A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Kitty-Kat in a Box

Oh, goodness. How my little (old) kitty loves to climb in boxes! Check out this photo of Katydid in a box that was made for two little Christmas trees made in China. What was made in China--trees or Katy? Anyway, she was peeking at my husband over the top of the box with one eye half closed, giving him a chuckle.

Katy tries out every box and bag that comes into the house. There's another cat in our house by the name of Mickey Tettleton, but he gives in to Katy, and she mothers him. Mickey is quite aloof and easy-going, while Katy "rules the roost," as do women in most homes. Do you think Katy's success at laying claim to the box had anything to do with the fact that she, like all women, can entertain several thoughts, simultaneously, whereas guys can handle only what's in front of them at any given time? Sh-h-h-h.

It's 2 am. Pleasant dreams of kitties in boxes...sleeping, sleeping, s-l-e-e-e-ping... Nighty, night. Meow!

That's sweet! Nothing like a furry little independent bundle of cat to make you smile!! Our Jack Russel..Barkley, love bags too! And she always seems to know when there is something special in the bag for her:) She can sniff out her present under the tree among all the others:)

You two girls have a grasp of what pet love is all about! One of my friends told me Katy is homely she's cute, and I said, "She's not homely", in a whiny voice. We think she's adorable, aside from her pestering us all the time. D, about the present under the tree: Don't ya' love it!
