Kitties and Crafts
Autumn is here for sure. The days are shorter and it's been cloudy and rainy and cold. Our old house doesn't have overhead lighting in the living room and it stays rather dim on cloudy days. We use lamps and lights like the ones on the fireplace and at night candles too. It's kind of pretty and the low lighting hides lots of dust and cat hair. :)
We have had some minor internet outages, but it's better than it was. The kitties have been keeping me company while I craft and try to keep up on the chores. I made a little owl card, inspired by the Chinese fortune that reads; "Romance is Blossoming." It's a bit blurry, but that's what it says.
The Faerie paper doll is made from a template that I found online. The Enchanted Gallery, I think. She is an Autumnal Faerie. I used way to much glitter. Toeshee even had some on his fur! I told him he was sprinkled with Faerie Dust.
Miss Billie has taken to sleeping under the old broken down rocking chair in front of the heat register. The seat needs re-caning, so I just put a pillow on it and some of my little stuffed kitties on that.
Cricket is a bit miffed about Billie's napping spot because she likes to hide under there to play with her toys and lie in wait for Toeshee.
Never a dull moment with these kitties. Cody is mad at me because I have not taken him outside with me since Sunday. It's going to be a long winter with "Grandpa Floofy CrankyPants". He hates being cooped up in the house. He doesn't seem to understand that I do not enjoy cold wet weather and 40 mile an hour wind gusts.
Well, that's about it. We are holding out hope for some decent sunny days yet and just trying to stay cozy. I hope you all have some nice days on your way too.
