This weekend was great – gorgeous, warm, sunny weather, off work at 5:30 on Saturday with plenty of evening left, and off completely on Sunday. I got to spend some time out in the sun – Destin was mowing the yard so I took the time to dead-head the flowerbed full of bulbs on the side of the house so I didn’t look like a lazy bum, and decided to get some color in the process.
I’ve got to say, cooked lobster wasn’t the color I was going for, but it’s what I got. And since I was wearing a bikini top and ended up working in the garden for about three hours, I burned my entire back. At least I learned my lesson early this summer instead of out at the cabin like last summer! Another upshot – I found out that Banana Boat makes aloe gel with lidocaine in it
A kitten has been getting friendly with us, and after we gave her some food, she seems to be considering us for adoption. I actually bought cat food, since I’m sure it’s better for her than people-food, and I’m sure curious as to if she’s got an owner or if she’s a stray/abandoned… she seems friendly enough, and she’s quite a talker. She’s not very big… not tiny kitten size, but still seems pretty young.
Last night I got to have some fun with my DSLR in rapid-shoot mode while she investigated Destin and the weeding he was doing. She also investigated my camera, and I’m glad I’ve got a UV filter on the lens or I’d have kitten nose prints on my camera lens! This is the first we’ve seen of her in the evening… she’s been by a few times mid-morning, and she hung around for a while last night, even when the hose got brought out and Destin washed my car! It was fun having something other than flowers to take pictures of – I think I’ve found a new photography subject 😉
I’ve got all of next weekend off, and I bought sunscreen today to avoid a repeat of yesterday!
