NEW CAT

GARFIELD found the grandkids bed to snooze on..
oh my has he found a new home here(:


A new cat has been coming by for a short visit ''for months'' now..

my 15 year old gray fat cat died a few weeks ago

and we gave him a proper burial...

now this new one we call Garfield (looks quite a bit like the cartoon cat)

is hanging around more and more

even scratching at the back door at midnight last night..

it is getting down in the 40ties now...

hubby doesn't want another cat

I have a dilemma on my hands now..

called a neighbor to see it it was theirs..

no it wasn't

..

soooooooooooooooooo ..

not sure what will happen

hubby may soften he likes cats..

but I think it has a home as it just nibbles on the cat food

-not acting like it is super hungry-

and goes back out after getting a few nice pettings(:)

HELP~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day..

hugs,Patty

NEW PUMPKIN






I made another papermache' guy..
turned up nose~
it was a very wet papermache'
no filler inside all paper pulp--
it took about a week to dry before I could paint it..
Yesterday we drove way up into the mountains
.....on scary one lane roads(:O) ugh..
with a drop off as high as the Empire State building
(it looked like it anyway (:)
it was 2400 ft. high)
and no guard rails~~
but it smelled so good(pine trees) and
I got a fun nature walk in ~
Hope you are all having a great fun day (:)
hugs,
Patty

PUMPKIN PEDICURE





I had one today
the chair had a nice back massage
it was wonderful..
they
even dipped my feet
into warm wax(:)
I really like it
but afterwards I thought of
another idea is black nails with an orange pumpkin on just the BIG toes(:)
or orange nail polish with a black spider on the big toenails
would have been fun too ~!!



Hope you are having a pampered day too..



hugs,Patty

BLOOMERS












I Love BLOOMERS


I found these on ETSY today..$36 plus .. sh.

Last year I made a pair out of muslin
mine are pretty similar..
I just need to get brave enough to wear them..
at my age I'm afraid
I'd look like a granny (:)


We wore them when I was about 1o-12 years old...



ETSY~

Crow about FALL

Fall is upon us again..

Every season brings change ..

I like that..

sometimes a slight adjustment

has to be made to get used to it ..

but we always adjust (:)

~Remembering~

September 11th is a sad day

I have been watching it on the news..

This beautiful sunny day makes me thankful that I am alive..

I hope you all have a wonderful day ~

Patty
