Time to cozy-up.

It's time to fluff up the blankies and stick them in the ever-loved, chewed-up cardboard boxes.
They must pass inspection in our home.
I'd say this one passed.

It's getting cooler outside for the next few days so kitties must stay warm and cozy. They just must.

What makes you warm and cozy? For me it's a hot cup of tea and a yummy snack.

Like this lemon poppy-seed loaf cake with black tea. I add a little milk but no honey this time.

Because this cake has an icing layer it is sweet enough.
My blue and white dishes come out for the colder season, too. They are a favorite all year round for me.

Most are kept in my little french country cupboard.

Audrey wants to say "Howdy" and show you that she can look normal and quite sophisticated.
She sure has grown into a beauty. A brat, mind you, but a beauty.

hugs, Deb

  5. That cake looks too yummy! I'd probably end up eating the whole thing in a day.
    Audrey looksore and more like a Russian Blue. Quite elegant, our girl.

  6. Cozy kitties, tea and cake! What Purrfect day! Oh Audrey is a beauty, lol, but no angel!

  7. Is there anything quite as beautiful as a peacefully sleeping cat? I think not.

    It's been awhile since I've had a lemon loaf cake like that...

    This is a rarity... Audrey not glaring or rolling her eyes! She is such a beautiful kitty.

  8. Your cats are adorable! I enjoy a hot cup of tea and if I'm very cold I have an electric blanket.

  9. Sierra looks so comfy and Audrey -- gorgeous and audacious!


  10. Maddy has taken to sleeping in the recycling box in Chris' office. I lined it with two thick towels today.I'm guessing she won't be grateful.

  11. I don't know - to me Audrey looks like she's holding something in her mouth so no one can see. Like a little kid with a stolen candy. Or is that her "Butter won't melt in my mouth" look? LOL!!

  12. What beautiful cats looking very content. Love your blue collection, a favourite type of china for me.

  13. Oh my the first kitty is so cute all snuggled up with her blankie. I love your blue dishes and your cupboard is gorgeous! Some kitties are just spoiled rotten. lol!

  14. I'll bet Audrey is a she? She just has that look about her....My Jinx is a talker......when i would come home from work we would talk about our day...He answers my every question with a 'Meow'... :) Hugs! deb

  15. Oh Ms. Audrey, your eyes are so very lovely.
