Goodies

I just love getting mail, especially when there is a box of felt included! I ordered a few shades of pink (getting ready for Valentine's Day), a teal and purple that I think will look great together, and more green and red for Christmas.

In the last few days I've made some Christmas ornaments and a candle/jar wrap that I will soon add to my etsy shop. I'm also considering adding a shopping cart to my website for those that don't want to join etsy. That involves more html stuff that I don't understand, but I'm hoping the program I chose to use plays nice.

We had a crazy storm run through yesterday with 70+ mph winds and I discovered a design flaw to the cat house I built with my dad for the kittens that showed up on my deck in May. That's a long story that I will save for another day. So since the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day, the cat house got a cleaning. New hay and clean blankets, and left the lid/roof open to dry out. Good thing we decided to put down that sheet of vinyl flooring as it made clean-up a breeze. Yes that's right, the cat house has vinyl flooring...left over from a bathroom remodel at my parents' house. Thank goodness my dad saves his scraps! It also has insulation and a shingled roof. Only the best for my feral cats!

I'm hoping the beautiful weather made the kiddo's school field trip to the national park that is practically in our backyard a lot of fun. I'm not even sure what they were doing there, but that seems to be par for the course with a 13-year old.

I hope you are having beautiful weather where you are!
