We had sun, then rain, and then more sun!
I picked strawberries and made lemon sugar cookie bars.
I did dishes and laundry and ate sweet cherries.
I mixed up some cilantro-lime-cumin butter
for that sweet corn, and talked to Velvet on the porch swing.
She's the mother to nine of my cats but she won't let me pet her
and she has that look like she doesn't trust anyone.
I think she must have been abused before coming here.
She knows I won't hurt her and has let me touch her kittens
but I'm not allowed to pet her! Little by little she is becoming
more relaxed and even lay on the foot of the bed the other
day while I sat there having coffee before getting up.
It seems that Slate is star struck over Grey!
Yesterday, they saw me on the front porch from a few houses
down and came running home together like a
scene from the movie Homeward Bound.
He just lights up when she's around and follows her everywhere!
And Hilary, here's the other side of my tea cup that you wanted to see!
Taylor and Lauren will be here for dinner soon.
Need to shuck sweet corn!
Enjoy your evening!
