These photos crack me up! Yaffa is using Sebastian as a pillow. This is so funny!

Here is a birds eye view of it. LOL. Sebastian looks like he's flying in his sleep. hahahaha

Something new and soft

We got a new rug for the living room and boy is it comfy! Sebastian and Yaffa are enjoying it to. They came right up to smell it to see if it was to their liking. And it's super soft so they relaxed on it. I just hope they don't scratch it up since lately all 3 cats have been using the rugs as their own personal scratching pads.

Cooking up a storm

Since I "work from home" these days, I have had lots of time to cook and try out new recipes. The other day I learned to make pizza dough. I don't know why I always thought it was difficult to do, but it's actually quite easy! And the pizza came out great! Notice on the bottom right corner, I had to try some of the crust. Haha, it's my favorite part of a pizza. You think anyone will notice a piece missing?

I also made my mom's recipe for fun goh or "chinese dumplings". These little goodies are pretty labor intensive but so worth it when they are done. It has a pork, cabbage and carrot filling and boy are they just delicious.

This is what it looks like before they are steamed.

sleepy head

I love this photo. Yaffa is napping and her head is peaking out behind Sebastian. She is so sweet when she is sleeping.

Taking the Ferry and Taking in the View!

One way to get from Staten Island to Manhattan and vice versa is to take the free ferry. It's a nice ride with lots to see.

The boat is quite large, it can fit lots and lots of people. On this particular day, it was not too cold so I decided to sit on the top deck in the open air. It was chilly once the boat started moving.

I was relieved to see so many life jackets above my head!

I still feel sad when I look over to Downtown Manhattan and see the Twin Towers missing. Will never forget that day.

However, lower Manhattan is a beautiful view! Especially from a boat!

The best view of all is this pretty lady! One of these days I have to actually go and visit her.

Yup, you can't beat "free" boat ride and an awesome view!

Catching some zzzs

Yaffa and Sebastian love to sleep on the couch. Especially on the soft blanket. Even if it's on the top of the couch. As long as its on the blanket.

Let Me In

Sebastian loves to hang out on the porch. He sits out there for hours enjoying the warm sun rays. Sometimes I forget he's out there and close the porch door. He gets mad when he's ready to come back in. Here he is giving me laser eyes by the window.

My New Friend

I was outside working on the garden today and had a visitor. I don't know if this is someone's outdoor cat in the neighborhood or a stray cat.

I don't think the kitty is a stray because she was really friendly. She came right up to me and let me pet her.

In case she was a stray, I decided to try to give the kitty some cat food. She sniffed it, but she didn't eat any. She wasn't interested. I did see her try to chase down some birds though.

She sat on the grass for awhile and hung around while I gardened. She was very relaxed.

After a little while, she walked away into the neighbors yard. I hope she comes back for a visit. I am hoping she is someone's cat, I would hate to think she's a stray...

Yummy tunafish!

Whenever a can opens in this house, Yaffa and Sebastian run to the kitchen. On this particular day, they were in for a treat. Tunafish juice. Yum, they slurped it up!

Done, Done, and Done

After a week of hard work, we are finally finished with putting up the picket fencing for the garden. So much work, but sooo worth it. We are so happy with the results, and can't wait to start tilling the soil so we can plant the seedlings. Here is a photo of installing the gate.
Testing out that the gate works.

Finished product!

Here is a photo of our cucumber and zucchini plants.

And this is broccoli growing! By next week, we should be able to plant everything. Hooray!

Fence Paneling Installed

We've been working really hard out in the garden. The other day we put up some of the picket fence paneling. It's a lot of work, and takes a long time, but it's so worth it! More photos to come!

Sun Porch

We've been getting lovely weather lately. The best place to get sun rays in our house is on the enclosed porch. Sebastian loves to sit in the porch and soak up the sun. Doesn't he look lovely?
