Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles

Background: Magic the Cat is a skittish cat. He doesn't let us pick him up, and he dashes downstairs to hide the minute Jim gets home from work. One look from Jim and Magic will cower and try to escape.

Last night Jim sat down on the couch to relax for a bit, and within minutes, he had a "friend."
We don't know what prompted this, but I had to take a picture.
Magic, we cannot figure you out. Katie, maybe this means that Magic will like you too when you come back in July for a visit.

In other news, the weather was GORGEOUS yesterday! I saw the temp at 65! Everyone was out and about and I took fake child to the park after dinner (I babysat until 9:45 p.m.). Oh, how nice it was! The temperature hasn't been this nice since October, I think.

Tune in tomorrow when I chronicle a science project that is taking up precious space on my kitchen counter.

Edited to add: Happy St. Patty's day everyone! St. Patrick's Day reminds me of my Aunt Peg, who was vehemently Irish, and this was HER holiday. Here is an Irish blessing, copied and pasted in her memory:

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Wow, Jim must have that "magic" touch. Ha, I didn't realize I would have a pun in there. This story reminds me of how Spunky would demand cuddles from your mom even though she despised that cat and how Spunky would attack anyone else who dared to touch him.

Wow. I'll bet Jim talks about this for months!! That is nice when a kitty wants some cuddles. Great pictures. Glad you enjoyed some nice weather, too!!
Your cat would hate my guts. I just know it. :)
Jen-I love that story. Mom needs another cat.

Froggy-And Jim is the perfect one to give cuddles to the cat. NOT.

Steph-Magic hates everyone's guts, except Paul's. He likes Paul's guts. And sometimes my guts, but only when my guts have kitty treats for him.
