My balcony garden has been coming along nicely. Lots of tomatoes and peppers on the big plants and my herbs have been growing like weeds. I decided to use some of my giant amount of basil to make pesto. It was my first time ever trying to make it myself. I came out pretty well though I think I used too much cheese. Is there such a thing as too much cheese?

Early one morning I awoke to being stabbed in the back over and over by a cats paw. It was way too early for treats. I wasn’t going to get up just to provide some whim of Jobu’s. He could suck it up and deal. I refused to roll over and pretended to be asleep. He stopped poking me and let out a big sigh. I had won. Jobu could wander away and not bother me anymore. He pressed against my back and laid down. He just wanted snuggles. I rolled over and petted him. His purrs filled the room as I fell back asleep.
