Monday it rained a good four inches here and then more on Tuesday. Today it started cloudy but the sun is now out to enjoy. When the sun light hits the chest on the males well only one word can explain it and it is BRILLIANT.
The Kitty Justice is we are THANKFUL for no damage on the Hill but our hearts and prayers go out to all who were effected by the last two days of storms.

I have planted Lilies of the Valley all around the house and the cabin. They had just started to bloom when I picked these for Mimi to enjoy. The little flowers at the bottom are just one small bunch from my Vibriumim bush. Both have a unique fragrance.
The Kitty Justice is this is a cool way to enjoy flowers more often.

The first Friday morning in April outside my bedroom window, I heard "Gobble, gobble, gobble."
From the morning rain there were rain drops all over my window BUT then it dawned on me the adjoining bedroom would be further under the eves. Quickly, I retrieved my camera from the library and got a step stool(this is a natural thing to do if you are one of the short people) to stand on so I could capture the above photos.
A little fact from our TWRA calendar, turkeys have 5,500 feathers of which 18 are long tail feathers.
The Kitty Justice is I wonder who counted those feathers to provide us with the fact.

She was absolutely THE BEST WOMAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN. She taught me quite a lot and I am thankful of the wisdom she imparted. When folks say I remind them of my Mother, well I puff up like a true bandy hen. No better compliment can be given to me.
The Kitty Justice is today is her birthday and I wish I could say to her "Happy Birthday."

Do you have a phrase that can make you instantly see the color red and you have to bite your tongue to keep from getting in someone's face. If you want to rub Kitty Justice's fur the wrong way all you have to say is "YOU NEED TO DO ----" No matter what it happens to be that I need to do per you, that phrase is like striking a match to brush soaked in kerosene. Hey, I am 64 years old and if I do not know what needs to be done now, well don't tell me as I do not wish to hear your suggestion. My big Sis was the world's worst until I just flat told her not to ever use that phrase on me again because I was 64 damn years old and I knew what I needed to do. Since then she has never used that phrase again in my presents. She and others may still think I need to do --- but she is not saying it out loud to me. Yep, I may know what I need to do but it just might not be the time or the place to do it. As Clint Eastwood's character, Gunney Highway said "You have to adapt, overcome and improvise."(Can yawl tell I like to quote, Clint) The main thing I need to do is keep a good attitude and be HAPPY.
The Kitty Justice is to keep your council to yourself as this Kat travels her own path.

Friday morning at five a hard rain storm came through. It was a weather alert for some folks and I was thankful to hear the news person say no one had been hurt. Anyway, I wanted to take a few photos of the yard. The buttercups by the rake are no longer standing at attention as the heavy rain was unkind to their spines. The second photo is of the old seeder and you can see my little pine. Beside the pine are buttercups and garlic close to the little sun dial. On the far right edge you can see my snow ball bush has a little green on its branches. A big oak with a three foot diameter use to stand in the spot where the seeder is located. The huge shell use to line the driveway of Waveland ( see 8-22-07 and 8-24-07 post). Cuden Mary Lu ( see post 8-23-07) would go to Florida and return with shells. This is the only shell I know that has survived time. The creeping Jenny has really crept. I took about 3 or 4 sprigs a few years back from my neighbors yard and look how
much it has spread. You can tell in the second photo that there are a few bags (41) of mulch to put out on my flower beds. Prince on his way home from work Wednesday and Thursday brought a load home each day. The Pin Oak tree has not shed all its leaves and I will just have to wait to have a leaf free bed.
We may have a few of those pesky winters, dogwood winter, blackberry winter, etc etc. but they do not last long so I do believe Mother Nature has kick Old Man Winter back to where he came from. The Kitty Justice is you do not mess with Mother Nature.

When he comes in the door he will anounce he has me a surprise. I know he has either been to the Gift Shop at St. Thomas West , Hallmark or sometimes a big box store or nursery or even a road side fruit stand. Whatever, he brings me either big or small makes me feel so very special because I know I was in his thoughts when he made the purchase.
He meant to get only two but the one in the red dress reminded him of my mother, Vinia therefore, she got to come home with him too.
The Kitty Justice is I treasure my Surprises but most of all My Prince.

In case you cannot find a copy, here is the recipe
1 11oz can sauerkraut
2 tomatoes. sliced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Thousand Island Dressing
1-8 oz. can corned beef, shredded
8 oz. shredded Swiss cheese
party rye bread for topping
Spread drained sauerkraut in 8 x 12 dish. Top with tomato slices. Dot with butter and dressing. Cover with corned beef. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Remove casserole from the oven. Butter one side of the rye bread and place it butter side up over top of the cheese. Return to oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer. Serves 6-8
The Kitty Justice is to say "Thank You Virginia Suttle.
Some Kitty Justice notes, I might put the sauerkraut between paper towels and squeeze out excess moisture. I would thinly slice only one tomato. I used sliced corn beef instead of shredded so I might shred it the next time.
The Kitty Justice is yawl can use my helpful hints or not. Enjoy
