A belated happy birthday to my fabulous niece Cat, who turned 19 yesterday! Happy birthday, baby!

I’m back!

You probably noticed that Rufus didn’t write in my blog after all. Too busy getting into trouble and doing chores.

I had a great weekend in the country. It’s so beautiful and peaceful up there, and there’s time to sit in the hammock and read while hummingbirds buzz around the garden. My sister Megan and I helped our brother Jonathan to choose a kitten to adopt from the local Humane Society on Saturday. He’s white and tabby, with really cool markings, and is the perfect combination of cuddly and rowdy. One of the main items on the kitten’s job description is to get rid of the mice in Jonathan’s house, through intimidation or any other means necessary. Jonathan’s dog, Jed, doesn’t mind the kitten, but Jonathan’s 14 year old cat Mars is NOT the kitten’s biggest fan. Yet.

We took Jed swimming in the river on Sunday. It is amazing, but we had the place to ourselves, and all we could hear was the wind in the trees and the birds singing. How great is that when you’re in one of most populated states in the union? Jed had a great time chasing the ball in the water, I got a little sunburned, and it was so much fun!

Sunday also marked Megan & Rob’s 10th anniversary.

Jonathan made his famous chicken crepes for dinner, served with a fantastic salad and his homemade cider. After dinner, we sat in the hot tub and listened to an old radio play (broadcast by KNX in LA every night at 9:00 p.m.) on my 1933 Atwater Kent radio which Jonathan is restoring for me. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Back in the city now and back to work. At least it’s a short day today and the Fourth of July tomorrow!
