A couple of months ago my friend Trish, the Heavenly Maven from The Katnip Lounge (and Mommy to THIRTEEN of the most entertaining and engaging kitties you will ever meet!!!) mentioned that they had their own lemon tree in their yard (they live close to Las Vegas) and that she uses her food dehydrator and makes dried lemon slices. "Oh, that sounds yummy!" I said.
Last week, in the mail I got this wonderful package of lemony goodness! I haven't had time to try anything but a nibble of one - sufficiently lemony flavor. Can't wait to come up with ideas for their use!
Thank you Trish!

Oh, you thought I meant THIS Princess -Princess Charlotte of Cambridge (ie Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana...) Sober looking little thing, isn't she?
This is Lilah's brother Sammy - (pre-sold, can you believe it!) They are actually almost a month old, so I need to get out and take some new pictures. His horns are going to be massive and she has just the sweetest face.
Nothing says spring like new lambs!

Thank you to everyone of you for your kind thoughts and prayers about Bella. He still has not returned and as I do not have a sense of his "spirit" anyplace close, I don't know what else to do but think of him in the arms of his angels.
Meanwhile the kids have stopped sitting on the back porch and staring into space, and they are eating again - not that I was worried that they would starve to death, I think Gracie must weigh about 20 pounds! But for the first 10 days or so, they just didn't seem that interested in food.
But they definitely are interested in snuggles - big time - ask my how easy it is to type with a cat on your lap. And he doesn't "perch" - he kind of spreads out to be as comfortable as he can get - laying on my keyboard tray - silly cat...
Both The Shepherd & I have had bad head colds/cough/laryngitis/sneezy type stuff. I even took a day off work last week - I think George was the only one who got any sleep that night.... I probably should have taken two days off especially since one of my jobs is to answer the phone, and that is pretty hard to do when you sound like a squeaky toy
We sheared a couple of weeks ago, and I have lots of pictures of pretty fleeces - I'll try to post them this next week.

The thin late winter sun does little to brighten my day - saddened by the disappearance of our sweet kitty Bella.
Even George & Gracie seem sad. They sit on the back porch and stare off into the distance - like I do - hoping to see her in the shadows
And they are kind of off their feed too - where as last week, they would chow down twice a day on a bowl of crunchies and 1/3 of a "hockey puck" can of "stinky goodness" - now, they barely eat 1/4 of a can, and not so much on the crunchies either. (which, really, isn't a bad thing, they are both a little (well maybe a lot) pudgy)
I just don't like the not knowing.

So pretty soon, he was eating on the back porch, then inside the back door, then, why the heck not, in the kitchen with George & Gracie.
Bella disappeared on Thursday. Coyote?
Thursday night is the first time since Bella came to live with us that he hasn't met me at the gate when I came home from work - hmmm - bad feeling about this.
I've called the neighbors and put it out on the neighborhood facebook page that he is missing. Hopefully he's just locked in someone's garage and will be home soon. Keep good thoughts... I'll keep you posted.

A co-worker and her husband recently celebrated their anniversary on the island Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean - her pictures were so pretty, I asked her if I could share them with you - especially for any friends on the east coast - spring is out there somewhere.....
George, Gracie & Bella liked the picture of the burds just lined up like a buffet
I wonder what it was like before?
And other kinds of fauna...
Remember the warm sandy feet when the cold winds blow.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures of paradise - Have a great week!
