The topic: This is a beautiful Southern California day

----------------------------------------------

Days like today are the reason people move here.

Right now, a little after noon, the outside temperature is 78.3° in the shade. There’s a small breeze, stirring up the air.  The leaves are rustling in the liquid amber tree (where the leaves came from in the picture of Bobby below). 

Listening to Shakatak right now, the song “Lovely Day” from their Magic CD and it certainly is. 

I want to grab a glass of wine, a book and go sit in the sun and read.

Or maybe take my little bitty kite outside and fly it. 

I love days like this.

I'm listening to Rod Stewart's Maggie May

The topic: The new guys

----------------------------------------------

I snapped a couple of shots of Bobby and Pancho last week.   They’re both doing very well, fitting in nicely.

Pancho, looking regal.  He’s wearing his winter coat (which he most certainly doesn’t need today).  He goes through phases of wanting lots of attention and just wanting to do stuff by himself.  But he’s good about being picked up and smurgled and he knows his name, comes out of hiding when I need to see him.

And here’s Bobby, you’d never know he hadn’t lived here all of his life.  He’s finally settled in. There’s the occasional spat with other kitties, but he’s usually pretty good about not starting things (and he’s the one who starts things).  He thinks he found something under the leaves in this picture. As far as I know, he never did find anything.

The topic: The parrots

----------------------------------------------

If anybody who reads this goes over to my other site, lisaviolet's family album, where I keep my photos and videos, you might have seen the one with the birds flying over. I think it’s also posted here somewhere.

Well, last week I was able to get better pictures of the bird, since they were in a tree that had a lot of sunlight hitting it.  And here they are!

The topic: Yay!

----------------------------------------------

I noticed this morning when I got up that it was light outside, lighter than it’s been in weeks. 

Which means we can start walking again!

Yay!  I’m so excited!  I know that sounds silly, because, after all, we do have the most awesome Wii, but it’s hard for me to get on the Wii Fit, even though it’s lots of fun. Once I’m on it, I’m okay, but there’s always something I have to do, like read the paper, surf the net, watch something I recorded last night….you know, that fat assed, couch potato stuff that I do so well.

Once I’m walking again, oddly enough, it won’t be hard for me at all to get on the Wii Fit. 

It’s the getting started that’s hard.
