Raphi's Coming, Raphi's Coming!

We got news this morning that, indeed, Raphael is coming to visit Riverside. He arrives -- TOMORROW! Eeek. He had some business and wasn't sure he would be able to come as planned, but it all worked out. Therefore, today, I am the Domesticated Goddess. Got the floors vacuumed; uh huh, figured out the central vac. Geesh, you'd think I was born in the boonies. I've never had a central vac before--still not sure I like it. I've been snubbing my nose at it since we first got the house. Even bought a little electric broom to snub my nose even more. But, after being here for a week with the cat and dog, it was time to do some heavy duty vacuuming. I broke down. Used two--yes two--attachments. Whoa. One for the wood floors and one for the carpets in the guest bedrooms. Miso funny. Then I scrubbed the floors, which was truly needed. It looks fine, let me tell you.

We had storms Monday and Tuesday; and the water has been just a tad murky as noted above. We called it the Willie Wonka Milk Chocolate River. It cleared out yesterday so the kids jumped in it this afternoon. They said it was nice and cool. Sigh, sure wanted to jump in after doing the floors. I tell ya.

Baby Bella is doing well. She's a feisty little bugger. She is high strung for a bit then passes out. She loves doing the "crawdad" attacking you. I mean, she attacks and spits (thinks she's hissing). Little brat. Then I grab her, like a momma would, and calm her down. Trying to teach her not to be so aggressive. Gee. She normally calms right down and falls asleep.

This is one of her favorite spots in mom's room. She had the room to herself for a week. We moved her over to the kids' room last night because Raphi will be using mom's. Got it nice and sparkly clean. Yea!

Looks like it's nappy time down south. Even Bella is passed out, you can barely see her asleep on the nightstand. Awwww. Sweet summertime.
