Busy couple of days. Tuesday night I went over to Dagan and Leah's. What a night for etsy to be down! Couldn't load a page, let alone photos. So Leah and I headed up to the office and took more pictures of product. Some of the jewelry this time. We'll try for next week again on posting.
The sad news is that Sammy ended up at the vet hospital! He has that feline urinary crystallizing thing, poor baby boy! So he's on a special diet and medication. Doing well, tho.
When I got home and emptied out my McLap bag...
...you-know-who leapt at that opportunity. She was trying like heck to get my skinny Green Tea with Citrus To Go packets out of that front zippered pouch--hehe! It's a tough life, Karma! ;)
The last several days I have been slowly removing the backs off those bookmarks. I finally finished yesterday--tada! Here's a picture of the newest batch (in front) that never had backing and the repaired batch (in back).
One step forward, two steps back, eh? LOL! Next thing is to stamp the backs. :)
While I was gone Tuesday night, UPS tried to deliver the bookcase. They marked that they would try again on Wednesday. Leah and I had planned a quick shopping trip on Wednesday night after she got off work. Their system was down for five hours and they were behind, so she had to work overtime. But that turned out to be okay because they didn't come with the bookcase until 6:20pm anyways. Very happy, pleasant delivery guy, BTW. :)
Leah picked me up and we went over to K&Krafts in Moorhead, Minnesota across the river. Picked up the two bottles of diamond Stickles that we special ordered. Then we headed over to PetSmart. I got a little siphon for the ten gallon and some fish food. (Fishies got to eat, too.) Leah picked up some Greenies and a crinkle bag for Sammy who likes to crawl inside things. (Hope he loves it!) We weren't gone very long.
Then we came back here and Leah came up to make a wedding card.
I don't remember if I ever told you, but Karma LOVES all Leah's shoes. They are like catnip to her!
She rubs her head on them...
...sticks her face in them...
...paws inside of them and generally rubs & rolls all over them and pushed them around on the floor. So funny!
Neither Dagan's nor my shoes interest her--other than the shoelaces, of course. Anyone's shoelaces are in danger in this house. Miss Karma has been known to chew thru an unguarded shoelace in a matter of seconds. We have to tuck them into the shoes and put them up higher on the shoe rack by the door. Dagan has forgotten (or believed too strongly in his own good fortune) and gone home with a loose shoe more than once.
Anyways, Leah put together this pretty wedding card.
Inside the "two hearts beat as one" is actually a sticker.
What cracked us up, tho, was errant cat hair! I keep the cardboard box we use for misting in my bedroom. Leah went to spray the flower parts (copper mist) and discovered cat hair stuck to the them! So she had to sit with a tweezers and pluck all the Karma hairs off before she could construct the flower for the front. So now, I have wiped the box all out the best I could and have draped an old t-shirt over it to keep the restless floating vagabond errant Karma hairs out of our misting box! ROFL!
Let's see...the new coffee is a bit strong for me, but tastes really good with a titch of cream in it. And it was down into the 30s last night! I am going to have to do something with the giant philodendron on the porch! Leah and I bought a pot and chains. It has to be repotted before I can water it inside the house or it would leak everywhere. And I have no place to hang it in the bathtub to water it, either. Too big and heavy to hang on the shower head. Ooops! Just plain forgot all about that little project. [Email me, Leah! :)]
I am pretty well shot today from being out and about for two days in a row. I know--doesn't take much--LOL! Might be able to do some stamping on the bookmarks, tho? I'll see how my back holds up. :) Been a beautiful sunny morning, even if it is chilly. Hope you are having a super-duper great day!
