A note before I begin, this should have been posted yesterday, but due to whatever I could not transfer my photos to the computer so this just had to wait. Hope you enjoy it.
Today is one of those days that would make everyone happy, at least part of the time. We’ve had a bit of sunshine and plenty of rain. Whether inside or out today has been my day for welcome visitors and time for a little creativity.
Of course, what happens when I am outside? I happen to find things before they make their way into the dumpsters. Today it was a television I saved. It works fine, but was so heavy that a neighbor was on his way to drop it in the dumpster, I immediately sent a text to my son who mentioned he wanted a new television for his family room in the new house. I got an immediate reply and as long as it took them to drive the truck the 2 miles to my home is all the longer it was in my possession.
This weekend I had picked up a couple of things at a yard sale. First up was a set of bowls. Two snack-sized bowls, perfect for the little ones, and a serving bowl.
And then I found a very ugly tray. I didn’t get a chance to take a before picture, but it was a dirty off white, with decals on the tray. But here it is after being sanded, cleaned and painted.
I asked my grand-daughter if she would like to come help decorate a tray with me. I can say I had help and it gets me past the “this isn’t perfect so I want to hide it” Yep, I want things perfect. I got out the glue sticks and these that she had found on a trip to the home improvement store.
I cut the triangles in different sizes so that it would be easier to fill in where the 3-year-old left open gaps. She arrived with her new best friend, gift from Daddy.
Poor kitty is so loved she is rarely left alone. I sure hope she likes being a lap cat.
In between the crafting, Princess Kitty had to be found and picked up. Rain came and the cat was especially curious. I tried to catch a picture of her hanging from the door to watch, but Grand-child spotted what I was about to do and ran to take her kitty off the door. Of course, can’t punish kitty she only wanted to watch the rain. So here’s how she got to see the rain.
We finished the tray, for now, I still need to put a sealer coat on it when I’m sure it’s dry.
We had leftover triangles, so with some found paper everyone got a picture by the young artist. Here’s mine.
So much for yesterday, today I met a new neighbor. With college back in session we have had a few new people move in. I was asked who cleared the field and if every one could use it. I was glad to see another person who wanted to use the field. What surprised me most of all was what he mainly wanted to use it for. To let his pet play. He had to bring his pet outside for us to meet. He said it was a cat, then he said it was a kitten, then we were told to wait he just had to show us. It was a skunk! She is adorable and quite affectionate, but that’s a new one for me. Can’t wait til the little one’s get to see her they are going to love this!
