Enjoyed perfect weather this weekend although I did not join Lisa at her beach stand or Johnny and friends at the beach. Instead John and I worked in the yard. We mulched my vegetable/herb garden and set up the little fountain. Got it looking all spiffy.
John and I seriously could not believe how perfect the weather was. As I was cleaning up at the end of the day I could hear an owl hooting off in the distance. Just as I was going in a mist started rolling in. It was beautiful with the sun setting and all.
I cut some more peonies. I got them coming out of my ears! Not complaining.
I even got several good pictures of my cat Blue. She does not like to be photographed. She is THE best cat in the world but things MUST go her way and her way only. She will request to be scratched but fulfilling this request is not for the timid. She will settle in on your lap and purr away as you do the job and when she has had enough, with no warning she will bite you. Nothing serious but she could just get up and leave. I love her dearly though. She is 8 years old. A barn cat. She won't stay in the house. When I first moved here there were quite a lot of mice and some field rats. I was not used to that having grown up in the suburbs. I was more then freaked out. She has it all under control. Nothing gets by her.
Yesterday I finally got some inspiration for a certain someone's "deck treat". I had been working on a couple ideas but I just wasn't feeling them. My mother gave me an idea that sent me in a completely different direction and that wasn't working either. Sometimes inspiration just isn't there. I was determined to get it yesterday though and searched and searched and by the end of the day I had some drawings I loved and ordered a few things. So soon "deck treat" recipient, soon.
