I swear to you, I’m not trying to sell you uber-fancy alarm clocks or anything. I just really really want this clock. Specifically, I want the nature sounds this clock makes. Not all of them (there are four I think)… just the ocean one and the windchime one. I want those really, really bad. I’m a little obsessed about it actually.

Last week, Johnny LikeSoundsToo and I spent two luxurious nights at this very fabulous little inn, The Harbour House Hotel, in Niagara-On-the-Lake. It was wonderful… wonderful!… and I took 90 gazillion pictures and I will show you some, I really will, but I have to download the other 360 gazillion photos I currently have on my computer before I can upload the 90 gazillion Niagara-On-the-Lake ones and I haven’t had a chance to do that yet. On the bedside tables, they had these deluxe clocks and those sounds… the windchimes and the ocean… o, I loved them. The windchime one makes me feel deliciously goose-fleshed … like something enchanting and unexpected is about to happen. And the ocean sounds? Well, they made me feel all seaside and serene. A pretty good way to feel. Of course it was all in enhanced by the Harbour House decor, but still… I pretty sure I could recapture that feeling at home if only I had this clock. Or more specifically, those sounds. Those EXACT sounds (I’ll except no substitutes).

yup.

This is Alfie. Alfie’s picture made me snarf coffee out my nose and all over my screen. You know, in a good way. If Alfie didn’t live in England and the Handsome Guy wasn’t so incredibly allergic to cats and the woofie desperately afraid of cats (and thunder), I would totally sneak into that garden and nab him. Totally. dude!

So be warned, Alfie’s owner (Posy)! Your cat is incredible nabbable (is that a word even?!) I am coveting him from afar.
