I'm posting just a few random photos tonight. I took this photo of the mums and gourds on a very rainy day a couple of weeks ago. The rain has finally stopped but we've had a dusting of morning snow and cold temperatures for the past two days. If the roads stay clear for the holiday travel we'll be very thankful.
Thanksgiving is just 2 days away and we're eagerly anticipating having all the family together. Expecting a houseful of company is great incentive for me to give the house a good cleaning. Believe me, I can think of a million things I'd rather do than housework, but once I get in the mood I rather enjoy it. So that's all done, leaving me free to do the fun part....cooking!
I can't wait to see those 2 little grandsons again!
Pepper was feeling very playful the day I took this photo back in late September. This is just one of about 6 shots I took of him. Cats can be such good subjects...sometimes....when they stop still for a few seconds.
Here are Tink and Fiona in early October, enjoying the late afternoon sun while waiting for dinner. Those lovely days of warm sunshine were few and far between this fall, so were much appreciated when we were blessed with them.
Sheba and Zoey sat in the barn window soaking up the sun after they'd eaten. Sheba spends a lot of time washing herself. She's one of the cleanest cats I know! Pepper, Abigail and Tink are Zoey's kittens. Someday I must show you a picture of them when they were tiny back in May. Sadly, one afternoon not long after I took this photo I found Zoey dead on the front lawn. I think she must've been hit by a car and just managed to get off the road, poor kitty. She was one of the sweetest, most affectionate cats we've ever had. We were so sad to lose her.
Here are Max and Fiona, cute as can be....
....and Annabelle, Tink and Fiona.
I threw in this one of Kathy with a nice crop of pumpkins in 1987 just because it seemed appropriate for this time of year.
We have so much to be thankful for!
