Oh my!

Someone is walking now. Look out, world.

I have a kitty to care for this morning, other than the six at home, that is, and then we are off to the property again for the day. Speaking of the six at home, our four and two free-loaders, they are getting along better now and Joe has learned that he just has to keep his distance from 'the girls' or he gets a blow to the face. Rae-Rae & Joe spend hours together grooming and snoozing so there is no need to feel sorry for him. He is truly loved by the glamorous one here.

Our maple tree at the house is quickly thinning out from the morning breeze as the ground becomes covered with Autumn leaves.
The maples at our property are still turning colour so I hope to capture that on this beautiful first day of October.

Enjoy your day.
hugs, Deb

2 beauties

Rae-Rae loves my violets. She has been keeping this one company for some time now and it is starting to bloom once again.

If she could, she would own a garden of her own.
I imagine it would be a beautiful garden as each flower would grow to the sound of her purr. 
And let me tell ya, she loves to purr.
And other than it being covered in her floof...
this is the prettiest violet of all.

hugs, Deb

Changing leaves

We were out in the country again today so I snapped a few pictures of the leaves that are in full colour. I love it here in the Fall.

Maple trees surround our little spot and they seem to change in colour at different times. In a couple more days I imagine they will all be at their best. 

No sign of the mystery kitty today. I even walked around looking for him but to no avail. I did spot a black and white one sitting on a wood-pile next door, though.

Kane spent much of his day watching men work.
                                                                  Just chillin'

When we returned home, Audrey was asleep under a blanket in a Fancy Feast chicken and liver cardboard box.
Apparently, from what she tells me, she has been there all day. Well, I'm too pooped to look for evidence tonight. I don't believe a word of it, though.

Did I mention we are having the most amazing Fall weather so far? It's heaven.

Ticked-off kitty ticks off 'to do' list.

"Oh, today we suffer."

We've been left alone again and told to keep ourselves busy but stay out of mischief. AND...don't put cat-hair all over the furniture. I feel that if she doesn't want cat-hair on her,  she should stay off the furniture. Are you with me on that, folks?

So, we have the house to ourselves again and if only I had thumbs I could do a bit of redecorating. Lordy, this house needs it. I need to order more cat-trees.

So, have a nice day everyone. I've got a 'to do' list to start ticking off. First, it's to personalize a bed quilt. Oh ya!

Some can wear a hat.

While cooking, I love to have the company of a cat in my kitchen.

But my cats like to take this task much more serious than some. Like Sierra, for instance.
She's always been a 'hat girl'. I, on the other hand, am not. I'm a little jealous that she can throw any hat on her head and look mawwwwwvelous.

We celebrated our little grandson, Brad's, 2nd birthday today. He is the most adorable little guy and was so excited to open so many wonderful gifts. He will be one busy boy this week. The party was held at a cottage on this gorgeous, warm, Fall day.
                                          My son, John, Bradley, Brittany and Riley.

He's a big fan of helicopters, trucks, trains and a certain monster that he loves from a movie.
And....he got a new hat, too. I do believe he is a 'hat man'.
                                "Happy Birthday Brad".
hugs, Deb

In hopes of a cherry pie.

Today we were out cleaning up around the property again and planted the cherry tree from Riley and Bradley. Today is Brad's 2nd birthday so it will be easy to remember the date. We decided to plant it right where the old log building stood. We'll be seeding the ground and adding wildflowers next Spring. I hope this tree loves it out here. I can't wait to bake that first cherry pie for the grand-kids.

Oh yes....we had a visitor. You knew we would, didn't you? Over the stone wall he came when he heard us walking about. I think he looks forward to our visits and watches for us now. The retired-guy thinks he is a girl. Well, it is hard to tell with this cat so I'm sticking with calling him Davey for now. You know...King of the wild frontier. He was such a character today; keeping me amused while I raked & moved rocks around. Look at this mug...
 All you have to do is touch him and he falls over.
I still don't know where he lives for sure but I'm starting to think he might be our next door neighbour. :)
I brought him out some kibble today and he wasn't all that interested. He had two bites and went off in search of a tasty mouse.

"Happy 2nd Birthday to our grandson, Bradley."
These grand-kids sure are growing fast. 
We'll be celebrating on Sunday.

hugs, Deb
