Meet Pete. He's one of the original feral cats in our neighborhood. Mr OP dubbed him Pete because of the color of his fur. He's orange and a really pretty orange at that. Mr OP's friend in high school (Pete) had the same color hair - bright orange - thus the name.
Pete's a climber. He loves to perch on top of the pergola and stare down at the world going on around him, although he does a lot of looking up too. We don't really mind Pete all that much, he's kept the mice population down in the yard and barn, not to mention the house. It's all the other cats and kittens that have invaded our neighborhood in the past year or so that we're not too happy with. Pete is fixed, so he's not the culprit of the cat population boom.
The weather has been fairly warm this past week, but it's also been over cast and rainy too. I've put away all my decor de amore (wow a rhyme!) and am ready to get out my Easter/spring things. I'm really looking forward to hyacinths in the markets. I LOVE that wonderful smell, it just says Easter to me.
I know that I didn't mention decorating for St Patrick's day. We don't really do anything special for it other than maybe cook something in honor of the day. Who knows, I might surprise myself this year and create some kind of decoration, but in all reality - it's not likely.
Do you decorate or do anything special for St Patrick's Day?
