Little Children Love Cats


CalicoCat 2

I call this my Calico Cat.

 Thought I would try my hand at painting it with flowers in different colours.

I put transparent coloured paint on the black background then painted in white to bring out the multicolours.

Hope you like it  –  it will give you a different idea of painting.


We could talk about Cats today……they are beautiful creatures Great and Small.  They can be lovely companions and make great company.

If you live on a rural property then you are fortunate to allow your cat to run free but in town it is a different matter.

Over the years we as a family have had different kinds of cats as well as other animals i.e. dogs, goats, horses, pigeons, chickens, bantams, fish, pigs, sheep, rabbits, white mice, gerbels  –  one time even an Ass was left with us for a while on one property…. but he eh/ahed so loud that we had to let him go to another home.


This was our boy Cat called Harry.

 He loved to be in on everything even to be photographed with  the flowers.


As much as we love our Pets do you know that God our Heavenly Father loves them too, also our Children He especially loves them very much.

Just thought you may like to know:

that in the Bible  –

Matthew: Chapter 19  verse 14.

Jesus said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”


So if you happen to see a child today or someones pet

or another creature of any sort – just know that they are special – it is lovely to be kind to them.


What about this for a recipe for today:

Watermelon Salad

Watermelon,Mint (fresh or dried) Spring Onions/Scallion or Spanish or Red Onion. Which ever you prefer.

Cut Watermelon into balls or 2 cm.dice, place in large serving bowl,

add the chopped up Onion,

sprinkle in the fresh or dried mint to taste.

Cover and cool in fridge until needed.

Mix well and serve Cold with sliced – Cold Meat, Chicken or Fish.

“Flowers for the Altar”



Why Judge?

Flwrs on Chair

These flowers look good on this old Cane Chair.

Ready to take to Church – they do look comforatble just sitting there. I think the Geraldton Wax sets the Basket of Flowers off very well.


Well what to talk about today then?

Thought I would put this in to encourage anyone to eat a good meal, even at lunch time instead of just rushing to eat something quickly.

It is good just once in a while to choose something different to eat.

The other day I had a lovely lunch here is what I had:

Cream of Cauliflower Soup (Home made from the freezer) Just had to heat it up. Plus a Sausage sandwich. (Cold Sausage left from yesterday’s dinner)

I always toast the buttered bread on one side in the frying pan first, only had a small piece of sausage so I cut it up and put slices of sausage on one half side of the toast, then covered it with Horseradish sauce (to help clear up sinus?) made it into a small sandwich with the other half of the toast – very nice. !

Then had the other slice of toast with Blackcurrant Jam on and Coconut Cream on top.

That was my Gourmet lunch. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then I had to get on with an ‘Oil Painting’  for someone.


Here is a  Bible verse which gives us food for thought.

Matthew: Chapter 7 verse 1

Do not judge, or you too will be judged.


One thing what I believe is that it is not a good idea to judge what others eat.

We are all different and all need to eat sometimes a bit different to each other.  That is not to say  that we should eat a lot of unhealthy foods…… or offer them to others who may have a special diet to follow for their health.

But how lovely to eat something that we really enjoy as an enjoyable treat.

So have something today that is special for you.

Have a special – Breakfast.

Have a special – Lunch.

Have a special –Dinner.

Maybe have something

special to share

with a friend.


* Have a lovely Day *
