kadee kazoo's march3110_1 When my little sister was little (she is six younger than me) she would set up a "restaurant" during the summer break. This eventually led to me typing up and laminating a menu with items such as pizza and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Since that time she has grown up and is currently pursuing her medical degree...but that doesn't stop her from making her delicious soups, pizza, chocolate cherry cookies, and her latest venture...homemade Indian food.
I mentioned to her that I'd be dropping off a piece of strawberry pie to her today and she said to help myself to the leftovers from the dinner she made last night.
So there I was in Kadee's kitchen eating the very delicious food she made (don't know what it was called) while she was tucked away somewhere in a classroom or lab learning about some part of the body and how it functions. I thought to myself that Kadee Kazoo's is still around, it is just where ever she is.

Lily and her cub are so precious, look at them all snuggled up together. These shots make it look as if I was right outside their den (that would be amazing!). No, I was here just taking screen shots. Take a peek, they will leave this cozy nook soon. Just to hear the baby purring away as she eats or Lily bathing her from toe to head is pure sweetness.

the napping house... march1410_1 march1410_2 march1310_1 and other stories.
On Sunday morning the white jasmine greeted me with whispers of spring, sunshine and the most beautiful fragrance. I plucked a handful of blossoms and strung them along a thread to make a garland to hang inside.
All the kitties have been keeping an eye out for a new bunny friend who has been visiting, he was nose to nose with Ladybug through the sliding glass door the other morning. Unfortunately he likes to dig up and eat the roots of some plants that I like very much.
Recently I have done a lot of gift buying through Etsy, and every single item has been wonderful, so here are some links if you are looking to buy for babies or little girls...

little scraps march0910_1 of paper
Case organizes his thoughts on random neon post-its that find their way into the laundry, backs of envelopes from opened mail and pads of paper from the local realtor. At one time I suggested a single notebook to contain his notes about scientific experiments, football players, things to remember, etc.... after a short time the random bits of paper were back.
Today I came across one that had four words, "Casablanca" and "The Big Lebowski." He wrote it on Oscar night and tucked it in his jeans pocket, a fleeting thought, two movies I know he would like to watch with me...made me smile at how simply sweet that is.
