Kitten now has an official name, Tigger. He is just so adorable and such a love bug. Puppy and Scooter are still adjusting to having this strange, rambunctious critter in the house.
Today Mom and I went to downtown Decatur for a stroll amongst the shops with Rebecca, her mom Ellen, and Jan. It would be cool to live in an area where you can just walk out and shop and dine without needing the car. It was a lovely, crisp afternoon and some neat shops.
My family came over today and we had a very nice afternoon and dinner with all the usual trimmings. We even had a few rounds of playing Catch Phrase. My brother Scott said a nice prayer before eating about being thankful everyday for the things we see and the things we might not see. Being thankful is something that is easy to forget sometimes but so important. We all have different struggles in our daily lives but God is always so good to us.
So you get two blogs in one night. Last week my friend Renee talked me into baby sitting a kitten she aquired in the hopes that I would keep him. I figured that would be likely even though I really wanted a girl kitty. Renee said I could always go back to having three cats. I think two is enough for now. Little Bit doesn't have a name yet. Renee called him Romeo but I'm not sure it fits him. Rebecca came up with Spike and I thought about Tiger. Still not sure. Can't just call him Kitten. We already have a dog that never got past the name of Puppy but it suits him. So let's have a name the kitty contest. Not sure what the prize will be but never fear. It won't be the cat.
My older cat, Scooter, still isn't sure what he thinks about this. He is oddly fascinated while at the same time very annoyed. Kitten thinks he is a big chew toy. It's funny to watch. Well it's past my bedtime. ttfn
I know I've been a slacker lately. Had a project to do at work that involved a lot of evening work. So, tired equals no creativity. A couple weeks ago I started a journal book and have created part of it but am stumped as to what I want to do next. Oh, well. It'll hopefully come to me. And I still have to make Christmas cards.
Saturday, on the spur of the moment, mom and I decided to drive to North Georgia in search of real cooking pumpkins. There is a flea market that we used to pass all the time that had pumpkins. Thought it was in Georgia but we actually crossed into North Carolina before getting to it. We bought pumpkins from there a few years ago and one of them made the best pumpkin soup ever. Unfortunately the new lady selling them doesn't know anything about which ones are for what. Bought some cooking pumpkins anyway. I'll take a picture of them the next time I'm home when it's daylight out. Here are some pictures from our half day trip. We didn't really stop anywhere since we didn't leave early enough but did manage a few.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
