August 1 Celebrations





Today is the Celebrations blog hop by VikLit .  Come join us: the information is below.  Join us!

Today I am celebrating:

1.  The delicious continuation of a break in hot weather.  So lovely to be able to wake up with a quilt over me and a cat at my feet.

Cup with Agapanthus
2.  drinking my morning tea out of a cup decorated with agapanthus, which I call 'aspidistra' because 'aspidistra' has an almost Dr. Seuss-like sound.

Little Miss Mess with Photobomb



3.  A road trip to a cat show with Little Miss Mess (so-called because she takes no nonsense from the two big boys in the household) is scheduled for this weekend.  Probably her last since while she does love going into the public and flirting with children and passers-by and going up on judging tables and blowing kisses to the crowd, she is now ten years old and perceptibly slowing down, though she still whacks the males in the household on the backside.

4.  The weekend.

What are you celebrating?


I hope yours is good!

  3. Can't get over the gleam of Frida's fur - and from your description, there surely is one in her eye (especially when whacking the boys). We. too have a break from Southern hot and steamy; feels more like New England (ah, I still miss Boston). Hoe your weekend is great and restful.

  8. I love your cup set. 'Aspidistra' sounds like a spell they'd chant in Harry Potter. Celebrating the weekend is awesome.

  14. Hmm, I think both agapanthus AND aspidistra sound Seuss-y. Fun! :) Your kitty is just gorgeous. I love that she whacks the other cats around!
