First Day Of Spring
First, Happy Spring! Isn't the mouse cute? Her name is Vera. She is the creation of artist Marjolein Bastin. I had a little collection of her notecards at one time, but I used most of them. I have been looking for more, but it looks like the internet is the only source right now.
They are forecasting very un springlike weather for tomorrow. I think if Michigan wasn't shaped like a mitten then maybe winter would leave us alone. Are there any states shaped like palm trees? :)
Well, I tried to get a picture of Cody and his healing boo boo, but he didn't want to pose for long. It is on the right between his ear and his eye. Just a little scab. Maybe it's easier to see when bigafied. He looks even better today. I had to break up another skirmish between him and Cricket this morning. She was about to smack him in the face again! I noticed this burst of aggression came after my daughter tossed Cricket out of her room. Cats are like toddlers really. They're pretty smart and calculating in their thought processes and will act out when upset. I will have to lay down with her this afternoon to let her know she's still loved. I didn't sleep well last night anyway. ;)
I hope this next cold snap passes quickly. Until then I will sip my hot tea, catch up on housework (again!) and figure out what to make for Easter dinner. I hope it's sunny where you are and if you're in Michigan, well, don't put your winter coat away yet. grrr...
