Long lazy weekend

It was Bastille day on the 14th, that is our French National Day. I took a day off on Friday, so I enjoyed a long weekend.

Bastille day, and the day my grand-nephew was born. As his Austrian father put it, that baby is a true Frenchy:-) and a big baby too, 4.600kg ...

The first two days have been very windy, forbidding fireworks wherever there was a danger of bush fires. The temperature dropped a little, which is fine with me. The wind made the cats very nervous. Billy, the shy feral cat, wanted to play and snuggle with Osiris. But she did her Drama Queen act, hissed, groaned and run away all the time. After two days, they were all exhausted. Billy reverted to plan B. And came to snuggle with me for the first time in daylight. The red strips are my leg... Not bad for a shy cat...

Choupette helping on some patch project. She wanted to nap on the patches, or near the iron. I disagreed, so  she made the project bag hers... I'm surprised she did not try the purple box...

Now is that time again: time to prepare the clothes and food for Monday. I confess I'm not thrilled...
I hope you are, and that you'll enjoy the coming week.
Take care!

I'm pretty much dreading Monday, too, since it means the end of break for me! The cats are so cute, and it looks like they enjoyed having you home!

Billy the shy cat is so cute and my favorite among the cats being shown.

I'm pretty sure that you love the long weekend as I do.

Hello Vero! Your kitties are looking very comfy and satisfied. They do love to be cuddled, don't they? And we love to oblige :)
Your sewing projects are wonderful, as always.
It sounds like you've had some of the same heat that we've been experiencing this summer. I'm happy to report beautiful temperatures here at the moment, making for perfect gardening days.
We've even had a bit of most welcome rain.
How did your daylilies do this summer? Mine have been fantastic, despite the hot, dry conditions. They loved our wet spring and apparently stored enough water to produce abundant blooms.
I haven't been blogging much and have missed my blog friends. It's good to catch up with you!
