this-n-that

Happy Earth Day, kids. Sorry, but no Rio photos yet.
In the meantime...


Here's a gratuitously cute shot of the cats. As you can see, all 3 are co-existing peacefully. Fur occassionally flies, but it's usually all in good fun.

On Thursday, good friend, sculptor extraordinaire, Leonard Streckfus drove up from Baltimore. We had dinner at Rx, a sweet little BYOB in West Philly. I ordered the "Omnibus," a colorful array of the veggie sides du jour.

On Saturday, we went to see the Phillies play the San Diego Padres with adorable nephew, John Michael, and his dad. Our Citizens' Bank Stadium is extremely veg-friendly; you can even order vegan hotdogs and burgers.


Here's John Michael, giving the Phillie Phanatic some love. Notice the Yankees t-shirt.


Unfortunately, the Padres beat the Phils 8-5, but that didn't stop us from having a fab time.


On Sunday since I was missing the beach, I drove to Ocean City, NJ, to catch a glimpse of the sea, followed by a sandwich at Katina's.


Then I came home and grooved to some of my new bossa nova CDs with – who else – but Bossa Nova?

Love the kitty pics!! Bossa Nova has, what we call in our house, the crazy eyes! Usually the dilated pupils precede crazy (attack) behavior in our cats!

Can't wait for Rio photos!!

Did you ever think you'd be able to eat veg. @ a ball game???

Looked like a great outing! Did a chili cook off for C-snips yesterday- thunderstorms cut down the visitors, but they still made a good amount for this charity...

Cafe Cyan said...

Looked like a fantastic time at the game.

Rio...so jealous still!

Never realized they were providing vegan options at the ball park.. Guess i figured they just stuck with burgers and hotdogs.
