We didn’t get to the Highland Games this weekend. We had a lot of noisy neighbors all Friday night to Saturday morning so we didn’t get much sleep. At some point and I have no idea when I made an unconscious decision and turned my alarm off and Ali didn’t really want to go by then. ( She had had 2 gentlemen? yacking loudly in Hebrew outside her window at 3am. They didn’t even live near us because when she yelled at them to be quiet they left in a car. We needed to leave by 7am and that meant getting up at 5:30am or so.

So I went to see X-Men. I liked it and Ali had hated it probably for the same reason I hated the latest Harry Potter. She loves comic books and has collected since she was little. The first thing she ever bought herself was a statue of Rogue. So she was not happy about Rogue and she has always hated what they did to Storm. I don’t care I love Wolverine, Xavier and I’ve always loved the Beast. Got to love that they had him say “Oh my stars and garters”.

Then went and bought supplies so we can take Liath on the bikes. We need to find a box that will fit the back of the trike. Found one that may work but it’s 90 bucks. Which is a bit steep but Ali wants to get this :http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BASMWC/sr=1-4/qid=1151338724/ref=sr_1_4/002-9877032-1566460?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden. This might be a bit excessive even for us but it would be way funny.

Yesterday before after we had watched England beat Ecuador, it got crazy hot and muggy we rode our cycles and and then retreated again to the AC. Last night it got ferociously windy and wild. Scared the kitty.

I love the wind but trying to sleep with the vertical blinds open was like sleeping near a crazed flamenco dancer. So I had to close the window til I got too hot.

But I love Wind! It may have something to do with being a double Gemini or not.

Or we could get this one:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002OVBVG/sr=1-12/qid=1151359713/ref=sr_1_12/002-9877032-1566460?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden

Happiness Is….

HAPPINESS IS FINDING A PENCIL.
PIZZA WITH SAUSAGE
TELLING THE TIME.
HAPPINESS IS LEARNING TO WHISTLE.
TYING YOUR SHOE FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME.

HAPPINESS IS PLAYING THE DRUM IN YOUR OWN SCHOOL BAND.
AND HAPPINESS IS WALKING HAND IN HAND.
HAPPINESS IS TWO KINDS OF ICE CREAM.
KNOWING A SECRET.
CLIMBING A TREE.
HAPPINESS IS FIVE DIFFERENT CRAYONS.
CATCHING A FIREFLY.
SETTING HIM FREE.

HAPPINESS IS BEING ALONE EVERY NOW AND THEN.
AND HAPPINESS IS COMING HOME AGAIN.
HAPPINESS IS MORNING AND EVENING,
DAY TIME AND NIGHT TIME TOO.
FOR HAPPINESS IS ANYONE AND ANYTHING AT ALL
THAT’S LOVED BY YOU.

HAPPINESS IS HAVING A SISTER.
SHARING A SANDWICH.
GETTING ALONG.
HAPPINESS IS SINGING TOGETHER WHEN DAY IS THROUGH,
AND HAPPINESS IS THOSE WHO SING WITH YOU.
HAPPINESS IS MORNING AND EVENING,
DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME TOO.
FOR HAPPINESS IS ANYONE AND ANYTHING AT ALL
THAT’S LOVED BY YOU.
