Happy, Sad & Funny

happy face
I made this necklace for Bella. I’m bummed because the colors don’t show true. The yellow is very bright and so is the green and orange/red. I used cotton yarn I had. Not sure what brands they are as they were scrap balls in my cotton tote. I need to make Kylie one. Hers will be purple but not sure what other colors I will incorporate. This was really easy to make.

They can wear them and turn it to which ever side they are feeling like. I hope I don’t get in trouble with their mom. :o)
And I would like to introduce you to the latest member of my immediate family. Meet Mister, formerly Missy. And the story goes that she (he) showed up at work and I thought she (he) was feral. I started feeding her (him). It didn’t take long for her (him) to warm up to me and before I knew it she (he) was outside my work door all day long, crying to get in. Or under my car. So before I got in trouble at work I caught her (him) and brought her (him) home. So at first she (he) was outside. Hector was not a happy camper that he  had been replaced. He made it horrible for her (him). So I made an appointment at SNAC (Spay Neuter Alliance Clinic) in Ridgeland, SC to get her (him) fixed before a pregnancy resulted. I was also afraid that she (he) was FIV positive (had feline leukemia). She (He) had a few of the symptoms. So I had her (him) tested first to see if she (he) was. If so then I told them to put her (him) down before the fixing went on. They said they would call if that was the case. I took off Thursday and Friday from work because I had to have her (him) there at 8 am and pick her (him) up at 8 am the next morning if she (he) wasn’t going to be put down.  Well, imagine my jaw dropping surprise when I went to pick her (him) up………..she was a he that had already been neutered!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I was so dumbfounded.  I have no clue how old he is but he does weigh 10 pounds. He is sweet as can be too. So his name was changed from Missy to Mister.  I felt so dumb. I had even made a cute little flower with a name tag to go on top of the cage I took him in. So now he is a spoiled rotten Mister (can you tell???), who loves me to death. This picture is sooo darn funny. He is sitting in the chair laying on the top of the tower sleeping. He was that way for over an hour. I’m thinking that Mister was probably dropped off at work. Or in the surrounding area and found his way to me. I’m such a sucker for animals. I couldn’t not feed him. And my work is right next to the interstate. So he is mine now.
Oh, and that dang Hector has sprayed my front and back door. It stinks to high heaven. I tried cleaning the front door with bleach but it’s still there.  I think maybe he has come back and resprayed because it’s really bad. Any suggestions?
I have more to tell you about the passing of a friend of mine but it’s still rather raw. The viewing is tonight and the funeral is tomorrow. Someone my age. Have I told you lately how much I hate death? :O(
I hope your week is a good one with lots of sun on your face and a smile to match the brilliance of the sun.

I think Leo thought it was time for his momma to be happy again and made sure you found Mister.

What a fantastic picture of Mister! It's nice to have a tiny bit of laughter amidst the grief. I'm so sorry about your friend.

I'm glad you found Mister and that he makes you happy. I don't know what to tell you about Hector - I think maybe he's just letting Mister know that this is his house.

My condolences on the loss of your friend. ((hugs))

Soon to be, the crazy cat lady?
Have you always had the word verification? Surely, I've not forgotten. ;)

Well, Mister could have never found a better home!

I am so glad you found each other...seems like it was the right time for the both of you.

Keep that hook moving.

And hugs for the passing of your friend.

Blessings always
