Just A Day At Home

I hope you had a very nice weekend. Welcome to August.
I can't believe that the year is once again going by so fast.
Erma Bombeck called August the longest month and not one holiday.

I finally found the Jack-be-Little's in the garden. They were
somewhere that I didn't remember planting them.

I hope I have lots more than these two. I try to stay away
and not count my pumpkins before they turn orange. :)

Do you remember in the movie "Babe." How Fly was always
kissing the pig? Fly was always kissing everything. Even the duck.
When I got Sasha, and she was a pup she would kiss my chicks
when they were little. It drove me crazy because I would think she
would react like a normal dog and realize she was tasting chicken.
She never did and still my chickens are never afraid of her and just
walk by her even when she is in her round up the chickens mode.

She loves Hobo's kittens. Since the kittens have turned out to be better
than television for our family. Someone is always outside watching the
cats. In fact, I often here the words, " Oh I am going outside to see the kitties.
This is Sasha watching the kitties.

Hobo is a wonderful Mom and she is never threatened by
Sasha. The kittens just watch with their little innocent faces.

They have even got used to the bath from the dog.
I guess it is just Sasha and her temperament. I have
never seen her kill anything. Well, I take that back,
she stomps bugs. Funnest thing you ever saw.
She will find an ant hill and stand and stamp on ants.

I told my husband I was going to write a blurb about him
in this post. He said it was okay. We had just finished
cleaning up after dinner. I asked him if there was anything
he wanted to watch tonight. He said "No, did I?" I said, " I have had a hankering to watch
Pride and Prejudice" (Colin Firth)
He said, " Oh good, I have been wanting to watch that too."
I told him that he was the best husband in the whole wide world
and I just had to tell you about it.

So I will be watching that and doing a little hooking tonight. I know my sidebar
says I am like Eleanor from Sense and Sensibility. I am afraid though, I am becoming
more and more Mrs. Bennett like.

I hope you all have a lovely week,



  1. i love your sweet pup!!! and those kitties! precious!

  2. Erma should've come to Canada then she could've had her August holiday! Which is today.It's a civic holiday. When I first moved here I ask what this holiday was representive of and was told that there was no holiday during August so they decided to create a "civic" one. Works for me.
    Dear Sahsa sure has a mothering nature doesn't she? Has she had any babies of her own?
    Mrs. Bennett-Please, no! Oh, horrors for your children and husband. I know you have to be kidding us' right? We have been Jane Austen fans for several years too. In fact we only own the VHS version of Pride and Prejudice with Timothy Dalton as Mr. Darby. I have seen the newer version and don't mind it, but I am still partial to the BBC older one. Have you ever seen "Little Lord Fonteroy"? That is a favorite of my husbands.
    Have a great Monday Kim.

  3. I just love Jack be Little pumpkins. I cook them up with butter and brown sugar and maybe a little maple syrup. Yum.

    Will Gus ever be as nice to my new cat, as your doggie is to your kitties? I wonder!


  4. I always get the most pleasant, inviting, cozy feelings from your posts.

    The little pumpkins are so cute! As are the kitties! And Sasha is so sweet!

    Just absolutely love my visits here.

  5. those kitties are just adorable, i ALMOST want one!! your hubby sounds like mine, he always wants to do what i want to do!!!

    now after 33 years we are like the same person. you can't really describe that, you just have to live it to understand it. a real harmoney!!

  6. The pup and the kitties are adorable! I'm raising my first pumpkins. Just two plants and they are taking over the garden. I cut them back last night. No pumpkins yet though but plenty of blossoms! Happy Monday!

  7. The perfect dog and the perfect husband? No fair! Would he feel the same way if you mentioned that you wanted to watch Colin Firth? ;)

    Blessings, Debbie

  8. Now those are the cutest pics I think you've ever posted. Completely adorable!

    I found the BBC Pride and Prejudice on Instant and I've had this sneaking desire to inflict it upon my family. Will they, too, call it "Pride and Prune Juice?" We shall see ...

  9. Oh I am showing Benjamin these cute..he so wants our cat back, so maybe one day we will have kittens again.

    Yes our hottest month..they are predicting around 110 this week...oh my, oh well, I am inside with the A/C...enjoying the song I posted this is rolling through my head...and painting my kitchen backsplash...too hot to be outside.

    I hope you had a wonderful evening.

  10. Like the pics. August is definitely here. We continue with high temps, too. 108 today I believe.

  11. I'm crazy about that little tan kitten. He looks like my cat "Pig" that disappeared and broke my heart. Your dog seems to be very sweet!

    We watched the newest P&P just last week! Hubby just walks by, smiles, and shakes his head! We're enjoying our 2nd time of watching Cranford this week. It's too hot to do anything outside and I need a break from canning every now and then!Just think, if you become Mrs. Bennett, I will have to be Elinor by myself. Besides, your nerves will be Mr. Bennett's constant companion!:)

  12. Cute kittens. I bet they are hours of entertainment. Sasha sounds like the sweetest pup - kissing kittens and chicks!
    I would watch Colin Firth in anything!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
