Duckies and Kitties and Broken I- Nets (again!)
Broken Internets, Baby Ducks and Hot and Sleepy Kitties (oh my!)
Well, we are finally able to get online again! After a weekend of torrents of rain and lots of lightning and steamy temps, our internet was poof! As in all gone! Finally someone came to fix it and we were told it may be our modem. So far though after resetting it we are back online. Our IP company told us they will credit our account for the time we were offline. This is the second time in a month! Talk about frustrating!
So, while the kitties slept and we had free time the husband and I decided to enjoy what is left of the summer. We went to a little town near by called Rockford. (By the way, that is the town that the first Darrin from Bewitched lived for the remainder of his days, which is kinda cool.) I took my camera and I was so glad that I did. Look at Momma duck and her babies! Twelve baby ducklings following her so nicely. We felt blessed to see something so precious.
We visited some cute little shops and I found that little yellow bird that Toeshee is napping with. He has promised he will not jump on the mantle where it now resides and knock it off.
There is a bookstore there that is connected to an old train car. It is so cool and the best part is the kitties that work there! There is a little black one and a big white one with orange patches. They followed us around the whole store and I couldn't stop petting them and talking to them. Poor husband, stuck in a train car full of romance novels and me playing with kitties! :) He got ice cream, so he didn't complain too much.
I will try to find the website of the store and hopefully there are pictures of the kitties on it.
So now today, is recuperating day for me. I did a lot of walking and my hip is being contrary about it. It is finally warm here and my husband has the week off of work. My two floof monsters Miss Billie and Toeshee are very warm, but they seem happy with the nice weather.
I have missed visiting with everyone so much! I hope I didn't miss anything important. I think with it being summer there are probably a lot of people and their furbabies just chill-axing.
I hope everyone is able to take a day or two to enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
The kitties and I send you all lots of hugs!
