Thursday Dose of Cute: We're Having a Heat Wave, a Tropical Heat Wave

And Mr. Midnight (who is purring his head off on my lap as I type this) has been taking full advantage of it.

The Daily Donkey 12: Dolores Looking for Treats

©, the 74 degree (which feels very strange in February!) foodie farm blog where one of the nice things about living in a falling down shack is that when the cats decide to make their own pet door out of a window—and then 'decorate' the wall while going in and out—you don't have to freak out or panic, you just get to laugh and enjoy watching them use it.


  1. Beautiful Mr. Midnight is very aptly named. Yesterday was glorious here in Maryland, too. Only got up to about 70, but I opened the dining room window and got some fresh air in the house. It does give one hope that spring is on her way and let's hope she puts a rush on it. And I bought 2 bags of onion sets at Home Depot. Time to garden -- Yay!

  2. A beautiful black kitty! He looks a lot like my Maruschka.



  3. He's a gorgeous kitty, and what a spectacular photo! I love how the eyes seem to just float in the darkness! Keep this one around for the Halloween season! Thanks for sharing your country life with all of us!

  4. Hurrah for the heat wave.

  5. Yes, one of the nice things about living in a well broken in old place is not worrying about further dings, scrataches, and "decorations." They just blend right in with the older ones. It's a great cure for perfectionism!

  6. My dogs did the exact same thing to my back screen door. Now I have a doggie door! Saves me from getting up all evening to let them out.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
