Well, today it was back to school for me and the kids. A few minutes into our morning drive and a bus decided to play bumper cars with us.
It's like I'm the flame and all the drivers out there are the moths. My car has been dented, scraped, bumped and banged more times than I can count. I never had this problem in the States. Some days I just want to sit on a bench and watch the world go by.
Jingles just doesn't know what an easy life she has.
Especially when lots of kitties have to live in the streets. It is a real problem in this country. Someone takes a kitten home because they think it is cute, but as it gets older, they put it out and so the cycle begins. Cats running the streets like mice do in the cities. I keep food and containers in my car and feed them as I am able.
Zack had baseball practice after school. At least my car wasn't slammed in a way that made it undrivable. I don't know what I would do without my car.
Today is Sam's 51st birthday. He doesn't really like to celebrate them but I gave him a turtleneck and 2010 edition of the Guiness Book of World Records. For dinner I baked fresh salmon, made potatoes, broccoli and a tomato & cilantro salad. Brownies for dessert.
(The picture above is from our lunch out on Saturday and that is not the turtleneck he got this evening.) He was a little uptight about the accident, but I put things in perspective. Would you rather have a crushed car or crushed kids? Honestly, it could have been much worse. We had a nice walk this evening. The weather is good and we have the most amazing sunsets lately.
"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Tomorrow is another day! Hopefully a quiet and uneventful one. Peace & blessings, Tammy
