Herbs hanging to dry, and a little black kitten playing

We've had a couple of frosty nights, so I've gathered herbs from the garden to dry. It's too cold to hang them on my special drying rack in the garage, so I've hung these from the light in the dining room. It'll be warmer there and they'll dry more quickly. I've got a couple of varieties of tulsi, some parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and sweet marjoram. Yesterday when they were freshly cut, the room smelled so good!:
And here is a little black kitten. He's always on the move:
He belongs to my daughter, but he comes over for visits sometimes: 
I wish more people would spay and neuter their pets, then my daughter wouldn't have to pick up so many abandoned kittens : )
