Two Hundred and Fifty and Counting!

Hello Everyone!

My "staycation" was over last week and I returned to the ol' salt mines this past Monday. All animals are created equal but some animals are more equal than others.... remember that?

Sorry to be so quiet but much has been going on...

So on this, my 250th post (who'd'a thunk it?), I leave you with not so much as a flashback as a flash forward.

A little bird told me to get to work. My busiest time of year, personally and professionally, is on its way!

I took time out to read some magazines.

And enjoy Nature.... oh yes, about THAT...

Yep, that is a sweet potato sprouting of its own free will in there with the (nogoodnik) tomatoes. It's playing a game called "Let's Aggravate Candace." With another sweet potato. Sprouting. With no coaching whatsoever. I hear both of them snicker when I walk past...

I spent time with My Best Peeps (you KNOW those are Kitten's [real] feet, right?)

over good food (we went to RuSan's, our fave place!) in person, well as by post.

AND post cards! Thanks,
Chris! Chris lives in Hong Kong with the Heroine of his story and Pommes the Wonder Cat and I highly recommend regular visits.

Say, speaking of Wonder Cats,

Kitty Boy continues to work on his table manners. A losing battle, trust me.
And finished up some blog friend goodies. Whew... !
I'll be back next weekend for more fun and hijinks -- but for now, hi ho hi ho, it's off to work we go, as well as waiting for My Moleskine Journal so that I can truly join in on The Sketchbook Project.
Take care.
Candace in Athens

Kitty Boy looks like he's multi-tasking, all that stretching exercises while he eats.

Looks like you had a good staycation! I prefer them to vacations, actually. Well, off to work you go! Red pen in hand? Glasses perched on nose? Dictionaries at hand?

Anne said...

Hi, Candace! Sounds like you enjoyed some well-deserved time off. Look me up over at The Sketchbook Project and mark me as a friend! Sounds like we have similar themes indeed! :-)

Oh so clever u r, where to start? Well, iwanted to comment so much i just signed up for google just for you!
Thanks for coming by the Treehouse & leading me here, so i can laugh and celebrate with you, your 250th blog post WOW i have a lonnngggg way to go; cats who teach themselves how to dine with mixed species; sweet potatoes who propagate themselves (wait that was wrong wasnt it?) and sketches that jump off the page impatient to BE.

HA! Thanks everyone for the visits and comments. Yep, I am indeed back to work and those glasses are certainly perching. Here's hoping Kitty Boy's next project is learning to cook so he can be self sufficient.

Anne, I will certainly add you as a friend on the Sketchbook Project. We Deep Southern Dishes have to hang together.

Thanks for your visit, Rhonda. I just looked at your profile (views) on Google, and yes, indeed. ONE! LOL.

Stay well and happy, everyone.
Candace in Athens.

Kitty Boy is adorable on his tippy toes catching a little bite to eat!
Congrats on 250 posts, that's quite an accomplishment! Loved your girlie in the tree, and that very expressive little lady with bird in hand!...How funny about the snickering sweets! What a funny picture you created in my mind!! You're such a hoot! Hugs, Paulette
