Is it possible to get as comfortable as a cat? I don't think so. Though they sometimes pick the funniest places to sleep. Here are some French felines I've snapped, including ours, in the yawning stage, in dream mode, or simply out cold. PHOTO: Welcome mat-cat, spotted in northern Burgundy.
Our rescue cat Domino, sleeping in Ron's desk chair at the chat-eau. But wait, don't empty that trash can! Our neighbor's cat Meepia, also known as The Guest Cat, has snuck in once again. (She is sometimes also called Cupcake, in memory of the day this rotunde gourmand cleared several of them off of our kitchen counter).
In the COMMENTS: Funny, two readers mentioned Shaker Lemon Pie, which I had never heard of. And yes Suzanne, we'd love the recipe! Linda, how do we get on the list for one of those Christmas boxes? And going back to the fall roses, Paula I will make note of those varieties, as a few of those beetles have made it over to our garden too!
Christmas shopping tip: My friend Chris over at European Market has great presents, all carefully chosen from his travels in Europe. Like the gorgeous stadium blanket featured in Traditional Homes ’20 Gifts for Him’ gift guide this month. Check out European Market here.
Favorite Reads: Big book news this week: One of our readers, Josh Chalmers, has published a children's book, and it's a very special one you'll want to know about. It's called Change the World Before Bedtime , and it's about kids around the globe exploring ways to be generous and help their neighbors, friends, and the less fortunate. I'll be getting a copy for my grandkids. Felicitations, Josh.
