 Okay, I’m awful at keeping a secret., at least my own.  In our hunt for the perfect kitty, Friday, we got…………..

Finding Sunshine does not mean the hunt is over, but it was at least a spontaneous decision.  He totally loves Harry.  He’s not hand fed, but handled, and doesn;t bite.  Not affectionate yet, but will get there.  He did fly to Harry on his own.  (despite being clipped, darn it.)

I love TGI Friday’s pineapple, coconut rice, and tried to make it Saturday.  What I got was a major mush.  If anyone has a recipe………  Otherwise back to my coconut, lemon, Jasmine rice.  Much to tell you on the kitty hunting front, but will wait to see what happens.  I’m a redhead, I’m an Aries.  What happened to my impulsiveness???  Must have headed south with my boobs.

Well, Summer is finally here.  School is officially over, and Hubby will be home 24/7 till the end of August.  And I thought I  needed a pet!  Not sure if/what we’ll do vacationwise this summer.  Just ordered AAA’s Trip Tiks (?sp) for Cape Cod and Provincetown.  Any suggestions for driveable vacations where I don’t need to go out in public with a bathaing suit on?

I bought these shoes yesterday.  Gotta cut this out.  Got black sandals, mules and these wedges within two weeks, all in black.  Next time must get brown.

Found a pasta sauce  recipe that looks easy enough for those who use their ovens to store sweaters.  Gave a copy to Hubby, who never cooks anything except oatmeal, and told him to surprise us.

 
 

  
Always Easy Tomato Sauce
 
2 cups chopped tomato (I’d use canned crushed)
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/3 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon olive oil

 

enough pasta for two

 Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, mix tomatoes and herbs. 

 
When the pasta is done cooking, drain, pour in the olive oil and stir.
 
Add the tomato and herb mix to the pasta and stir again. Warm on the stove for 2-4 minutes and serve hot.

Have a terrific weekend.

Apparently I’m not as altruistic as I would like to think I’d be.  Sometimes I just need something easy, just for me.  There’s a lot of guilt attached to that, and I’m avoiding the situation altogether.

I found a wonderful site.  Online Cat Veterinarians help with Feline Medical and Health Problems, Veterinary Questions. Vets Give Answers on Pet Cats, K…, and asked them about the kitten I’ve been hoping for.  Regular ophthalmology vet wanted $240 just for a consultation.  At this site, I wrote abut the situation, and it appears that the kitty’s eyes can’t be fixed, it comes from a herpes virus, and there will always be flare ups.  It was suggested that I go back to the pound and find a healthier kitty.  Spent many tears, but I know he was right, and I spent a  whole lot less $$$.  I went to look at a litter locally.  Cute kitties, but perhaps I’m not ready.  I didn’t feel a connection with any of them.  I need a few days (at least) to get over the one I wanted.  BTW, this site gives legal advice and a variety of other types.  You put a deposit down for what you’re willing to spend, and you have a choice about whether the  advice was worth it.  I picked the lowest amount, $18, and given the option, I accepted the advice and let the payment go through.

Okay, I know I can’t wait months and months for a kitten.  I need that fuzzy goodness now.  (so I’m a two year old).  I went to the pound Saturday.  I held several kittens until one chose me.  He came from a vet’s office when he was very young, and had an upper respiratory infection, and has been at the pound since April.  Why you ask.  He has horrible scarring over one eye.  That in itself doesn’t bother me (I’m blind as a bat mnyself), but their vet first said he was too young for surgery, and then when he was old enough, the vet said it wasn’t necessary.  Of course it’s necessary, it’s just not necessary for them to pay for it, and I really resent that.  They will let a sweet kitty go unadopted for months and months till they put him to sleep, because they can’t be bothered, (or are too cheap with my tax dollars).  Summers are a bit tough on us since neither of us works summers,and after COBRA, rent, etc, unemployment only goes so far.  As much as I loved this little guy who snuggled into my neck and didn’t want to move, I thought I”d speak to my vet first, and get a general idea what expenses would be ahead of me if I take him.  All I know is one eye looks like one big cataract, which I’m pretty familiar with, and it can be taken care of, if I can afford it.  When I left, his ID number in hand, I felt like I’d left a child behind.  I’m just hoping my vet says the surgery is affordable.

Went shopping Sunday.  Got a litter box, litter, litter scoop and food, wet and dry.  Need a scratching  post, but most importantly, a kitten.

Oh yes, the salsa come out quite hot (used Ro-Tel and whole jalapeno), but very tasty.  I bought a bottle at Sam’s since, but will make that again.  Jalapenos can be funny.  I grew them last year.  Some were crazy hot, and others bland.  If your eyes tear when you cut it open, use less.

Well, the doctor said I didn’t need to see him anymore. All the surgcal stuff is healed as well as it’s going to be. Mixed feelings on that. This afternoon Hubby and I had a late breakfast for lunch. We have a Denny’s now, which is new to us, and he’s been dying to try it. After sending back a cheeseburger that was minus the cheese, he had to send it back a second time, not because the cheese was unmelted, but because it was supposed to be medium rare and was very well done. I’d already ordered a TexMex sort of eggs and postato, chorizo, mushroom, onion & hot pepper concoction. Not only was that super filling, despite sharing with Hubby while he waited for his similar, but spinachy dish, burt it came with hot tortillas with sour cream and salsa. Even with help, I ate enough for two and didn’t finish, though I must say Hubby finished all of his except a couple of tortillas. Never ate dinner after that.

*****************

I found this “Speedy” saksa recipe on allrecipes.com, made a fair share of changes, and will make it today. Got lots of tortilla chips at Trader Joe’s yesterday.

Salsa

1 (14.5 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, drained and chopped(or can of Ro-tel plus a handful of grape or cherry tomatoes diced)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
1 tablespoon cider vinegar (or fresh lime juice)
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a food processor, combine all ingredients except tomatoes; cover and process until chunky. Add tomatoes. Transfer to a small bowl. Cover and let rest in fridge at least an hour.
