Thirty cats in the hole

Threeboyz

You know I love it when they're all three in the hole like this. Look at Fran, gettin' all romantical with the wall, there. And Henry just might as well be a grownup cat at this point. Didn't his kitten days fly by? Well, the part where EVERYTHING IS A TOY and ALL MUST BE CLAWED has not passed.

I do not know why that hole is there. This kitchen used to not exist at all. What is now our dining room used to be the kitchen, and then someone said, Oh, let's turn that into a dining room, then let's take the tiniest sliver possible and turn it into a teeny teeny kitchen.

And then that room beyond the cats used to be a screened-in porch, and they turned it into a room. So, why is this here? It was never a window leading to the back yard. Sometimes we think about knocking it down altogether, so you can just walk into the back part. But then where would the cats sit?

I don't feel AS bad today. Keith Richards was not staring back at me in the bathroom mirror, so that's always a plus. Naturally this means I'm going to try to do 85 loads of laundry, cut back my salvia, and plant grass in the back yard today. Because it's important I have a relapse, like Almanzo Wilder when he got out of bed too soon after diphtheria.

Yesterday I read a lot of our new book club book, The Glass Castle, and it is good. But that's all I will say about that. I don't want to ruin our stimulating book club discussion on November 7. That's for Sleeping Beauty to do.

Oh! And I know you're shocked that I forgot to announce comment of the week yesterday, but it went to Faithful Reader Accidental Housewife, who if I am not mistaken, hails from Australia. She doesn't live there, she just hails there. BAhahahaha.

Really. How do you not split your sides constantly over at Bye Bye, Pie? Anyway, click on Special of the Week if you want to see AH's fine comment.

Okay, off to give myself a relapse.

  2. I love how your cats lined up in size order.
    The wall is obviously left over from a puppet theatre. DUH.
    Keith Richards! That health nut.
    Your posts always make me laugh, that’s why I come by every day, and twice on the weekend.

  5. Oh. Wait. The kokopelli is that flute-playing thing. I was thinking more of the coyote howling thing. You usually see those two together, tho. If someone decorated all Southwest-y like. To which I say, stop.

  6. Maybe the hole used to be a window looking out into the backyard BEFORE the screen porch that turned into a room. Maybe, once upon a time, there was a regular porch, with the hole being a window to overlook the yard. Then one day they decided to screen in the porch. Or maybe there was never a porch at all until they decided to put on a screen porch. Porch is an odd word.
    Glad you are feeling better.

  7. I’m constantly splitting my sides when I read your blog. That’s why I check it most every day. Love the photo of the three cats. That Henry has really grown. Missed seeming them.

  8. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Where did baby Henry go? Well, it looks like it’s almost time to get a kitten for Christmas/Hanukkah/ Kwanzaa.
    Hey… have you ever seen Reminisce magazine? My 83 year-old grandmother gets it and then gives it to me. I love it! An entire magazine dedicated to looking at old pictures of people I’ve never met. I got a batch the other day and it made me think of you. Go figure.
