April SNOW showers bring May flowers?

It snowed here last night, can't believe it........I am cold! I guess I should have expected it living in Northern Michigan. So, if anyone has a burning desire to make a snow angel, snowman or snowball, head on over to my place and we will have a real good time!

This past weekend I went to visit Erin in NYC. We had so much fun just hanging out. She took me all over the city to see the touristy sites and also showed me a few of Brooklyn's hot spots. I took my first subway ride, walked the Brooklyn Bridge, took a cab ride all by myself ;) and even ate at a restaurant featured the night before on the food channel. I had a great time and I can't wait to go back!! Thanks for the awesome hospitality Erin!

We walked through Central Park. Erin works in those buildings behind us. Very cool!
Times Square!
On the way to the dog park with Oscar. A view of the city from Brooklyn.

Having a great time in NYC with Erin. Today we walked the Brooklyn Bridge and went to the dog park with her dog Oscar. I will post more once my fun here is over.

One of my lady friends at work lives on a farm and she invited me over this weekend for a visit. I had a lot of fun and it did me good to hangout with the animals. We took her 5 dogs for a walk, a golden, a lab, a GIANT sheep dog, and two average sized mutts. They rolled in the snow, chased deer and ran through the mud. We also played with her 4 cats (Smokes would have loved it!) I didn't know there was such a pretty countryside in Petoskey.

Check out Lewis the parrot. He is so smart and loves to talk. Very neat!
Bonnie has 8 horses. I got to give them treats and such, I am going back this spring to ride them hopefully.
Saturday Lance has a basketball tournament. His team did good and I had a lot of fun sitting in the stands with the other girlfriends.

We got like 15 inches of snow here the other night. I have never seen so much snow at once. I had to work extra hours at the hospital because they had a hard time getting nurses to come in. CRAZY!! I hope this is the last snow of the year, I am ready for spring. I got my car stuck a number of times, but the plow guys were real nice and helped get me out. Hope everyone is having fun in Florida!

Look at how tall my cat grass is getting. Dirty has her eyes on it and after I get off work tonight the kitties are going to feast on this stuff. Smokes has never tried it, but I am sure he will love it. I think it looks pretty, it adds some life to my house. Lets hope they don't make a mess on the freshly cleaned carpet ;)

Smokes is still enjoying the fans and pulled back carpet. I don't think he wants the carpet to dry.

Woke up to a flood this morning. I called the office here to request the first available maintenance man and by the time he got to my apartment the toes of his boots were covered with ice cold water. What a mess. I have had dudes walking in and out of my apartment all morning. They sucked up all the water and left me with 5 giant, loud fans and a lovely dehumidifier that seems to be shooting out cold air (not sure if this is normal?!) Anyway, they said to leave them plugged in for a couple of days and we will see then if I need new drywall and baseboard. They said they would be back in the morning to check on me (probably to make sure the giant blue thing doesnt suck me up during the night.) I really don't want to move, because this is my home and I can't just leave (ha). So anyway, all said and done, my rugs will dry as will the rest of my stuff that got wet. Nothing valuable was lost and it is absolutely hilarious to watch Smokes' fat pouch blow in the wind from the fans (video to come if I can get a good one.)

Welcome home Dirty!

Dirty moved in today. She is feeling right at home and has already claimed her spot on the bed for tonight. She is one smart kitty, Smokes is too busy sniffing his gal's bottom and checking out her bed to even notice that his usual night time spot has been taken over. Don't worry mom and dad, Dirty is going to love her vacation just as much as you do! Have a great time!!

Smokes says "thanx fo the new bed, I luv to sit in it and sun my ballz" ;)
