Long time no write! Things have actually been pretty busy for me lately, so I’m posting these a bit later than I’d wanted to. Near the end of last month, I went to Tower Grove Park with my roommie so that she could take some photos for her photography class. I took a few as well of course!
Last week, Katie and I flew down to Tampa to visit my family for a few days. Florida was hot and miserable as usual, but we did get to go out to St. Pete beach at sunset, so that made up for it all. My cousin was with us too, so that made the time even more enjoyable!
The sunset over the water was really gorgeous! Katie and I had our nicer cameras with us, so we took a lot of pictures while we were there. I’ve yet to have time to get mine off my camera, but I plan to this weekend.
Being there reminded me of my childhood as we used to go to the beach quite a bit. If there’s any one thing that I miss in Florida that we don’t have here in Missouri, it’s the beach (St Pete, to be exact). Other than that, Florida is pretty dull and way too hot for me, haha.
While seeing my family and being at the beach was nice, I missed my little cuddle buddies and couldn’t wait to get back home to them.
Snowing again today and I’m stuck here in a cubicle when I’d rather be home snuggling with the cats. At least I have that to look forward to after work.
Rio had her first little trek in the snow last week. More like a few steps, as she was on our deck, but I’m not sure she liked it very much. She left these cute little paw prints for me though.
I think she’s more of a watching the snow fall kind of kitty rather than a prance around in the snow type.
Also, signal boosting this for a friend of mine. Her kitties experienced a strange, unknown-as-of-yet illness, which resulted in a very large vet bill. Both kitties seem to be doing fine now. If you can either contribute to help them out or just spread the link, they’ll appreciate it!

Saturday evening, we went to the home of a co-worker of Katie’s dad for a bonfire and stargazing party. We arrived there in time to see the pretty sunset, so I took a few pictures, the above panorama being the best of them.
The stargazing portion of the night didn’t go as planned since it was really cloudy until around 9pm, but we did get to see some clear sky before we left. It was nice to look up and see a lot of stars! We live in the suburb, so there’s too much light pollution from businesses and street lights nearby. We do see more than if we lived in the city though.
Katie also took a lot of pictures there, even some of the stars. Once she uploads those, I’ll link them!
I stayed home from work yesterday because I wasn’t feeling well and, of course, I had my cat-nurse on me all day. He’s not good at bringing me food or water, but he is really good at keeping me asleep.
When I wasn’t sleeping, I tried catching up on One Piece since Crunchyroll seemed to be working a little better than it has been. I managed to make it through 20 episodes..only 482 left to catch up! (orz)
Happy new year!
Of course the first picture of the new year is going to be a feline.
My New Year’s Eve was uneventful, but relaxing. New Year’s Day was about the same, but I did manage to finish a a clay project that I’ve been wanting to get done.
These were meant to be Christmas presents for ALvino, but work and my Etsy shop had me pretty busy during the holiday season, so I never got a chance to start on them. I still need to sand and glaze them before I ship them off. I hope they like them!
I hope everyone had a happy start to the new year☆
I can’t believe that it’s already August! This year really feels like it’s going by fast. We move a week from Wednesday, so now starts the serious packing. I’m really looking forward to moving to the new place, but not looking forward to the actual moving part, haha. This move should be easier than the last move, though, since the new place is just up the street from our current place. The most difficult thing will be having to move up and down three flights of stairs again, especially furniture because the stairs are so narrow. I’m glad the new place only has one!
Yesterday, we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. It was okay, just not my kind of movie. It was amusing, so that kind of made it a little more enjoyable for me. I think anyone who likes those sort of movies will like it though.
