My Aunt Regina, who lives "across the bridge" in New Jersey. surprised me with a care package: a box of tomatoes from her garden. Organic, too!
Check out how lovingly she packed them. Each tomato is wrapped as carefully as a piece of fine china. It brought a little tear to my eye.
A reader recently asked about Buttons, and it made me realize I hadn't posted a photo of her in awhile. She is fabulous and has come such a long way since hiding behind the water heater when I first brought her in. She is the sweetest, most affectionate cat -- a featherweight, as you can see, weighing in at just under 6 pounds. Pablo loves her. They play all the time, and he is so gentle with her, especially compared to how roughly he plays with Bossa Nova. It's as if he knows she is petite and older. She's deaf and she is probably around 10. She has a thyroid condition and I think a touch of arthritis....but she is happy and seems to really enjoy her life here.
