Reggie is our little clown. What else to expect from a teenage boy.
At the age of two-and-a-half, he's still a kid in every way. His whole life is getting into trouble and playing and sleeping his day away. I've found that with cats, like humans, the males do not mature as fast.
He loves to play in the bathtub, usually with one of the pull tab rings off the top of a milk container. He can practically twist himself into a pretzel.
Look at those wild eyes!
He loves to chase the girls. Fortunately Isabel can hold her own and doesn't take any foolishness. Penny, who is showing fewer signs of settling into sensible adulthood, is right there finding mischief along with him.
Do you see the light spot right in the middle of Zip's guitar case? Reggie is in there waiting to hop out and surprise Deiter.
With all of his craziness, he is a sweet kitty who will once in a while settle down and sit quietly with us while we watch tv. I love the older more sedate cats, but it's fun to have a few wild young ones around too.
The lovely Isabel has grown into a delightful companion for when I'm knitting or sewing. She just likes to be quietly close.
All she needs is a nice little piece of fabric to lay on and some gentle conversation.
This past week Weis market had beautiful large heads of cauliflower on sale for $1 each. Horay!!!
We bought eight of these beauties for saving in the freezer.
I cooked one for eating now. They are some of the best I've ever tasted. Thanks, Weis Market!
A gardening friend of Zip's offered us some sweet potatoes so I baked them and they went in the freezer also. We are getting a nice collection of fruits and veggies to eat this winter.
I'm still religiously following the Weight Watchers plan. After two months, I've lost twenty five pounds (a mere drop in the bucked!). I'm trying to cut out all processed foods. It means a lot more cooking for me, but I think it will be worth the effort.
One of my favorite breakfasts! Flour tortilla stuffed with a slice of low fat cheese, egg beaters, spinach and pico de gallo. Fruit on the side.
Pico de Gallo
3 large tomatoes
1/2 med mild onion
Finely chop onion. Seed and chop tomato.
I let the tomato drain in a colander a while so the pico is not so watery.
Put onion and tomato in a bowl, add chopped cilantro to taste, salt and about 2 T. lime juice and a pinch of sugar.
Great with chips and as a relish on sandwiches and tacos.
I started a sweater after much debating and procrastinating. So many patterns I want to try and can't decide what to do first. I am making a top down v-neck pullover with a lace pattern from below the bust down to the hem. I forgot to take a picture of the pattern so will show that the next time.
It's a sport weight yarn. Knitting is going slowly.
Time to get to the kitchen for a cup of tea to warm me up. Its a chilly fall day here.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
