Wow, Spring (or Summer?) is really here!! All the flowers and trees are all fully bloomed, the bees and wasps are out already and the allergens are in full force! I think I have finally finished with the spring cleaning attack and I hope it lies dormant for a good long while...LOL! Tired? You bet I am, but its a feeling good about the accomplishments tired!
Mommy cat moved her babies about 2 weeks ago after a strong storm and then lots of NOISE with lawn mowers and weed eaters and I couldn't find them. She kept coming around for food and attention, but no signs of the babies. I even had a couple of visits from a fox to clean her food bowls out for her...LOL! That was scary, but it never tried to bother her and she just sat a watched it eat. But on the morning of the 5th, she brought one of the babies out to eat with her. Cute little *%$# too! But I just watched them and when finished the baby ran back under my storage barn. Next morning, 2 of them came out to eat under Mommy's watchful eye. Then on the morning of the 7th, I took these photos of 3 of her babies. Not sure if the other 2 are still around or what, but for last 2 days have only seen the 3 little playful kittens. So, here is a couple of photos of Mommy and the babies eating at my back door! I used an older kit of Kyra's (With A Russian Dutch Heart) called A Day In The Life of Tom Kitten. The clusters by Arlene just seemed perfect since the one in the lower right corner, looks like one of these kittens! Aren't they just the cutest little things?
I had lunch with my friend Kathy T on Tuesday! She and I have been having our "birthday" luncheons for several years, but missed last year for some reason (I think she and hubby were still traveling and out of state). Her birthday is March 25th, mine is May 20th and we try to meet sometime in between and catch up! We finally found the time and had a terrific 2 hours of catching up! Sure was fun! Yesterday morning I took Nina to the airport for her annual trek to West Virginia to visit with her sisters and families. I stopped at WalMart for Cat food and who did I run into, Kathy T. We had a good laugh, all this time of not seeing each other and then 2 days in a row....!
My sister, Kathy, seems to be doing a little better each day! She is still experiencing problems with her blood pressure, but the heart seems to be doing okay for the time being. She really wants to go home and the doctors are all trying to come to some agreement as to when that will be safe for her and the healing wound from the infection. She is hoping to be able to spend Mother's Day at home....we will just have to see! In the meantime, I did another page for her of her grand babies that have been visiting her quite often at the rehab center. This page is using a page border that I created and placed on Miriam's Scraps as a freebie back a few days ago. If you haven't visited Miriam's blog lately, you are missing some really beautiful work from her Mini kit 13. There is a link on the right of this blog, visit both of these incredible ladies that offer lots of freebies for scrap booking. You will not be disappointed! The wordart is one offered by Donna that you can find a link to as well.
