duck & cat

Each springtime, my favorite resident pair of mallards returns. They will spend the summer visting the brook often [I think they nest in a bend a little further up] and become a daily routine to see floating by. First sightings in the spring have varied from in the brook, swimming in large puddles beside the cottage or across the street, to just merrily walking down a muddy Olive Street. Today they decided to traverse a snow bank to check out some birdseed that had swollen as it soaked in the melting snow, and in doing so, provided much entertainment for Peach.

sneak peak

While the remodel on the Brook House is still undergoing, a sneak peek at the kitchen's double ovens. And the awesome country boards. Such cool custom work.

This morning was a coffee morning! I have been wanting to try KittyTown ever since hearing of this amazing women-owned business whose slogan is "Drink Coffee. Feed Cats." With every bag sold, they donate to a shelter's general fund the cost equal to feed a kitty there for a week!
Every. Bag. Sold.
Ethically sourced, chemical free, each blend named after a kitty... and very yummy!

Will be making these coffees available to folks on Olive Street!
