Announcing...


This post has nothing to do with baking, but I thought I'd share my good news.  We will be bringing home (in December) a new cat--another Ragdoll.  She's 81/2 years old and was one of the breeding females at American Ragdoll in Lebanon, Missouri.  I found this breeder, one evening after losing our sweet boy, Bailey, and called the owner, Stacy to ask her if she ever had a kitten to match the variety of Ragdoll we had, please let us know.
Bailey, 05November1995 ~ 19July2012
 Well, that hadn't happened yet, but this precious girl came up needing a home and those blue eyes just drew me in.  I've thought about her for sometime now and last night, made the decision.  My hubby said it's my birthday and Christmas present and that's fine with me.  I'm happy, XOXO

  5. I've missed not having a "buddy" following me around, walking on my sewing and art projects and sitting on my chest wondering when breakfast was being served:-D I admit it...I'm a crazy cat lady. Her name is Two-Toes Dancing, but Ari said, "Mimi, I like Rosie as a name." So Rosie it is!

    1. Actually, Susan, I live in Washington. I'm flying to Missouri to meet up with my husband, who will be on a business trip there and we'll go together to pick her up. However, the breeder does ship anywhere in the continental United States.

      Thank you for being a faithful follower too; I'm so happy I found your blog, XOXO

  11. Oh how nice to have a kitty in your home again. A home is not complete without a cat upon the hearth as they say. I've had a lovely time looking at all these amazing goodies in the posts prior to this one. Whoever sits at your holiday table will be very blessed.
