Two little bundles of furry energy showed up with my family.My sister Jessica gave up the last two babies from the most recent litter, so now we have kittens!They even came complete with water dish, food dish, and a bag of cat food.It gives one a rather old married feeling, to not only have plants and a bird feeder, but cats, as well.
A hint of fall is in the air, and it’s getting darker much earlier at night.The woodpile out front is soon going to be needed for more than just the kittens’ playground, so we’re searching the papers every week for a small but good wood stove. We’ve been eating nectarines for breakfast, making peach cobblers and crisps, and even a blueberry pie with the berries my family brought up.But the first of the apples are here now, and I’m looking forward to making my grandmother’s apple cake for Merritt to try, and maybe even venturing to try that old-fashioned apple tart recipe that was in my sister-in-law’s copy of Gourmet. But this morning, yesterday’s dishes are calling my name, and I need to make some Blueberry Buckle to serve the friends we have stopping in today. First of all, however, I will go give my husband a good morning kiss, and find out what he wants for breakfast.
