My sister has 2 cats; Button and Zuzu. I took some pictures of them so I could show some cats on my blog.
Zuzu likes the room I'm sleeping in, but I don't let her in for the night. However, she will go in there any chance that she gets. Here she is lying on my pillow (which I had embroidered for my sister a few years ago).
My sister got a "house" for her cats, which they sometimes go into. Katie, notice the fish that I made for Zuzu for Christmas.
Zuzu on the coffee table.
This table in the living room has a drawer with catnip in it. It also has some old slides that we were looking at to determine if they should be tossed or kept. Zuzu, of course wanted the catnip and was sticking her head down in the drawer.
This is Button. Button takes longer to warm up to people, but she is a great cat.
Boxes always make good beds.
My sister is a piano teacher and Button is helping with the Mendelssohn Concerto! Always likes to be where the action is.
One day we went to a historic house in the next town that we saw as we were driving past. We never knew it was here, at least I didn't. It was actually a house on the Underground Railroad! I didn't take a picture of it. Very interesting though. There are more places like that in the area.
We also went to another historic house that had a doll house which was a replica of another house close by, so we drove by the original home which someone is living in now. The docent said that a famous movie was made at this house, but I don't remember the name of it. Doll house and original house below.
I haven't lived here for many, many years and growing up we weren't aware of all the history! Now that I'm old, history interests me a lot more.
One more house that we went to see was the house where my grandparents lived. After we moved to the suburbs of Chicago (into the house that my Grandpa and Dad had built), my grandparents lived with us while my Grandpa built a new house for them about 1/2 mile from our house. A few days ago my sister and I left a note in the mail box asking if we could see the house and the owner called us and invited us to come over. My Grandpa built the house in about 1949. We don't know how many owners have lived there since 1957 when the house was sold, but this couple has been there for 23 years and have made a lot of changes to the house. It was beautiful and they were so gracious to let us come in and look at it. See below.
No quilting is being done these days. I'll be going home on Tuesday.
