These photos were taken as I was creeping along on our interstate I 40 heading east to my sister's house. I rarely leave home during rush hour and I did not do so this day either. Nashville may be the new "IT" city but the traffic rivals Atlanta. With no improvement in traffic flow or mass transit, which most of the mayoral candidates run on improving, we will soon be one big parking lot. Puppy goes down to Fairview and gets on 840 to go to the lake and the distance is further but the traffic is not as bad as going through downtown. 
Five new hotels plus lots of high rise condos are in the works,therefore with more people coming to town, we do need a plan to handle the traffic. 
The Kitty Justice is any suggestions to Metro Nashville and the State of Tennessee would be appreciated.

Puppy has had these Owls I painted down at the cabin. However, with his rowdy cat Bandit, he could not display them where he wished. Therefore, I brought them back to our house. 
The top one was the very first Owl I dry brushed back in the seventies and then I liked the method so well, I did lots of dry brushing on future items that I painted in ceramics. 
Now that Owls are very popular I thought these little fellows should be put out for others to enjoy. I have been an owl since high school because that was our mascot. I can still sing our school song. 
The Kitty Justice is to display your WHOOOOS.

White Pumpkin

When I went up to see my sister during our shopping therapy, I found this lovely white glass pumpkin. I picked it up and then put it back and then I announced to her  that if I did not get it, I would regret it later. 
It makes an elegant centerpiece for the dining room table for Pumpkin Month and can even go for Thanksgiving too. I might change the leaves from green to autumn colors for Thanksgiving.
The Kitty Justice is to always go with the first instinct.

 Here is a red wasp nest I took as a reminder to watch out where I put my hands. 
I had come upon some cheap gladiolus bulbs at Dollar General store and was in the process of planting them in front of the Boxwood on the right side of the Ginkgo tree when another plant was in my way. Without any thought of danger, I held up the plant that was in my way and then it happen. On the knuckle of my pointer finger right hand a pain shot up my arm. I pulled my hand back to find a red wasp stuck in the top of my glove. I could not remove it fast enough to stop him (had to be a man) from continuing to pump poison into my hand. Now I was on my knees and I am rather short so the nest was less than 3 feet off the ground in the Box bush. The Kitty Justice is to watch where you put your hand.

Mimi's Birthday Flowers from Puppy

When the sun hits her birthday flowers, they look translucent. 
 This photo is how they look September nineteenth and below is how they looked the end of May. 
I set them outside the kitchen window and for six months they have bloomed and bloomed to the enjoyment of Mimi.
The Kitty Justice is to use Bloom builder by Miracle Grow weekly.

 When I get up to take Maggie for her first walk in the morning, I take a flashlight with me so I can keep up with her. Then back inside, I feed her and Mz. Lilly. I get them fresh water and then head outside to put up and refill 3 seed feeder and hang 4 hummingbird feeder. As I was hanging the feeders Hoot called out his little song from down near the pond.  Back inside, I clean out the dish drainer and put on coffee. All of this was done before, I went outside to watch the sun rise. As I walked down the porch, I saw a spike deer at the corn feeder and a little hare playing under the apple trees. As I set back to watch the sun come up, I listen to the wakening of the song birds. It seems the Nuthatch are the ones who start the joyful noise. 
 The sun arrived and it is much farther to the East than it was on the first. The colorful sky indicates that fall is on the move however with the last few days of temperatures, you would not believe it is coming. 
 As I continued to watch the suns path up into the sky, I wondered how many others were doing the same thing. Being a morning person I love to get out and watch the world come alive. 
 This is the last photo I took before the camera and I headed to the kitchen and a cup of coffee. Just as I poured my cup, Maggie was ready to do her work (go get the paper) therefore, I took the cup with me to see if the paper was there. Since the new neighbors have moved in there are 2 papers on Saturday and Maggie gets both of them in her mouth and brings them up. I take one to the end of the neighbors driveway and repeat to Maggie that this one is Jim's paper. I think she now has gotten the hang or else his was not there because today she only brought up one paper. 
Back inside, I put the paper out for Mimi to read and then enjoyed my favorite bread. I have become addicted to Publix's English Muffin Bread. I had two slices with Pumpkin Spice Cream cheese spread on them. 
The Kitty Justice is I hope your day started as nice as mine.
