Ladies’ Night

I met a group of girls tonight at a place called Color Me Mine.  You basically choose a ceramic piece to paint.  A week later, you get to pick up your glazed and fired work of art.  I looked at mugs and plates, but decided on a kitty dish.  I figured that no matter how bad it turned out, the cats would still eat out of it.  LOL. 


My chosen ceramic dish.

Working intently.


My kitty dish.  We’ll see how the final product turns out.


As amazing as it was to have a night out. . .it was even more amazing to come home to a little girl who was very excited to see mommy.  I got home just in time to sing her “The Ants Go Marching” as I do every night.  I was so glad not to miss out on her goodnight hugs.

I fully intended on writing a post tonight, but I just have random thoughts in my head which have no clear order or direction.  For instance. . .

Random Thought #1:  Olivia learned last week how to chew gum.  The few times she has tried, she placed the gum in her mouth, chewed a couple of times and then promptly swallowed.  Last week, she wanted a Chiclet and to my surprise. . . 10 minutes later she was still chewing it.  Now, she’s a pro. LOL.  She has also decided that she loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches which I am thrilled about.  She’s never been a sandwich eater and I’ve been dying to have something simple to make for lunch. 

Random Thought #2:  My eye really itches.  I must remember to pick up some eye drops tomorrow.

Random Thought #3:  We now have a new roof and new guttering.  Now, all we need is to fix our broken windows (from the hail storm) and repaint our house.

Random Thought #4:  Our cat, Tobey, is doing awesome.  His Adequan injections are really helping.  Adequan is normally used for arthritis in horses and dogs.  And, he’s now using his tail which means amputation is no longer even being considered.  I love our vet and love love love my cats. 

Random Thought #5:  I’ve got to go search the house for some eye drops.  This is driving me crazy. . .

Oh, and I had to share this picture of Olivia’s “babies.”  If only they made clothes that actually fit them. LOL.

Yesterday, we celebrated my dad’s birthday (it’s tomorrow) and Olivia picked out his birthday card.  It was a kitty card, of course, that meowed and laughed.  She was so excited to give it to him. 


Here is Grandpa Sailing with his granddaughters.

Let’s see. . . what else have we been doing. . .trying to stay cool and do things indoors.  It was 111 degrees today, which is the hottest it’s been here since 1980.  Izzy came over the other day and we had fun playing in our big tent under the dining room table.  We even watched some Max and Ruby in there.  Olivia loves it when Izzy comes over!



Tobey enjoyed the tent too.  He is doing very well by the way and seems to have regained use of his tail.  We go back to the vet tomorrow for another injection and then I start doing them at home.  Oh, and we got our new roof yesterday!  Very exciting!
