A Busy Fall Day and more Kitty Kats

What a gloriously beautiful fall day!
Sushine and just a wee nip to the air.

I was up bright and early and got the day started with a bit of laundry.
Drank some coffee and did some knitting.

Then it was time to get that yard work started.
I got the veg patch de constructed only leaving thyme, rosemary, and some parsley.
I plan on making salts and jellies with the thyme and rosemary.
The parsley I will leave until it gets ravaged by that first frost.

I harvested my onions.

I still can't believe I planted 50 or 60 onions and what is my reward 7!!!!!!
Shake fist at those damn squirrels!

After lunch I did some more fall sprucing up.

And for the past 3 or 4 days this little fella has been hanging around.
Is he a stray? Is he lost? Has he run away from home?
I don't know but today I put some crunchies out and he devoured them!
What to do? What to do?

And then this afternoon this guy showed up!

My heart leaped from my chest when I saw him.
At first glance he looks like my girl Addy.
He is a bit more chunky.
Probably heard of the free eats!

After a nice hot shower.
I popped a wee roast in the oven with lots of veggies.
Then was able to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and flip thru my magazine

What a nice day! We had a stray we fed and he has now joined the household. Still he is a lovely Tuxedo cat and makes us smile. Hugs, Linda

Oh-oh. You must be a cat lover. I only love the ones who live in houses. The outdoor ones are rarely allowed to stay, though there was one beautiful black and gray striped kitty sitting near the fence post that was so serene and handsome I couldn't chase him off.

Sounds like a perfect day. Or is that a purrrrrfect day? What are you going to do, young lady, with all these kitty cats? Maybe we should get hubby to build a HUGE shelter in the yard.Let me know if you are walking tomorrow.

Our afternoons have been perfect for being outside haven't they?

I can just feel that fall sunshine on my face! I love that you make sure the strays have someone to go for a "handout"--such a big heart:-)
