How’s your summer going so far? Me? Not too bad, thanks for asking. The weather has been pretty darn nice thus far, though we could use a little more rain.

I know, you’re thinking “Hello?! Doesn’t it always rain in Seattle?!”  Yeah, not as much as you think.

Hence the brown grass expanding its horizon in the backyard. The hubby has been watering the front yard religiously so at least the ‘curb appeal’ keeps that appeal. The backyard is tucked behind a 6-foot privacy fence, so out of sight out of mind…

Speaking of out of sight… The cats have been keeping a very low profile since we brought Lila home. You remember we adopted this cutie patootie:


I don’t think she’s ever seen a cat before – any time either Blackspot or #Squeak have made an appearance on the first floor she goes nuts. She only barks at them when they catch sight of her and run in the opposite direction.

I’m going to have to keep my video camera handy for those rare sightings, though, because Lila is also not used to hardwood floors and it’s hysterical watching her trying to chase after the retreating feline since she doesn’t make any progress as her paws go a million miles a minute in a spin-out on the floors. I hope she doesn’t get an inferiority complex as we laugh at the comical sight.

Speaking of comical sight… I saw this video on Facebook last week and thought it was hysterical – if you are a cat person, you’ll think it’s hysterical, too:

That’s a wrap for this week – I’m keeping it ultra short and sweet since I know y’all have better things to do than hang out on your computers during the summer months. Plus I’m being distracted by shiny objects…

What was I saying? Oh yeah – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome – random or not. Be sure to visit your fellow randomizers so they don’t feel so lonely.

  1. We’ve gotten over an inch of rain this month–of course it all fell in the course of about four days last week–but that’s still a lot of rain for us.
    Our dogs spin out all the time on the pergo floor in the kitchen. But then so does Bruiser.
