Who's been sleeping in my chair???That would be Abby . . . .
Abby's very favorite spot in the house is my Lazy Boy - whether I'm in it or not. If I'm in my chair, I get a bird's-eye view of her tail end as she snuggles to get as close to me as catly possible. If I'm not in my chair, she snuggles up to my pillow instead. Should you ever see me wearing light colored clothing, I'd be willing to bet that I have cat hair all over my posterior. I'm afraid I can't keep ahead of the cat hair, but with winter coming up, the black fur should match my wardrobe - not so lucky in the summer! Lucky thing she is so loveable!

Note: Abby seems to bear a slight resemblance to a certain kitten named Stripey.

The Nature of Autumn
(Ooops, that sounds a lot like "The Nature of Natalie," doesn't it??)
To look at that spider, it is difficult to get the gist of how big it is. But, it is one large spider and the web below is the web it is spinning on the front deck. It is also very large! I should knock it down and kill the spider, but it is kind of fascinating to watch. I took a couple other shots, but the only one with the spider actually in the web did not really show the web - it looked like the spider was just floating in thin air. Spider watching is kind of fascinating - until I get bit by the spider, I guess! :)

For my parting shot, this is a beautiful hibiscus. The plants on either side of the deck are still blooming and really full of buds yet. They are gorgeous. Thought while I was spider watching, I'd take a picture of something less Halloweeny than spiders.

Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful autumn Sunday (and Monday, too).
