What a day!

Well..as you can see by the picture, which isn't very clear, both siamese appeared this morning. I took the shot through the sliding glass door since I was in a hurry...cute!
My day started off with me going to grandparents day with my granddaughter, which was fun to do. I had to take an order for a set of pilgrims to a shop in a local town so as soon as I left the school I headed home. On the way home there was an accident so was directed around it, then on the way to town another bunch of flashing lights...a house on fire! Once again, had to be directed around the fire trucks on the highway! I delivered my items, did a little shopping then decided to call my dh to see if he wanted to meet me at Sam to put gas in the Acura (since I NEVER put gas in my vehicle) which he said he would...then of course he asked where I wanted to eat!! That was fine...then he asks if we should switch vehicles as I had another stop to make...so I get in the Jeep and take off. I hear someone honking but didn't see anything so made my way out of the parking lot and soon after see a cop behind me. I stop at the stop light...turn onto the highway and he goes right behind me. I turn onto another highway and he does too! Now I figure I am not doing anything wrong so not to worry! Soon his lights come on and I pull over. He says....you have no brake lights at all...so gives me a fix it ticket..which isn't so bad but then dh calls me while the guy is checking my drivers license, etc giving me heck because I didn't stop when he honked at me in the parking light!! The cop says I can go on my way as long as I use my flashing lights or whatever the heck they are, and didn't even know where to find the thing to turn it on! I tell my dh that I am just pulling into the nearby parking lot and he can come and meet me! So...off to the parts place we go to buy new bulbs...and finally I arrive home at 8:30 tonight! I told him he is lucky I was driving it or he would have gotten the ticket either tonight or in the morning when he took off for work! So....turned into an eventful day! Till next time!!

Making herself at Home!!

Just looked out in back and here she is making herself at home for the day!!

She Returned for a visit!

Isn't this the prettiest siamese? There are two of them but only one returned today. A few months ago two of the cutest siamese kittens appeared and lived in our backyard for about 6 weeks. Then, our neighbor came over with her little girl and asked if we had seen a couple siamese...well had to give them back! Didn't really know where they belonged so fed them and the granddaughters named them...but had to give them up. Periodically they do return though and this morning I went out to sun dry my pilgrims and low and behold....she came running out of the flowers!! I tried to get a better pic but she kept wanting me to pet her so this is the best I could come up with! She is so lovable....and pretty!! If she stays a bit longer maybe I can get a better shot....maybe her sister will appear too!!

What a Day It Was!!!

Well...I am home now but so tired today! Yesterday began with me getting up early at 5:30 a.m. to get to the airport by 7:15...then to fly out at 8:00...(so I thought)! It was foggy on the way to the airport and Deb and I discussed that it was foggy but usually the flights were not cancelled. Well...got all checked in, went through security then waited and waited....no plane! Kept getting announcements that they were flying above waiting to land. Finally they announced that the plane went back to Medford to refuel. So...then it was announced the flight was cancelled. I go upstairs and TRY to get rescheduled. My...that took 45 minutes to finally rebook for a later flight. FINALLY the fog cleared and I was on the plane at 11:30 a.m. on my way to San Francisco. After arriving there I had a 4 hour wait! I was carrying a bag I borrowed from Deb loaded with an wonderful red wool blanket I found in a thrift store along with pieces of fabric I found at JoAnns...so couldn't even wander in the shops or find anything to eat as I would have to walk too far! That is when you miss your hubby to carry the extra loads! LOL So, I proceed to a little magazine shop and bought a small bag of nuts and sunflower seeds for a whopping $4.50 then drug my bag and butt over to a corner seat thinking maybe I could just sit there alone and watch people and eat my nuts since I hadn't eaten a thing that day...well..guess what...I sit right next to the plug in for people to plug in their computers..so I had a man sit right next to me and run his cord under my seat so...so much for sitting alone! He was nice though. He said he was missing his daughter's 16th birthday and that he lived in Mt Shasta and was flying to Medford....etc. He even had me watch his laptop and bags while he went to the bathroom...(so much for that airline security where you don't leave your bags with anyone you don't know)!! LOL Finally made my 45 min connection to Chico. Hubby picked me up...we went to eat....made a quick stop to see the granddaughters and daughter..then home by 8:30 p.m.! What would have been a 7-8 hr drive was a long 10 hour day at airports! Had a great visit with Deb though so all in all was worth it!

Today we went to church, ATE!! of course, went to Costco and home by 3:30...so you can see I got nothing done today either! Have to get busy and make a set of simple pilgrims tomorrow then hopefully start a santa or two for ebay.

Life can truly get very interesting...taking the most unexpected turns! But all in all, things do work out in the end....blessings till next time!

Deb's baby

Hello again!
Thought you all might like to take a peek at one of Deb's babies! She is a constant companion in her craft room and loves to say across the back of her neck while she sews....can't even imagine that! Of course, I have no animals other than those that wander through my yard from time to time. Heading home in the morning so hope to post something new when I return.

I am here!!

I did it! I am not sure what I am doing but will eventually get the hang of it!
I am in Oregon visiting my daughter Deb (Dollgiver's Attic)...will be leaving tomorrow. We have had a great time shopping the antique stores, Christmas shopping and yesterday decorated her tree. I am posting a pic so all can see...so pretty! I will add more when I get home, and hopefully will have mine up after Thanksgiving!
