Monday Morning and Mother's Day

Good morning, all.  It's a quiet Monday morning in the crazy cat lady house.  I have all the windows open because spring has finally decided to settle in.  Just fed the "kids" and they are either in open windows or settling in for naps.  Or both!  Must be nice to be a cat.

These are not my babies, but they are just too cute!  Happy Mother's Day!
My Mother's Day was really nice.  It actually started Friday.  We went to buy my mother-in-law a new TV, because hers was quitting.  While we were there, my husband surprised me and bought me a something I've been drooling over for a couple of years.  A Keurig coffee machine!  I just tried it out this morning and I love it!  Thank you, honey!  Then on Saturday, my husband took me and my daughter to see Iron Man 3 (which is excellent!).   Sunday was the best.  I got the whole day off to do whatever I wanted.  My daughter presented me with a great homemade card and a little money to spend at the craft store.  My husband did almost all the laundry (which was way behind) and folded it AND put it away.  Wow!  We opted not to go out for lunch because of the suspected crowds.  So I picked what I wanted and brought it home.  Watched a few shows we had recorded.  Then I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and go outside.  Took a blanket, a book and my pasty white self out in the sunshine.  We have a huge back yard and it feels like being in a park if you go down far enough.  Dozed in the sun for awhile and read my book.  It was so peaceful and wonderful.  When I came back inside, my husband had made dinner.  Best Mother's Day yet!  Thank you to my husband and daughter for my great day!

The Chaos Before A Show

Just set up for my first craft show of the year.  Asbury United Methodist Church here in Springfield, MO is having their annual Spring Craft Bazaar tomorrow.  Getting ready for a show is more work than actually working the show!  I'm tired tonight and ready for bed.  Have to open around 8:30am.  Must have large cup of coffee in hand!  But I'm really proud of my products and hope I do well this weekend.

We are still feeling the loss of our one-eyed Tortie Annie, who we lost very recently.  She was a part of the family for so long we really miss her.  But we have other geriatric cats to concentrate on, who need all the love and attention we can provide.  Our oldest, Buster is close to 20 years old, stone deaf and howls a lot, much to the annoyance of our other cats.  He is now the senior cat that we have had the longest.  He was a stray, starving kitten with all his whiskers cut off when we first saw him sitting under a tree across the street from our house.  He saw my husband, charged across the street and climbed right up my husband's pant leg.  He adopted us!
