Here is the front of our house. I have planted the walk way with flowers to make it more homey.
This is my fat cat Puck (A Midsummers Night Dream). He guards the front of the house
A closer look at my labor for flowers.

Hamlet is demonstrating the intoxicating experience that the wonton brings on. I have given them to friends and family with cat and all of their little devils LOVE them. Cat who normally don't like cat toys are loving them. Kitties love knitted objects and they love catnip. I am thinking of putting some up for sale on Etsy, but before I do that if anyone likes them I can make one (or more) up for you. I can do many different colors as well.

These goblets are all from Target (love that store). I like the yellow or the green a bit more than the clear. Our kitchen will have a yellow, red and green feel to it.
I have also wanted to get a kitchen cart! These three are again, from Target. Personally my fav is the wooden one. The last one is nice too. I could have that in the dinning room to hold other things as well.

Sunday was the grand adventure to Pine Hill to get plants for my yard. I ventured out with my Mum and we enjoyed our time. This place is VERY large!!!
There was a cute little gray cat there. Soo sweet.
The roses were absolutely beautiful. However they require a lot more sun then my yard could give. I picked out a great assortment of flowers. Which I will reveal in a post later today.
When I got home though, Tom had just left to go to Lowes to get bug killer when I walked into this!
Hamlet. . . (topic of everything) was sitting on the window ledge above the kitchen sink. BAD BOY!!! Though I couldn't resist taking a picture.
It all began when I became allergic to a lot of different foods and also my stomach could not handle processed foods either. So. . . that enlisted me to begin my adventures in cooking.
Since I have been job-shadowing at the local library, I have had the chance to browse their books quiet a bit. Here was my first haul of cookery-bookery (Julia Child)
OH Julia Child!!! I had to pick this up. I do not have a copy (though I dearly want one) and even though I probably couldn't not cook anything out of this book for fear of what my stomach would do, I don't care. I love Julia Child!!! (duh). She was a determined woman who never gave up. I love that and it just makes more determined as a woman to get published as well.

I will make it easy for everyone and give it a dead give-away as to one of the locations on our destination. You must comment in order to find out the answer though. . .
It is where Julia Child and Paul Child were first stationed when they got to Europe
That is TOOO easy. :)

decides to throw away all inhibitions and jumps up onto my lap and splat! He steps right smack dab in the center of my toast.
At this point I am completely unaware of what just happened. Of course I yell and he goes sailing off and I had to make another piece of toast. Meanwhile the “prince” is over in the corner licking his paw.
I have blogged in the past but this time it is for real. My fiancé Tom and my two boys (cats rather) Hamlet and Nanaki have moved into a lovely little house on Fern Street. We moved in late March of 2010 and have been settling in ever since.
My first few post will be to catch you up to speed on how we got to where we are now.
It was a dreadful winter like always in Michigan and I was lazily sitting on our couch in our living at our apartment. My fiancé Tom was playing StarCraft and I was surfing the internet. I came across a real state website and started to browse the houses and condos in our area. Tom leaned over asking what I was looking at.
"Just looking" I said. Of course that is where everything starts is with the phrase "just looking." I'm sure Caesar said "Just looking" when he was about to conquer Rome.
This "just looking" turned into "just buying" a few weeks later. We secured out lovely little house in no time flat. There was also the nice little incentive to buy now with the tax credit.
We began to pack up our belonging which was no small task. I am a firm believer that when you move in with someone you accumulate a lot of STUFF. The boxes mounted and the anxiety was building. We closed on the house and moved our stuff in during the next two days.
It took awhile for everything to feel right. But after nearly two months, it feels like home.
