Sacked Out !

i came upstairs to make the bed this morning and this is what i found...


whiskey sour and dande rose marie bagged out on the bed....look at that face...that is whiskey.




little tiny dande....she is as light as a feather...






since i am upstairs in the bedroom i thought i would show you around...that little wood burning stove is my squirrel stove...there are squirrels on the sides..the little black lady's rocking chair came from camden, maine.








the little necklace was made for me by a very special little girl...











outside one of my windows...the houses behind me on church street...and the brown california mountains...the blue morning glory is growing in all the trees in the back... even though it is july here...as i write i am wearing a ski coat...i don't know why...but on the coast of california it is COLD. woke to 55 degrees this morning...with a high of 65. what ? california? in july ? really ?

  3. Oh my goodness!! You must be freezing!! I'll trade you our hot and humid 90 degrees here in NY for your 65 in CA!!! My husband lived in San Diego for several years and he always talks about how beautiful the weather is there all year 'round. Your kitties and squirrel stove are lovely!! :)

  4. Aww, how sweet! Did you disturb them or leave them in bed? LOL!!! I would have! How nice to have a wood stove near by! I can't believe how chilly it is in CA! Yikes! What gives?

  5. Nothing as cozy as seeing a cat curled up or totally relaxed on a bed, is there!
    Love the necklace, the squirrel stove and the chair... thank you for the little tour!

  8. ...That is too cute! We have two kitties that make themselves at home on our bed sometimes before I get a chance to make it and I go ahead and make the bed anyway. It's kind of our play time when I do, as at first they shoot me 'that' look wondering why I am disturbing their peaceful sleep but shortly thereafter then it turns to play! lol... :o)

    ...We were having 115 degree days but today it is a beautiful 82 degrees which I am loving.

    ...Blessings :o)

  9. 55 sure sounds good to me since we are usually 60 degrees above that. :/ Your cats are adorable ... love their names! Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

  12. How indulged are your cats Kary? They look so comfortable. Thrilled to see the beautiful and rampant Morning Glory - so much more exotic and exciting than our pale Bindweed. x

  13. Oh, how funny are the cats.
    I'll take your temps any day! We have had temps in the high 90's up until today. A severe storm came through last night and brought some lower temps for one day. They are saying we may have a heat wave next week. YUCK!
    Have a good one.

  35. That goodness you clarified why you call it your "squirrel stove." I had all kinds of scenarios running through my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I hope you let your kitties sleep the day away, it was much too cold along the coast to kick them out of bed. Thank you for the tour, your little house looks so "New England".

  37. Darling kitties...Alice sleeps on the bed in London, but here she is downstairs...or she feels the need to 'guard' us & bark at every little sound! Much love to you my sweet friend...warm & sunny here today, beautiful xoxo Alice & Me

  40. Those little kitties are to cute and I am loving your squirrel wood stove. Fall is my season so the cool weather suits me just fine. I also love the view from your window. California is a beautiful place to live. Perhaps we should switch houses. LOL

  43. Thanks for your visit this morning, Kary!! Wow, I just love your little kitties - aren't cats the best at just enjoying life? And I LOVE your squirrel stove and rocking chair.

    Could you please send some of that cold our way? I remember wearing gloves and a scarf going into San Francisco one summer when we lived there. The fog just never lifted and it was cold!

    Wishing you and Teddy a wonderful day!! Winslow says hi and Ramses sends his love to your cats!

    Hugs, Silke

  51. I am freezing, too. My friend is visiting from New Orleans and we had lunch on the Pacifica coast yesterday - great Dungeness crab sandwiches but we kept our sweaters on inside the restaurant the whole time! Amazing! It was even chilly the three days we spent in Sacramento this past week!
