Absolutely NO quilty content so skip if that's what you're looking for. :-)

Thought I'd better check in again. I know I promised pictures of the booty from when Susan and I had retail therapy in Vicksburg but you're assuming that after 9 days I've unpacked the car. Which I haven't! I do have to unpack it tonight so I can take it to the shop tomorrow so maybe pictures in a day or so.

But I do have pictures to share. I believe I promised pics of new kitties. :-) First let's set the stage.
This is Bo. He lives next door. Isn't he pretty?


These are 2 of the latest litter of kittens to appear. Bo tried to deny responsibility but since all our toms are black or gray we're not buying that. Think we should sue for child support? LOL! Unfortunately as beautiful as they are they are totally wild as they were pretty good sized before we got the first glimpse of them. There were 5 in this litter. Which brings us up to 14 kittens!!!!! And of the whole bunch only ONE is tame. A little yellow/white lad(we think) that David has named Timothy or Timmy for short. If he does in fact turn out to be a girl then that'll just get changed to Tammy.

I went shopping yesterday for a birthday gift for a co-worker who turns 50 next week. (BIG EVIL GRIN!) Really it's not TOOOOO bad. Especially since I turn 50 in January and he has assured me he WILL remember any and all tackiness heaped upon him at his party. LOL! Can't show a picture of what I bought just in case he reads my blog. (I don't think so but as he's been shown stuff on it before I can't say for sure he doesn't read it.) But I can show off MY new desk toy. A new stress reliever to join my slinky. (I mean WHO can be stressed when playing with a slinky?)


Isn't it pretty? But not as pretty as what's inside. :-)



I'm really surprised I was able to get as good a picture as I did with just holding the camera lens up to the eyepiece. I guess I lied as this kinda DOES have quilty content. As the sales clerk was ringing up my purchases she commented that these fascinated her because she was a quilter and thought these would make wonderful quilt designs! I laughed and told her I was a quilter too and had always been fascinated by kaleidoscopes. I just love the color and texture. And if you don't like one pattern then just a quick turn and you have a whole new look. I'll admit I didn't get too much done yesterday afternoon as I spent too much time playing with my new toy. :-)

Tomrrow I'm going to take a day off to run errands in the AM and then in the afternoon my hubby and I have a date to go see the new Harry Potter movie. :-) We haven't had date day in a LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGG time so it's way past due. We do try to eat out somewhere nice every few weeks but it's not the same thing as holding hands in a dark movie theatre. LOL! Which unfortunately will probably be filled with screaming kids who've been dropped off by their parents at the "movie day care". But I'm not going to let that spoil my time. And I will break my diet for popcorn cause what's a movie at the theatre without popcorn. LOL!

Guess I'd better get back to work and get something done today since I'm taking tomorrow off. That is IF I can leave my new toy alone. LOL!

What happens to all those kittens? Do people drop off their cats at your house and that's why you have so many litters being born there?

swooze said...

If you get a chance look for a taleidascope. Not sure of that spelling! The color and design come from the object you are looking at. I love mine!

Darling kittens-- OK by me that there is no quilty content. Sooner or later everyone has to take the needle and scissors out of there hands for a few moments. Aren't you glad you have other things in yoour life too?!!?!?!?

Suze said...

Definitely some Siamese blood in there somewhere. Those are the prettiest blue eyes on those darling babies.

Sweet P said...

Cute kittens. I love your kaleidoscope. I hope it helps the stress.

Floss said...

Adorable kittens, it's a shame that they are wild.
New toys are meant to be played with, enjoy your Kaleidoscope, and Harry potter, I am planning on going to see it this weekend.

Pam said...

Yes, Nancy, we need to remember we are turning 50 in just a few short months (although you ARE a few days older than I) so we need to be cautious of how we help others "celebrate" this milestone in 2007

I really like looking at kaleidoscopes too. It is amazing the number of different combinations they can make. I did see one with a marble at the end in Roscoe Village, where it picks up the colors from whatever it is aimed at. It is really gorgeous too, and I almost bought it, but the children were not impressed.

Vicky said...

Oh, gosh, I have a love thing with kaleidoscopes. I had a ton of them growing up. I think my middle-aged parents liked that I was quietly entertained!

I've been checking in for your loot pix! But, hey, I certainly can relate to leaving them in the trunk! LOL

Take care, sweetie!

Mine have left the car, but that's about as far as they have gotten. I did take the black/browns and have my light/dark pairs for the Bento Box in a ziplock bag with the pattern. The book with the quilt pattern for the green/blue/yellows is "open" on top of the box. My last day of my vacation was cut short when State Survey walked in on Monday at 10:30 am and I had to go to work for "Hell week". We did okay on survey, but it was a LONG week.
