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!
