On the Road Again

 By the time you read this I should be back at Daughter's for my big nine day kitty sitting adventure. I've packed tons of stuff to keep me busy but what I really want to do whenever I'm away from home is EAT. Something about preparing meals just for myself makes my appetite go crazy. Hopefully I've packed enough stuff to keep my mind off food. My new watercolors are fun and should keep me busy. This is what I did with them on my last trip.

 The colors are bright but very "grabby". They stay where you put them so if you want a soft gradient look it's not going to happen. I started my new watercoloring book last week at home. I stopped when the page started looking like a bad Hawaiian shirt. I was underwhelmed by my painting skills but I did have fun.

 The Mister has to go to his brother's birthday party today so while I was down in the craft room he asked for a quick card to stick a gift card in.

I went a little overboard with the birds but it's a guy card and they aren't picky.

Nine whole days with the grandkitties. Wow.
Daughter travels with a stuffie that reminds her of her dear departed kitty. This time instead of a plane ride it's getting a road trip to Maine. She'll be in a yurt for a week at a wellness resort.

Before she left Daughter sent me this photo of Emi to prove she does come out from under the bed and act like a normal cat.
We'll see.


  1. I hope your trip goes well--Emi will remember you this time! You will have a good time-stay busy and you won't eat so much! lol

  2. Enjoy your time with Emi. I love the vibrant flowers - nothing wrong with a bright Hawaiian shirt! 😎

  3. Emi is ADORABLE!!!! Maybe with 9 days she'll come out for you too. Bring lots of kitty treats. I haven't met a cat yet that can't be won over with some kitty cookies.

  4. Hope you have fun kitty sitting and get lots of crafting done.

  5. I cannot wait to see how much you accomplish on your projects in nine days with only your projects to work on and a few cats to enjoy. The kitten is so adorable and she will probably be in your lap within a few days.

  6. In a day or two, Emi is going to be your best friend!

  7. Oh I love that watercolor. It does remind my of Hawaii and nothing wrong with that! :-) You're going to have so much fun with nine days to play.
    Love the card you came up with. It's perfect for a guy.
    I'll bet Emi is eating out of your hand within days. She is darling.

  8. Pretty kitty:0 I like watercolors too...but the paper makes a big difference:)

  9. I think I need a week away in a yurt, that sounds like so much fun. Darling kitty, what a sweet belly.
