Some pictures from the homestead

The goofy cat....lying on the messy floor....playing with a red feathered boa. He was going wild with this thing. He yanked it out of the bedroom, rolled all over the floor, crept back and 'stalked' it, then pounced viciously on it.
He's weird.

Here is dingleberry again...goofy cat...he's camped out, rather comfortably it appears, in my plant! He wanted that sunny window for himself, I guess. But lying in my plant?!

He didn't care for us taking his picture either -- we interrupted his nap. He stood up staring at us after this one, arched his back and stretched, then climbed out of the plant and crawled behind it to squeeze himself between the other plants on this table.

We've also caught him napping in the log cabin dollhouse that sits on the buffet...

No, he isn't 'growling' at us, although it does look like it, heh? Too many nights watching those old MGM movies, I guess :o) No, he's just yawning.

Here is our tomato, bell pepper and eggplant starts in the dining room. Three full shelves of them :o)

It takes up a bit of room, and those sitting on that side of the table have to be a bit more careful about moving their chairs around, but hey, it's for a good cause...the garden and pantry ;o) And it's only for a handful of weeks. We'll live.

This just came across my mailbox...
Simply put: Nationalizing ailing banks could mean the government would tell some bank execs to take a hike, and then oversee taxpayer dollars as credit courses through the banking sector's veins. When all is well, after quickly re-privatizing the banks by selling assets and operations to new investors, the government then steps back and lets a newly regulated bank sector float on its way.
...Of course, the economy would still stink, but the death spiral we are in would end."
LOL...I'm not laughing at the economy at all...I'm just laughing at the irony of having this pop in on a day when the bank didn't transmit the paycheck. Hmmm....would a nationalized banking system have ensured me a deposit this morning? Maybe I should be all for it....

Naw...don't think so.

Nice you can grow your own veggies. Just saw an article that said our vegetables don't have as many vitamins in them anymore because of mass production and trying to make them jumbo sized. (Declining Fruit and Vegetable Nutrient Composition: What Is the Evidence?

Another reason I wish I could grow my own, sigh...apartment life :(.

Pretty sad when even our veggies have been super-sized and need added enrichment to be decent :o(
We are killing ourselves...I don't like 'enriched' food...I like real food.

yes- a blessing- we are blessed to live in a area where their are gardeners who will share or sell the veggies- non are certified organic due to the difficulties getting certified- we do not have enough soil or area at our home here to garden either but I do grow herbs in tubs- hugs Meme

Cats are so funny! We have a goofy one as well. He makes us laugh all the time :)

This cat was one of 8 kittens. He was by far, the runt of the runt bunch, to boot. He had absolutely no hair whatsoever for almost 2 weeks and barely got fed. He was always pushed aside during the feeding frenzy. We brought him in 6 times a day and fed him ourselves, or brought momma in and kenneled her with him alone so he could eat his fill.
All the other kittens in the bunch have passed on...neighbor dogs, getting in with our guard dog, playing too close to the lane here, etc. He is the last one now, so we brought him inside. He had his brother and they were always jumping around and 'spazzing' out together. I know he misses that, but man is he weird :o)
