Cat Chair for Tabitha

Tabitha found a new spot for grooming herself this morning. I was sitting on the opposing chair removing my boots and she hopped up on hers. This photo gives you a closer look at one of my light fixtures bringing in more color. Does that rust spot on the bluestone disturb me? Yes, it does but I'm way too busy to obsess over it the way I did about my paint color. I have to wash all of my outside windows starting today and through the weekend. The gutter guy is coming later this morning to run a long strip of bent copper under my roof shingles so my half round gutters won't overflow from behind and rot my cottage again. He is adding one more downspout to a long run in the back that becomes Niagara Falls during a downpour beside the sliding glass door to my mother's old bedroom and sitting room. Water is definitely the enemy of any house, right? I hope this is the solution I'm hoping for. See you later.

The details are certainly pulling it all together now...the dark brown gutters and downspouts, the black wrought iron lantern...even the black chairs complement the overall look and color scheme.

Window washing now. What magic elixir do you use for cleaning windows? Better yet, what magic elixir do you drink to get all your energy?

Gail...I am going to use the first DIY recipe for window cleaner below but I might add some cornstarch too. My outside windows are filthy. Actually the inside ones are too. The cornstarch might be the "grit" I need.

I have no secret. I really have to push myself to do inside cleaning of any kind.

Adorable Tabitha. I just got 2 new grandkitties added to my family. 4 mths old. "Willow" looks just like your kitty and her sister "Molly" is orange and white.

Have a blessed week.
