Sorry its been so long since I blogged. I have been dragging around this summer, old age and high humidity etc. don't give much energy....plus a few health problems. On the other side of the coin, I am still having such a wonderful time with our cat. She is so much fun.
This morning the phone rang and when I answered...a man's voice asked to speak to Violet (our cat). I was so amazed I just said 'what?' and hung on the line.....dumbfounded! After a bit my husband started to laugh and then I knew it was him disguising his voice. We laughed and laughed at how gullible I am!
I am waiting for it to rain, it is so overcast outdoors and still...no breeze. Doesn't that mean rain?

We were at a pet store and the manager told us her Dad did not like cats when they were growing up...but the manager's brother was a paper boy who would pick up stray cats....one now and then...and bring it home in his empty paper bag. They ended up with 5 house cats! and their Mom would tell the Dad....that the new cats had been around.....maybe he hadn't noticed it! Loved her story.

The hanging baskets were so pretty when we brought them home--- now they look not as nice, just hanging! They said in the newspaper, we've gotten 3 more inches of rainfall than normal and gardens are being blighted by the unusual rains and then near 90 temps. It's hard to feel any energy in this heat, that's for sure. The begonia is my houseplant, and one my Grandma always had on her windowsill. Except she always made sure she had a live fishing worm or two in her begonia soil!

If you have time and love cats...watch these two videos. ( You have to scroll way down to see the videos, but they will make you laugh! : D ) This is our cat's next toy, thanks to these reviews. The Turbo Cat Toy.....what fun! I never dreamed in a million years....I'd love a cat =) but I sure do now. Did I blog that little story? Our cat Violet was a drop-off and we let her stay on our back porch....Until a raccoon started sharing the porch with her....eating her food and ripping up her toys. What an unpleasant surprise! Thats how she came to be allowed in the family room downstairs and we grew fond of her and all her endearing antics!

I love yellow, it it so cheerful. This one has seen better days, one of its seat boards rotted through and hubby will have to replace it. We are so behind on doing things outside. The rain and humidity saps our energy so quickly! But oh, the flowers! Their beauty tells of God's glory, surely. We planted seeds of cosmos that came up the richest red!
It's hard to type with a cat on your lap :). Our cat, Violet.....has completely won our hearts. She is so affectionate and fun. I am still knitting small wash cloths.....& then only at knitting group once a week, I confess. Sorry I have become such a lazy blogger, I get tired so quickly these days. I hope your summer is just right!
