Weekend Happenings


Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a good weekend. We didn't do much for Memorial Day, because everyone was busy hauling cows out to pasture, but me and Henry did walk down to the cemetery and put flowers on some of his great grandparents' graves. Henry helped by carrying the old ratty looking flowers to the dumpster.
It was a long walk, so I also acquired him a toddler bike, so next time, something else can carry him around when he gets tired.
Something fun happened over the weekend also. My cat, Inej, had gone missing a few months ago. At first I thought she might have just gone wandering, like farm cats will do, but then she wasn't coming back, so I worried maybe she got hit by a car or something.
Well, Monday my neighbor texted me to let me know that she had Inej, and her three kittens, and was going to bring them over since they were big enough to travel. Cue the little girl excitement.
Henry was asleep when she dropped them off, so when he woke up I took him outside and he was so excited. He actually handles them remarkably gentle, which I was surprised. Aren't they cute?

So when my neighbor said three kittens, I instantly started picking names for them. (I have a long history of naming kittens crazy band or book names. It's a tradition.) For some reason, I just assumed boy names. Everything is a boy to me. If I don't know what an animal is, I automatically say good boy. Don't ask me why. So I had three glorious boy names picked out, only to find out they were all girls.
Now, I had a cat named Peter Pan as a little kid, who was very much a girl, so the thought did cross my mind to go ahead and name them boy names anyway, but I caved in and chose girl names instead.
This is Vittani. She's pretty shy, but adorable.
This one is Shasta, and seems to be Henry's favorite. She's the most friendly, laid back of the bunch.
This one didn't get a name for a long time. I was drawing a blank. But I eventually decided to call her Minoa.
Henry also got to go to the pool for the first time, with several of his cousins. I didn't take any pictures, because I was pretty busy trying to convince him he wouldn't drown. He wanted to go in, but he kept getting cold and wanting out then, so we're going to go back on a hotter day.
He also got a new bed. *brushes tear* They grow up so fast.
Even though yesterday wasn't technically the weekend anymore, Jarod came home early since it had been raining, and we went and drove around the lake till dark. I haven't driven around the lake in several years, so I had a blast, and it was so relaxing to just wander around with Henry snoozing in the back seat.
And lets not forget the sunset.
What did you do over the weekend? Tell me all about it!
