Today is a Wonderful Day!

So once again my super twin powers did not activate(probably because I don't have a twin, since I know-I just know-I have super powers!) which left me with an extremely sore back-probably whiplash related as it is a pain that runs parallel to my spine, all the way down to the tip of my tail bone. But I am not here today to whine about pain and life's toils and troubles.

We have exciting things coming up in the months ahead!

Very exciting!

The Kid and I are off to Florida again next Monday for close to 3 weeks so that B can finish out her job on the horse farm. That has the potential to be great because I will be close to my cousin(of the original They fame), a FB/blog friend, and of course the rest of my sisters-all just a couple of hours away! My other sister and her kids are coming up to the Farm too!

When we finally get home I will be making another trip up to Wandering Girl's place to pick up my new.....KITTEN!!!!!!! I am so excited. She rescued 3 little kittens who had lost their mother in a tragic road crossing and posted pictures of these tiny little things and there he was! This little orange kitten I just knew without saying was a boy, that he was for me and that his name is Blue. I think he's polydactyl too!

(Did I ever tell you how I was plotting to steal a Hemingway cat one time when we were down in Key West but this morally upstanding guy I'm married to put the brakes on my "evil" plan?)

They were only 3 weeks old at the time of rescue so WG has spent many hours taking care of these little precious fluffballs and teaching them how wonderful people can be and I am so grateful I can't express how much!

Last but certainly not least we have a Foreign Exchange student coming here the first of September! She is from France and will probably be staying with us the entire school year. I am really looking forward to this opportunity for all of us. Wouldn't it be nice if B was able to go and stay with M and her family next summer? What an exciting prospect! I do hope the girls get along! Fingers duly crossed.

That is it for now.

Whoops! I need to go change clothes and get ready to pick up the Kid. We have a date to go fly a kite this afternoon!

I have wanted a cat with thumbs for a long time, maybe the next one.

Brook said...

Well, I think his brother who is also polydactyl may still be available-no harm asking(if you can handle 2 at once). How is Rose's "new" kitten doing? He isn't really a kitten anymore is he?

Nej said...

A new 4 legged family member...how awesome!!!!!

So, while you're gone for three weeks, you have to remember to take your laptop cable!!! :-) (hehe)

Brook said...

Nej-you know it! Seriously 'cause there at the farm there is NOTHING to do except watch flies and count ants. Yup.

PorkStar said...

FL for 3 weeks, that sounds awesome!

Nej said...

Counting ants is a talent. They keep moving around and won't stand still. :-)

Amy said...

Lets seriously plan something Brook.
Let me know..:o)What part of Fl?
We should plan to go to Mexico/ St joe beach -I can reserve my mom's house.Or meet in Tallahassee...or SOMETHING.

Brook said...

Porkstar-there are parts that will be wonderful.
Nej-you have to squint and if that doesn't work you just mash 'em and they quit moving.
Amy-I will be in Bell(again)-your town is only a short drive so we can definitely get together. B doesn't have time off(impossible when working with horses)so no Mexico Beach I'm afraid(though it sounds wonderful to me!)The whole reason I'm going is because my mom will be gone to Pittsburgh then and well, some adult supervision is required.

Your Boy Blue is definitely polydactyl... or as I like to call it, "space-pawed". His feet are huge! Almost like baseball mitts, really. Little Visa is still looking for his forever home. He is a sweetie pie. Huff Daddy, if you're interested let me know... I can arrange delivery!

WanderingGirl said...

Oh yeah, and Visa is definitely a boy and definitely has thumbs too.

Huff Daddy said...

Thanks for the offer Brook/WG but we've got our hands full with Rose's new kitty right now.

Brook said...

WG-It is destiny! I don't know any cat people but I'll keep an ear out.
HD-No worries! Visa is pretty cute though =)
