Thursday Outing......

I made quiche this morning and I had my friend Paddy over for lunch. We enjoyed the cool breezes that have finally made there way to Florida on my front porch. It was really nice to hear the birds singing in the trees, too. After lunch, we went to the IMAX theatre at the Museum of Science and Industry, here in Tampa, to see the movie "Grand Canyon Adventure". I've included the link to the movies website here (Thursday Outing...). It was an awesome movie! Watching it on the IMAX film was amazing....I had to close my eyes sometimes when I felt like I was getting motion sickness but it was so cool and beautiful. Robert Redford narrates the movie and the Dave Matthews Band plays the music, again, so cool! It was a fun afternoon and nice to be out and about.

Lunch with Paddy......

My neighbor, Paddy, and I went for lunch today in South Tampa. I was in need of getting out of the house for awhile today so we went to Pane Rustica for lunch. Link to there website via "Lunch with Paddy....above) .She graciously bought me lunch since I had driven and we both ordered one of the lunch specials "All natural wood fired burger, provolone, buttermilk onion rings, marsala glazed exotic mushrooms, spinach, roasted garlic aioli" Does that not sounds delicious? We were so full neither of us had any room for their yummy desserts. It's the best place and everyone is so friendly there.

After lunch, I took her on a little driving tour of south Tampa along Bayshore Blvd. She's fairly new to town and hasn't ventured too far from our neighborhood but I think as she becomes comfortable with where places are in town that she will venture out some more. We still need to find an authentic Tex-Mex dining experience for her.

Dog Sitting....

So I've been staying at my friend Krisit's house to dog sit with her "sweety" Zamboni while she's been out of town on business. He likes to snuggle up with me on the couch. I think he likes me...even though I am a "cat person."
This afternoon Zamboni was just chillin' on the sofa basking in the skylight from above. Makes you wonder what he was thinking...huh?

I saw this quote yesterday and I thought it was pretty funny..."Cats are just tiny women in cheap fur coats" :-) Made me smile
