Cat boys resting in late August afternoon

The coral tree is starting to show signs of life after being butchered by the unskillful gardeners.

Ollie Puffy Pants has fallen on his side in the shade.

Augustus Sweet Pants is giving in to morpheus quite contentedly.

I cannot take enough pictures of this lovely boy.

And he is too sweet for any sweet words in human vocabulary.

In spite of it all, as I watched these two furry boys laying around in the certain afternoon sun I wondered two thoughts-
the fur coat must be quite warm,
and I wonder if we should be doing something more useful than staring at each other.
These cat boys do like to laze about while I watch them.

At this precise moment Ollie quoted Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a favorite of his:

"Do not forget that the value and interest of life is not so much to do conspicuous to do ordinary things with the perception of their enormous value."
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

At this moment I had two thoughts-.
Is it the heat that has made him such a philosopher?
Do I do need to pay more attention to the ordinary things I do?

Cat boys mustered up enough energy to fill their paws with kisses and blew them in the air for you...this last week of August 2011.



  1. Yes, ordinary, I need to pay more attention to them.

    Aren't unskillful gardeners annoying?


  2. Susan- I really need to pay attention to the ordinary seeing that that is most of what I do...

    and unskillful gardeners are both annoying and abundant! xoxo

  3. marie- they are furry, sexy, athletic from us three

  4. Your sweet boys are gorgeous as ever!

    It is the ordinary that keep us grounded, perhaps?

  5. Ah, what restful looking pictures...hope you have a good week, Mona! xo

  6. Shannon Ann- I count on the ordinary, can you imagine otherwise? Thank you for loving the cat boys, they love it. xoxo

    Thank you Anne- you too xx
