Ina's shrimp salad with some pasta, and a pretty little kitty catching some Zs. That's all. Nothing much. (And a whole lot, really. Favorite kind of day.)


That pasta salad looks delicious! Aren't nothing much days the greatest?

Oh my - we LOVE Ina's shrimp salad!

Always enjoy seeing your photos and reading your words...even if it's "nothing much". There's a feeling of serenity here that I thoroughly enjoy. Thank you for that.

I have total envy of your kitters - curling up and taking a nap on a gorgeous quilt, wish that was on my 'to do' list today :)

You make me smile...thank you!

Adore your kitties. Adore your dog. We are a dog and kitties family too. Plus a large gray rabbit named Greyfrier . Oh, the wonder of calm and quiet days at home with the "loved ones".

I'm sure you've heard this before, but you take the most incredible photos. Thank you!

yummy and sweet...and that blouse....oh my!

Looks like a perfect day! I made a pasta salad last night. It had fresh brocolli, cucumbers and tomatoes in it with the colored noodles (can't remember the name of them). Yours looks very yummy!!

I'm loving all of those photos from your last post too!


Reading your blog is the visual version of a cup of tea. Ahhh

This looks like a perfect day!

We also LOVE Ina's Shrimp Salad!!! I make it quite often in the summer. Soooooo GOOD!

Yea! Stuff from the garden! Would love to try the salad;love pasta salad!
Even a short post is like a day outside from you. :)

I love Ina's recipes; everything I've made of hers turns out wonderful. The hook holding your blouse is beautiful.

Love the pretty little kitty on
your absolutely beautiful quilt.

You take absolutely beautiful photos!! I could get lost in them!

I was wondering if you could tell us about your door with the wall paper on it. Or is it fabric. You may have talked about it before. I would love to do something like that on the front of my daughter's bedroom door and maybe on the back of mine.

Is everything in your life extra pretty? Lovely pictures! And now I am hungry.

Recipe for that delicious looking pasta dish, (pretty) please.

Around our home we call days like this, pajama days.

No errands, stay at home, catch up on the fun things, sit with the dogs sort of day.

ah, life is good ... smile

I'd say you are doing things right!
We are inching our way toward the weekend and a lot of celebrating... dad, graduates, and birthdays... what we are most excited about? Pajama day... we vow to be as lazy and content as humanly (*kittyly?*) possible.

A very pretty little kitty.

We had a strawberry kind of day. For some reason they taste so much better coming from your own garden...
