Happy Halloween

My first collage with the trees and hills in fall color with Bandit the cat. How he has grown. LOL
Today the weather turned really chilly and it rained some in the AM and then the wind blew and blew this afternoon. It was not raining men as the song goes but raining leaves. We now have an abundance on the ground. Then right before sun down, there were a little sun shine and some blue sky coming through the clouds of the day.
The Kitty Justice is that all are Happy this Halloween.

Current Art Show at Centennial Art Center

These are some of the artwork I thought was well worth seeing. There was one artist who did only downward brush strokes in white and pastel colors and then gave them a name. I think his art work was a poor choice to place with these other talented artist. 
The Kitty Justice is to see if any of these have sold.

I brought out some fall decorations for the dining room table. I found the little bird while The Pope and I went shopping in Springfield. When we worked together, we would shop together all the time. If you saw one of us in the store, well you would see the other one. We figured it out and it had been forty years, yep forty years, since we had gone shopping together. It was like we had stepped back in time and not missed a beat. If you look closely, you can see the bird's wings and back are oak leaves. My MIL thought it would look better without the glitter but I think not as it enhances it's appearance. I had intended to change the candles from pink to green but alas, not enough green candles in the house. I also wanted some new one and half inch diameter pillar candles for the candle holders in the living room. We stopped at the Hallmark shop in Belle Meade and there was not any one and half inch pillar candles. Rats, I even checked the internet and seems there are not any to be found.  I did find the color green for the dining room but they only had ten candles and I need twelve. If possible I also like to pick up 4 extra ones  of the same color because that is how many I have on the table and we always burn those. They ordered the willow green color and I am waiting for them to call and say they have gotten them in stock. Prince goes by that shop twice a day so it will be a problem to pick them up. 
The Kitty Justice is to put out a display that will work all of fall and then I can change it for Christmas. 
BTW Am I the only one who would like to push back all the decorations in the stores, until the SEASON?

At eight thirty eight I finally took a photo of the fog this morning. Both Prince and I went out with Maggie to try an see the Lunar ellipse but alas it was not to be. We did however, see "Hoot" on the same limb of the walnut tree so we went inside and cracked open the kitchen door so we could listen to his song. Just as I sat down with my first cup of coffee, he flew off toward the pond. He must have a favorite tree he sleeps in down there during the day. 
Since I did not get to enjoy a visual of Hoot, I watched the sun rise and color the fog. The sun is up high now and the fog is still in the valley. 
The Kitty Justice is to get out today as rain is predicted for the other days in the seven day forecast. 
BTW We can use the coming rain on the hill. Enjoy today Yawl.

Double Wedding Ring Quilt

My Mother, Vinia Kirby did the quilt top before Puppy was born and she gave it to me to finish.  After Puppy was two years old I got all the material and set the quilt up downstairs and later I brought it to the library as the light was better. My MIL and I would stop and quilt a ring and then go about our way. My intentions was for Mother's quilt top to be done by me and Puppy's Mimi. Alas, my back problems and Mimi's health made it unable for us to finish. We had done 3 full rows and a half, so I put it away until I could either finish it or find someone. 
My SIL from Ms. to the rescue. In her water exercise class she came in contact with a lady, Mae Ray, who had a church quilting group. The Parkway Pentecostal Church ladies (Maxine Toten, Marie McCory, Janet Yuma and Mae Ray) finished the quilt for me. I plan to put a label with every one's name on the backside of the quilt in order for Puppy to have the history. 
The Kitty Justice is it took a LONG time in completing the quilt but it was so worth it.

Gooooooood Morning World. Had to catch the sunrise today as tomorrow we are suppose to have rain. It will be more welcomed than a sunrise because we are sooooooo very dry on the hill. 
Again this morning "Hoot" visited the Walnut tree behind the cabin. I got to see him fly off and he has a grand wing span. 
The Kitty Justice is it is about ten degrees warmer than it should be which will create storms in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. 
Have a grand week end yawl.

October wonder

I took these two photos ten minutes apart. The first at six twenty-six and the second one at six thirty-six. I sent another one taken this morning to our favorite weather man, Paul on WSMV.
Later I retrieved the newspaper for Maggie and saw that the bucks have begun to rub on the 3 Leland Cypress again. They have eaten everything they can find. Like the tomatoes plants along the bottom porch along with all the Hosta leaves. They had already eaten every green leaf off the two Oak Leaf Hydrangeas that I planted last year. The Leland Cypress and Oak Leaf Hydrangeas were planted near  blue bird houses because I read the birds liked a something near by so the baby birds could land on just in case their fight was impaired. I also noticed on the driveway that the Hickory Nuts are raining down and making 4 little boats when the outer shell breaks. Did any of you every play with them in the water? I did and loved it. You could have a fleet in no time flat. Anyway, the squirrels have not made as many crumbs on the driveway as they have in the past. Wonder if the nuts are not any good?  Also, the big Walnut trees lose their leaves first and then down drop the giant green balls of walnuts. If you have never stepped on one of these on a hillside, well you do not know how fast you can slide to the bottom of the hill. Yep, done that too. 
Prince and I were enjoying the sun rise , when he saw this huge bird fly into the top of the Walnut tree out behind the cabin. It was Hoot and he was a sight to see even in silhouette. 
The Kitty Justice is the deer should leave my plants alone and eat the shelled corn we provide them.
