In the past few days our temperatures around here have dipped a few degrees. Where the sun radiated warm Indian summer heat on my little piece of heaven, it now hides behind a swath of gray clouds and we shiver in the chilling air. I have an extra jacket on and still get chilled, but then I am always cold.
People are not the only creatures affected by the cool weather. Our horses, though astoundingly resilient where the weather is involved, have their back ends to the northeast to fend off the cool air blowing from that direction. The chickens roam a little closer to home today and this is what the cats are doing in the middle of the day…..
We have several cats and this is five of them. The time of day is 11am. They are all gathered on the rug to avoid the cold concrete.
They began innocently enough.
They succumbed ….
And before you know it, there were five.
Almost looks like a perfect way to spend this sort of day, don’t you think?
Just a glimpse of my little piece of heaven today.
Of course, what makes it even better is the aroma of manocottis wafting from the kitchen.
