Ollie insists.

Every so often, Oliver insists on being featured on the blog. He’s a jealous cat and he demands attention. When our little dog Max was still with us, Ollie DID NOT LIKE HIM.

Poor little dog, the cat would sneak up on him and nip him on the back of the leg. Such a beast.

So….in order to not get nipped in the back of the leg, I present an update on Oliver.

There…hopefully this will satisfy him for a time.


The mystery cook.

Some of you know that I’m temporarily living in an apartment. (They put insulation in the new house today….YAY!) I don’t really mind apartment living at all. There’s only ONE thing that is driving me a little crazy.

Somewhere in our end of the hallway, there lives a GREAT cook! Some days, I go about my business, eat dinner and am quite content.

Other days, I open the door to the hallway and someone is cooking…cooking a heavenly dish. The smells are fantastic and I get hunger pangs. I must find this person and beg for  their recipes, but who is the cook? I can’t pinpoint the apartment.

I don’t think it’s this apartment, but I don’t know…young man, single I think…doesn’t strike me as the cooking type.

I don’t know who lives in this suite…the smells could be coming from in there. I may have to lay on the floor and put my nose up to the crack under the door.

The hallway

So many doors to sniff under. But if I find the cook, it will be SO worth it!


YOWZA, what a sky!

2428629B-8BE8-4B6D-808C-A34FF0527171A beautiful Florida day decided to get moody late in the afternoon, the clouds marched in.

Right on cue, they spread out and filled the sky.8F870B3D-5AB8-4119-A185-142A296C1689Rain poured down, and all indications were that it was going to be a “no sunset evening.”

I’m glad I didn’t give up on a sundown show…the clouds couldn’t hold it back and it blasted a beacon of beauty.DBBA1941-E0CB-47DB-9723-04B625CD1958
