Have you wondered why I haven't posted about Jenny's cat George? Well, much to my disappointment, he stayed just three nights and after Jenny and Scott had an offer on their house she took him back. He was SO homesick. He kept finding new places to hide in our basement and he WOULD allow me to hold him, pet him, and feed him, but he was angry and the minute he could, he'd jump down and hide again. Now he is back with his people and happy as can be. Good boy.
I took Plum to the pet store and we cuddled two girl kitties, one fluffy black one and a bold little brown tabby. I. Wanted. To. Take. One. Home.
And now George is back guarding the chickens.
Jenny had to take her rooster to the feed store and say a sad good bye. Isn't he handsome? You can't have roosters in neighborhoods for obvious reasons.
On this calm Saturday morning, I am waiting for Bill to return from Jeff and Christie's with little James in tow. He will cuddle with us, eat his breakfast, and then we'll stroll down to the park to play. We're early birds.
Here is a cake baked for a sweet soul like you. I'll grab your tea.
And because the cozy season is right around the corner, here is a Brambly Hedge snuggly picture for you!
And the blue ribbon fruit of autumn - lovely pumpkin.
And here's a picture of my birthday party later this month. Smile. Beautiful Brambly Hedge.
God be with you as you go about your business this weekend. Labor Day weekend here in the USA is much appreciated. Monday off. I certainly adored this little September vacay when I was teaching.
This morning I had a blissful eucalyptus bath and when I am deliciously warm in the tub, I think of Corrie ten Boom and her release from prison camp. Her description of her first bath and a clean bed will stay with me forever. I am so thankful for sweet comforts.
I think sweet potatoes and yams are beautiful inside and out and I think YOU are beautiful inside and out, too!
(BIG HUG!) Thank you very much for your kind visit.
