My Christmas and Thanksgiving cactus are blooming away.  They always bloom early due to being outside all summer.  I've decided that  that is okay as it is a good excuse to buy more come Christmas.

I had forgotten that I used to make lots of cachepots to hold small, plastic pots.  Think I'll make some more!  They are simple to handbuild and fun to decorate.

This is one of the blue jays in the feeder that Aloysius and Kiki are staring at in my last post!

Feeding birds has been strange this year.  We started putting out seed in September and have tons of birds coming to the feeders.  We counted seven jays yesterday, plus chickadees, nuthatches, finches.  Last year we had a few chickadees and nuthatches, but they only showed up when there was snow on the ground.  Go figure!

We are still enjoying a warm fall.  It's supposed to go up to 60F. today.  I could live with this all winter!

Enjoy the week end and,as always, thanks for stopping by................*s*

I wish I were Aloysius Flyte, or KikiLaSois, or The Friendly Kitty, or Winterpup.  To them it's kust another day, to eat sleep and go bugf#ck.
