I am really pissed off right now. I just spent money at the vet that I shouldn't have had to. My kitty, my little Cagey. You remember he got caught in the soccer net. Well the neighborhood tom cat, beat the crap out of him. He ripped the hair off of him from knee to foot on his back leg and he has a a gaping wound on his haunch. The problem is I'm friends with the owner of this cat, yet I would like to call animal control and have him picked up. They won't let him in the house anymore. He fights with all the cats in the neighborhood and he sprays my bushes, front door, back door, all the kids playground equipment. F**k!!
We took the Interislander Ferry from the North Islands thru the Sounds to the South Island. From Picton we drove to Nelson. On the way we stopped for the toilet. There was a beautiful old church and a pub in this little group of buildings. Well, you know me I grab my camera and start taking pictures.

Day 4 we hiked to Butterfly Creek. I may have touched on this in an earlier post, but we walked up a mountain - they call it a hill, but it was a mountain, trust me. It was suppose to take 1 hour & 20 minutes, but it took a lot longer. I'm not sure if that was because we were out of shape, or my mother decided we had to take pictures every 30 feet or so.

My sister and I have been hunting sea glass most mornings and have aquired quite a large collection. We went on a 10 -15 killometer bush walk yesterday. We have entiled it "Giggles & Dribbles", but that is a whole other post. We have enjoyed coffee overlooking the sea at Chocolate Dayz Cafe and today are exploring Wellington - and shopping a little.
I have to say - YOU NEED MORE THAN XANAX TO GET THROUGH THAT FLIGHT. That's another post as well.

Some of the best books I've ever read in no particular order:
- Praying for Sleep, Jeffrey Deaver
- A Maiden's Grave, Jeffrey Deaver
- All the Stephanie Plum Novels, Janet Evanovich
- The Lovely Bones, Alice Sebold
- The Brothers Karamozov, Fyodor Dostovesky
Authors I rarely pass up
- Jeffrey Deaver
- Janet Evanovich
- Michael Connoly
- Greg Iles
- Clive Cussler - I love the Dirk Pitt novels
- Dan Brown
- Nelson DeMille
I probably will hit myself on the head and realize I left out 3 of my favorite authors. I could read all day, every day and well do. I read everyday, I try to write everyday.
I read blogs everyday, see them on the left. Check them out. The best writer out of all of them, Krista.
I hate that with all the new books being written every year Hollywood has to remake the same movies over and over and over. Can we get some new material!
