In Percy's World

In Percy's world everything is a toy. He scans the room just looking for his next plaything.

I wonder who pulled that bulb off the branch.

It's a scratch

and sniff world.

And scratch, Percy no! He thinks that's his name, Percy No.

Then he gives me the who me? Innocent look.

As rambunctious as he is, he can steal my heart when he climbs in my lap and snuggles. He is a world champion snuggler and I can never resist that face!

Gosh I love these photos - how do you take them? My cats never stay still...he is simply gorgeous! xxx
I think what makes these photos so appealing to me is that Percy still has that kitten quality about him. Just a pretty kitty.

He is adorable!
But I know the feeling, like what will he get into next???
We adopted three young ones this year and some days our house (that I thought was pretty much cat-proof) is a disaster.
Christmas is such a wonderful and exciting time for a kitten!
May you and your little furry ones have a wonderful holiday season!

Haha .. I feel like we are living in a parallel universe, you with your Percy and us with our Baby! I'm sorry to hear that some of your delightful decorations got "percied"... Maybe next year it will be a bit safer for both of us to decorate! He is so gorgeous! He and baby have the same sweet (impish) faces - and share some similar markings. If she were gray and white rather than black and white, and had shorter fur rather than longer I would think they came from the same litter! Merry Christmas to you all!... 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 …
