1st day of summer!

Hello friends.  It's the first day of Summer here in New Zealand!

And as such, I just wanted to share some pics I took a couple of hours ago.  Nothing food related, but still I hope, enjoyable for you.





This would not be complete with a couple of shots of Cyrus, soaking in the sun...

...and being predominantly black, became too hot after several minutes and ran indoors.

Happy Summer my friends!!

PS:  Quick update on the dental front:
I've found out that liquid valium works a treat on me.  Apparently it's meant to make me very relaxed and not be able to feel any anxiety, but still awake and aware.  Well.  According to my dentist, I was awake.  According to me, I was fast asleep.  He was very happy on how it all went - I was ecstatic.  So apart from just before 'lights out' and my friend arriving to pick me up after, I don't remember one iota of anything.  And once I got home I slept for about 19 hours.  All in all, a successful trip to the dentist.  Phew.

  1. Seriously cute photo of your kitty! I hope your recovery is quick and as pain-free as possible, dentist things are never fun.
