Signs on a Sultry Summer Day

It's HOT outside (and not in a good way either).  :(

So whilst I indulge in a cock-a-tail (or three) with Mistress Maddie's spirit hovering about, I decided to post some scenes about the house.

Miss Oreo tries to beat the heat by airing out her undercarriage

Miss Gigi likes it better in the sun on the porch

And Miss Nyla likes her bed in the air-conditioned living quarters

NOTE to Dr. Spo: the kitty drawing is colored pencil by a friend of spouse
It's there to inspire you to "make good art"

In the backyard, the hosta is blooming
 
Black-eyed Susans (why not Veronicas, or Mildreds)
 
Day lillies
 
Belladonna
 
 Wild geraniums

My grandmother used to call these "wild strawberries"; have never eaten one; don't know if they are poison or not
 
In the garden, the cukes are a-growing
 
As are the tomatoes
 
And the cherry (grape) tomatoes
 
And the peppers
 
A cucumber flower (with a curly cue); just like Walt's!
 
My "tequila sunrise" shawl in progress
 
Now time for a refresher cock-a-tail; gotta go unload the dishwasher, start a load of laundry, and throw ingredients in the breadmaker (1 loaf of honey oatmeal coming up!).

  1. I have never seen so much pussy being aired out!!!!! Beautiful garden, and bounty arriving. I must admit I miss read the post title. I though it said sluty. For me may be perfect. The Mistress may be a tramp, but never a prostitute!!! And try streaking naked through sprinklers, that should cool you off XOXO!

    1. and after spouse and I take off our pants...all pussy all the time! ;-)

      it has taken a long time for the spouse's veggies to start this season; do the cukes remind you of any of the houseboyz?

      you would know about "sluty", but you are NOT a cheap-ass ho like those kartrashians!

  2. Like Miss Oreo, I, too, like to air out my undercarriage, though there have been times when it's gotten me arrested OR a date.

  3. The term "tequila sunrise" evokes a lot of very warm memories......I like the shawl.
    Miss Oreo strongly resembles my cat Scratch when she's trying to beat the heat. I feel like rolling on the floor too, but I'd never be able to get up again. Advancing age is a bitch......

    There's nothing more pleasing than a summer garden. Unless, of course, it's a shirtless summer gardener.

    1. I now have a red triangle going on the shawl.

      I too cannot roll on the floor due to arthritis. s'ok, I'mma not missing anything.

      spouse sometimes gardens shirtless, but you can see better on grindr!

  6. Did someone say Honey Oatmeal???? Your garden is so pretty and dainty. I too have a vegetable garden, and everything seems late here too, except for the cherry tomatoes.

    1. I did say honey oatmeal bread! great for breakfast toast or sammiches. and all natural too (water, yeast, flour, honey, oatmeal, olive oil, dry milk powder, salt). no preservatives, HFCS, GMOs, etc. and costs about 50 cents to make!

  7. Great garden pics! And kittehs, too. Enjoy the heat!

    1. AHA! you saw my linky-luv, didn't you? :)

  8. Isn't it sad that cats can't take off their coats? Must be like wearing an eskimo-style parka all year round, even when indoors. I think you ought to spend more time fanning them, A.M., which you can do that while imbibing your tropical refreshments.

    1. I wonder what the pussies would look like if they took off their coats? don't worry about all of us staying cool, dear raybeard; my house has central air conditioning. set at 74 degrees F, we all stay cool whilst outside it's blazing bloody hot!

      now at 3a, I am returning to bed; everyone else in the house is asleep.

  9. Nighty-night then, A.M. But you can look forward to the morrow - and I can tell you it's a good 'un, and I know 'cos I'm already here..

    2. Welcome to Saturday, A.M.! (But it was already that when you previously posted.) Anyway, when you get round to 'kicking arse' just make sure you there aren't any of your little babies within foot-reach!

    3. NEVER the pussies; all 3 are currently asleep. spouse is outside doing some watering. I am doing some house chores and am about ready to eat lunch.

  10. The kitties looks so peaceful and comfy, and Miss Nyla looks so much like my Torrie.
