Apple Cider Mischief

Posted by Sharkey

We, Frenchies, love spending time with our Uncle Carlos so, of course, we jumped at the chance to help him make apple cider!  I was a bit disappointed that Franny was not her usual energetic self.  But our brother, G.K., sure knows how to light a fire under her!

We, Frenchies, were looking at Martha’s calendar and we noticed that there’s a photo shoot happening at the farm this week with Martha.  It said that it’s happening in the head house of the greenhouse and the housekeepers were instructed to make sure it was spic and span.  It’s hard to keep the head house …

Alas!  Summer is officially over as the first day of autumn was on Friday.  Yesterday you got to see some of our new fall wardrobe, which we will be happy to wear when the temperatures start dropping.  Well, we’re not quite ready to let go of summer and all of its beauty, so we decided …

You may remember that last Friday, we mentioned that Martha’s Pet’s line at PetSmart has introduced its first products for cats and we felt compelled to get something for our cat friends.  Vivaldi was so appreciative that he got on Martha’s computer and did a little online ordering for us!
