Halloween 2014 is approaching...

Happy Halloween 2014!
(almost...)


As most of you know from my blogs, we're very fond of cats here... especially black cats... especially this little black cat! (our youngest grand daughter)

She is also very fond of cats herself as you can see from this video:

And her mom said that she insisted her toenails be painted for Halloween too! (I am glad that she painted them pink and not black...)

such tiny precious toes...

As Halloween gets closer, I'm getting ready to bake my Pumpkin Custard Pie.  DH has been wanting pie ever since we started this SB diet. It's gone rather well... although with 2 birthdays and Halloween, it has had it's setbacks. But I will make the pie tomorrow as it is tradition here at our house.

And our oldest son just spent a few days down in New Orleans for his birthday. They should be back any day now and I'm anxious to hear of their adventure. I hinted at some of my favorite haunts when I'm there (but it's my home-town so I look at it differently). I recommended Cafe Du Monde for beignets and cafe au lait, Tujaques for po-boys, Central Grocery for Italian seed cookies as well as mufalattas and stuffed artichokes, Jackson Square and the Cathedral, walking along the Mississippi river, the Aquarium, Aunt Sally's, Court of Two Sisters, Pat O'Brien's and Preservation Hall. These should keep them busy in the French Quarter for a few days.

Italian sesame seed cookies

* I enlarged my font here also. Do you think it's too big? I can make it back to normal which is this size... what do you think? *

Also our neighborhood has had a rash of *solicitors* (some of whom haven't been very polite) lately. DH and I do not open our front door unless we know the person standing there. We have a camera out front. But listening to some of our neighbors texts lately, we decided to put out a "no soliciting" sign. There are quite a few of them on Etsy, but we chose one that mentioned "to smile at the camera".  Once it arrives, I will post a picture of the one we chose.

And lastly I saw this recently on Pinterest and had a good laugh! This hasn't happened to our black feral mamas yet... that I know of anyway.

  2. Your granddaughter is just precious beyond words. So adorable!

    Oh, all that wonderful food...Yum. I want your pie too. LOL.

    RE: Your enlarged font, it's not too big for my middle-aged eyes that need glasses, but then, I usually have to enlarge what I read anyway. (That's why I love my e-reader so much!)

    Cute cat/kitten pic. :-)

    1. Thanks, Dee. That's 3 for the larger font! And yes, as for the black mama with the white kittens, we would really be surprised since most of the Toms in the neighborhood are black also. And the camera at the front door does come in handy...

    1. Thanks, knatolee. She didn't keep her kitty ears on for long... but she loves having her face painted.
