When Liam came last time, my sweet daughter-in-love, Lauren, had sent along a bouquet of flowers that Liam picked out for me.
How thoughtful of her!!! And now, nearly two weeks later, they are still lovely. I feel so special and loved!
We had another freeze the other night and Tiffany has checked on the peach tree and says it is doing well. I’ll try to get some pictures of it next week.
I’m looking forward to Walmart getting in their trees again this year. I’m going to replace my nectarine that died and my poor Arkansas Black apple tree that seems to be partially dead. Looks like it may have gotten hit by lightening. I got the peach tree from Walmart last year.
I received this cute chef guy for Christmas from my little sister and the other day I saw that Tiffany had written on it.
I love it!!!
When the Bradford Pear Trees were blooming, I checked on our wild redbud trees and they hadn’t started yet. Of course I didn’t get close to them because they are not readily available, meaning I’d have to walk through the brush to check closely. But when we’ve been out and about lately, I’ve noticed that others are blooming, so I looked out my back window and rising above the barren branches were some pretty bits of pink! I asked Tiffany if she’d take a picture while she was out feeding the animals today.
They are little but a nice bit of color in otherwise dreary or drab branches.
Here’s a picture I took with the telephoto lens so that you could see what I see.
This is Latte.
And this is a picture of KitKat from last August.
Notice that she has no tail.
These are newly born kittens. Both Latte and KitKat were pregnant at the same time. We know when Kit Kat had hers because her water broke on our front porch while Tiffany was out with her. We aren’t so sure about Latte.
There are four kittens.
Tiffany says that she thinks three of them don’t have a tail, which would make them Kit Kat’s. We’re pretty sure at least one is Latte’s. They are both nursing all four of them.
This is Shiloh. She just had a hair cut and it is chillier out this morning, so she’s wearing her coat.
She loves kittens! She has always stuck her head in whatever house they were in and just looked at them fondly . . . no matter to whom they belonged. Kit Kat is okay with Shiloh checking in on them but Latte is another story. She hisses at Shiloh every time. Thus, Tiffany only lets her peek in when Kit Kat is with them. As you can see in the picture above, Latte is a bit protective of her kits.
Michael found a mangled dead kit at the bottom of the steps one morning, so this is probably why she is being this way. Not sure how it got that way but . . . it could be why she’s being so protective now.
We finally got to celebrate Lauren’s February birthday last night! They’ve been awfully busy.
Yep, he’s a loon!!!
I made one of her favorite meals: San Francisco Chicken with noodles and then Strawberry No-Bake Cheesecake for dessert. I made a keto version for us. It was good, except for the crust; I gotta buy some other oat fiber! The brand I got, Anthony’s, is STRONG! It makes food taste like play-doh!
I did promise a picture of Liam.
We played Small World board game together and Lauren won!
We had fun and I got lots of Liam cuddles. We get to watch him some next week too.
We have a church dinner/fun night tonight. I’m not hostessing it this time but have agreed to bring a pot of stew and help decorate this morning. I hope I remember to get some pictures to share with you next week.
Until next time, God bless,
