It’s been awhile since I last wrote
but life has been very busy around here.
Some days are easier than others.
BUT, he’s pretty easy to get along with…
HE likes to help mom in the garden
just like ME!
On the other hand, those stupid birds are taking over!
and those dumb birds chased him away… can you believe it??? BIRDS chasing a C – A – T ? ? ?
BUT they do
AND they get away with it…
Mom helps me with my blog… it’s hard work, you know.
a relief to me since he keeps picking me up and putting me down!
FOR TWO WHOLE DAYS!
I was allowed to stay up all night with my sister’s friends playing cards.
The grandchildren came over to play and drove me nuts!
DON’T THEY KNOW that I don’t like to be touched ALL THE TIME???
PHEW! A BREAK!
Mom still wouldn’t let me go outside…
she was afraid that I might get blown away.
THEN, we had issues…
there were these big crashes tumbling through the house…
knocking loose bricks down the chimney!
She said they were so pretty she was going to keep one!
Little did I know that I was going to have to stay OUTSIDE now! The coop was moved for me to live in… NO MORE HOUSE! My mom says that is so I can get used to the colder weather since I can’t stay in the house for the winter. It makes me sad, but my mom and dad still let me come in to say hi.
Mom designed a rug about me… she finished it just before the big show!
Now she’s working on another one with just ME in it!
I helped my mom set up the Garden Shop.
THEN, people started arriving and setting up tents.
These are my friends Cindy & Denise. This was Cindy’s tent with her husband Joe (he picks things up and put them down!) and they own Hometown Antiques in West Brookfield, MA. Denise owns Sassafras Hill Primitives in Enfield, CT.
It rained and rained and rained… lots of people got really wet
and so did I!
(Sometimes he saves bits of bread for ME!)
We had special guests from the west coast staying with us for a few days.
THEY really liked ME!
Paul is a bookbinder from Washington and runs From Common Hands Studio. MY mom LOVES his books… she has 4 and wants more!
My friend Bonnie came back to see me, too! She writes a great blog called Home in New England. (Photo by Paul McClintock)
The peacocks hung out in the Liberty Garden, showing off their pretty feathers but not being very friendly… like ME!
Nothing prepared me for what was to happen NEXT!
I let them pat me AND…
My mom told me that Ryleigh looked for me ALL DAY! Finally, I came out and let her play with me again. She took me out to the back field to visit with Maria and Bonnie and to show other people my bonnet. SHE LOVES ME!
Maria took a funny picture of my mom and Paul in Milltown Primitives‘ booth… it looks like fun! (Photo by Maria Cardillo)
All in all, I had lots of fun having all these people here. Everyone was nice to me, laughing and having fun! Maybe they will come again. I would like that!
At the end of the day, everyone was tired, INCLUDING ME!
The C – A – T and I are back to dodging the peacocks and playing in the garden.
Until next time~
