1. Brenda, the top photo of Ivy is beautiful. She is certainly a unique cat. Super-aware of her surroundings and most curious about everything in her environment. A live-wire if ever there was one. You really lucked out when you adopted her. Just think, you could have adopted a much less smart and interesting feline and how much more boring would your life be?? Anyway, she is definitely one of a kind and is really lucky to have a mama who appreciates all her peculiarities.

    Your description of Charlie’s land therapy is really interesting. I had no idea that sort of thing was available for dogs.
    It’s so important for him to be able to stay mobile. Better for his whole body and bodily functions.

    I’ll close as it is approaching bedtime and I have been so tired today I need to get to bed. Hope you are having a pleasant evening with your fur babies.

  2. Ivy is so beautiful, the first photo of her today really is the best. I really enjoy the stories you have to tell of her antics. Wish Charlie was better, but know how the cold has a lot to do with pain for all of us and our pets. Wishing you a wonderful lunch today, and a happy weekend with your two babies..Hugs from 39 degrees COLD WI.

  3. I’m glad you are enjoying Breaking Bad. I also did not think I would like it but my son kept encouraging me to watch it and I’m glad he did. You are right, the acting is excellent. I remember that episode with the fly – it was funny! I think I mentioned this, but don’t watch the Breaking Bad movie when it comes out until you have seen the entire series of shows. The movie comes chronologically after the series and it would ruin the end of the series for you.

  4. I wish I could get some therapy like Charlie, it sounds like it would be very effective! I admire your daughter very much for being able to flip houses, you should get her to flip a small one for you! Also, Breaking Bad is excellent. Have you started cheering for the criminals yet? That show was so well done, as you watch you may change your ideas and perceptions of the characters and their activities. I really enjoyed it, and like you, I thought I wouldn’t like it at first. I just finished Happy Valley because you mentioned it in a post and I really like that one, too! A third season is in production now, and I’m looking forward to it.

    1. Yeah, I’m now cheering for the criminals. I was trying to tell two of the therapists at Charlie’s therapy about the show, said I began to root for the meth makers. And they looked at me like I was nuts.

      1. I loved Breaking Bad and also would never have expected to like it, but….I used to spend a lot of time on the Food Network’s message board. A member(?) asked if anyone had decided what they would be watching this fall and wanted to mention that her nephew was producing a new show called Breaking Bad and gave a brief description. I was hooked and shocked within an hour!. Who knew? Now a movie is coming out and I really, really liked Better Call Saul.

  5. Charlie’s therapy sounds so interesting – how wonderful that they take such care with him. Your photos of both Charlie and Ivy are wonderful. Have a good lunch and a happy, peaceful weekend.

  6. Ivy is such a pretty cat and goodness how she has grown! And Charlie is as handsome as ever. It is amazing what physical therapy can accomplish for our furry friends as they age.
    Although I have not been commenting lately, I do read and enjoy your posts daily. I am usually sitting outside on the back patio these days reading the daily post on my phone. We are in the midst of having our master suite (hard to actually think of it as a master suite because the closet, bedroom area, and bath are quite small) renovated. The house is in a state of chaos and my furry crew is not happy with the construction crew in the house. And it seems like with this ole house (built in 1925), one never knows what will be encountered when you tear into these old walls.
    I really like your new boho table — love the shape, color, and the design.
