Cute Kitty

My new bloggy pal, Jane, from Flora Doora has introduced me to a new linky party:  Cute Kitty Thursday hosted by LS Art - DesignI LIKE IT!  AND.....I just happen to have one of those....a cute kitty.  Do you have a cute kitty too??

Here is my Gracie...  Her full name is Gracie Allen Bass.  A play on the late star Gracie Allen (who my dad used to say I reminded him a playful manner) and my husband's middle name Allen, and how when he was young and in trouble his mom called out, "Michael Allen Bass!!!"  It just seemed to work for my Gracie kitty too.

She loves to sit on top of the vine covered chicken coop.  Here the door was open and she ventured out to have a look-see.


And while on the subject of Gracie....or just plain Grace....I read these words last night.  Wow...

"Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void."  ~Simone Weil

I had to read it several times to really grasp the meaning.  Powerful...  I would love to hear your thoughts on this quote.


  1. Gracie is beautiful!
    Our dog is named Gracie : )
    Here "in trouble" name
    is Gracie-Marie Margaret
    Delilah!! Don't ask me
    why....just evolved : )
    I do love that quote.
    It is particularly speaking
    to me today as I have NO
    voids at the moment, which
    indicates that I'm out of
    balance. Thanks for the
    reminder, Carol!

    PS: I own a Flora-Dora, too!

  2. What a small world you are from Niagara Falls NY I have family there as well!
    Your cat is beautiful...I'm a big cat lover!


Your comments mean so much.
Many thanks for taking the time to drop me a note.
Warmest regards ~ Carol
