Letting sleeping kitties lie


It's that time of year when I start to think about decorating for Christmas. I would love to have a full size tree but with 3 kitties to consider that is not a wise choice.  Percy has knocked over lamps, broken teacups, and is basically a one man wrecking crew.
 

Molly is fascinated with shiny objects and there is a lot of bling on a Christmas tree. No I probably shouldn't put up a big tree.


She did not knock the tree over but she wanted that doll and maybe an ornament or two.


Yes, it would be best if I let sleeping kitties lie.

Sweet pictures of your kitties! I can sympathize with what you go through with ornaments on the tree...one year Buster actually climbed up the tree to get at the ornaments! And now there's Harvey...sigh.

We haven't had a tree in years because of the kitties. We have six.
This year our son and DDIL just moved in with us bringing three more kitties.
Our son is very excited about decorating and putting up a tree. We shall see...

The picture of Molly stretching up to look at the tree is adorable. What a cute little furry body!

BTW, you always decorate so beautifully, with or without a big tree.
Enjoy the season!

They are so very cute! But - they can certainly wreak havoc in a short time!

I just bought a Norfolk Island Pine to sit on a table in the living room. Soft fabric or light weight wood ornaments will be all I use. I am hoping the kittens will just look and then ignore. Yes I hope. And I also believe in Santa Clause.

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I am catching up with your blog today.

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 …
