Where are the kittens?

So we've been feeding Miss Marble for almost four weeks now and there's still no sign of her two kittens that had not been rescued.  My sister and I are sharing the feeding schedule.  Miss Marble is living the high life. Eating premium cat food and sunning herself on the deck of my sister's studio. Everytime we feed Miss Marble we ask her, "Where are the kitties?" Or as my sister says, "Miss Marble, show me the kitties!" Miss Marble is keeping Mum.

The little trickster will even throw us off by heading in the direction of one house, then when she thinks we've stopped watching, she'll head in the opposite direction. I have scoured the neighborhood but no kittens!  They would be at the age where they would be tagging along with Mum.  I don't want to think that something bad happened to them.

It remains a mystery.  In the meantime, we will continue to look after Miss Marble.  She's already looking better than when we first met her.  She's trusting us a little more and eventually she will have a home. We might know a few people who would be interested in her. Of course, all prospective parents will have to undergo a rigorous interview process with us. They will need to provide references and meet with our approval.  We take our job as foster moms very seriously!

Good job foster moms

That's to bad you can't find the kittens. Do you know how the ones you were able to capture are doing?

My mom STILL has 4 of her kittens. She says she's going to take them to the SPCA but hasn't. She loves them babies!

Glad to see someone is loving on Miss Marble : )

Oh what a sweet face...she looks a little like my Napoleon :)

Bummer about the kittens :(

What a blessing for you to take care of her...

Teehee! What a good home Miss M. is having the pleasure to stay in NOW! May you find the right family who will love her to pieces, as I know you have. Nature is remarkable. We have wild bunnies that make their home with us, and we do not mind, for we do not have plants in our garden that are CONSUMED by them as others do...and yesterday,I saw a rather plump rabbit going back and forth, back and forth...hmmmm, I thought. THEN, as I saw what I thought was her grazing in grass, she was furiously pulling up HUGE TUFTS of grass...she was making her NEST!!! SHE IS GOING TO HAVE HER KITTENS!!! So in the next couple of days, I will look in on the rabbit family and see what is going on there!

Thank you for coming to visit with such kind words about the photos and my music; it means a lot to me to get comments that reflect on my intentions...and that is to give my readers a chance to ponder over the emotions that I hope my words and photo choices evoke.

Have a magnificent BOSTON SUMMER DAY! (I lived in Beverly, S. Hamilton and Rockport during my 11 year stay there!)

I hope the kittens are okay. Sounds like you two have been excellent foster moms.

I've been following your blog for a while and enjoying a glimpse of New England life. Miss Marble is looking so much better and a bit friendlier as well. She and the kittens are so lucky that you and your sister found them.

Enjoy the fourth!

It all looks wonderful Elaine and is very reminiscent of what we non-Americans envisage the USA to be like.

I've always had a soft spot for New England in particular and I have no idea why!

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 …
