Backyard next door.
Mama bird busy feeding young. This birdhouse is used year after year.
Morning glories and other items on my patio potting table.
Inside, meanwhile, Bert likes to stay close to me as I write. He doesn't like to get on the table like Murray does, but he does like to be comfy. So I give him Murray's kitty bed while Murray is holed up under the covers for the better part of the day in the bedroom, even though Bert is big for it. Somehow he makes it work.
Afternoon. As the morning slides to afternoon, I take a cup of tea. Clipper teapot, Tuscan bone china teacup & saucer, Duchess pattern.
Uh-oh. It's 3:00 and Murray woke up and is looking for both his kitty bed and his dinner. I feed the boys at around 3:00-3:30 or so, and after that, Bert will go into the bedroom and snooze and Murray will spend some time with me at the table in the kitty bed. I love it when siblings get along.
In two weeks I'll be back at school, and these nice quiet days will end as I return to my job at the elementary school with all its bells, hustle, bustle, and children. Even then, all will be well because I love kids. I'll miss my kitties though, Bert and Murray and I have had a good summer together.
