Cat-and-Mouse Business

Stormy weather kept me inside going all crazy updating calendars, completing registration forms, rolling over files from previous school years, etc. etc. So yes, the bad weather really was a blessing-in-disguise for getting things done before the new school year starts… ON WEDNESDAY.
Of this upcoming week.
Sill in shock.
I know.
Anyway, Smokie had ideas of her own while all of this work was taking place in the Catholic Homestead:

Dude? Who put in a request for this?

The weather people predicted 100 degree temps for the Heartland of America today, and guess what? This snapshot of our rear-view mirror on the way home from mass today confirms it:

Winos Gone Wild

Another early start to our Saturday in California, only this time we found ourselves at San Diego Zoo where the Catholic Family and I set eyes on animals we’d never before seen in real life: PANDA BEARS. Not only that, but afterward, we ventured through Coronado where we did some Hotel Del Coronado sightseeing and drooled a lil’, mostly because the Disney version we viewed in Florida was a pretty darn close rendition of the real thing. And finally, the Catholic Family found a beach shop, stumbling upon a comfie Oceanside hoodie to keep mom warm during the last evening surfside where the pier lit up beautifully, a much more valuable souvenir than any other imaginable.

Besides those cheap inexpensive Barefoot, Woodbridge, Tisdale & Turning Leaf bottles of California-made wine consumed throughout the vacation. Because really, that just goes without saying.

Tail Chasing

It’s odd, but instead of feeling all relaxed and enjoying the lazy freedoms of summer, lately I’ve been in so much of a frenzy trying to keep up with everyday stuff that I feel exactly like a dog chasing it’s tail. Not that I truly know the sensation of chasing one’s actual TAIL, but I get it now. So it’s days like today that are a big freaking blessing in disguise, one where the threat of severe weather keeps people indoors for the afternoon, away from the pool, and getting all caught up with the summer game plan again.

Tomorrow: Netflix Movie Day & Music Conservatory.
