A Tale of Three Kitties

So now there are three kitties in the household. Which creates a state of chaos on most days. Oscar and Percy are getting acquainted.

And they like to rough house a lot! I am always afraid Oscar will clock Percy and send him flying. But Percy can give as good as he gets. He's pretty tough.

Recently, Oscar was enjoying an unusually mild October day.

Then Percy realized the window was open!

And he looked at me for approval.

He thinks the window is big enough for the both of them.

Oh no, he's found a new toy!

And he tries to eat it. He eats everything in sight!

Including his toy mouse. We play fetch with it.

Sometimes Oscar has to hide from Percy. He gets exhausted from Percy's non stop appetite for play.

Percy takes a break too. He must have broken a sweat.

Oops, he caught me snapping his photo again.

Please don't chew on the wood!

Thinking about what mischief he can get into next.

Oh there's Molly. She's no angel either. Watch the lamp Molly! Did you notice this lamp is different from the lamp in the previous photos? I took the tiffany lamp out of the favorite window of the kitties. I did not want it to get broken so I moved it to the hallway.

Molly likes to sit on her perch and watch the boys wrestle.

She thinks they're rather silly.

Nice Oscar, you know you're not supposed to sit on the table. Note the runner is turned up at the ends. Can't have fringe hanging where it can tempt kitties.

Oscar ignores my pleas to get off the table.

And he gives me that innocent look. Gosh he's cute!

At least he got off the table and now he's on the chair.

Meanwhile, Percy has discovered TELEVISION!

He is partial to football. Just like me.

He likes to get real close to the screen so he can feel like he's at the game.

Please tell me he's not scratching the screen!

No really, he can't scratch the screen right?

Molly was relaxing but then she felt like she was being watched.

She was annoyed but she will put up with it for now. I can hardly wait until we put the Christmas tree up!


How sweet are your cats? What fun you must have watching them tear through the house. Do they greet you when you come home and who is the loudest talker? Great photos!!!

What a delightful post!!!
They are all cute, but that little Percy is adorable.
I think they are exceptionally well behaved. At our house the lamps would have been toast long ago. And how can anyone scold them when they look at you with those sweet little faces.
Thanks for a great kitty update!

Never a dull moment at your house. I think Percy is going to love, love, love the Christmas tree!
Cats have so much personality! They are adorable! My cousin had 2 cats that attacked a wreath on her wall once, I'd be so worried about your beautiful lamps! But boy they are cute!

We came over from chocolate and marmalade tea and find your blog delightful, but then why would we not, seeing felines having a great time to the horror and delight of their parents.

Now a days I mostly sleep but I do remember those days when I had energy to play for hours on end.

Good idea about the lamp but then it is very rare that a feline bumps something to fall and break.

Wishing you all the very best,
Miss Kitty and Egmont (dad)

Oh - my - Gosh! And I thought I had it bad! hahahah This is so funny because tonight I am posting some of Baby's latest shenanigans! At least yours are all getting along. Tiger, who is 17, has still not accepted the fact that Baby lives here. She wants nothing to do with her and hisses at her constantly. And then we had another bit of excitement, but that will definitely be a future post! Your 3 are all just ADORABLE! And I can relate to so much of what you wrote - tablecloths are a thing of the past for the time being, just as your runner. Oh my gosh, kitties are just to funny!... Donna

Such good photos! They are very photogenic - esp gorgeous Molly! :) I love them all though! xxx
We have three cats as well. I think I speak on your behalf when I say that all the best people do!

Yours are adorable.

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 …
