Too early on a Saturday & this Cat-tip-for-the-day ain't no lemon.

The wind is blowing like blazes this morning and it woke Cali up, who then woke me up, who then woke up the household by having to have a coffee. The kitchen is dark but I can see the sun coming up. "What am I doing up so early? Once I'm up, I'm up.

 Oh, I can see a fight happening over this last tart today.
"Good morning, Sierra"

"aren't these pretty? I love them as much as I love pepper.".
"Hi there"
This is my kitchen window that looks over a tree farm. The plant is a lemon-balm and I know I have posted this before but you just have to try this in your herbal tea. Mmmmm.....lemon. Now wouldn't that lemon in my lemon tea go good with that lemon tart that is left over?

Cat-tip-for-the-day=^..^= Lemon as a natural skin tonic for fleas
Thinly slice a whole lemon, including peel. Add it to 1 pint of nearly boiled water and let it steep overnight. The next day sponge the solution onto the cats' skin and let it dry. It is a source of natural flea killing substances like d-limonene and other healing ingredients found in the lemon.

Have a wonderful Saturday, 
hugs, Deb


  1. A cup of tea and a lemon tart sound like a great start to any day!

  2. Hi my friend...your cozy wood post makes me want to get a fire going...sip some yummy tea and read a good book. Maybe that is just want I need to do today....<^_^>

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love that photo of the cat in your header. Reminds me of when my cat decided to try to sit in my vintage McCoy mixing bowl (which was ten sizes too small for his butt) and he toppled it over and broke it. Not sure what he was thinking that day.
