that anyone besides myself actually reads these posts but I missed writing them nonetheless. What do you miss? What are you remembering right now that you could circle back around to? Whatever it is, I hope you do. Enjoy your day! PS I found the lotion!
