Maddie and Cassie are still ready, and also still hanging out with me. Maddie developed a skin condition over the weekend and in her desire to be properly groomed for her forever family, she licked herself into a cone. She saw the vet yesterday and she’s on the road to a complete recovery, for the moment sans cone. Both girls have been very helpful this week, even if they didn’t feel their best. Maddie needs to work on her typing skills.

These three are quite the group of climbers, already up in the sink and windowsill and moving too fast for me to get anything other than blurry photos! The only thing that seems to keep them still at the moment is when a fly invades. They were mesmerised!

During each colour shift, it seems almost everything I acquire ends up that colour. It isn’t conscious I Continue Reading »
Yesterday we took Shadow to his annual checkup. He was cranky I tricked him into the carrier but he likes our veterinary practice and was very good as she examined him.
He received a clean bill of health and we’re impressed that he even lost an ounce (Buddy is keeping him active) and is about 12lbs.
My favourite part of summer cooking is the fresh herbs I have easily accessible to add to our meals. While I dry and put away a considerable apart of my harvest, it is nice to have fresh. I didn’t plant as much this year and neglected to plant a few things, but what I have Continue Reading »
