Yesterday the funniest thing happened. Dad came home for lunch (that isn't the funny part, he does that all the time), it was pouring down rain and the Beast was trying to get out. Dad kept pushing him back into the house and telling him it was cold and rainy but Kitty is DUMB! Have I ever mentioned that before? Even Dad agrees, Kitty is dumb! Anyway, the Beast finally manages to scoot around Dad and out he goes...into the pouring, freezing rain. And what does he do? He stops in the middle of the yard and looks straight up into the sky. Like no one told him it was raining. Duh! Dad tried to chase him back into the house but he just kept running around the yard so Dad finally gave up and went back to work but not before he drove through a big puddle and splashed the Beast. Dumb 'ol Kitty took off running into the back yard.

A few minutes later Mom and I were sitting in the artroom reading a book and I see this big, black blob by the back door. I ran over as quick as I could (to protect my Mom) and burst into giggles....yeah, I laughed!!! There was Kitty looking like a drowned rat!!!! I laughed and laughed. Mom says she never heard me laugh before but she swears that was what I was doing. (Of course I was, he looked hilarious!) Mom is such a softy, she let him in and he hung his head in shame and slunk off to crawl into bed and warm up.

It was one of the best days I have had in a long time, better than TV. :-)

Mom got her entire desk cleaned yesterday so today she did artwork. She completed a deco spread and a card for a friend. Of course, she forgot to scan them so I could show you. I helped a little. She was sorting buttons and I jumped right in and helped sort. I moved all the shiny ones into a pile on the floor. Well, I tried to make a pile but they kept bouncing and rolling around the room. Mom sent me to bed after a while, she said that I had helped enough.

Today is one of those slow, lazy kind of days. This morning we called grandma. I love it when we call grandma, Mom is so happy and laughs a lot. I snuggle into her lap and she pets me while she talks. Sometimes I get to talk too. I wanted to today but then couldn't think of anything to say so Mom took back the phone.

Right now Mom is cleaning her desk so she doesn't have time to play with me. It is cold and rainy outside so she says now is a good time to clean up. Plus, she has some more art projects she needs to get done and says she can't find any place to work so it must be time to clean again.

I am keeping an eye on her and trying to stay out of the way.

That beast Kitty sure is getting on my nerves. I was trying to eat my breakfast this morning and he walks up behind me and swats me on the butt. I whirl around and hiss at him and Dad yells at me...ME! I am the innocent victim and he yells at me and tells me to be quiet! HUMPF!!!! Something needs to be done about that beast!

Mom had a very bad day today. Her back was hurting her and she had a headache that just wouldn't go away. When she doesn't feel good I take care of her. I climbed into her lap and snuggled with her. She says it makes her feel better to have me close. And I love being close to her so it works out well for both of us.

Dads sure are different than Moms. Today Dad stayed home sick. He fixed himself some breakfast, eggs and cheese. I climbed up onto the footstool in front of him and gave him a sweet look. He just ignored me. I then gave him my wide-eyed, pouty face. Again, nothing. Mom would have been putty in my paws by this point. I finally tried the pathetic whine with the pouty look. Still nothing, this guy must have no heart. Mom is definitely going to hear about this. And I am sure she will comfort me with all kinds of goodies too!

I read a book with Mom today. I think maybe I need glasses because I seem to only be able to see the words if I press my nose against the pages. Mom was getting annoyed with me. She said I was in her way. I just wanted to see. Geez, you try to spend some quality time with someone!

Mom and I worked on art projects today

Mom is way behind on some of her art projects so I helped her out today. She was making ATCs and I made sure to keep those colored pencils moving for her. For some reason she didn't seem too happy. I thought they looked very pretty rolling across the desk. And did you know, lace is almost as much fun to play with as yarn?

Mom is still hard at work on a mini book and a couple ATCs but I am going to go take a nap. Here are the ATCs we made this morning.

My first blog post

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a while now. My mom works hard all day and hasn't had a lot of time lately to update my website. I figure this will help her out.

Today started out great. Dad fed us (Kitty and I) soft food for breakfast. We usually only get that for dinner and have to eat the hard, crunchy stuff in the morning. Not today!!!

It snowed today. It NEVER snows here so this was a big surprise. I love to watch the snow, it is almost as much fun as watching leaves blow around. Of course, the snow melted as soon as it landed which is fine because then my mom was able to come home safe and sound.

I miss my mom when she is gone and I met her at the door today, like I always do, with a big meow and lots of hugs and kisses.

Guess that is enough for my first entry. I need my rest, mom and I are going to work on crafts in the morning. Lots of fun little things to toss on the floor!
