I didn't mean to disappear for the last few weeks...

Now that the weather is warmer I'm catching up on all the things I didn't get to do during the winter.

So, here's a small re-cap of April, and some gratuitous cutie cat photos.

The cats are loving the sun as well. Mango works on her tan.

PomPom shows off the new 7-foot tall cat tree.

Helping pick out recipes...

A few weekends ago we stayed at a hotel just to take a break from the gloomy and depressing cold weather. I loved the heated swimming pool, while Dave took great advantage of the all-you-can-eat breakfast. This was his third trip of the morning.

All of the rain has turned our yard into a jungle. I've spent hours and hours trimming and pulling weeds and still have much work to do. I love being outside though.

The roses are blooming like crazy.

My bike is ready for summer!

I finally finished my mammoth spring cleaning. One of my accomplishments is that I put all my 1000+ books in proper bookcases. They had been scattered throughout every room of the house and I could never find the book I was looking for. Now, they are all together and easy to look through. A consequence of my organizing is that I am reading like a fiend lately-- 3 or 4 books a week.

I have at least 20 yummy recipes to share, since though I've not been posting, I have been cooking and baking. I'll get back to regular blogging and reading blogs this week.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!


  1. Welcome back! You have been missed.

  2. The gratuitous cats are gorgeous!

  3. The pictures are great, your yard looks good and the pool inviting. The cats are just gorgeous!!

  4. Nice photo summary of the month. Pom Pom is so big! Your yard is pretty. I like the big aloe plant (or the plant that looks like an aloe).

    I had a little trouble commenting, so if you have two from me, that's why.

  5. Hi Michele! I missed you. :) YOUR yard is beautiful - and a pool to boot! The roses are gorgeous and your cats are too cute. What a lovely home you have. Now that you've organized your books, would you mind coming over to help me with mine? (I'll bake something good!)
