Hello Darling Duchess...
You must not be feeling well, you are still in your red plaid jammies, or am I late to tea and having a midnight snack?

I loved the cocoa, marshmallows so delightful, and I also loved my gingerbread cookie.

You are always the hostess with the mostess.

I have missed your blogs. I am always happy to see you out and about. Please take care.

Merry Christmas sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

The Curious Cat said...

Hey! Thanks for dropping by with such cheery words! I do completely agree with you - I remember my first big break-up and thinking it was the end of the world and then a year later sitting on a beach by the amazon thinking 'look where I am this time a year later!'. It is good to remember this! Still, right now it is early days and I'm still suffering from the shock that it has actually happened. I never thought it would! I thought we'd work our way through it all...but maybe it is for the best...just feel lonely and awful now...small steps at a time...I'll get to that 'beach' or some place good in the future eventually... xxx

Hello dear Duchess, I also love coming to your blog, there`s ALWAYS wonderful images to love and enjoy and die for!!!!!
Regarding my roses I plant them in a sunny place, add compost of my own, 1 or 2 times a year add some roses nutrient in pots and soil, prune them everytime a rose dries and do one drastic prune in the end of autumn or starting winter, and almost never use any quimic for infections, except when one plant is very damaged, most of the times they heel themselves...ah! I also talk to them and thank them for their fruits... I also caress them... and, that`s it I think... is really very easy!!
Lots of hugs to you
