Adventures? You decide.....
I had a think today about what in the world I could write about tonight that could possibly equal yesterday's adventure, and was not at all sure I could come up with anything. I mean, yesterday was truly an adventure of some magnitude.
But then, isn't every day?
Let's try a few things....
Woke up. Tea. Not much there.
Merry Housekeeper came over to help me paint my porch (ok, to be truthful, it ought to read paint my porch with absolutely no help from his painting challenged girl) and I discovered that not only had she done that, but also the railings of the deck outside, based on the fact that I told her a year ago I wanted it white, and had never got around to telling her I changed my mind.
Cool thing tho, I was right the first time, it looks great! (which had I had the painting of it, it would not have.) Interesting, but not an adventure.
Did some assistanting. Goes like this: No, no, no he can't, well maybe, Is it on a tropical island and do I get to go, no, soon promise, and NO!
Hardly worth a blog.
Planted some plants. If they grow, we shall no doubt later rejoice. If not, we can mourn together.
Music? Well, Paul and I are excited about this live cd thing, and have decided to learn some new songs, which we will share with each other for the first time as we record Live on Stage. This will be blog worthy in a couple of weeks, I have no doubt.
Took Dog for a couple of walks. Did NOT go near the evil bees. I had to Fed-ex Boss his Tux for BEA. One sends it in a suitcase, oddly enough, as that is what they are meant for. When I brought it down, poor Cabal began to whimper, and would NOT leave my side. To him, it means Someone is going away. I cheered him up riding my bike around, throwing toys, and some agility things. Wonderful fun, but I am certainly not going to take up your valuable time writing an entire paragraph which could be entitled "What I did With the Dog Today" I mean, really...
Read another couple of chapters of Sense and Sensibility. Love the prose, but good Gods, don't these people ever DO anything???
The Cat Wheel has arrived and Mim is the Cat Wheel Demon. She has learned when she runs too fast and spins around to the top, to jump off, rather than go crashing down, as she did at first. When I get video, THIS will be fun.
Aha. I have it. Adventure City.
I had heard that Bengals will walk on leashes. Seeing as how I have nothing going on right now, and so very much spare time, I thought, why not get a couple diamond studded collers and harnesses, and take the little fiends for a walk!
(File under "Seemed like a Good Idea at the time")
Actually, it wasn't so bad, Madame Mim had a blast, running all over, chasing nothing, and exploring everything. I enlisted the help of my ever patient neighbours, and Makela took Mim and I had the, "well it MIGHT be cool, but I am not committing myself" Venus.
For a small town we drew some really nice crowds. I may yet get famous. If only as The Crazy Lady who Takes Her Cats For Walks. And my camera battery charger will be here tomorrow! Pictures to come!!!! Promise! (I learned tonight you cannot take a photo of your cat on the cat wheel with your laptop. Nope.)
I think we will do this nightly. It is good to have a social life.
Love and Leashes,
