Sweet Tea is a sweet as she looks. All of the 6 Pippa kittens continue to thrive and be adored.
*We are storming again here in Chicago land... the power went out so briefly this morning.....just enough to scare the bee jeebers out of me.. I dont want to lose power again for 3 days. Just not today please. IT is horridly hot and humid out. Ahhh, but things could be so much worse...I was pretty darn Amish for a few days last month
You'd think I would have stocked up on candles and batteries...but no. Too busy having fun in the summer sun to be responsible.
*So what did I do on my rare weekend off?
WEll I must have said I appreciated it about a thousand times all weekend. I would sigh and say, "ahhhhhh, I dont have to go to work today.....ahhhhh, I don't have to presleep."
For those of you in the 9-5 world, presleeping is of course, just like preheating an oven.
You presleep to get ready to work through the night. I'm a big Saturday afternoon pre sleeper.
*I had oodles of porch time. Loved every second of it. Despite the fact that not one hummingbird has come to my feeder or trumpet flowers, I kept a watchful eye. The bats did come in Friday night.
*We had a short campfire Friday night. Ahhh woodsmoke, just love the smell of it. Like camping but you have a bathroom within sprinting distance.....
*Went to the Farmers market and bought my favorite things. Saw a golden retriever puppy, 7 weeks of adorable age. Chloe....sigh. Huck is every where and no where these days.
*I started some socks with the gorgeous Wool that Katherine send me a few weeks back. It is
a bit springy......They are anklets.......
*I picked my neighbors rasberries and blackberries.......by invitation while they are vacationing of course. THen I told Fireman they;d be great over Vanilla Ice Cream....
just b/c I was on vacation of course....OMG. Is there a better dessert than fresh picked berries and hard pack ice cream from Oberweiss? Oh and we ate it on the porch while it was
steamy and breezeless last night.
* I napped each day. Delicious naps....
* I played with 6 crazy adorable kittens. Anyone want a wonderful pair of kittens that are loving and sweet and nothing like their mom???? Let me know.
