A Surprise Coming Home and Happy Father’s Day!

Dinner last night at the “Crab Trap” was delicious. There was an hour and fifteen minute wait, though, so we sat outside on a bench for awhile. It was very loud inside. Even louder still when a 70s-style band began to play, because everyone had to talk even louder over the music. It was quite the busy atmosphere.

Today, I went to Shop Rite with my parents to pick up a pumpkin pie for my cousin, since we are going to my Uncle and Aunt’s place for a Father’s Day jamobree! My cousin loves pumpkin pie (he’s only 13) and he really wanted it, but our Aunt didn’t have time to make one, so we went to buy one as a suprise.

We had a surprise coming home. Beni decided while we were gone to take ALL of our shoes lined up by the door and bring them into the living room and put them on the couches in a new line. It was actually really hilarious and I couldn’t help laughing. Beni is just too adorable. Oh! I don’t think I’ve ever shared a photo of her, just of Leila and Pocket. Here is Beni:

Beni

Her actual name is Beignet, because the night we got her, Kit was making beignet’s, and she’s sort of the same color of the finished product. That pretty fawn color. -insert admiring sigh here- She’s a year and 8 months old. She still has puppy habits and she’s sooooo cute! I love her. She’s a good cuddler, and she’s really calm. Her mother is a therapy dog. Her demeanor is much calmer than Leila’s. She hardly barks, unless Leila riles her up. And…she’s staring at me with adorable sad puppy eyes as I’m typing. She wants me to pay attention to her, so I’m going to indulge her and wrap this post up quickly so we can play!

Lastly, though (before I do go), I want to wish all of the Father’s of the world a very happy and fun-filled Father’s Day today!

Look for my words again soon!

A Wacom, Fishing, and a Pet Pocket!

Oh, apparently the time on my Wacom Tablet is wrong. It’s an hour behind. So, while I thought it was 12:44 AM, it’s really 1:44 AM! Ah…I should fix that, but I’ve already shut it down for the night. Tomorrow then…if I remember.

I decided a few hours ago that I want a fishing license. I went to the local Walmart to try and obtain one, but their hours for purchasing one are 8 AM – 8 PM, and since I showed up at 10:30 PM at night, I couldn’t get one. I did buy a new pole however (because I couldn’t untangle the one I had from my brothers’ from when we were kids) and a new bobber. I’ll have to go back in the morning to get my license. My plan is to pick up my 12-yr. old cousin and take him to lunch with Pepere, and then hopefully the three of us can go fishing afterwards. My cousin is all for the idea, we just have to see if Pepere wants to join us. I hope he will. Oh, let me mention, too, that my cousin is home for the next 5 weeks from California, where he lives with his mother. Since he’s with his Dad (my Uncle) until mid-July, I get to hang out with him. Yay! This kid is really awesome and we get along great. Makes me think of Jae, sometimes.

Oh! I’ve just remembered that I have to feed Pocket! She’s my Fancy Leopard Gecko! She’s 11 months old, almost a year! Ah, so cute! I can’t wait for her to be a year old! Here’s here picture, isn’t she adorable?

Pocket

She’s wonderful! I bought her mealworms today when I was at Walmart the first time. I made two trips to Walmart today. I bought my fishing rod during the second trip.

My hand is a bit stiff after spending the past 2.5 hours working on a piece on my Wacom Tablet. I use Fire Alpaca. Ever hear of it? It’s like Photoshop, but easier. A friend of mine from Japan recommended it to me on DeviantArt. I absolutely love it! I find it much easier to use than Photoshop, plus it’s free to download! Can’t be that price! Yay!

Look for my words again soon!
