The Great Essentials of Happiness Are...

kitten and back yard
Something to do, something to love and something to hope for. By Allan K. Chalmers.

Oh wait...and something to pet!
autumn leaf
autumn colors and autumn flowers
{In the meantime...
I'm trying to savour the last of autumn colours!}
red flowers in autumn
ossobuco milanese dish
{I'm having Ossobuco for dinner tomorrow. Ossobuco is a Milanese specialty of cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. Delicious.}

This pretty much sumps up my weekend.

What are your plans for this weekend? Hope you have a great one! Don't forget to be awesome. xx

Plenty of light and sunshine to warm the soul as we head toward the shortest day of the year.

Have a warm and cosy weekend Betty. Give yourself a hug if you get lonely and know you're good company.

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful reminders of the lovely, fun, delicious things that brighten up our days!! Hope you have a beautiful weekend, Betty!

Kitties, or as I call them, catties, bring so much joy to life. xo

Lynn said...

Your photos are so beautiful (as always.) Hope you have a lovely, relaxing weekend. I have nothing planned, aside from brunch tomorrow, and am quite looking forward to that!

TexWisGirl said...

love the light and color and warmth in these! enjoy, sweet betty!

Barb said...

The colors and light make me smile - as does that cute kitty. I have a long, narrow pillow for drafts at my door that looks a little like your pillow.

Kelly said...

Beautiful photos, Betty, but I'm totally captivated by that sweet kitty in the first!!

Betsy Adams said...

Oh course, we all need something to PET… Right now, I pet my hubby and he pets me!!!!!! ha

Love your Autumn photos. Seems as if Autumn has come and gone so quickly this year.

Have a good weekend. Hope you are feeling better.
Hugs,
Betsy

Gail Dixon said...

Sweet little kitty. I agree, happiness is something to pet. :) What are those red berries? I just spotted some in our neighborhood. Hope you have a great weekend!

It's me said...

Tamara Camera said...

Gorgeous, Betty. And I really won't forget to be awesome! I might have to borrow that quote from you because it made my day.

Tracy Terry said...

I'd definitely agree with something to pet.

Lovely images as always, your Friday post always gets my weekend off to a good start.

Trac~ said...

You always seem to capture the essence in each of your photos. They are always so beautiful my friend! We are finishing up our Christmas decorating because we won't be home for Thanksgiving to do it then. Other than that, it's a pretty low key weekend. Have a wonderful one doll! Big hugs my BBFF! xoxoxo

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Awww, I love the kitty! I love all my kitties and they are good company when I'm all alone at home while hubby is working. I enjoyed all your photos, I never thought to put lemons in a jar. Great idea!

What a gorgeous post Betty, full of the best of autumn. All I'm doing this weekend is studying - not much fun but off to Liverpool next week.

Craver Vii said...

Looks delicious! The Ossobuko, not the kitten. ;-)

I like the sun-drenched leaf, too!

Margaret Adamson said...

What a darling little cat! Yes, we all need something to pet. Loving all your pics, but that Ossobuko sure looks better than what I have planned for dinner.

Giga said...

To prawda, że to ostatnie kolory jesieni, niestety. Kotek jednak wszystko wynagrodził. Ja jutro mam chrzciny w rodzinie. Pozdrawiam.
It is true that the last colors of autumn, unfortunately. Spite, however, all reward. Tomorrow I will have a family christening. Yours.

I love the flowers petals in the natural state.

Theresa said...

I am glad you still have autumn colors to admire. All of our leaves have fallen and it just looks so barren outside now. Now we have the task of raking all weekend. Joy joy! Lol

Dirk Rosin said...

George said...

You've certainly have captured the beauty of autumn in your wonderful photos. We're going to spend much of the weekend trying to clean up some of the leaves autumn has dumped in our yard.

Hilary said...

I want to scoop that kitty up and put her in my pocket. What a cutie. I love the lemons and garlic in the mason jars. Everything you do is just so creative.

This weekend, we're watching the lake melt from its early freeze so that we can get the boat out of the water. ;)

DIMI said...

All of those things would do it for me. The cat to pet has to be on the list. (he says while looking at the three cats sitting within 5 feet of him)
