Quick trip to South Texas...


Sorry if I haven't offered a comment in a while, we've been off visiting relatives in South Texas (and watching football games - LSU/Old Miss, etc.).  I brought my crochet and knitting so that as they watched, I could keep my hands busy.  And of course we ate... snacks, desserts, seafood... lots of seafood! We had a wonderful Red Snapper dish at a restaurant right near the water.

Anyway, we're back now and I'm doing 'catch-up' on everyone's postings this past week and weekend. And of course we're trying to apologize to the cats for leaving them in the hands of our sons for the last few days. They were well taken care of... but are always affronted by our audacity to leave them for any period of time.  It will take a few days of 'extra attention' for them to forgive and forget.

Sunday Cat

This is Sunday Cat... a little flame point Siamese with the prettiest blue eyes.  She is about 2 years old and lives with relatives we were visiting... along with 2 other felines (who stayed hidden for the most part).

And this is the Night blooming Cereus with it's fantastic blooms.  We have had this plant over the years, but have never ever seen multiple blooms like this! We counted 22 blooms all in one night on 2 plants.  It was amazing.


  1. How wonderful! I love the blue eyes of the Sunday cat, and your blooms. Welcome back! :-)

  2. Yes, I see Jack is not speaking to you. At least for the moment. Welcome back.

  3. It is nice to get away and then nice to get back home. Cats are funny about being left alone. They want to be excited at your return, punish you for leaving, and act like the don't care at all==all at the same time.

  4. Glad you had a nice trip, Rian, but I know what you mean about cats taking the huff when left behind. Ours didn't use to forgive us for weeks!

  5. Cats are funny creatures. Some have more 'cat-itude' than others, but in the end, they always forgive.


Thanks for reading and commenting! It makes my day...
