  1. S - the photo of the cats cuddling looks like a 2-headed model! Looking forward to purchase info on your greeting cards. Cooked for 3 hours yesterday afternoon - loved it!

  6. Susan! I **love** your photos and wish I could have a window herb garden like you have -- and snow like you have. Here in Virignia we are struggling to get any snow at all. Thank you so much for "sharing" Andrea with me. I've been on Paxil for years and find comfort in finding there are others like me.

  7. Wow, dreat post dear Susan, lovely photos of Oliver and Virgil, a beautiful portrait of Winnie, so kind that you rescued the little bird, the food looks delicious, your winter garden looks so lovely in that soft light.
    I enjoyed Andrea's post, sometimes we just have to ask for help when we have tried everything to help ourselves.
