I know he's kinda evil...

but he's just so darn cute...this is what he was doing at my feet yesterday while I snapped a pic of the pagoda candle holder:

Nosleepus Siamesus...

I think I can change'm. Or maybe not.


Another thing that made me smile yesterday was this:


White Bird of Paradise flower bud...


I am so excited! It's finally happening! It's flowering, it's flowering!!! I love birds of paradise - both the bird (as in the tattoo on my back) and the flower. And guess what:

2nd flower bud...
There's another one. Two. Holy moly. These bad boys cannot open soon enough for me. They're a great plant if you live in my area, Hernando County, FL. You can buy them small for cheap. They grow super fast. They grow super tall. They give off baby plants at the base regularly for your splitting pleasure (can you say fantastically frugal? now four times fast. sorry.). They're oh so very tropical looking. The frosts we've had haven't bothered them in the least. Oh, and nothing seems to eat them. Perfect, right?

What a beautiful cat! I don't think I believe he could possibly be evil...even "kinda." -Julia ;-)

haha! :) Thank you. Oh, but he is. And he so gets away with it. I'm so tired. But then I look into those crossed eyes and all is forgiven. Atleast until 3am. (check out my previous blog on the subject of Mr. Nermal and how he tortures me)http://flhomeblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/earsplitting-howls-of-persistant.html

Oh my I love your cat! All cats are at least a little evil, but that's part of their charm, isn't it?

So jealous you live in Georgia. So beautiful there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Oh wow you take great pictures!! I love the one of your cat..lol, he doesn't look evil just sneaky :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

I'd tell him about the wonderful comments regarding how good looking he is but he already knows it, lol! Thanks from me, though!

I live in Florida - although as I've explained to Caroline...online, I think Georgia is a nice state, too. My little blurb on the side of my blog is in regards to the Republic of Georgia and their current state of crisis due to Russia.

It was my pleasure visiting both your blogs!!! :) I'm coming back for more!

Be careful with those Birds of Paradise. I had one that got WAY out of control and I ended up having to totally get rid of it.
I'm not too far from you, BTW. I'm down here in central Hillsborough county. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hi Melodie :)! I can totally see that happening. I've going to put more of them in a corner in my yard I just had cleaned out in hopes they take over back there. The one (well, now it's several) I've got out front I have to stay on top of. You're not far at all! & my pleasure :).
