the death ray strikes again

Our home faces southward which is a glorious thing for those that love a bright sunny house.  We have a large window above the front door and only during the colder months when the sun is lower emits the perfect sunlight on our floor.  That light...  we call it the death ray because the cats seem to gravitate towards the light and lay down.  Some days I'll even sit on the ground with them just to bask in the sun myself.

hello november

I'm not sure who is the most curious of the two of them, but it was a first for Contessa to photobomb during the calendar change.  She usually watches from afar.  On another note, it's November.  It's officially fireplace, s'more and sweatpants season in our household.  No complaints here.  However, I wouldn't complain if we had a little more sunshine and a little less rain.  It really does put a damper on any outdoor activities. 

OH and Thanksgiving it's in 24 days
AND Christmas it's in 53 days

BUT who's counting?!

a trip to the zoo

starting in Africa

here we hunted for as many colorful birds as we could find


into the America's  - it was like being at home in Florida

polar bears are def one of my fave's

no different than our cats at home


back to Africa - harry and the henderson's moment between me and this guy

Our trip for our anniversary (back in August), was postponed over and over and over again.  Bad rainy weather for a beach trip - postpone.  More bad rainy weather for almost 2 weeks - postpone.  Beach erosion made the roads impassable, so then we were going to go hiking for the day - 2 hour drive.  I woke up not feeling the 4 hours in the car for the day plus hiking, but after much discussion of what to do we came up with the zoo!  We've both always wanted to go and it's not that far from us.  So we packed lunches and shoved all of our gear in our hiking backpack (yes we were those people) and headed to the zoo.  To much surprise it was 3.5 miles long (one-way) and mostly shaded.  The weather, oh the weather.  I kept saying to Joe.  It's amazing out.  It's amazing out.  We just couldn't have asked for a better day to go, because it was just glorious.
