Scrat is a prehistoric squirrel whose sole purpose in life is to bury an elusive acorn, which always – always! triggers calamitous events.

Yesterday Jill… spotted “ICE AGE”… the movie…  coming on the TV…

Actually it seems that this furry character named Scrat… got her attention…

He was trying to bury his acorn…but, not having much luck with the frozen ground

She started on the floor watching… then went to the table where she could get a better look…

She watched intently for about 15 minutes… as different characters emerged…

We laughed as she bent down to look under the TVsearching for this pesky squirrel…

She then tried to touch them

We so enjoyed watching her antics!

We drove with some friends to a farm in Indiana…

They grow and sell beautiful flowers, herbs, rose bushes and many other things…

The old farm-house has someone living in it…

but, the grounds are set up with a green house… small shops… a Tea Room / Restaurant

and Winery / Restaurant… a places to sit…

They have craft / classes in a building for different things… weddings may be held there… they are building a small chapel…

music weekly on the grounds…

We walked and looked at all of the beautiful flowers… statuary… that are for sale…

and then had lunch at the Tea Room…

A salad of mixed greens, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, glazed sugary pecans, avocado, grilled warm chicken and homemade strawberry dressing…. along with slices of french bread with herb butter…

I ordered Iced Plum Tea... to try something new…

If we hadn’t eaten already … a glass of Strawberry Wine Punch would have been good at the winery …They also have tasting of the Homemade Wines they make…

After touring a few antique shops…

we headed for Hancock’s Drug Store in Scottsburg, Indiana for homemade ice cream sodas!…YUMMY!…

A yellow gladioli had been broken off with the rain…

so I brought it inside to enjoy…

My goal for today was to make me this Water Challenge I saw on FACEBOOK…

Take a gallon jug… wash and fill with water …

Lable it with these words…

Goal is to drink this every day!

“Kitty” Spring Fever???

My little kitty (Kit Kit) has acted strange all day… she has been extremely loving… and talking as cats do

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

k15068990 … Her purr sounds more like a little lamb braying… She has sat on me… laid on mex19482954

… been at my feet… rolling around… and purrs so loud… everyone can hear her… She has slept in between… not wanting to go out as much as usual…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Do you think she has Spring Fever???

or maybe feeling the things that “young girls” do when in love…k5296114

She has had a suitor coming by the last couple of days… or one that would like to become more familiar if you know what I mean!…

He has been quite persistent in his wiling ways…k3759869

Is my little girl growing up???… adolescence???

Is she starting to become of age???… puberty???

I am hoping not… too soon!…

I need to get her to the vetu25027893 … (surgery is needed)… get her tagged and licensed.. before all of this happens…

So, please… let this be just a little bit of showing me she has finally settled in… and loves me that I took her in… and happy that she has found a good home…

because I’m not ready to be a Grandma any time soon … to some little Kittiesk13753763

I checked with Animal Planet 75px-Animal_Planet on  “THIS SUBJECT”… and it seems Kit Kit might be a prime candidate

Hope I’m not too late for that VET visit! k1396715

The sun is shining... temps up in the 40’s… and a birthday lunch to go to… My Granddaughter turned 19… last Wednesday… but, we all could get together today..

Birthday Girl on left… with little sister!

As her tatoo says, “She flies with her own wings!”…

Cookie Cake to take home with leftovers… way too much food…

Looking out at all of the snow still hanging around… makes you just want to stay in…

The cats are fascinated by the snow falling…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The little one who we call “Kit Kit” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

tries to catch the snowflakes as they fall… Keeps her hopping for sure!

She is very entertaining… Even getting our old girl… Jill 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA … to join in sometimes…

I’ve Fallen In Love!

She’s back!

Ever since I saw her a few days ago… she has visited my front porch…

She is the sweetest!…

and I have fallen for her!…

She has the sweetest little voice… looking up into my face…

I pick her up and she snuggles as close as she can… giving little kisses… and rubbing under my chin…

I gave her a treat… and she gobbled it up…

Maybe that’s why she comes back every day…

But, I want to believe it’s just to visit me!…

I haven’t felt this way about anything in a long time… well, as far as animals go…

She is a kitty… who actually belongs to the neighbor next door… I found out…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She had no home and they took her in…

She doesn’t even have a name…

Her coloring is very unusual… a mixture of brown, black, tan, gray and orange…

a Tabby probably… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A couple of months old… Eats the Meow Mix  dry-original-choice I give her by the handful with no problem…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would take her in a heart beat… and the neighbors would let me have her…

But… I have one problem…

A big old girl named Jill… who has had the run of our house going on 13 years… and she says, “No Way!”… in her most ferocious meow and growlOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Get away from my door!”…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Get out of my yard!”… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and definitely, “Get out of my master’s arms!”…

“I am hers and no one else is taking my place!”…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It might be in “cat talk”… but, I do understand Jill’s message…

I have tried to acclimate them a little… wanting them to be friends… but, don’t think it’s working…

Kitty says, “OK”… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

but, not the old girl… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, for now… I will have to be content with our little visits and quick hugs when Jill is not looking! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

x11948375

………………………….

I tried to figure out if I had anything luxurious

Expensive and NOT necessary…

I guess it would be something I treat myself with that I don’t HAVE to have

Maybe a “special spice”… that would make a recipe “all that!”…k9220612

Bubble Bath or Pretty Smelling Soaps”… that just make me feel “luxurious”…k6565992

“My Pet Cat Jill” who gives me the most pleasure… but, requires a special kind of cat food for her finicky ways…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Vacations” … to a place I’ve never seen… NO, I’m not a worldly traveler… but, across the boundaries of Kentucky at least…k14707353

A “special drink” for celebrating…k7901618

A “special dinner” with those I love…k4583019

A “Present / Gift” given to someone … who I know will love it!…sfo0344

A Gift Card just for ME… to spend on just me!…k4432558

A “Girl’s Day Out”… to be with those I share most everything with…mpe0008

but, my mostLuxurious” item I have… is my husband and my little family…

They give me more pleasure… a feeling of wealth… a feeling of having found precious stones… a “high” that comes naturally…a heart so full it could bust at times…

Yes! … I think I have got items that I would call “Luxury Items”…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

that I couldn’t live without… and they belong to me!

Daily Prompt: Early bird, or Night Owl?

I’m both…

I love getting up early… and having the whole day ahead of me… My only stipulation… since I’m retired… is that I get up when I want…k11730938

Usually this is pretty early… because I love that first cup of coffee by myself… Nice and hot with a little cream… u16966773

I like my morning routine with my kitty cat

Her talking to me… getting her scratching and rubs… and me getting a few wet scratchy tongue kisses on my hand… leg… foot… well, wherever she decides…szo0016

I then check my emails… Facebook… blogs…u13656209

also checking the news by internet

Afterwards… I might wander outside on pretty days watching the sun risek9055265 … sit in our swing… drink a few more drinks of coffee k1098975 Pick a weed out of the flower beds u21492557 … listen to the birdsk10285438 …and watch our crazy squirrels

k7490438

So… I am an Early Bird
At the beginning I said I’m both…

You hadn’t forgotten that had you?

I say I’m a Night Owl too… because I watch my favorite TV shows k6481286 late because that’s when they are on… I seem to get a second wind later at night… and also since daylight savings time… we have longer days…. and I don’t want to waste a minute of it!…

I seem to actually fight going to bed… the fight being inside of me

I keep finding something to do… be it readingk12110670 computer game… or bloggingSSH0003

But, when I finally lay down k8266661 … It feels awesome and I am fast asleepk11199174

So I’m an early bird catching the worm k0565114

and a big old hoot owl with my eyes propped open as big as saucers k8944040

A little strange, but me…
