Bennington Battle Day

May your Bennington Battle Day be peaceful!

I'll admit it, I've got a special fondness for my Oliver boy. 

This guy melts my heart like no other.

He's showing signs of getting older. He's not nearly as nimble and 
his girth has expanded over the past year.

I think his girth is from boredom. He gets locked on the back porch most nights and doesn't have much to do overnight, except eat. He also doesn't roam the neighborhood much anymore, he pretty much stays in the yard. Good for his safety, not so good for the lack of exercise.

Tuesday night, Oliver's enjoying some supervised inside time - his favorite thing of all!

Much to Oliver's displeasure, Theo's wanting to do the supervising!

Some of you guessed our news - we are moving!

The plan is to move from Washington State to Vermont in October! That's like 3,000 miles! Lots and lots of big change involved with this and just around the corner! Yikes!! Stay tuned for more details.

Fresh summer pesto veg salad.
Yum! Yum!! Yum!!!


  1. Vermont is lovely, the only state I've been through that felt like "home". (I grew up in the province of Quebec, Gaspe region.)

    Will your outdoor crew stay or go with you? How will you manage this, either way?

    Thinking good thoughts and sending blessings for all!

  2. Wowee! My mind swirls in the thought of plans for moving household AND animal kingdom! If anyone can do it, it's you! I know all the kitties will go too, and friends that have moved cats to new locations tell me that the old territorial hoohah disappears.

  3. It is a big move but I know you can do it! All the kitties will adjust also!

  4. will Oliver and Pierre stay with the neighborhood? I am glad of a pleasant change for you and family.

  5. That is a huge move! I am only a state away in Massachusetts.
