I know, who wants to see compost? And can you really even see it through all the leaves anyhow? No, probably not, but take my word for it when I tell you there is some lovely black compost mixed in this big ole bin. I also have two other identical ones that have the raw materials cooking into compost. But this post is really just to update you on Compost the kitten and to start you off on a funny weekend.
I found a little kitten just three days before we were due to leave on vacation back in July. No shelter in town would take her, and I could not find a home for her despite my best efforts. We made the trip all the way to Maine with this little kitten in our vehicle. Christine, my oldest daughter, volunteered to foster her until she could find her a home. Christine was successful! Though not in the way we all expected. My youngest sister Terri agreed to take Compost since Christine was leaving for basic training and could not find another home for the kitten. Here is what Compost looks like now. If you click on the initial post on Compost you will see she has changed quite a bit, and is no longer a tiny kitten. She is still a bit skittish around new people and quite a handful I am told, but has adjusted well despite her rough start in life living in my compost bin. We are all very grateful Terri took Compost in, even with her three dog-cats (yippy tiny chihuahuas) and her other two cats as well. What a houseful!
Oh yes, one more really funny thing to leave you with this weekend. A belly laugh. If you don't get one, then I don't know what to say. As many of you know I have been busy on Blotanical. I just love visiting AND commenting on other blogs and new posts. I have found some really great ones-so darned many!!!!!!!! This particular one is too funny to pass up and I had to share it with you. My compost post is perfect to go along with Indoor Gardener's post. Please go check out a short video posted at Indoor Gardener and found here. There is a warning posted, a warning to be prepared to laugh in my opinion!
in the garden....laughing.
