Friday, But No Five

Amy is not hosting Five on Friday for awhile as much is going on in her life, I wish her well and hope she's back soon.
Update on our friend the Mockingbird, more research shows that he is territorial and will defend his space against all invaders.  We have berry bushes around our garage and I guess he considers them his.  So yesterday Mac caught him in the garage pecking at his reflection in the side of Mac's car.  No damage done thankfully.  Also found out that though they're primarily bug eaters they will eat raisins and sunflower seeds, both of which we have, and we're going to put some out to lure him away from the garage.
Now for something completely different.  Mac gave me a surprise gift this week, new luggage tags.  It's Gudetama again.  Hope he's not to apathetic to take care of my bags.
Each summer Miss Kitty lays around getting her 18-24 hours of sleep a day and I ponder that she is getting older and slowing down like the rest of us.  Then Fall comes and she's like a kitten again.  Into everything, playing with all her toys and bugging us to go outside.  She's standing on my desk right now kicking stuff off, trying to annoy me enough that I'll take her out.  I'll throw her out of the room, but not take her out, she's already been and ate grass, barfed and did all those really great cat things.
Hope you're having as beautiful a day as we are, it's picture perfect here, though colder weather is coming.

  6. This reminds me of a story of a robin. When we lived in town, one spring, a robin would not stop pecking on our neighbors car. After a few days of this, he pulled his car into his garage. Would you believe that robin started pecking on the garage windows! I am not kidding. Saw it with my own eyes. Isn't nature fun?

  7. Love your description of Miss Kitty doing what cats do, it's a good job we love them isn't it? Lovely tags to grace you bags on your next journey:)

  8. What fun luggage tags, and you will definitely recognize your bags. And your cat reminds me of mine. She came alive when the hot weather left, too! One of her favorite activities is poking things off tables. You can often tell where she is in the house by the noise of things hitting the hardwood floors.

  9. I love those luggage tags, so cute, and I'm sure they'll help you to recognise your luggage as it comes round on the carousel.

  10. The luggage tags are adorable, and there won't be many others around like them so you won't have to tie a ribbon on yours to be able to pick it out. You've got your hands full with those two. The cat might take on the bird if you let it outside...or vice versa. Wonder who would win that one?

  14. Nice tags. Enjoyed reading about your cat... mine can certainly sleep as well, just wakes for food and to be let out for hours on end.

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
