Our New Arrival

A Bundle of Joy

The doorbell rang

Are we expecting anybody ?

Oh yes,but that wasn't suppose to be till later

I grab are cat who races for the front door

She gets so excited

I put her in the bathroom temporily and go to shut the door

She outsmarted me

Going under my feet running for the kitchen

I lose my footing and do a little spin

Catching my balance I take a few steps reaching for our little darling

I pick her up in my arms

Giving her a kiss and laughing as her legs are flailing

Her body twisting and shaking

Just for one minute and we will let you out

I see my wife out of the corner of my eye

Thanking this nice handsome neatly dressed guy

The front door shuts and now I open our bathroom door a little

Charlotte peeks her nose then her paw

Off to the hallway to take a closer look

My wife grinning and my cat lifting her head up in surprise

The time is 1:00 in the afternoon

What a great time for it to come so soon

We are off today and what fun we will have

I take a few pictures to remember this moment in the future

I will leave you two alone to get acquainted

I hear my wifes voice as she keeps talking to herself

Trying to figure things out

I will leave this mystery up to you

What could it be that made my wife so happy ?

On a Wednesday where she wouldn't want to go out in the nice 91 degree weather

I will tell you more as soon as the news breaks

Time for lunch and we have to all put good things on hold

Hope your day is going well and please drink lots of water and stay cool

Dream On: I am filled with mystery...hope to see a continuation. It is almost our bed time and I swear my brain shuts down at night, so I will sleep and then return. I don't know if you got another pet, but whatever it is, it caused happiness. A great mysterious hub. Blessings, Sparklea :)

PS: 96 degrees here, unbearably hot.

billybuc Now I am in hot water.I am in a pickle and not sure how to get out of this one.I am in a jam only if it was as sweet as blueberry or strawberry.Well working on my hub and enjoying a good day with so many more laughs.Sparklea How I love pets.We have one cat and another one would be an adopted brother or sister to the one we have.That would be so much fun.Also lots more work and extra everything .Food and cat litter and vet bills.I wonder if I am ready for that.I am sure charlotte would love it.As for a dog that would mean our cat would no longer be the boss.It would be interesting to see how that panned out.You might be right then again you could be wrong.Still working on a hub I can say it was as interesting as the day is long.Thanx for all the wonderful comments and most of all your reading the story of of my life as it unfolds one day at a time.

lol, I think I told you we have four cats who own us! I love animals SO much. I'll never forget when we brought a stray into our home (named her Martha because, like the Martha in the Bible, she is busy, busy, busy). Wondered how the other 3 would react. Our orphan, black and white cat - Sylvester - flirted with her, but she wasn't buying it. She has totally taken over the house. Have a wonderful day. Horrible heat wave here...went on my morning walk at 5:55 a.m. to beat the sunrise. Blessings, Sparklea...keep the mystery going! :)

DDE I try my best to keep each day interesting and full of fun.I love sharing new experiences and what better way than with all the hubbers who I appreciate and love so much.Sparklea I must say anyone with four cats has lots of love for animals as well as a lot of patience because each cat can be a challenge.I had one cat as of last week and her name is Charlotte.She is three years old.She is lovable and wild all at the same time.I once had three cats Whitey, Baby and Darryl 2 .Whitey was a stray and lived to be 19 years old.Baby was from a large litter from a friends cat and Darryl 2 from North East Animal Shelter both lived 17 years. All with such different personalities and each with unique ways to love us. Animals make life so incredible.Thanx for sharing your stories they are so special.GypsyRose Lee What is the temperature there.Thanx everyone for reading and having fun.

It's perfect here this weekend. It was in the 80's today with a low dew point. It's our Raspberry festival in town and we've been outside, under a tent, playing bingo. Perfect weather for this fun celebration.

Temps here in the low 60s and lots of cold wind and rain. Both my hubby and I have bad colds and we even turned on the heat today.

Minnetonka Wow that sounds like so much fun.Busy with work and trying to squeeze some writing time in.Gypsy Rose Lee It is tough when the weather is lousy and your sick on top of it.I can't wait till your weather turns nicer and you are both healthy and well.This gives us time to think why we never take our health for granted and we appreciate it more than anyone could tell.moonlake A new kitty with all it's energy and spirit.Hhhmmm I wonder ?If it was a new kitty would it be a boy or a girl? Would it be one or three? Now that would be really crazy.My wife would kill me.Thanx everyone for reading,The answer will be coming real soon.Have a great day making life more special in some way.
