The Basket Case...
















Click on photo to enlarge

Today is house cleaning day, we moved all the furniture, took the rugs outside for a beating, mopped the floor, brought everything back in, and then sat down for lunch, a beer and a break. During our break I was sitting on the floor adding some wood to the stove when Peggy came over and sat, kind of Yoga style in my lap to snuggle for a minute, when shortly she started chuckling, and pointed to Neo staring at us from behind me, cozily perched in one of our pine-needle bowls while Steely Dan played softly from the iPod. Funny how our pets pick up our vibes and want in on the action, often stealing the show.

Thanks Neo!

I was comfy there by the fire with Peg before she made me get up and grab the camera so I could take a picture of you...

This post reminds me that I'm supposed to be continuing our basketry project and sharing some techniques.

O.K., O.K., I'll get back to that real soon.

But right now I have to get back to work, Peggy is cracking the whip today, and so far I've been a good boy, but you know what they say, "you're only as good as your last deed", or something like that?

Cats always seeem to seek out a space 2 sizes 2 small, don't they? At our last house, we had a visiting neighbourhood cat that loved to sleep in our birdbath; he looked like bread dough rising out of the bowl.

You should have called me! I would have helped you with the work, well, the beer and break part certainly.

AW that's adorable. He looks like a ginger ice cream cone.
Sorry about it breaking up the snuggly though...I hate it when that happens.

Awwww, cute! It seems cats like to curl up in my mandolin case when I leave it open; the space must be just the right size.

Sounds like a nice day! :)

I have a dog who like to crawl in the middle of two cuddling people.

When I lived in Arkansas many years ago, we called these the "honeydew" chores.

Nice kitty; I have a similar one of our grey and white cat in a basket and another of 5 kittens who actuall managed to cram themselves in.
