Cats and Sunshine

I found these images on Pinterest
a while ago...
they make me wish my cats
could safely go outside

they both enjoy the kitchen floor
in the morning
when the rays are big enough to share

Olivia has always sought out a spot
with sunshine for napping

Melrose likes the sun best
when he's in the garage on a concrete floor

inside he's more likely to pick
a soft spot
on a blanket on a couch or chair

every day I am so happy
Mom has the cats to talk to
she loves that Olivia sleeps in the middle of her bed

Melrose loves all the attention
she lavishes on him
and how much her helpers
Loretta and Cars fuss over him
he is so much friendlier than before

an older punched piece
of my design
one I sold and regret selling
some day I'll hook one
no more punching for me

10 days off starting tomorrow
a few long planned vacation days
then some FMLA
time for Dad's surgery...

I love that pattern. It would be great as a hooked piece.

Why no more punching???? Here you are, stopping, and here I am, wanting to learn. Haha
Best of luck with your Dad's surgery. I hope he comes thru it with flying colors!!!!!
Remember, take care of Kelley too!!! OK?

Love that first picture, nice watercolor. I also liked your punched piece, you always know the perfect colors to use. I hope you can have some fun time during your days off.

I don't sell much, but wish I had back my witch rug, so understand your wishing you hadn't let it leave you.

You find and post, the most wonderful photos and art at its best!
