I walked in to my kitty-clients' home this morning to find them both with pressed noses against the window while seven squirrels dined on the bird-seed that had fallen from the bird-feeder. They were ecstatic and making that joyful chirping noise that cats make when they are about to pounce on prey. Then, they turned, saw me and came tearing over to welcome me as they always do when I arrive. Two tabby brothers. I've cared for them, while their owner travels for business, for years now. They prance around their food dish while I measure out their dinner and get so excited that they topple over each other. When I'm about to leave, we have a little ritual where I give them treats on the stairs. As I'm getting my coat on, they run to the stairway and sit on a step in anticipation of their 'dessert'. They flash me that 'innocent' look. They love the routine and I love them.

I laughed at some of the comments on 'tea etiquette'. I love reading all the 'tea-rules' but I follow none of them. I say..."Drink tea standing on your head, if you wish." It's tea...the nectar of the gods and we should all enjoy it thoroughly any way we please.
Well, within reason.
I received a new shirt today; a t-shirt, that is. It was from a give-away at Antiques and Tea-cups blog http://antiquesandteacups.blogspot.ca/that I won weeks ago. If you have not met Ruth, do drop by for a fun visit. I was thrilled to win this as I am a big Downton Abbey fan and one of my favorite characters is Mr. Bates. And yes, I want him freed since I feel he is innocent and well...'cause he's cute. :)
So, thank you Ruth for the t-shirt. I will wear it proudly and wait patiently to see Mr. Bates back in the arms of Anna.
