Tuxedo Cat Vladimir Loves Bubbles

Okay.  I know cats don’t belong on kitchen counters.  It is not a kitty place.  However, anyone who has cats and knows cats, well, um, cats go where they want to.  It is why we regularly brush our kitties and why we keep Clorox Clean-Up in the kitchen to keep counters disinfected.  Of course, our kitties are routinely shooed away from the counters; however, when the bubbles come out of the Dawn dishwashing container, it’s game on.

How can you not love a big, curious, sweet, bubble-loving tuxedo cat named Vladimir?

Make more bubbles!
Where are the bubbles?

Enjoy this day

Rug Made From Scraps

This is nothing fancy.  In fact, it is made simply from sewing thick fabric scraps together, with random piecing and random stitches.  The goal was for the rug to be as close to square as possible.  It has been a great bedside rug in the apartment.  It adds color and it will go into the washing machine.  The edge was turned under once or twice and hemmed.  I am pretty haphazard.  Enjoy this day!

Spread something out. No matter what. Cats will get in the middle of it. Lucy.

The Many Faces of Vlad and Lucy

Even as I write, there is serious CAT CLOWN HOUR going on in the apartment.  Vlad and Lucy are galloping like lions on the plains, pawing at each other and scratching the carpet and the furniture.  Yes.  Owning cats is not for the faint of heart!

A very serious Lucy! Vlad knows to watch out!
Vlad wants his Meowfia friends and foes to know that he helps with laundry. So there!
Twins. They love to watch the comings and goings. They listen to birds and peeps.
Vlad can be fierce, but he always comes around for his morning hugs.
Um, not to be outdone, Lucy PRETENDS to help with laundry as well. I turned my back for a second, and she was sitting in the warm clothes. I promptly removed her. She’s safe!

In other news, I love to goof off with a canvas and acrylic paints. I love the way this looks after taking a picture and adding a fun filter.

Circus lady: the bird whisperer.

And who does not need to make a habit of smiling and being happy? I originally thought to put this gorilla(?) in the shop, but then I decided that he needed to ride around with me. He always makes me smile. Especially when I stop at a light and he is still swinging. Any ideas what his name should be?

Are you watching the road???

I am so glad it is Friday! There is a cold wind blowing here today, but hopefully it will calm down and warm up over the weekend. Dinner out this evening. Hanging out in the shop tomorrow. Then Sunday, the day of rest and worship. I am thankful for every day.

Enjoy this day!
