Day 74 - Scrappy Sunday

What do you get when you clean out your scrap fabric drawer and run the sewing machine all day? 12 different colors of scrappy blocks waiting for a project. A non-quilt project.
Next up comes the white fabric strips. Or maybe muslin strips. It's still a work in progress so I haven't quite decided yet.

Day 73 - The Early Bird

Not only does the early bird get the worm, it gets kitties fed and a 6 AM sunrise picture taken through the kitchen window.

Day 72 - Foster Kitten Friday

Welcome to another week of Foster Friday. This day is always the best of the week because I get to show off my little foster babies. (The kitten kind, of course.) 

Schools may be closed all around the world, but Kitty School is open at my house. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme have been learning lots of great lessons as they move from three week old kitties to four week old kitties.
Please sit down, children.
Boys and girls, what did you learn in school today this week?

*Bottles are good. You get yummy food in your tummy and lots of one-on-one time with Foster Mama. She gives you plenty of loving and even helps clean your face. 
Getting tired.
*Recess is fun! Foster Mama lets us have supervised play on her couch.
*Couches are a great place to climb.
*Eating off a saucer is...well...interesting. We like stepping in it and licking it off our paws the best.
*We like eating food from a spoon, too. Yeah, it's messy but oh-so-good.
*We're getting to be big kids because Foster Mama is teaching us to eat out of a bowl.
*We found out bowls are messy, too.
*But we are learning to clean ourselves! Did you know only a tongue and paw are needed?
*Toys are fun. We'll get more toy lessons next week.
*Scratching posts are also fun. I still need lessons on this one, too.
*We learned the louder we talk, the faster Foster Mama listens.
*Naps are great when you're snuggled with ones you love.
Yep, a great week for us all. See you back next week for another Foster Friday!

Want to help contribute to the work I do with foster kittens? I have an Amazon wish list right here. These are the things I use again and again, year after year. With daily laundry and frequent cleaning, items have to be replaced often. I’d love anything you’d be willing to send my way!

If you need even more cuteness, along with reasons why you should be a foster parent, check out the video I made a couple years back.

Day 71 - Find the Difference

I grew up with Highlights magazine for kids. There were several regular features each month, with one of them being Find the Difference.  It had two pictures and you had to find what was different between the two. Today’s Deb's Pic a Day picture is my own Find the Difference. It came about because of the Two is Too Many day we had a couple weeks back.

Can you see it? (You can ignore the dirty stove and crooked towel.) It was hard work getting it installed all by myself (go me!) but I think it’ll be worth it. I know it’ll be so, so, so much quieter than the last one we had. 

Things will be even more improved with another Find the Difference day coming up soon so stay tuned...

Day 70 - More Than Sunshine on my Shoulder

As I was enjoying the warm sunshine in my backyard lounger while the kitties were sleeping, I had a visitor. With my swimsuit straps down, Little Miss (or Mr.?) Ladybug paid me a visit. Landed on my shoulder and set for a spell.
No tan lines on either one of us.
