Poster I came across this the other day and thought... yep, that's true.
Julie sleeping on her spot. She was upset with me because I moved her spot off the counter while I made cookies today. Just gave it back to her.
And Tux was playful today... lying around on his back playing with his toys.
And THIS is what we saw the other night sleeping in the feral cats' bed on the front porch... a fat ol' possum just making himself at home. Today we went out and swept off the porch, took away some of the extra box bedding, and will spray and wash the cushions.
Well, I started this yesterday and was interrupted, so continuing today. The possum from above came back again last night. He doesn't stay all night... seems to nap a few hours and then takes off again.
As you can see, Saturday we cleared off all the other beds and wind breakers we had on the porch for when it was really cold. Now we just left the little bed... and apparently it is appreciated.
Here is a picture of the cookies I made. My grand daughter's favorite color is pink... thus, the pink rabbits, carrots, and stars.
|tea cakes and caramel cookies|
The pink ones were just iced almond tea cakes, the others were stuffed with home-made caramel sauce. Grand daughter (5) told me that I made the best sugar cookies... that I should make one as big as a house. I asked her why... who would eat a cookie that big? A giant? She said, "no, silly... me!"
And grandson (19) who is visiting with us right now said that those cookies were very nostalgic for him. He remembers the taste from when he was little. (Side bar actually shows a picture of him helping me make those years ago when he was about 4).
OK... just went off to meet a friend for coffee and found that the Starbucks we were meeting at was 'out of power'. Apparently the whole section of stores on that strip were out... due to the thunderstorm we had during the night or perhaps the high winds??
So we talked for a little standing outside our cars and decided to try again in a week or two. It's pretty chilly and overcast today - and we like to sit outside, so hopefully in a week or two the spring weather will have arrived... (we hope).
Wishing you all a happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by and praying you all get beautiful spring weather soon!
