A Cat Day Morning

It's raining. The doors are flung open to let the wonderful sounds of raindrops in. The cats are staying close to the doors enjoying the falling rain--from a distance. It's a good soaking rain and just what we needed.

Abby is staying close to me. She's not one to get wet. She also knows if she strays very far from me, Bella will jump her. Evil kitty.

Bella is enjoying her first precipitation up close. She is running to and fro. Water has never bothered her much. She's more like a duck than a cat when it comes to water running over her.

Before leaving this morning for Asia, the hub ordered me this gorgeous (and humongous) orchid for mother's day. Isn't it the prettiest? He also sent mom a box of candies. She always enjoys that.

A rainy day always makes me want to bake. Don't know why. I had this package of blueberry muffin mix, so I just mixed it up.

I sat thinking of my friends and my family as I ate a muffin and sipped my tea. My mug was given to me by my dear friend Edi who is back in Los Angeles. I think of her each time I drink from it. The pretty vintage napkin was sent to me by wonderful Vallen. I sat and read the card my grandniece sent to me. So sweet.

Other than the hub leaving, it was a good morning.

I love listening to the rain's so soothing. The photo of the cat at the door is great.

Your orchid is gorgeous!! And your little table setting for your muffin and tea looks so inviting. I can almost taste those muffins!!

Gorgeous orchids, delicious looking breakfast and as always, the kitties are divine! I love the rain! (to a point!)

Love these photos (awesome orchids!). Your cats are beautiful, and I enjoy the glimpses of your home and yard - it's all so pretty. I, too, love the rain - we don't get it often, but when we do, I open the windows (unless it's winter). Oh, but my bunch of cats - they do hate the rain.

So anyhow, I could go for one of them thare muffins!!

wow i have to say i am envious of rain like that...where you can open the door and enjoy the humid warm and the scent of dust being washed away. not since living in illinois have i experienced rain such as that. we have cold, dank, dark and 'wet' rain here. i would have enjoyed having a muffin with you!

Muffins, orchids, a cozy day with cats. Perfect!
I hope you're having a nice day today!
