Percy's Photo Shoot

I hoped to have some foliage shots to post but I think the color is supposed to peak next weekend so you might have to wait. So of course I decided to turn my camera on the kitties.

Percy is interested in the camera so he was good subject. Here he thinks he's King of the Hill. I removed the birdcage from the table since it was knocked down once and I figured it wouldn't be the last time.

He is such a handsome boy!

He's scanning the room to see what trouble he can get into.

Oops, that is a little dark!

This is his guilty look.

And here he is with his favorite toy, a mouse. Ew, every time I pick it up it's wet! Then the other day I saw him drop it in his water dish and swish it around. He washes it before he plays with it!

And here's his beauty shot. Yup, it's going in his portfolio.


He is SO beautiful! Wow! :)♥

Percy is too cute for words! That new (vintage) sofa of yours just lends itself to elegant photoshoots!!

Okay, you either have a much better camera than I do or Percy sits still longer than our Baby does because most of the photos I try to take of her are blurry streaks! Hey, maybe I should go ahead and do a post on that! How are Molly and Oscar adapting to having Percy around? I'm afriad our Tiger is still hissing like crazy and not one bit happy about Baby. It's been a couple of months now and I honestly thought she would have accepted Baby's presence by now... Donna

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
