The garden is growing rapidly now. The zucchini plants are blooming, the little green tomatoes are appearing, and the green bean vines are reaching the tops of the trellises. Picking time is coming soon. We can't wait!
We finally named the kittens Gizmo and Daisy. Gizmo is a handful. He's always getting into mischief. Daisy, on the other hand, is as sweet as she can be. She rolls her eyes at Gizmo when he's being crazy. Gimli loves "his" kitties and takes good care of them, and after the first day, they weren't afraid of him anymore.
We got two 8-week-old kittens on Saturday. One is black, and the other is grey with stripes. They are so tiny and cute. We're thinking about naming the black one Porthos or Gizmo, but that's not certain, and we can't think of any girl names for the striped one. We've had various amusing suggestions such as Elvis and 'Cilla, Blacky and Stripey, Tigger and Pooh, Haldir and Galadriel, etc. So if any of y'all have suggestions, please leave a comment.
They're staying in the camper with us until they get big enough to avoid being coyote bait
My camera battery went dead as I was taking pictures, so I don't have one of the black kitty yet. The little striped one made herself at home on top of our farming books (see, we need to pick some names so I don't have to keep saying the "black one" and the "striped one").
