More Walle

Yes, I am still alive! It has been way too long since I've added a post, y'all. I know it!

Walle is keeping me on my toes these days. It is hard to find time to blog when there is a bad little kitten to take care of. Walle still likes to play, bite, and sleep. He has added a few new hobbies, too. He hangs out Chip's favorite drum:


He falls asleep while playing on his Kitty Pirate Ship:


Asleep with claw still caught in a toy. Don't worry, I removed the claw soon after I snapped the photo.



Then, he wakes up from his cat nap and destroys his Kitty Pirate Ship:


He also has started meowing at our bedroom door at 5:45 AM. Ah, the joys of parenthood!

In the flower garden, the shasta daisies and coneflower are in full bloom.





The Knock-Out roses are on their second flush.


And I've got lavender blooming in the herb garden.

We've harvested leeks, Swiss chard, sugar snap peas, and lettuce out of the spring garden. And we've even havested a few squash and zucchini out of the summer garden. No tomatoes yet, but I am really looking forward to those.

I have a hundred other things I need to blog about, but dinner doesn't cook itself! Tonight I am cooking pasta with yogurt and zucchini (from the garden!) based on this Farfalle with Yogurt and Zucchini recipe from Food+Wine. I'm subbing whole wheat pasta. Yum!

Yum-o! What time is dinner? Walle cracks me up and I know he keeps you on your toes. His pirate ship rocks! Claw stuck on toy is hilarious!

Hehe!!! Walle has it made! I love the pirate ship, Sunni would just look at it like we were crazy. Can't wait to see him soon. Sounds like your garden has done well this year. Can't wait to hear what all you make with everything!

Thank goodness you don't have tomoatoes yet. I was feeling left out because everyone else seems to be eating BLTs on me.

Walle is so photogenic! He's adorable! They all go through that destructive phase! I can't wait to try that pasta recipe with my zucchini! I was running out of things to do with it already!
