Make the bed? Why, thank you...I'd love to.

I managed to pop into the Log Farm (antiques) on Sunday for just a few minutes. Just long enough, though as I came home with my first blue & white tea-cup and 5 silver tea-spoons. Pretty? I think so.
This is my new favorite tea-cup.
It is called Countryside, Wedgewood and made in England. It holds a lot of tea for a cold day like today. Yes, it is still cold here..stop laughing. I believe our Summer came and went.

If you are a  cat owner,  you will understand when I tell you that making your bed in the morning may take a few tries before it actually looks good, if ever. I always remove the duvet, pull up the sheets and then place a clean towel over-top so if the cats lie on the bed the hair stays on the towel. Just getting that done could take some time.
Here's why.... between the towel and the sheet appears this..
who thinks I cannot see her. Out.of.her.freakin'.mind, this cat is.  Did I mention she's a lunatic?  I may change her name to Demente. (Insane in Spanish)
Then her ever-so-gentle and quiet little mom appears with a toy of some sort and decides to play with it on the bed. Why? Because I am in the room and where I go..she follows. So, some days I give up.
I've actually given up on a few things until 'monkey' grows up. I know one thing for sure...we need to move a lot of our 'out-door' plants out to the deck 'pronto' or she'll be digging her way to China, next. And all my jewelery is tucked away safely in a drawer since discovering that she loves 'all shiny objects'. She's a jewel-thief,  I tell ya. Oh yes, and she likes to shred all paper so the newspaper, paper-towels, toilet-paper, kleenex....need I say more.

hugs, Deb

  2. What is it with cats and beds? Whenever it's time to change sheets, EMily and Naomi magically appear from nowhere and throw themselves on the bed. They then proceed to go crazy under the sheets as we try to make the bed... hopeless, but hilarious.

    Love that Audrey!

  4. Love this post, Deb. It's always a good day when I get to see Audrey and Annie in the same post. I remember when I had to keep the coffee table clear because our kitten would jump from the sofa onto the coffee table, making the cloth slide off and everything with it--plant, china cup, etc. And I still have to be careful of any random small object. His paws can't resist pushing anything small onto the floor. You sure are lucky to find all these wonderful teacups. Enjoy that tea and don't lose hope for warmer weather.

  5. Hi Deb: Our old Annie that we used to have would play hide and seek with me when I made the bed. It was annoying and fun at the same time..Happy Sunday..Judy
