Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

The gardens are over the ankles deep in leaves, the geese fly over in squadrons, honking and the chipmunks are crazy with busyness ...
I throw out whatever I think they might like, fatten them up for the months ahead ... so far they do appreciate pistachios in the shell, no salt .
Not to mention the bird seed that gets thrown out ... some days I look out the windows and see cardinals, blue jays and doves, little sparrows and chipmunks .. all noshing on seeds.
A Peaceable Kingdom ... with Minette watching every move, tail twitching, the rest of her still as stone.
I wonder what she would actually do if she were out there ... she has no idea she is so small.
In her mind, she is a lion walking around the house .. she is so brave, my little tiny cat.
Today I grabbed her off the bed and swooped her up in the air and she made the tiniest of little sounds .. eek !
I held her close and apologized, she must have felt like she was flying .. or being thrown.
So we had a lovely little love -in on the bedroom floor , which ended when she bit my nose.
That kitten has the sharpest teeth, my hands are covered in tiny red dots .. my arms too.
I wonder what people think when they see my arms .
I don't care what people think when they see my arms.
I have been nesting.
I have recipes.
Today will be pastries wrapped around tomatoes and gouda.
It will go nicely with the homemade soup.
Have to go now, the kitten just fell into the sink.
