Since it has been cooler Karma's been sleeping in her nice warm cat bed again.
Leah was over on Wednesday night to make a couple of guy graduation cards.
She used this technique to make the cardstock look like wood. The "Congrats" oval sits right inside the oval window hole...
...so this is what you see when you open the card.
I thought this was a clever idea! The "Congrats" is attached with brads that look like screw heads.
She made two of them.
Leah's family has always gotten together over Memorial weekend. They left yesterday to go visit with her mom first. :)
Early this morning there was this dark wall of clouds along the horizon.
The sliver of a moon was still out as the sun was rising.
Later in the daylight you can really see that is becoming a road over there. Won't be too long now, I suppose.
Anyways, I am taking care of Sammy and Annie for Dagan and Leah while they are gone on their long weekend. Since my days and nights are flipped (am slowly working my way around the clock) I left early this morning for West Fargo.
Iggy had asked me what was on the other side of my apartment building...pretty dull stuff. Here's the street that runs in front of the complex.
Endless new housing developments across the street.
Oddly, there's this public playground--right next to this busy four lane road.
Here's looking a little bit the other way down the street. Somebody came up behind me, so I had to go.
My view is more interesting, I think--even if there is some construction and I will probably end up overlooking a lot of small businesses. It's also quieter in the long run on this side because I don't get the louder constant traffic noise. Pretty barren around here because I think this all used to be farmer's fields at one time. But I do get to see a lot of sky! ;)
I forgot to get pictures of Sammy and Annie. I'll try to remember next time. They're much friendlier now than when Dagan and Leah first adopted them.
I started watching Justified and I love it! Will definitely follow this series. Of course, I loved Timothy Olyphant in Deadwood, too. And he was in the movie I Am Number Four that I just told you about. This morning I began watching the series The Darling Buds of May with a very young Catherine Zeta-Jones that Serena mentioned on her blog. Cute!
I hope everyone (in US) has a nice long weekend with decent weather. :):)
