The Weekend

  3. Nugget sleeping behind the couch.  Jack laying like a slouch.
  4. Enjoying the grass that is lush green.
  5. Tiger, making sure by The Mister he's seen.
  6. Jack and his Shadow, pun intended.
  7. Weather vane points to where the wind sends it.
  8. More cat hugs and a drink that was smooth.
  9. Slate, who was really on the move.

  5. Oh my what a delightful weekend. Love that butterfly in orange crush. This morning I had a yellow butterfly by the balcony and didn't have my camera. I must remember to take it with me when I sit in the balcony in the early morning for my devotions. You brunch is making me drool as that would be my all time favorite brunch. And all the Zoo pictures are so cute, and the Mister too. It's warm this afternoon...I'll take one of those smoothies. We are relaxing after a month of rush, rush, rush.

  6. Looks like here and there
    Cats are found at your lair haha
    But that is nothing new
    Enjoyed them in view
    And poor Nugget got screen time too
    When he wasn't eating at your zoo
    About time I'd say
    Tiger sure looks happy at your bay

    1. Nugget is an old man now!
      Passed his life expectancy and how!
      Sleeps most of the day
      behind the couch at my bay.

    2. At least he's still alive and kicking
      Even when the cats are picking

    3. Must be all those organic greens he gets.
      Might get a long life record yet!

  7. Great shot of the flutterby as they used to be called.
    That brunch looks divine and the subsequent sandwich . . . . yummie!
    Cats everywhere . . . . . you could do your own stage production . . . . . lol
    Great shot of the moon . . . rarely seen better ones . . . :)

    1. Thank you for that.....the moon was beautiful! Glad I had a clear night to find it, too! ha.
      and yes, the food was good here this weekend, if I do say so myself! :)

    2. rarely seen better ones? You mean you have seen better ones? I don't believe it! haha.

      Delete
    3. I knew you would say that!! I really did!! lol . . . . but would you really believe me if I had said I have never seen better ones? hahaha

      Delete
    4. Yes! Because you haven't! lol....

    5. Oh! hark at her!! . . . . whose the clever one?
      Hey - they are good though - a lot of detail.
      Did you use a long exposure and a wide aperture? You held it very still. Have you got a tripod?

      Delete
    6. No, just a zoom and held it still. I don't have a tripod. Have to hold my breath, though. haha. Oh, and I rode a moon beam for a closer look. lol....

    7. Don't go too near . . . .the little green me may kidnap you! . . . lol

    8. They live on Mars, silly. It's just the Man in the Moon that's there!

    9. Not so sure . . . if your pictures get much sharper you might just see a little green hand waving to you by the side of a crater !! . . . lol . . . on vacation from Mars of course! :)

  8. Hee hee! Very cute poem there. :)
    And oh. my. your brunch looks divine! Do you fry the tomatoes with cheese or something? Yummy!
    And really, what makes your animals so photogenic? Whenever mine see the camera they usually stop whatever cute pose they were occupied in and just come at me in a charge, OR run for the hills! Do you make a bargain with them that if they come to stay, along with the shots and snipping and such, they MUST be obedient to the camera? ;)

    1. oh those tomatoes are SO good...thick slices on a cookie sheet...drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, onion and garlic powder and top with shredded cheese. I put them under the broiler until the cheese was brown and bubbling. I'm addicted!

      I set my camera on a fast shutter speed to take photos of the cats. You capture more good shots that way. And believe me, I delete more bad than good photos. lol....but still, it's easier to take pets than my boys! They actually cringe and close their eyes! That's why you don't see them very often. :)

  9. I like all your photos, but the cat hug one was REALLY special :-)

    1. These cats are just so affectionate! It really is sweet. When one comes inside and meows, the others come running to welcome him inside. It's extraordinary! And I never tire of seeing their tails wind together! haha...so funny!

  10. Oh that brunch hits the spot. I like it a lot.
    And Tiger, the dear, guards the Mister so near.
    Cat kisses, a tired bunny, that sammie looks nummy.
    Your weekend was blessed, with the moon at its best.

  12. How blessed you are to be surrounded by so many four-footed creatures! It looks like a heaven/haven on earth. I would never get anything done if I lived there; they would be so wonderfully distracting. Lynne in NC

I'm now posting exclusively on Women of a Certain Age. I hope you'll visit once in a while (in spite of my politics!). I always love hearing from you.

    1. Did you have clouds? That happened to me on the Strawberry Moon! So disappointing. You can move in...as long as you bring your pup with you. Does he like cats and rabbits? lol....what a question...he's a dog! Of course he does!
