At home ...
After a very long and challenging day it is a joy to have been home for a few hours, to take a moment to appreciate all that I have, all that I am. To remember that I am not equal to the sum of my days experiences.
This lovely boy is Phantom, he is my un-cat. Phantom had a tough start to life and is pathetically grateful for every cuddle and moment of affection he receives. He doesn't quite match the rest of our family with the ginger hair, and human names. He doesn't quite trust Maggie (the woofer) or Charles ( my yet to be introduced pussy cat) and is as grateful of the affection Hamish gives as he is of mine. A few weeks ago I took him for his annual shots, he loves being held so much that he would not stop purring to have his heart listened to. We tried tapping his nose, listening as the needle went in, flicking his ear, all to no avail - he continued to loudly express his appreciation for all the attention from two humans.
Tonight I have started another hanging doll family and had an idea for a third. I have gesso'd the cover of a small journal - which has the working title of 'pink women', yep the pink bug has got me! I made a handful of ATC's too. So there are projects in the pipeline, but nothing to share yet.
