Random Ramblings

I have been somewhat under the weather these past few days and just couldn't stand to be online a whole heck of a lot. But now, I am hopefully on the mend and anxious to get back to the bloggy world.

The weather has been warm, but sunny these past few days and it has totally sucked being sick and not able to enjoy it. Being sick I didn't get much housework done, and it is really too nice NOT to be outside so it looks like the cleaning can wait until a rainy day.

Tippy the cat I wrote about on an earlier post had been missing a few days (like 5!) and I thought he'd met his maker but he showed up one day, thin, tired and exhausted. I was sick, but managed to pick him up and put him in the pet carrier and take him to the vets that same day. He had apparently been shut in a garage or someplace where he did not have the chance to get out, so he got some hydration via IV-and some antibiotics because it appeared that he also got into a cat fight. The ugly looking marks he had were self inflicted, all that scratching from fleas made him miserable. He also got a shot and some antibiotics to calm things down a bit there-all the cats got their monthly dose of Frontline. Apparently Tippy will survive-he had a rabies shot and tested negative for Feline Aids and Leukemia which I was really worried about. So this is definitely a happy ending to Tippy the cat and his adventures away from home. He was so happy that when I left him some food outside the night before last, I got up yesterday morning and found an "offering" in the empty plate. I honestly don't know what he thinks I would do with the half eaten back end of a mouse but it was the thought that counts.

Tonight is the Neighborhood National Night Out party and my daughter (who was sicker than heck yesterday) is bound and determined she is going and jumping in the bounce house. I have no desire to go, but it is right at the end of my street so her brother will be taking her when it gets a bit cooler outside. I am going to check out some of my favorite blogs and relax!

Just thought I would add a random photo, added a pic of our friends Joao and Regina's parakeets-they fly from their cage in the kitchen to one of Regina's plants and love to hide behind it thinking we can't see them. I caught them when they weren't looking ;)

Hi Michelle,

I wanted to thank you for stopping by Women' Life Link and for your comments.

Your post hit home when you talked about your cat disappearing for 5 days. We have many cats (a pride)and one of them is always taking an extended vacation. The longest time we were missing one was about 5 days. I hate when they do that.

I wanted to let you know that I was getting ready to do a review on a product for dark spots; I will let you know how I do with it. I understand the whole 40-something skin changes.

Be well,
