We've had mainly rain here so far this summer, resulting in lots and lots of indoor activity, but finally we had a pocket of sunshine. Just enough to enjoy more of all that green stuff out there - before it started to rain again .... 
The kittens are now down to six, as the tinyest of them died the next morning. Our daughter sits in front of their 'cage' most of the time, naming them - and naming them again. Deciding who looks like their mother, who might be their father(s) (and oh yes, we believe 'him' to be in the multiple), who's argumentative, who's submissive and who's just sweet. (All of them, of course). Our son is having his yearly vacation (staying with his best friend just outside town for a week), and hasn't seen them yet. He's thrilled, and I suspect we'll stay clear of the usual argument on when he'll come back home this time.

Love the new header! And that 3rd photo down...I just can't get enough bright green moss. It's still relatively cool & rainy here, too. I must admit, I wouldn't miss it if Summer never came this year. Sorry to hear you lost a 2nd kitten :-(

Lovely pictures! Love to keep up with ypur blog anyway!bI feel a little melancholic when I read it. Seems so natural, the way you live. All of our family (some of my children already have their own family's)travel to Norway and Sweden at least once a year. It gives a fresh energy and inspiration for our life here (NL).
Over here it is rather autumnish too. We had a very beautiful early spring though.
Good health to the kittens and their mother! And wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Yes! The third picture is specially beautiful. Most parts of France need desperately some rain - send us some of yours, if there is too much. I wish you a sunny weekend!

So sorry for the little kitten - that's the side of nature and life that is most difficult to take. Hope you enjoy more sunny days!

Since you aren't posting lately, I am forced to go back and re-read your old posts, which are blissfully just as nice the second time around. :) I hope all is well with you.
