Recently, I've been reading about Bryndzové Halušky, a Slovakian national dish.  I figured that any recipe consisting entirely of potatoes, cheese, and bacon could not possibly be a bad thing. 
It's quite salty, but absolutely delicious.

Hobbes was very curious about it, but stopped short of taking a bite.
He looked at me as if to say, "Mama, you know I'm not supposed to eat bacon..." 

I've been in such a cheesy mood lately.
One day, all I could think about was crackers with Brie spread.  YUM!

Things have been going along quietly at home. 
Our cats are as naughty as ever.
Three-year-old Maggie sleeps a lot during the day but charms us with her chirps and trills.  21-month-old Hobbes is still a live wire.  He leaps off furniture and stalks food with a passion.  But his early-morning snuggle sessions are delightful.  Both cats enjoy sunrises and watching the birds every morning.

They've also discovered the tree frogs that frequent out sitting room window.  The frogs (and hummingbird) often look in the windows to see what we're doing.

froggie!

Every summer, American Green Tree Frogs hunt around our sitting room windows.  They're very used to people and will even peek in the windows to see what we're up to.  This one was waiting patiently on the shady hydrangea leaves during the hottest part of the day.

Scene from our house at 2am:

I stepped outside to tuck in the lettuce plants, whose cover had blown off.
      *noticed how warm it was outside*
      *also noticed a certain noise*

Me (to Stormy): Step outside and tell me if you hear what I hear...

[livejournal.com profile] stormsongk stepped outside and closed the door.
Broke into a huge grin and started jumping up and down.
Came back indoors - still bouncing and giggling - saying, "PEEPERS!  PEEPERS!  PEEPERS!"

Yes, folks, the spring peepers have arrived.
Let the rejoicing begin!

Still working around the house.
Things accomplished this weekend:

• took down cracked, ancient roller-shade from kitchen window
• removed ugly curtain from kitchen window
• washed south-facing windows to let in more light
• re-potted a young fig tree in hopes that it will finally fruit this year
• folded and sorted 1 box of clothes to send to Goodwill
• threw out old, expired medications

Also watched a flock of Cedar Waxwings descend on our yard and eat everything in sight.
I love those little bandits.  :)
