Wednesday Wishes

This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!

My Wednesday Wishes for the week:

1) A Jets win! I am not a Jets fan. But I am a HUGE LaDanian Tomlinson fan. I'm sad that he didn't get a ring in San Diego so I would really, really like to see him get one this year with the Jets.

I will always remember him like this, though.

2) Magic Oven - I feel guilty asking for the entire kitchen. If I can open the oven door, announce what I want and have it later, I think I can manage to do the dishes myself. Wouldn't that be a fair trade? For example, I need to make some pumpkin muffins tonight. I've got laundry going. I just finished cleaning the house. It would be nice to have the oven fire up and out come those muffins fifteen minutes later. That gives me more time to blog and write!

3) A week in Cambria (see pictures below). No husband. Maybe my dog. Okay, my dog. My dog, my laptop and the beach. It would be nice to have that time away to focus on writing - only. No laundry, no phones, no dusting, no cleaning, no errands. Nothing but writing! Maybe I should get away with a few writer friends for the week. We could all walk on the beach and hike for motivation, then spend the rest of the time writing, writing, writing.

Those rocks hold a bunch of these:

They scared me the first time I wandered out onto the rocks. I wasn't thinking about seals as I made my way out across them, looking at their little treasures. I knelt down to take a picture of a starfish when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye, turned and found myself face to face with a harbor seal who had hopped its way over to me to see what I was doing. It's cute little face seemed to say, "Whatcha doin'?" But I wasn't expecting this so I backpedaled myself almost into the water.

What about you - what are your wishes for Wednesday?


  1. 1) A kick-ass outfit for pennies to wear out next weekend. A low cut jewel coloured top, if we want to be oddly specific.
    2) If you get a week in Cambria I'd like a week in Wales, please.
    3) And I second the Jets win.
    - Sophia.

  2. Take me with you. I need a vacation too, and my dog wants to hang out with yours.

  3. That is awesome!!! I would kill to walk along the beach and stumble into a seal! (well...maybe not stumble into them...)

    I wish for a tiny little man dentist I can keep in a box on my sink that will detail clean my teeth, dentist clean, every day.

    And. Heated floors. All over my house. And a beach in my backyard.

    Oh yea!

  4. lol I love the magic oven and no husband (for a week anyways :p).

    Hmmm, I think I'll go low key and wish for a pair of socks that keep my feet toasty. And a magic computer that types all my work reports for me :D

  5. I want an entire kitchen that is magical and operates entirely on its own.

    I want to go to europe (and my wish might be coming true if I get into this summer exchange thingy at my school! Cross your fingers!)

  6. Uh oh. I'm a big Patriots fan, so I don't know if I can support this whole Jets winning thing. But I will totally go to Cambria! Can't believe you ran into a seal like that!
