Ivy is playing with her little black mouse. It is so funny to watch her scamper and jump and play with it. She’s a big cat playing like a little kitten and she kind of looks like a cow with her black spots lumbering after her toy.
Of course I wouldn’t say that out loud and maybe hurt her feelings.
For some reason she likes to take her toys in her mouth and put them in chairs, on tables, wherever. Then she will sit down, then almost immediately raise herself back up and retrieve them. I haven’t figured this one out yet.
Charlie is in his usual spot between me and the recliner chair arm. I don’t know what we’d have done without this recliner. Charlie and I both love it.
I did snap a good photo of her I think. Looking contemplative laying in the window. I wonder what she’s thinking about?
My back is still out from taking that cat to the vet, and the back stretcher I ordered now won’t be here till late Sunday it seems. That’s a week! Amazon is typically much faster than that. Guess it’s the holidays.
I’m thinking I might have to look into a mobile vet for Ivy, though I really love Dr. Poteet. We had a mobile vet for the dogs in Texas.
Have you ever had the Japanese money plant? It’s the one just above with round leaves, like coins. It is also called Pilea and is often seen in Scandinavian interiors.
The Chinese money plant, also known as the missionary plant, pancake plant, UFO plant, or just pilea (short for its scientific name of Pilea peperomioides) is originally from the southwestern Yunnan province of China.
Popular lore maintains that a Norwegian missionary, Agnar Espegren, took cuttings home with him in the 1940s, and shared them with friends and family.
Those plants were spread throughout Scandinavia, and eventually the world, as people passed cuttings between friends.
The Christmas stuff is all put up and my regular decor is back out. Like the candles and chimes hanging where the tree was.
I like the below vignette as it gets dark outside. It looks rather eerie, the Buddha sitting in front of the salt lamp, which could be construed as a crystal ball.
The plants are gathered around him as though he’s sitting in a forest.
Come January I will be hot on the trail of seeds I want to order. Last year, at Debbie’s suggestion, I ordered from Swallowtail Garden Seeds And I think I’ll order from there again. I was quite pleased with the zinnias.
Debbie, if you’re reading this, I can’t find a place on the website where you can either check in or find your old orders. I don’t recall which ones I ordered. Any info on that?
I have a doctor’s appointment in a little while. I’ve called the vet’s office to have them get one of Charlie’s medications filled because I want to pick it up while I’m over there in that part of town.
Then it’s back home to the pet babies.
