a special saturday

A little while ago, I stepped out the east-facing back door and took this picture. If I'm awake in the wee hours of the morning, I will see the moon again through the west-facing window next to my pillow, and perhaps take more pictures. I often do. This sleeping on the porch idea is working out as beautifully as I had hoped.

Today marked the start of the Christmas season for me: the annual tag/bake sale benefiting the Pat Brody Shelter where I first met Kitty Rex, Moxie, and Della. This event is literally the only time I approach shopping with both happy anticipation and a complete absence of mental debate: if something takes my fancy, I buy it. This year I came home with a typically nifty collection of treasures. Suffice it to say, being able to buy two aged hammers and a homebaked apple pie at the same location is my idea of shopping success. I will post a few pictures in a day or two, when I unpack all my little bags and boxes. Right now, it's time for sleep.

Thanks, Pat Brody Shelter.


  1. At first reading, I thought you bought to aged hamsters. Glad about the hammers. :)

    1. LOL! Although Moxie and Della might appreciate hamsters even more than the new catnip toys I bought at the fair :)

  2. I'm definitely intrigued to see what else you found at the fair - especially when the wares range from pie to hammers!

  3. Ahh--what a sweet photo--give all the fur balls a hug from me--enjoy the new treasures-
    enjoy the moments, di

  4. Hammers and pie? That's impressive! lol

  5. I love the moon too. But I sleep so deeply that I never get to see it very much. Hammers and apple pie? What a fun event!

  6. Fun stuff! Hope you can show your goodies soon.
