A day in the LIFE...

Awwwww a day in the Life of a CAT! I was cleaning out my back porch (from me making it look like a tornado hit down, since moving my studio upstairs) and well, I was moving things around and Lulu ALWAYS has to be near me. After moving this shelf and getting some things put back in it...he had to go and make himself at home. Funny how he always jumps on my things in my work area but no where else. He is so adorable and near and dear to my heart...
He is so sweet! I got Lulu shortly after my first doggie (as an adult) passed away. I said I never wanted to have another cat in the house and here I have 3 (and Boo - still being fostered). Go figure! I wouldn't trade my kitties for anything...they have so much love to give and bring so many smiles to all or our faces...
Here is King. In this picture, King looks like "Who - ME". HA! He is a ham....and one of the nicest cats I have ever had. I still remember all of the months of watching him freeze and get frost bit and FINALLY, we gained his trust. I was so happy, when we finally earned his trust. It meant no more tears shed, from watching a cat suffer...He now has the life of a King...
Jordan and King have a "bond", that is beyond belief. Jordan can call King and he comes running like a dog. He follows Jordan around like he is a dog. Now, when Jordan is away at camp, he longs for Jordan and misses him. He sits in his room and waits for him...poor kitty. Jordan will be back on Friday and then King will be happy.
Here is little Miss Sydney. Out of all the rides that were in our area for the 4th, she picked the good old Merry-go-round. We had fun and the girls played some games too. I gave each of the kids some money and said, once it was gone, it was gone. Boy, they sure chose wisely what to spend it on. Funny how that works. I said you could spend it, save it or whatever and Jordan, he is becomming my "saver". He only spent 2 bucks. He is saving his money for "bigger and better" things...
Here is a few shots of the fireworks. Hard to catch them with a digital (with the time delay and so forth)...but thought these 2 pics turned out so pretty. It was so chilly out that night. Jordan was fishing while we waited for the fireworks too...
The fireworks above this writing right here, are some of my favorite. They sometimes touch the water below and that looks so neat! I love how they keep falling down. Well, that is it kiddies. I must go. I slept late, because I was up waaaaay late working last night. I am almost done with a new dollie. I will probably list her tomorrow....as today is filled with tie-dye at the Library with the girls. I am going to try and take some pictures there. Toodles for now. ~Tonya

Those are some of the cutest things I have ever seen. Kitties and kids alike.
Oh I just wanna hug both of the kitties. So sweet.
I showed K.T. the pic of Jordon and king, she said how old is he? I told her 13 and she said OMG he looks like is about 17! LOL

Can't wait to see the dolly my friend. I am off to have a break with the kids.
