reading in comfort
Last night brought more rain, lots of it and thunder and lightning. What else is new, right? I was happily ensconced in my bed reading with the A&E tv show First 48 on in the background - hubbie and I are addicted to these shows. Suddenly it started getting a little cramped and warm in the bed because once the rain started furry kids showed up. Within minutes there were 3 or 4 cats on the bed and 1 or 2 elsewhere in the room. I love them with all my heart, but do they all have to hang out with us at once?! Mind you, if it's a clear, sunny day we'll see "neither hide nor hair "of them for hours.
I started thinking how nice it would be to be reading my very enjoyable book, America America on the porch of the The Narragansett Inn on Block Island
or inside comfy in the pretty sun porch in the above-left picture at the 1794 Watchtide by the Sea in Searsport ME overlooking Penobscot Bay.
But I think it'll be a while before we go very far from home because as hubbie correctly (much as I hate to admit it!) points out, we have a responsibility to these cats and, because they came off the street, they are pretty wary of most people so bringing someone else in to care for them would prove difficult. I think I would be an emotional mess if we left them for more than a night anyway. When they were each new to our home, I hated leaving the house for even an hour. I just want them to know that they are safe and loved now and can just enjoy their lives, which from the looks of most of them when they first came to us, they weren't really enjoying life.
So for now I will just dream of porches in distant places.....
This place looks really nice but the name Bellevue, although spelled differently just makes me think of the Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan (NY)! Maybe that would make it easier to spend some time here! Ha ha!
What do you Daydream about?!
