Jake at 10 months of age
"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself,
than be crowded on a velvet cushion."
Henry David Thoreau
I picked up a couple of velvet
in case you change your mind.
A few small projects accomplished...
I made a wreath to welcome Autumn
when it truly arrives...
...and whipped up a little something
for the well dressed witch.
Repainted this chest with Shabby Paints
and finally figured out
how to get it white!
This little piece was a robin's egg blue
(sorry, I forgot to get a 'before' picture).
You can still see some of that color peeking through.
I tried to come up with something fun and masculine, so decided on this scheme.
This is intended for the Captain's library, and he likes it,
so that is the important outcome.
(The bottom drawer is actually dark green and shows up true but in photo blends in with the black body.)
Picked up this pretty fern at Home Depot...
and that concludes an uneventful week.
I am actually so thankful for this uneventful week around here
as a neighboring county has another raging fire going on
and homes and property are being lost.
We have lots of smoke but nothing worse.
I'll take uneventful over that any day.
one of the little cats that adopted us,
and the one that had many!! male suitors?...
...well, no surprise, she ended up pregnant.
Since she is technically a stray, the animal shelter put her into foster care
until the kittens were born
and then had her spayed..
and would have put the babies up for adoption except...
all three of them were stillborn.
The experts seem to think she might not have even been 6 months old herself
and just too young
for it to go well.
We brought her back home and so far she seems pretty contented here...
I hope she stays. She is already earning her keep here.
She caught a mole yesterday
that has been outsmarting the Captain for quite some time.
She certainly has not had
an uneventful time.
