Being Entertained

Jingles could barely contain herself this morning. As I was getting ready for work, she was being entertained by birds on the balcony.

First the sparrows.

Then the doves.

I get a kick out of seeing her try to get to them through the window.

After school I headed over to Shereen's place for lunch.


Vegetarian Indian food.





And Gulab Jamun for dessert.

She was in India this summer visiting family and brought me back these two pillow covers made in Rajasthan.

Our weather hasn't been quite as hot the past couple of days but the humidity has been high.

I tried to take a picture of this evening's sunset but my camera immediately fogged over when I opened the door.

I have quite the headache at the moment. Definitely will be hitting the hay early tonight. Hope your week is off to a great start. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

What deliciousness returned from India... first the food, then the beautiful pillow covers. I love them!
My cat does that too. I kind of feel sorry for the poor thing. She wants them soooo bad.

Take care of yourself, headaches are no fun at all!

Blessings, Debbie

Jingles is adorable.... Good thing for the birds there is a pane of glass between them.
We are blessedly cooler here. This morning it was 54 & today it isn't even in the 70's. It almost feels like Fall!!
Have a Great Day!

It's cooled off a bit here too... but then we only had a couple of really warm days this summer! Still the humidity is so high it seems much worse than it is...
Lucky you, I love Indian food (maybe it's my Indian great grandfather's genes ;) ) AND vegetarian food, even though I'm not vegetarian! And the pillow covers are gorgeous :)
I bet my Pantera would like to meet those doves too :)!
Hope you get better from the headache soon!

Don't know what all that food is, but it looks enticing. :)

Appears that you had a lovely day, despite the humidity and the headache. Hope the headache leaves promptly and that you have a good night's rest and a wonderful week.

Hope you are feeling better today. :)
Your sweet kitty cracks me up. Those birds don't have a clue how lucky they are that the glass protects them. Too funny. Wow, it even looks hot in the photo, too.
Hope you get a few cool breezes and some hooky time , too. :)

Blessings always

I can just picture Jingles licking her lips!

Kind of like I am seeing the tasty treats you had for lunch.

The pillow covers are so pretty....they would look really nice in my home, too! wink wink

Hope your head is better. Nothing takes the vigor out of you like a headache. Ech.

Warm hugs, my friend,
Jan

Hope your headache has gone away by now. I'm glad you have it a little cooler. Jingles seems to be able to amuse herself easily. Such a pretty cat. The lunch at your friends looks like a feast for the eyes as well. Diane

I used to get a kick out of my cat trying to paw the birds on the TV.

Looks like a great meal! Beautiful pillow covers.

Cindy Adkins said...

Dearest Tammy,

Your headaches are because of a certain barometric pressure. The weather station that I use does give that info too. On August 10, 11 and 12 I had those migrain headaches and than I got real sick on the 12th at night. Now I feel fit and happy so let's hope your headache is leaving you alone soon!
Oh, how I would have loved to savour that Indian food... We know the dessert too. Yummy and one never tires of it.
Jingles had a good time, poor girl trying to escape through the glass...
Love to you,

Mariette

Hope your head is feeling better!! Jingles would love to figure out how to open that door! Lunch was beautiful and I'm sure delicious. Our heat continues, too... though never as bad as yours. My car thermometer was 108 today in the shade. Stay cool! blessings ~ Tanna

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I'm browsing you blog and I so jealous. What a wonderful adventure you and your family are having.

I am sure that Jingles is going through the adjustment of not having you and the boys home during the day now. I would like to think he misses you. Good that he has the birds to keep him occupied... He, he!
Lunch looks relaxing and inviting as always with Shereen. Glad you were able to end your day with a nice meal and good company.
Hope the headache goes away soon!!

Have a good night!
Love,
Renee

Poor Jingles...you oughta let him loose someday on them birds just to make him happy.
As always, Shereen has beautiful presentation and those pillow covers are beautiful. This humidity is suffocating but I'd rather have that than dust. Heading out to the Avenues for some shopping tonight. Not looking forward to the crowd so will try to go early. Hope you're headache free now.

Chow chickie, Melissa

Tammy, Thank you for sharing your day with us. I enjoy peeking into a life that is so different from mine in ways but so like mine in others. I hope you're feeling better today, Friend.

What fabulous pictures of Jingles and the birds outside the window. I love how you captured them, making one feel as if we were right there to observe it for ourselves. The food looks delicious. I love tasting food from other cultures. My mother in law taught me to make lots of traditional German dishes, and I still make them today, much to hubby pleasure. Sorry to hear about the headache. I am a frequent sufferer myself, so know how awful it can be. Take care. And have a great week, inspite of such heat. ~Debby

Beautiful pillow covers! You eat so differently than I do. But of course you know that. Lately I just eat what I can find around the house. I had such a craving for chocolate last night, but alas , none in the house. Yikes!! Going to take care of that today!
Hugs cuz'
