Why do cats like sitting and or lying on things? This is a blue carrier bag with a couple of fish on it saying save our seas, I think he just likes it because its soft. He also likes the washing basket, my rucksack, a cardboard box or two, the arm of the settee, and especially my hubby’s clothes when he’s got undressed ready for bed. The cat sleeps wherever he wants.
This hanging basket had a solar light shining over it. With the sunshine we had today its really bright. The colours stand out well in the night against a dark sky. Perhaps we will add more over the other baskets.
Roundabout or Carousel
Galloping over ground
Chasing round in circles
Dancing up and down,
Riding high with friendly faces,
Horses in Derby races!
Round again and cantering fast
Now your on the home stretch
Past the winning post at last!
He’s in there,
he fell in love
with this bag.
Soft blue dreams,
wafting from its open top.
Watch out cat,
feet pass you,
but you are not disturbed.
You sleep on,
chasing toy mice,
racing against jaguars and tigers.
Feeling Fleet footed.
Curled up, warm,
On Mondays we write limericks at Esther Chiltons blog here.
Her prompt for us today was Zoom.
I decided to zoom past the obvious usage of the world and wrote this:
The telescope was set on Zoom
He could see the man in the moon
I’ll get in my rocket
With some cheese in my pocket
To feed old moony real soon!
Take a pencil a pen or a paintbrush
Make a mark
See what happens
Feel joy and wonder
Learn your skills
Reach for your imagination.
Visited a friend who has some bean plants growing and some tomato plants.
I was jealous, my tomatoes only have a couple of fruits on them. And we don’t have any beans. But I admire her ability to grow them. It’s good to go out and visit people at a distance. It’s better than sitti g in my house. I still wear a mask even if I’m outside. That made it hard to have a glass of elderflower cordial so I relented because I was thirsty and we kept a good six feet apart. Now I’m back home in the cool. It was 36° C in places today. The hottest August day since 2003, and it’s forecast to get hotter!
I drew him in 2014. It’s in amongst some drawings of the Boatband that I did in 2014. But this cheered me up, I think he was howling along with the music as dogs sometimes do. We had a great time as usual. I’ve even found a picture of someone playing a double bass, not something that occurs very often.
I can’t imagine anyone wanting to bring this into a crowded pub very often. I think I’ve got the proportions wrong!
Just had his tea. Cat food. I opened the back door to put some food out for the stray cat and this was there. My hubby went out and the smaller one is in the shed. I didn’t disturb it to much, just looked out of the back door.
I love having wild animals visiting. Can’t wait to see if we get Hoglets!
The abandoned cat who is virtually ours. He definitely has adopted us. He’s wheedled his way into our lives. He gets fed regularly, sleeps in a bed in a shed, and comes and sits on your lap when he feels like it. I will try and get his microchip altered. His owners went away and left him. He would be in the house, but I have two rescue cats already. I’m getting them vaccinated next week and then we can try and introduce them to each other. Things could get difficult.
I do love him, he’s worked his way into my heart. These photos of him were taken in the garden this afternoon.
