Meet my new friend ' Lil Jerry '

Isn't he adorable. My husband had a customer who knew we loved cats and saw how sweet our cats are so he decided this fella could be at home here. They could not keep him any longer. The first night he was very scared but the second night he decided to join us upstairs. That night he decided to jump on the bed with me and stayed on it the rest of the night. He is warming up. For some reason he likes to stay in the basement. He shows up around 8 and then wants attention. My other cat is having a hissy fit. Oh, about the name? That is the name that was given to him so we are keeping it. He is 2 1/2 years old, front declawed and neutered. Oh one more thing not having to do with cat's. Did anyone watch the season premiere of The Middle this week? I laughed until I cried. It was HILARIOS!!!!! Let me know if you did. TGIF blog friends and enjoy your weekend. ~~Earlene!!

This weekend

I decided not to show many wedding pictures for privacy but I have to say it was a great time and very sweet.
We had a chance early Saturday before the wedding to do a little sight seeing. Managed to go to Ripleys Believe It Or Not. If you ever get a chance you have to go. Next time your husband complains about wallpapering show him this. I thought it was hilatious.
If you can enlarge the small sign read it. This guys carrer was hanging wallpaper and he only has one arm! I am not kidding. Next you think you have trouble figuring out what to wear look at this!
You want to see what big and tall means?
And these are my feet standing in his foot prints! He was the worls tallest man. 8 feet 11 inches tall!
Paintings underneath a dead bat...Happy Halloween!
And a very cool building... and... I want to know does anyone know why glass balls are on the top of this building? I hope you liked my pictures. Have a great week friends. ~Earlene~

Sunday Evening

Well the sale is over and a few more things gone. We had a lovely Sunday dinner this after noon...roasted chicken, parsley potatoes, zucchini with tomatoes, and salad. After dinner we packed up the truck, went in for dessert, and headed home. I promised you some pictures of her beautiful home.
That is all the pictures I took of her home today Thank You Lucille. Now this is what I came home with from her sale. I have always loved this sweet set.
~~Good Night~~ ~Earlene~

Garage Sale

Well the sale went okay. Any time I can thin out a little in my basement of things I know I will never use again is a big help. I do have my eye on a sweet table and 2 chairs Lucille is selling...I need to make up my mind today. I will take a picture of it to show you when I go back ovet to her house. I need to get my lawn cut today. We had wonderful rain all night rain during the sale, so my lawn looks green. I will also get some updated pictures of Lucilles house for your Sunday treat. ~~See you back tonight~~ ~~Enjoy your Day~~

Few things to share

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend:0) I started my Fall decorating outside today.....not much...but it's a start. My sister gave me the grapevine that I used to wrap around my scarecrow and it worked perfect. I have had the terra cotta pumpkins 8 years now. I found them at a shop in Delaware Ohio.
Yesterday my BIL came over to hang a shelf he made for me to fill this big empty white blah on the side of my house. So yesterday morning I spent half the morning washing green mold of the siding with bleach water. That side (North) never gets direct sun so I have to do that every year. I'm sure it will changed around many times, a fun spot to display.
Love how the plants grew around my garden shed.
Today was a beautiful hot day (90) with this wonderful sunset I wanted to share.
~~Goodnight~~ Earlene

I Love My Cats!

Cats are so darn cute...look at these two. We were entertained this morning on our porch while drinking our morning coffee and relaxing. Buddy trying to fit in a basket much smaller than him.
