So not in order, but here we go!
Elvis, Fifi and Marie were moved to the new house. Elvis and Fifi promptly ran away. I've been handing out flyers and checking the pound with no success :(
On the way to the city pound to make sure they hadn't been picked up, I saw something on the side of the road. It was partially covered up in a drainage ditch. First, I thought dead squirrel. Second, dead kitten. Nope, live kitten! She was covered in tar and had rocks matted in her fur. She was pitiful. When I went to the pound, I think her siblings were there. They were about the same size and the same color. How did she escape?
After several baths, she is so cute and acts like a kitten now :) She scared me last night when she decided to jump from the second story to the first and landed on a wooden stair. She made an awful thud and squeak. And she was very weird for about 30 minutes. But she seems ok now. Kittens must be made like 2 year olds, rubber and crazy glue!
(and I sort of think that I'll never see Fifi and Elvis again, that is why I was given the kitten. Natalie named her Kaitlynn after her best friend at school.)
Bye bye yellow! Hello chopstick!
My pretty yellow flowers. I think they were lilies of some sort. They bloomed for about a month and died off. But now they are coming back with more blooms. I have another ring of what I thought was decorative grass that bloomed too. With deep red lilies. I hope to add more bulbs on the sides of the house when I have more $$.
My pretty little girl!Natalie's walls, a work in progress. I have green and purple circle to work with too. Once I get everything up, I'll trim off the excess circle to get a clean mickey head.
Her curtains. Natalie's room is still a mess. heck the house house is a mess. And let's not even talk about the condo.
Chelle's wedding (really out of order!)
Cake! My dress was about the color of the frosting.
I like this picture a lot :)
My child posing with her dollars. She can be bribed with dollars. Probably not the best habit to promote huh?
BTW, my kid could so be a professional flower girl, she was so cute! She did step-step-petal. Then at the end she did a handful. And when she came to stand next to me, she blew kisses to the crowd when the was a music delay. What a ham!
Her mom and step-dad.
His mom & dad.
Posing in the loft, getting ready.
Putting on her "heee-aalls".
My new commute. In the other house, I drove over a mountain, it was quite a pretty drive. The condo was pure city, nothing to see. Now it is half nature, half city.
First you head towards all the trees...
Then you drive through them..
Then you cross the lake...
Then you pass the golf course...
Then you get it a mess of expensive mini-mansions. Keep going to where the normal houses are. That is where we live!
The baby giving me the stink eye. I post this just to prove she isn't always sweet and to show you my bedroom color. It has grown on me, much darker and brighter than I wanted. But it is very beachy so I'll live with it for awhile.
Bye bye yellow!Hello meander blue!
My chair project...
Before - several years of sun had done a number on the chairs.
And after - I am the QUEEN of spraypaint!
Super excited about her new bathing suit! (notice the tan wall!)
Whew I think that is it. It is going to take me 6 months to get everything set. It doesn't feel like home yet, I guess because I'm afraid to mess it up. And funny as this sounds, I'd much rather be in my little house still. It was hom-ier.
Bye for now!
