A Kitty Bed

While making a Hallowe'en costume for my daughter, I had some fake fur laying around on the floor. My cat, Shadow began sleeping on one of the piles every day!

She seemed to like it so much, that I decided to make it into a Kitty Bed for her. I just folded over a rectangle of the stuff, filled it with polyester from an old pillow, and sewed it up. Now she sleeps on it all the time!

Our Ugly Bathroom

Okay...because Blogger uploads photos backwards...I'm now showing some "After" photos before you see the "Before" photos.
Here it is before we grouted or installed the fixtures.

Here's the demolition stage.

Take a good look, because we're beginning demolition!

I can't believe someone did this! How stupid is this? Whom ever it was that did the original tile work, did this!

Now it looks like this!

I almost forgot, the dumbest thing....they put the only towel bar IN the shower! Nice if you like your towel wet.
I will be sure to upload photos of our progress fixing this horrible mess.

A Cat Named Sprite

Digging through old photos I came across this gem. Little Sprite waking up from a nap, yawning and stretching. It looks like she's angry though. It was just pure luck that the shot turned out like it did. I took it with my old 35 mm SLR Nikon. That's before digital became widely available. Back in 1996. (Boy I feel old)
Sprite was adopted from the Humane Society as a 6 month old kitten. Funny she never grew much bigger, and she had the cutest, tiniest little meow!
I ended up having her only for a few months before it was necessary to find her a new home. (I had to move away to Arizona for a job). Luckily, a friend and co-worker wanted her and brought her to live with her other cat, Tiger, on a large estate. Sprite did very well there, but I was informed that she did pass away not too long ago.
