did ya miss me?

Im back. I've been off the computer all weekend! A huge piece of farm equipment came down the road and pulled the cable wire down! At least it didnt bring down the electric or phone wires with it!

For all of you that left me comments on my last post, thank you SOOOO MUCH! It really means a lot to me. I miss marmalade terribly and losing him made me miss Jasper all the more too. Friday night and saturday morning were pretty rough, but I called the lady who had my kittens on sat, and we went and picked them up .. so its been quite literally a whirlwind of activity here since then. Ok.. Ive not had kittens for 15 years! wow! they are crazy little fur balls! Its hard to get some good pictures of them, because they really dont hold still much. They are sweet though and they have made it a little easier to deal with losing marmalade. The boy, Figgy, (thinking of changing his name to frankie.. my son hates his name and refuses to call him by his name... ) is a sweet heart. He loves to be petted, and purrs up a storm, but then likes to get down and go play or sleep under the couch. But he likes to check in often. Frannie, is adorable and sweet, but really would rather not be handled! She looks at me and I swear she is saying.. "oh please do not look at me or pick me up!!" shes coming around though and has made quite a bit of progress in the past 4 days. Shes timid but I think she'll be fine. They are quite a pair and both of them are cute as heck! I keep saying "oh my gosh, they're so freaken cute!" I think I might be annoying my husband!

So what else is new? not much really, I spent a fortune on flowers and worked outside sunday and monday planting them and pulling weeds. I made a raggedy ann doll for Aunt PittyPats raggedy ann swap, but cant show pics til after she is recieved. She did turn out cute though. Other then that, I've not been very creative the last few days. I'm trying to decide what kind of little momento I can make in memory of marmalade. I'll probably make a little needle felted orange tiger kitty sometime soon.

Ive made 5 charm braclets to put in my etsy.. if I ever get it started! I have a couple other things for it too and I want to make a couple miniature bears also. If I ever get it up and running, I'll let you know!

No one's home tonight, both my husband and Robert are out working on their trucks, so I'm not cooking. Not sure what I'll have for dinner. theres left over pizza, or peanut butter toast and tea. Or popcorn!! or maybe eggs and toast, I'm getting hungry now.. and should be as its 8:10.

Well, I am way behind on your blogs now, thanks to one of my friendly neighborhood farmers! but I'm going to find some thing to eat and then start blog hopping!
have a good night and see you at your blogS soon!!

They will keep you so occupied! Larry and Lester are 4 and still act like crazy kittens. And I just love your charm bracelets- so sweet. I just have one on etsy right now, b if you want to swap anytime, let me know. xo

Good Lord...you have as much whirling around you as I do right now. I knew about Jasper ..but not Marmalade. I am so sorry. How ironic that you just adopted 2 new kitties though. they are there to soothe your heart!
