Projects . . .

It’s a beautiful day here on the Island – sunny and warm. 

We have lots of projects happening around here today.

  • Painting – house and deck – just about finished. New shutters and window boxes almost ready to go on. I’m glad to see the sun –  the painting was started in July… 
  • Pickles – A double batch of diced cucumbers and onions are on the counter waiting to be cooked in a sweet mustard sauce – mmm mm – recipe here   I hope to have a picture of a shining row of bright yelow mustard pickles for you later today.
  • Project  –  “Get Used to Sophie”  – this is ongoing. We made a little progress yesterday.  I decided to try a more indirect approach since the last attempt to make friends ended up with kittens hanging from the tree.

     I let them get used to one another through the porch door.  

Sophie is not happy. She loves to be outside. Note the injured look.


 Kittens move in to investigate –  Is this creature safe?

 The intrepid Lily gets even closer.

I’m planning to try stage 2 today – letting them all out together.

I’ll report back later with all my project updates.

Hope you’re enjoying a lovely September day!

  1. We always had barn cats when I was growing up–now my husband is allergic to cats, and I miss them! The new family members look so sweet. We had two with very similar markings, a boy named named Scutterbotch and girl named Persephone. (I had just fallen in love with D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths!)Can’t wait to see/hear how your projects turned out, too!Also, I loved your sweet thank-you in the last post–and want to say thank YOU for your comments, prayers and encouragement. I count you as one of my "special friends" in the blogosphere!Love–Jeanne
