Those quirky kitties

Never a dull moment in my household. Sometimes it's like having 3 kids, toddlers at that.  There's Oscar about to steal my shoe.

And Percy is where he shouldn't be. I've told him a hundred times not to sleep on the cable box.

Obviously Molly is copping a catitude. She's giving me her backside. She must not have liked something I said. It's probably about the late hours she's been keeping.

And Percy thinks he's King. He thinks he's the boss of me but he's not.

When I see them all in the same room together I think 3 cats is a lot.  But I can handle it. Most days.

I think Percy may be in love with your stack tables. He knows a good thing when he sees it.

The kitties look like so much fun.

so cute...what are you guys planning?

Your kitties are so sweet and beautiful, Elaine. All of them look very well cared for. When we had 3 cats I didn't think it was to much, but my husband did. Maybe it was because we had 2 dogs also. You think?

Well,....I love all three of your kitty kiddos...but Percy has my attention this post :))
What a cutie!!

Have a wonderful weekend...!

Off to bed for me, I am speaking at an event tomorrow! Exciting but need some shut eye:))

They are beautiful! I give you credit, that's why Duke is an only child! LOL!!! We thought of a 2nd dog . . . but I don't think I have the patience for it. They are a lot of work, but I wouldn't trade him for anything! Pets are wonderful, especially when they make us smile, which is every day!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for your visit to my corner of the world. I can see you are a cat lover, too. Percy, Oscar and Molly are beautiful! Jingles is our indoor kitty. Then I have outdoor kitty who lives in our stairwell. And the new black Persian who showed up yesterday but will have to be taken to the shelter. Jingles is not very accepting of others in her territory. I also feed about 5 street cats every day. The shelters are overwhelmed and most of these cats are feral so can't actually get close to them. But they wait for me every morning to feed them so they know who I am. It's funny when I am driving down the street and they see my car and start chasing it home so they can have a meal. Poor kitties! Have a great week. Tammy

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 …
