Miss Molly had 11 kittens yesterday afternoon! Two of them were born dead so she has 9... it's overwhelming to us. No wonder the poor cat was huge and could barely walk. They are cute though, much smaller than the last time by almost half the size. Some are grey and some are black. The plan was to have her spayed, but with everything that was going on with my hubby's heart at the time, this took a backseat. Not this time. I hate feeling so irresponsible. It's going to be a challenge to find homes for all of them and I am going to start looking right away.

I haven't been feeling well most of the week. My throat has been sore since last week. The worst of that is over, but my body has been achy and that along with a sore throat doesn't help. I feel energetic, just not well if that makes sense. It's also been gorgeous outside and I have been bundled up in long pants and a sweatshirt most of the day. The good weather is coming to an end though in another day or two. We are going from the high 80's to the 60's. Oh well, it had to come sometime. It's just that much closer to really cold temps which I love just as much as the heat. Come on Winter!

I have just two things to share today. One is a little idea notebook I created with some gear buttons from My Acrylic Album. I got brave and tried some new things and I like how they ended up on the grungy side.

And then my card for the Di Hickman Sept. card sketch #3. Forgive the horrible coloring on the photo... I am not sure what I was thinking when I edited it.
I didn't even get around to creating anything for the Sketch This sketch this week.

I have finished book 3 in the Twilight series and began book 4 yesterday. I really want to stretch it out, but at the same time I want to devour it. I am getting excited about the movie, too. I think the older girls and I might go since they are into the series as well.

I have some projects to work on... I am finally feeling up to scrapping so I am digging into the fun stamps for the Purple Onion finals. I have some ideas and I hope I can get them to work out like I envision. We'll see.

I start work on Sunday. I am a bit nervous, but mostly because I still have to find some shoes. Michael's has a dress code now and I have to wear either solid black or solid white shoes and finding shoes that don't bother my ankle is a challenge. Plus I need to wear the inserts with the shoes. I only have two pair that I can wear and they have some color to them, so I can't use them. I really need to get out there are start looking for something. Grrr...

Have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to stop by Color{Me}Daisy this weekend, there is a fun crop going on.
