What a night, definitely worth the money. Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D, Chris Brown, Rihanna, and Kanye. We had 8th row floor. Five hours of entertainment. Kanye had an excellent stage show - what a performer. Too bad I didn't bring my camera but I was worried security would take it (I am such a risk taker). Derek got some pics on his phone but the stage lighting fudged up the pics. Anyway, needless to say, I am pooped today. This old gal ain't as young as she used to be.
AND... Derek was soooooooooo excited - he got a high five from Pharrell. Derek almost knocked me out of the way for that "meeting".
This is what happens when you leave a grocery bag on the floor for even just a second. Baby loves to play with them - but in this case, Baby got very stuck. In one handle she managed to get her head and one front paw into. And in the other handle is her two back paws and tail. I had to get the camera, but don't worry, after I took a few pictures and I got her out of her own mess.
Ok, so I think I have figured it out. Our neighbor's cat (whom I have named Garfield) has been known to hang out in our front and back yard. It really doens't bother me but Max, Baby and Peeps aren't very appreciative of their new neighbor. Plus I think he poops in our bushes and flower garden - not good. I am the "poop nazi". Even Peeps has a special spot to "go".
So, on with my story... 2 days ago we come home from work and Garfield (or so I think it is) is sitting under one of our front shrubs. I try to scare him away, he doesn't blink an eye and rubs up against me purring. Hmmm.... this isn't working, so I put Peeps on his leash and bring him out. That doesn't work either, infact it make Garfield even more mad. HUH? What happened to the skittsh Garfield I *somewhat* know? Garfield swipes at Peeps (first time Peeps has been "put" in his place) and bites Derek.
So this damn cat is now really holding us hostage in our own yard. We can't get rid of him and we try, he completely freaks out.
By the time I figured out how to get him out of our yard (turn on our sprinklers), the cat is gone (damn, I wanted to try the damn sprinkles on that evil cat).
So, on with my story... this morning I saw Garfield again, run across to his home. Dang it!!! That's not the cat that went psycho on us!! There are TWO "Garfields" in our neighborhood. Sheesh, what happened to our city bylaw?
We just put up our wedding arch (between the 2 shrubs). I am looking for a clematis type vine that likes shade. I am hoping someday it will completely covered in leaves and flowers.
Spring is upon us!!! All the leaves are in bloom!
The bestest part of the backyard - our deck!!! She's a real beauty!!! Hopefully Derek has gotten all my hints that I want a deck pond for my birthday (keeps fingers crossed!)
I just can't wait for full-on summer when the leaves are completely finished growing and my plant pots are growing so, so big!! Until then I will wait for the 3 trees shown above to blossom - should be right away!
