Oh has life been busy..? Why yes, yes it has…and I hate it. School started two weeks earlier than I had originally planned/thought so I didn’t exactly finish my summer to-do list but I AM still working on it. I am almost done reading Lord of the Rings, I did end up making a new pie (that post will be written soon hopefully) and I just gave up on the flower bulbs so now they are completely dead in my backyard and honestly I could care less because they were annoying little things. I adopted a new outside cat (my mom has to keep reminding me that he is in fact an outside cat) named Baloo after the bear from the Jungle Book. He is absolutely darling! If I could have one pet for the rest of my life I would choose him. I recently went on an interesting trip to Vegas…learned a lot on that trip (hopefully I will also be able to write about that as well soon). Other than all that it’s just been school, visiting with a cat, and somehow losing my mind in the process. My life sounds very simple right now but it really isn’t haha.
I miss my blog, I feel like I have been neglecting a friend or a good book that I started and never finished and its bothering me. I hope to get in the groove of things and finally have a bit of an organized life so that I can start blogging again because it is truly missed!
That is all for now. I hope to be back on soon writing about Vegas and the outlet store finds and also Baloo and the pie. Thank you for reading and I hope everyone has an amazing week!!! 🙂 (It felt weird not having a picture so here ya go…:] )
I have two dogs, Daisy..a boxer and Tootsie a shih-tzu. Tootsie’s the oddest dog we’ve had so far, we got her after our other shih-tzu, whose name was Moses passed away..anyways when we got her she was this crazy little ball of fur who immediately became best friends with Daisy.
The two were inseparable! And this remained true for about a year and a half and then everything changed…Tootsie was introduced to Drama (my little kitten) and they became buddies too. Toot’s soon realized she had a dream…to one day become a cat. This is what makes Tootsie very odd, she climbs the couch and lies on the top like our cats Hunter and Drama, she tries to eat their food (constantly) and finally whenever im in the backyard watering the plants and playing with my pups Tootsie runs up to our tree and waits for me to place her in the tree. I believe she wants in the tree because at night Drama hides in the tree and sometimes Toot’s see’s her.
Tootsie will never give up on her dream to become a cat, I cant help but love her for it.
I hope you all have an awesome monday and an amazing week!! 🙂
I’ve decided to start posting pictures that I’ve just taken and calling them at the moment. The pictures will be of anything..school notes, my pets, a book..pretty much anything im working on at the moment. This weeks “At the moment” picture is of my cat Hunter lounging on my vanity set…ladies and gentelmen…I give you Hunter..
Isnt he darling? And now, song of the week!!
I found this song while watching the amazing television show “No Reservations” the holiday special…awesome episode!! Anyways at the end Tony and his friend went to eat at a chinese food resteraunt with…wait for it…Marky Ramone (Ramone..Ramone as in The Ramones)!!! and Michale Graves! Anyways after feasting on chinese food and talking about personal tiffs with bands and Santa (yes, santa) the credits rolled and this song was played and I swooped into action on google to find it. The song I present to you readers is..”When we were Angels”!! apparently its a reworking of a Michale Graves song for Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg. The song is awesome!! totally upbeat, again the vocals are perfect..there gritty and wonderful and the fact that Marky is on drums makes the song even more special.
After learning the lyrics..goodluck not singing along, because at the moment I’m singing as loud as I can with Michale 😉 and its addicting.
I hope you all continue to have an awesome Monday and an awesome week!!
Finally I have a chance to write about my tree…here I go.
We get our tree every year from Home Depot, before we make the purchase…we eat out at a mexican food restaurant called Mario’s..its absolutley delicious!!!
I name my christmas trees every year, last years was Watson and this years is Lord Byron! after the poet..the name seemed so fitting..i did have it picked out before we even got our tree but my goodness does it fit this tree is amazing…hands down the best tree we have ever gotten.
Now before lord Byron looked like this it was absolutely naked haha
and of course..Hunter..our cat who is ruler of the house hold had to do his rounds and make sure this tree was fit for our viewing of this holiday season
He was only scared away when our little pup Tootsie came wandering out to see what he was up to. Most of the ornaments on the tree this year were hand painted by me and my mother…these are my favorite ornaments
The last picture is of my favorite ornament, its Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in drag for Some Like It Hot (:
I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas and got a tree is as happy with theirs as we are with ours!
Every night I walk my dogs but last night was different, I walked my dogs twice..I usually never do this but right when I was about to go to bed I saw outside my window how super foggy it had gotten and I just had to walk around in it. I got dressed, put the leashes on the dogs (who were pretty confused) and we walked outside for our adventure time. I love fog..especially when it is super thick just as it was last night (it was amazing I felt like I was walking in water). I love adventure, im absolutely obsessed with the Lord of the Rings because they get to go on an “epic” adventure and when I watch the movie it makes me feel like I got to go. Last night was my adventure…it may seem silly that just a little fog in my neighborhood is my adventure but what made the walk an adventure was I was seeing my neighborhood in a different way…which is probably the easiest way to have an adventure. I could barely see in front of me (it was as thick as that fog in that Scooby doo episode where he cuts a slice and eats it haha)..but it was beautiful to see the christmas lights peek out through the fog..as well as the street lights peeking out through the trees creating long rays of light. The song that was stuck in my head while walking was this exact one…The banjolin song by Mumford and sons..its absolutley beautiful! The melody is so much fun and makes me want to go on that walk again, the lyrics are amazing (like always with this band) after listening to this song you will want to replay it over and over..
I hope everyone has an awesome week!!
(This picture is of my cat Hunter..he walks me and my dogs home every night after our walk haha even last night at the second walk in the fog he came and walked us home)

Oh Drama, my loony kitten whose very start of life is a complete mystery to me.
What is there to say about Drama?
Well, she’s a crazy, she’s an evil creature, her brain must be similar to the messed up one the monster in Frankenstein gets instead of the normal one. She might be so odd because her first 3 weeks of life were spent in a car, at least I think they were. See, I found Drama down the street from my house in a car parked in the driveway of an abandoned house, I was with my friend when we were coming home from the park and we heard meowing, we had heard it on the way there, but we simply ignored it. Anyways some neighbors came out and told us they had been hearing it all day, we looked under the car and there “It” (I say that in a loving way of course she’s my baby) was. Now this is no normal cat, one time about 7 months ago there was a bird in our backyard and when it would “chirp” or whatever it is called it sounded like a creaky gate in the middle of a storm, it was terrible! this bird tormented me for weeks…..then one day Drama caught the bird like she knew it was bothering me. What made it really weird was that she only hunts mice, she never hunts birds and catches them. Anyways after hours of trying and now 8 neighbors helping it was clear Drama wasnt coming out. My mother called me saying to walk home and wait three hours, now my mom was thinking that the cat would of course be gone by then but me and my friend were thinking that cat is ours. Three hours later at 11:30 we walked back down the street, and we heard Drama. Somehow we managed to scare her out of the car and then we had to chase her for 20 minutes with the hunt ending in prickly bushes, luckily my friend was willing to reach in and pull her out. Finally we were walking home with out new little crazy kitten who was fighting with all her strength to get away. Drama has gotten nicer and a lot less skittish but she still seems so crazy like she’s an evil master mind, especially when you are watching tv and she is laying on the couch and you look over at her and she’s staring at you with the most evil look. My favorite memory of Drama is when she was kitten she lived on my bed in this cage that I made with old wire I used so my rabbit could go outside, anyways as she got older she would climb the cage and escape which was hilarious to watch so I finally had to pin a blanket on top….it was the cutest thing to watch her try to escape. I love my cat Drama who is no longer a kitten even though I still call her one, I love her like a kid probably because I bottle fed her (she also use to bite and rip the top of the bottles so we had to buy one after another) but she seems so evil at times its crazy to watch. The pic of her in the towel is right after her first bath when she was just a baby 🙂 and the other pic is the most recent.
