*sigh* it STINKS being back
, I was just getting unwound....I loathe being home more than ever but I guess I cant do anything about it - I did learn that I am a product of my enviroment and alot of the negative parts of me are from HERE
.......also I never slept so sound in years and I think that affects me as well as I live on a main highway and it is ALWAYS major noisy......there it was just so quiet that I was in awe......even the dogs were behaved better.....
anyway let me tell you that nothing ever goes without an event so I must start my story with Wed evening......
hubby hears a kitten out side - a big storm was due anytime,......we go outside in the pitch dark and try and find the kitten- no luck....I prayed that it would either go away or surface
as it was driving me crazy meowing under my bedroom window
- hubby goes out again and we decide that the cat is stuck inside a blue van that is parked out front- so I left her a can of dog food....(all I had) and did not hear anything til 3:30 AM.....the storm had come and it was pretty bad out. I fell back asleep and we heard nothing the next morning..until of course RIGHT BEFORE we leave! I mean the dogs were in the car etc etc and I write a note for the business downstairs whose van it was and told them, just then they pull up and there we are opening the van hood and lo and behold sittin on the radiator is the itty bitty kitty....she sees the men and runs way back into the engine.....I of course start to stick my nose in the whole affair all the while reminding hubby that the car is running and the dogs are waiting
Kitty would not come out so like a nut I start meowing and the cat got all BIG eyed and started coming forward...so I stuck a finger out and kitty ran away back into the engine again...........long story short I am meowing like a nut and cat comes down again and I slowly start putting my hands out and when she wasnt looking I grabbed her. She was very frightened and she was filthy!!!! Not more than 1.5lbs and cute as a button. I told the guy that we are leaving would he run her to the SPCA and well I could tell from the look on his face that he wasnt so off I send hubby to give the kitty a chance. The lady at the SPCA said it was a wild kitten and that they would take care of her when she weighed more than 2 lbs......
here is the chesapeake bay bridge sorry its dark but it was cloudy and getting late there
so now we are like 1.5 hrs behind schedule. We arrived at VA way late like 7:00 ish....and settle in this is the place
the living room:
It was nice and it was right near the ocean so when I looked out I saw the ocean and that was just delightful. It was dirty and being the clean freak that I am we scrubbed the place down before I could settle in.
These flowers (dont know what they are) were taken from my kitchen window
and a hummingbird was drinking from them that was the coolest site as I never have seen one so close, what a beautiful bird!
we needed to stretch so we went exporing before nightfall....
This was right out the front door
Here are some dolphins we saw but they werent jumping
Next day we went to CareAlot pet supplies (where I order most of my stuff) and saved postage and handling
Bought Bindi a new collar
Here is me goofy I found a hat that I love for the sun, my daughter says I look stupid in it
Here are some beach shots Bindi has her face in a crab hole
she chased a crab that lost his hole to retreat and she got pinched on the nose and she ripped the leg right off and ran down the beach trying to get the claw off her nose, I almost peed my pants
of course we did nt catch that on film.....she LICKED the sand too like it was an ice cream cone she pooped sand for days... :P
Then Kemo started licking it the last day GOOFY DOGS!
here they are waiting for dad
This is the goofiest pic - I love both their expressions
Bindi's paw prints in the sand
Bindi letting her paws do the walking thru the yellow pages
Last day kemo did not want to get up
