This may not be a "celebration" for many folks, but it is for Buck and me.

Many of you who have learned about us know we are "cat people" and have inside and outside kitties.

One of our outside kitties, Chiefy, a female, is one of our favorites. She looks like a dreamsicle, all peachy orange and white and has long, fluffy, luxurious fur. She's beautiful.

Some time ago, I noticed she was most definitely in the "family way," and began to count the days until she presented us with her children.

By the time last Saturday arrived, I was pretty sure she was close to "popping" and implored her to be safe and have her babies here at home.

Yes, I know, it sounds silly that I talked to her as if she understood my words.

At any rate, I didn't see her at all the remainder of Saturday and none at all yesterday.

When she showed up for breakfast and morning "milkie" this morning, she'd regained her girlish figure and I realized I'd been close to accurate with her due date.

After she ate breakfast I watched where she went and wasn't surprised to see that she headed to an area where our unused electric log splitter was. It should go where old log splitters go, but Buck hasn't seen fit to send it there yet. Instead, it's covered with a tarp and an old piece of carpet.

Chiefy disappeared under a space under the splitter and, unless my imagination is more vivid than usual, that's where the babies are. Either that or the wood splitter "meows."

So, Buck and I are parents once again and are looking forward to cute, fuzzy children frolicking on our front porch in a few weeks.

Awww thats wonderful! I love cats ..... especially little baby kittens. When I was little we had a cat named Dot who popped out lil ones all the time . I'd always disappear and even when our own cat wasn't involved. We had an addition on the back of the house that wasn't completed and in one room there was paneling leaned up against the wall. Well one time I went missing and mom was a frantic mess had all the neighbors looking for me and finally they found me curled up - asleep with the kittens behind the paneling. Another time ..... a frantic mother again requesting help from the neighbors found me in a neighbors garage....evidentally I went in and the door closed behind me and I was fast asleep with someone elses cat..... . I still love to cuddle with my cat but at least now I don't have to resort to such extremes.

Please take pics as soon as you can.

So much to be thankful for.

Today has been such a lovely day. Mild and sunny.
We went to Church last evening so today have had a really relaxing day.
I did some gardening this morning. It's such a delight to 'potter' around doing this and that.
Then I cooked DH's favourite dinner. Lamb shanks in redwine and rosemary, with roasties etc.
His recovery, which at first was slow, with some hiccups, is now sure and steady. He is driving again and able to go out socially; not just to medical appointments. I cannot tell you how grateful I am from the bottom of my being that he has come through this.
We have been listening to one of our favourite CD's of Kathleen Ferrier...absolutely wonderful.
Our neighbours also have had good news about medical tests; so we are having dinner together next Friday by way of a double celebration. We have such lovely neighbours.
It's a day when I sense so much the goodness of God in our lives. Just lovely
