Etta James said it best when she proclaimed that she was looking for “a love to last past Saturday night.” On Sunday, February 21, I discovered that I had been staring my Sunday kind of love right in the face for so long now: my best friends, Ashley and Michelle. Etta never said that Sunday loves had to be of the romantic type. Week after week, these beautiful women make my life. They hold my hand through the tough times, listen to endless complaints, don’t care when I’m beating a dead horse, and, most importantly, they laugh with me. Last night was no exception. What I thought was supposed to be a simple dinner turned out to be a surprise love fest. They spent the day grocery shopping and planning a beautiful evening for me equipped with a pumpernickel bread bowl, spinach dip, amazing cheese, a beautiful salad, perfectly cooked spaghetti, dinosaur gummies, fireballs, candy buttons, pixie sticks, and lovely yellow tulips. It was a feast. I felt so special, so loved, so happy.
I know what you’re thinking, and yes, this is a very distinguished looking moustache for a cat. But if any cat can pull off this level of sophistication, that cat is J. Alfred Prufrock. And since you were wondering, indeed, he is quite the ladies’ man!
I am in love love love with this ring. I shall one day have one of my very own!
There was no magic. I did not wake up next to an impeccably dressed/ruggedly handsome/beautiful bone structured man with animal magnetism…hehe. No. Instead, I woke up to my lovely kitties, which is enough (for now). At least with them I don’t have to worry about whether I have any residual mascara smeared under my eyes.
I’m hoping to magically wake up next to this….sigh.
This has been the best blizzard ever. #1) Temple canceled classes not one but TWO days in a row. (This may seem silly to be excited about, but Temple NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER cancels.) #2) I had the most amazing days with my two best friends playing in the snow, having heart to hearts, and drinking beer.
Tonight we’re going dancing, so I spent some me-time today building a snowperson in my back yard. I had no sticks so I used icicles to make the arms, nose, and eyes. I think that my person is cute, and I have some great scenery now.
We had a crazy blizzard last night/today in Philadelphia. I think the measured amount was over 20 inches! So here I am, snowed in. It’s great and relaxing. Oh, and it is the kitties first experience with snow!
This is what it looked like when I opened the door to my garden.
Penelope was very interested.
