Door and Roses

Door and Roses

I have to admit to much distraction yesterday -- I kept dashing outside to sit on the front steps to watch Boots and her babies -- just to see how things were going. Being a 'first-time kitty Nonna" has its 'musts' afterall! So painting took a backseat to this 'under-my-nose' event!

We also worked on pear butter preserves between 'Boots-Watching' .. so things have been a bit out of the ordinary for me.

I can report that Mom and her five are doing well, and once the sun is up, I'll take more photos -- but I have to admit that watching that tumbling mass of fur balls has tickled me to pieces -- as a kind friend wrote yesterday, I'll have my own built in comedy team with this group -- and I can see already she's absolutely right. I'm also finding they're a fabulous stress reliever ... !! Only wonder if I could feed them all those preserves I've been working on? (just kidding! LOL)
