Today I heard a huge crash. I ran out into the front hall and saw one of the downstairs hall cat platforms had ripped right out of the wall. Apparently when Birdie was leaping off it onto a higher platform it was the last straw for the 6 wall anchors and the whole shelf ripped right out [thankfully she was fine!]
Almost exactly a year ago I was busy making stained glass stars for the holidays. I decided to have fun with a few of the smaller ones and decorated them like snowflakes. This year I decided to turn more into snowflakes. I grabbed 5 of last year’s stars & added wire swirls to 2 of them, nested circles to another, and wire triangles to 2 more!
Today I decided to winterize the catio. I thought about doing it last year but never did. It’s became sort of a necessity because the cat door in the dining room window keeps blowing open creating a very cold draft. I bought some clear plastic tarp at Home Depot and used my Dewalt power stapler to attach it to the catio and connector.
Back in August I shared my mission to virtually bicycle across the US from Ipswich to the Seattle Aquarium. I am logging all the miles I ride on the recumbent bike at the YMCA into myvirtualmission.com and each time I log new miles my virtual icon moves across the map.
Last year for Christmas & my birthday hubby bought me packs of stained glass from Delphi. Each kit came with a variety of different colored and patterned stained glass sheets. Some are really cool and some are quite unique. I have 4 sheets of what I call “Christmas glass” – it’s clear, red, and green. I decided to do a Christmas project with it this year.
