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.

Sorry I haven't posted much lately.
Things have been quiet round the house.
We did hear back yesterday from the engineer who is designing our new water system. The design is finished and has been submitted to the County and the State. He heard back from the County, which made approving noises. Now we're waiting to hear back from the State.
It may be a while...we live in a "critical wetlands area".
Cross your fingers, all.
I'd like a working water system in place before winter sets in.

And here's a pic I took last week at the river.
Enjoy.

Just as most of the flowers in my garden have stopped blooming, the local salt marshes have suddenly burst into a riot of colour and I'm in love.

Despite all the rain, my garden is coming along very well.
Look before you leaf. )
