I'll miss their cute faces. But guess what? Helo, Al's beautiful cat is coming to stay with us for at least a few months. He doesn't need the stress of moving to Virginia Beach with Al. Beatles needs a buddy. Rosalyn has been a trooper. She is tired of Beatles tackling her though. Her old bones need a rest.
Helo will take a while to fit in; cats just take a little time. I am so excited for him to live here. He has the most amazing eyes. He is part Siamese/part something else...probably grey tabby. He needs to lose some weight, so playing with Bea will be perfect. Helo is only 2. Bea is now 1.
Fireman and I want to get to the Lake Michigan Beach soon. I drove by and snapped a picture the other day. The water stays very cold until about August. We want to take the kayaks out. Hopefully within a week we can do this.
Here is short list of things I WONT do this summer:
Go to any indoor concert. I simply cannot do this when we have nice weather. We have so many months of awful grey cold weather here in Chicago, I have to stay out in the summer. -
Buy ice cream from a truck. I have so many good ice cream choices around me. I live a block from a soft serve ice cream stand, 3 blocks from Oberweiss Dairy and a mile from a Ben and Jerry's. You cannot beat Ben and Jerry's if you ask me-
Wear a bikini. -
Plant tomatoes. Taking this year off. My watering to harvesting ratio was much too low last year to warrant them this year. I can go to the farmers market on any Saturday from July 1 on and get great tomatoes. ( I will be happy to take any of yours) -
Have a garage sale. Most of my stuff is FROM garage sales.....and I tend to bring one thing into my house and get rid of one thing at the same time. it keeps the STUFF down. :)
Use a spray tan/seek a tan out. I'm too old for tanning. The spray stuff must cause cancer or three heads or something. I LOVE to look tan. Alas, it is winter here more than anything else and my winter skin will look much better if I don't' tan.
I won't stop planting because spring is over. I must keep the garden interest up. I always plant mums in August, but I need to plant something now in July....any ideas?
