we made it in late last night from our week long trip out east visiting family.
lots of unpacking and catching up to do.
it's good to be back in chicago (and out of a moving vehicle) though i miss the dark starry skies of connecticut and pennsylvania.
while we were gone, the mammoth sunflower finally bloomed, the green tomatoes were ripening indoors, the BBQ grill blew off the deck from a storm and an aster just uprooted and tumbled away. must've been pretty windy cos i found a leaf in the bathtub!
going to a costume party tonight. have no idea what i'll wear- i always throw stuff together at the last minute. what are your trick or treating plans?
talk soon.. xoxo
hey! my siamese buddha bear-gnome mini sculpture, the bronwyn twins, was featured in etsy treasury "we're siamese". kitties and conjoined creatures... if you please! curated by dobleele.
there are 3 double-headed mini witch buddha bear-gnomes in my etsy shop, prices reduced so they find homes this *all hallows eve*. they are ultra mini sculptures, perfect for that curio cabinet or tiny nook needing a little good magic :)
have a marvelous monday... xoxo
now that cooler weather is approaching, i really would like to TNR 2 more ferals i've seen out and about; a black and an orange. just need to wrangle a volunteer to help transport them to the clinic cos it's too much stress for me to do single-handedly: the trapping, holding over night in my basement, early 7am clinic drop off/ pick up/ monitor and feed (overnight to 48 hrs for females)/ release. it is a great reward to help these cats and knowing their lives have been improved and preventing further kittens from being born. there are just so many healthy, socialized cats waiting in shelters that need homes.
today and all year round, please spread the good word about feral cats and how people can help with TNR (trap-neuter-release).
