What made you smile today?

For me, it was watching Annie  claim the tray I placed on the ottoman while being photo-bombed by the cushion cat.

My first beefsteak tomato. Just in time for veggie burger night.
They are one of the largest cultivated tomatoes.

This beautiful book that I love to look at over and over again.
It is candy for the eyes.
Gifts from the Herb Garden by Emelie Tollley & Chris Mead. 

The sun is shining and the humidity is all but gone. 
It's a beautiful morning to hit the market for some fresh produce, just out-of-the-oven oat bread & maybe some blueberry scones. :)

And I have some news. *smiling from ear to ear*

Our little Gwynn will be a big sister soon.
We are expecting our fourth grandittle in February.
"Congratulations" to our daughter & her hubby.

Now...what made you smile today?

  1. This Post of course....HeHe! Creep! Creep!
    Actually my first smile was looking out the back door,
    and seeing Flossy sitting on the patio table, at 6:30
    waiting for her saucer of milk...Giving me that old dark,
    black look, and saying...'where've you been'...! :). Bless!

    And, yes, congratulations to daughter and hubby...great
    news...Must be something in the air over there...! :).

    Started with a BIG smile, so lets finish with one...! :)))))))).
    Happy Days......!x

  2. This post made me smile! Love the Annie pics and big fresh tomato's are always a treat but the best news of course is the new Grand Little! Congrats! I am having the best time cuddling my sweet Rosemary, nothing like a baby!

  3. Congratulations on your news ... a new grand little on the way ... what could be better???? (Maybe an Audrey clone????!!!!!) Nothing better than a home grown tomato. Annie is such a peach...!!

    Hugs and Purrs....

  4. Congratulations! Good news indeed for all! It's fun to visit again -- I've been on and offline a lot and so behind. Rick made it to Ottawa but I never got that far -- crazy summer but a delightful one! Fun to see your brood again!

  5. Gorgeous cats - beautiful tomatoes………..or beautiful cats - gorgeous tomatoes! Either way it looks perfect there Deb.

    Annie's looking like a sweetheart.

  7. One of the things that made me smile was seeing pictures from my son and his family's camping trip and how much fun they had.
    And another would of course seeing the post :-)

    Congratulations on the news of the coming grandlittle!
    Hope your weekend is filled with smiles

  8. Congrats on the joyous news! Give your gorgeous mum-to-be daughter a big hug from us.
    Annie's facial coloration makes her look like she's glowing from within. Or radiating an inner light. Something quite ethereal about your girl there is.

  9. What made me smile today? The outside threesome... skinny mama, Termite (her tiny kitten), and Polly ( 6 month old kitten from another feral mama that took her other kitten and left Polly alone in our yard. Now these 3 have formed their own little family!
    Beautiful cat pics! And congrats on being a grandma again!!

  10. Congratulations, how exciting. Love the photo bombed picture xx

  11. What made me of your family's upcoming blessing. Gail

  12. That's a cute selfie ! and the tomatoes look so yummy ! Congratulations too !

  13. Dearest Deb,
    Thank you for your visit to the Cat Dining Room!
    Got way behind due to my PC having died on Tuesday... Got my new iMac but it takes a while before things work smoothly again.
    What made me smile today... That I woke up with a restored back, having had severe back pain the past couple of weeks. Knowing that I did too much but so glad I pulled off a successful Etiquette Class for 11 girls + dinner at our home on the 15th and last night another dinner for 6 at our home. Now I can relax... PC time as it pours cats and dogs. We have had some very wet days lately.
    Your news is certainly great news to look forward to! Blessings to your family and also for your fur babies.

  14. A new little wonderful! That will certainly brighten up your dull winter February, won't it? :)

    Your tomatoes look wonderful!

  15. Hurrah! Another new little baby on the way. He or she will be born with a great start with wonderful parents and grandparents. Very good news.

  16. So exciting about the fourth grand-little. You must be so excited!

    Love that Annie.
