A quick Hello

to say that - no I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth YET!!!

Life has just been extremely busy and my computer time and my stitching time has suffered greatly- will explain soon.

Just wanted to share with you the cat that is too big for the small box. Cats love boxes, paperbags, small spaces in closets and chasing sheets as one makes a bed.

Well, here is Mars sitting/sleeping in a box from Sam's club (big box warehouse store). He loves this tiny box - why is beyond our family's understanding, but it is just way too funny and cute!!
This is some flowers and spearmint from the yard - smelled great!

The Hydragea's were lovely, but with the heat we have been having, my bushes are just not too happy, but here is another view - do note that large cat is still in small box just under the purple flower.


Now some of my flowers are simply a food source for the locals - we have visitors daily and there are hardly any flowers left in the yard. LOL

Now as for stitching - that has taken a big hit - have worked on a few smallish items and have been knitting a bit - dish/wash cloths, and knitting socks - have 3 going and only one sock is almost done from the three pairs!! I do miss my computer time and stitching time, but I do try to drop in and visit blogs - usually do not have time for commenting since I visit during work. I am hoping life will ease up for my by mid September.


Thank you for stopping by ----------------- Roberta

Oh, Mars is so cute! I love the pic! Isn't it funny how our little ones get attached to such things as boxes that are too small for them? Lol! Your flowers are gorgeous!

So nice to see you back. It is a funny thing with cats and too small spaces! So hot in the US, I'm glad to be back in the much cooler UK!

Isn't this heat brutal on the plants. I've got a ton of hydragea's and they have to be watered two times a day! Oh, and I can only imagine the smell of the spearment. My favorite.

Yes, my hydrangeas were just gorgeous until this week. Hope this heat heads out of town soon! Love little Mars in his box bed--so cute :) My cat used to do the same thing...

Dona said...

Good to hear from you, Roberta! Your hydrangeas are very pretty. I love the smell of spearmint, too.

Love the picture of Mars in the too little box. Miss Kitty loves boxes and thinks they are all just the right size.

Hi Roberta! I love the arrangement from your yard. Hydrangeas are one of my favorites, and everything looks so pretty together. The cat is the small box is so funny. Ours do the same thing! I wonder why they like doing that so much? Is that deer in your yard?

Your cat is so cute!

I love your hydrangeas - I have thought of trying to grow them here, but don't know if they would stand the heat...
