Saturday in Summer

Some of the kittens checking me out.

Their mother has brought them in from god-knows-where to the shed we feed them in, but they scatter the minute I approach. Yesterday I stood around for a while and they were curious but didn't come within eight feet of me. All five are alive and well; we hadn't seen them for several weeks, when Scott spotted them playing under one of the old combines left here by the previous owners.

Took Karen's tiny little female Yorkie to meet her new owner yesterday, and then carried on to do some shopping in Yorkton, which is still recovering from its severe flood. Arrived home in the evening to work email in my inbox and a countertop full of dirty dishes; I haven't done them for a day or two. And would like to, but alas ... it's Saturday and I believe there may be a garage sale in town, and it's a sunny day, and although I was unsuccessful at keeping Scott from his farm work to go for breakfast with me and attend a few sales, he did fish a $50 bill out of his wallet so I could pick up beer ... so I might as well go see if I can find anything to spend his change on. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.


  1. Such cute little kittens...all wide-eyed!

    And you're right...a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! I hope you find some lovely items at the garage sale.

  2. How do the kittens get along with Casper. I had a German Shepherd who was raised with cats, so he thought he was one. He was a great mouser, except when they got under something small, like a coffee table.
    Hope you find some real treasures at the garage sale.

  3. Casper likes cats.
    I haven't gotten to town yet! It's 2 pm; I got a phone call from a dear friend; then a real estate lady dropped in and I showed her all Scott's renovations (she was suitably impressed); then I realized my potted plants needed water and Miracle Gro or they'll be hot and dry before I get back; then Scott came home to unload a couple cow-calf pairs into the pasture and asked me to heat up the KFC for him; then we chatted while he ate. And now ...

  4. I had to really try hard to see "kittens" in the photo---I could only see one for the longest time. Very appealing!

  5. Hope you had a good time and found something you liked at the garage sales.
