Our little farm kitty that we've adopted is doing better each day with the food that our DIL Kristi gives him many times a day! We had a naming contest here on my blog and I asked Kristi to pick the name and she chose Simba. So, that is what we call him. I was worried that he would get cold in this windy weather so I found a "kitty igloo" bed for him on Amazon. It arrived yesterday. Kristi put it in the chair where he's been sleeping and we were so happy when he leaped right into the new bed. I asked Kristi to try and get a photo of him in the bed to show you.. and asked if she'd get a photo of the bed.. and that I'd give her 5 gold stars if she managed to get a shot of Simba IN the bed. :-)
She had to stand way back and act casual and quiet so as not to scare him away. He had a snack.. curled up in the sun by the door into the craft studio...
.. then he jumped right up into his cozy new bed and enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine. :-) When Kristi came in she told me she'd earned 10 gold stars! Maybe even 20! I think she did.. what do you think?
This was the shot she got last night with her phone as he got used to his new nest. Isn't he cute? Kinda looks like a photo bomber. :-)
I've been enjoying seeing the Christmas cactus in bloom on many of my blog friend's posts.. this is my "zygote" pot. I had 4 small plants but they all needed re-potted, so I decided to go big and bought this large pot and planted them all in it. It's looking good and growing, but not one bud can be seen. It may be putting all it's energy into growing roots and branches. We'll see. It's got a lovely place in the bay window behind our easy chairs in the den with light all day. One of the plants in the pot is one I rescued from my mother's room before she passed away. I cherish it.
I converted Kristi's swan image into a watercolor using the Waterlogue app. It think it tuned out kind of pretty.
We went shopping for the supplies to make our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. I picked out the most beautiful yams for from scratch candied yams and Russet potatoes for the mashed potatoes. Dayle picked out the onions, celery and parsley for his homemade stuffing. The 22 lb. turkey is ready in the fridge for morning. He got fresh sage and rosemary to put with butter under the skin for roasting. We got green beans and French fried onions for the green bean casserole and corn and sour cream for the corn casserole. And 2 dozen scissor rolls. I'll make the side dishes and gravy, Dayle does the turkey and dressing.
So.. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate.. and for those who don't, you might want to give a thought to taking a few moments tomorrow to give thanks for all that you have. I'll post some photos of the day on Friday.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
