Monsoon season is fast approaching and we got our first taste of it tonight watching a beautiful Tucson sunset followed by a good rain and some thunder and lightning. It was fun trying to capture a picture of the lightning, but challenging-so sporadic, you almost have to be psychic to know when and where to snap your photo. Hopefully in the upcoming weeks, we’ll get some more good practice.
Chris is holding onto Paws with one hand which is rather a challenge-Paws is a big boy, around 22 pounds last time we weighed him. The bathroom scale was one of the many items we sold last October before setting off on our van travels across the country. Some things are not missed! Paws is a cat, by the way, not a dog.
We’re on the lookout for a good cat sitter right now, so we can go do some more traveling. During the colder months we could take them with us most places, but with 100 plus degree weather, that is no longer an option. It’s bizarre though, ever since we stopped traveling, they’ve been yowling a lot-especially at night when we’re trying to sleep. I think I need to get more Feliway-the synthesized cat pheremones that are supposed to be calming.
You wouldn’t think so, but the cats actually really liked the traveling lifestyle-I suppose because the van was kind of cozy with lots of great hiding places and comfortable perches-kind of a kitty palace in a way-just the right size to make them feel like kings. Plus there were windows all around, so they were getting the royal view to all kinds of interesting activity. The apartment is probably a bit dull by way of comparison. Ever since we took Paw’s ratty old collar off him, it’s become his favorite toy. He’ll carry it around in his mouth like a dog bone and yowl until we throw it for him.
We’ve been adding more movie reviews, and Chris has been working on some new guitar lessons and is anxious for some feedback. He was also playing some fun “Chinese” music to go along with my “virtual trip to China” entry. He doesn’t think it’s very good, but I like it and I’m trying to get him to put it up.
Oh, I got my 19 momme silk duvet cover and silk filled comforter-it is dreamy to say the least, so soft and smooth. Wish I could afford to give one to everyone as a Christmas gift.
