First, the scavenger kitty was up early begging for food. She always brings a gift back to me for feeding her, so I've been leaving it up to the neighbors to help out. (You may recall the snake from a few weeks back.) I don't want to hog all the fabulous prizes for myself! This week alone I've already gotten two dead birds!
Next up, after breakfast Violet decided she wanted a snack. The ever nutritious "Chicken In A Biskit" crackers, which in my attempts to fatten her up a little I let her have. I'm a vegetarian and they sound totally gross to me, but she likes them. What you don't get to see is how she turned the whole box over onto the rug. I would have taken a picture so you could enjoy it, too, but I was busy sweeping them all up. (Please note: Violet's hair all falls forward from the crown, so some of that hair is NOT bangs, but the longer side pieces falling in her face. I DID cut her bangs crooked, but lord, not as bad as it seems here!) Then we went to a family reunion, but it was not our own family's. Yes, strange as it seems, we visited a friend and his daughter at their family's reunion in the park. Violet made off with a bag full of candy, bubbles (well, not actual bubbles, but the liquid that makes bubbles, wiseguy) and a dozen little containers of Play-Doh! So, yes, she had her first bite of Play-Doh today! At least it only has wheat; no milk or eggs! I checked. Here she is with her friend.
On the way out of the park I snapped these trees by the lake. The colors are awesome. Too bad I only got to get them while still in the car. I definitely want to go back when more trees start changing colors soon. I love the fall!
