Spa Saturday and an Open Window

Karl and Ruis came up with the most smashing new look for Spring 2008 -- the Spa Look! So I simply had to try it, as I was lounging in the laundry basket.

The last couple of days have been rainy, but Thursday was gorgeous -- a harbinger of Spring! The temperature hit seventy degrees Fahrenheit, and Mom and Dad opened the windows. We Ballicai love open windows (they are screened in, so we can't jump out).

Here's me and my little sister Dorydoo, on the window perch together. Mom got out the camera and told us to say "cheese", and we responded, in unison: "We'd rather say 'Temptations!'"

Here's a picture of me on the perch with MaoMao and Brainball. You'll notice, in these pictures, that though I get along with my siblings, I like to maintain a certain amount of purrsonal space.

And here's a picture of me, gazing out at the night, counting stars, and looking forward to many more warm, sunny days to come.

Oh, wasn't that wonderful to take a spa day. You look very refreshed. Especially afer getting to sit in front of an open window and breathe the fresh air. We still got gobs of rain. Oh, so boring.

At least mom bean is happy, sitting in her recliner writing and I'm happier that I get to sit at her feet. Sometimes on her legs. She's a wiggler though. If I'm on her legs too long she wiggles me off.
