It’s Beginning To Look A Little Bit Like….Halloween!!!

Oh Halloween, my favorite holiday. It’s less than a month until the Halloween Blog Party!  Stores are stocking their costumes and decorations. The area farms have fields full of pumpkins, which is a good thing because I think I am only going to get a few from what I planted. (Note to self…plant more pumpkins next year!!!)   I am no farmer but I love growing pumpkins! I have been in the mood to decorate for Halloween but so far...

The Kitty’s Name Is……….

The Kitty’s Name Is……….

After much hard deliberation by our son, the name has been chosen.  Our kittens name is (drumroll……….)  Shadow.  It has turned out to be the perfect name as he follows our gray cat, Leo, everywhere.  Leo has been quite tolerant of the whole ordeal but they have their moments too. All in all, the cats are getting along much better than I had expected.  Monday night they all were quite calm so I got a few pictures of...
