It’s been almost a month since Penny Lane moved in, and many people have been asking me how she’s doing. She’s doing great! She was rescued from the shelter and is living a secure life of comfort, ease, and attention. The real question how is the cat owner doing? :) I’m fine. Overall she’s a good cat– very affectionate. She follows me from room to room, sits beside me while I wash the dishes or whatever, and is very cuddly. But remember how I said that when I walked into the shelter and she’s the one who jumped up and started meowing at me? Well, indeed, be careful what you want, because she is a crier. I’ve had to train her with the use of a spray bottle to not sit outside my door and cry all night. I think she’s a lot healthier now, too. Her coat is shinier and smoother. She’s gained some weight. We’re doing fine. :) Here are some cute pictures:

The north side didn’t fare so well, only one coleus and the impatient survived-

But my greatest success is one spirited weed that has thrived in the middle-
