Jethro...

Introducing....
Jethro the Wailing Blues Siamese !!!



I had been hearing this kitty under the Patio/Porch for several days. My girls would Come out, Ruuun over to the crawlspace- and then Stare into the Gloom.

Then would Commence this "Mgrow   MEoW   MMRRooowww   MeurrrSHREIKYrooow", that could last until the Girls got bored or I came back Into the house to get away from the sounds.


There were never any sounds of Direct Contact- Smacking Slapping or Physical Scuffling. I knew the Kittheh wasn't injured probably- cause the Wailingly Screeches would quit as soon as the Girls came inside.



Then as days of Sweet-Talkin', Cajoling, Pleading, Wheedling, and bits of out right Beguiling along with frequent saucers of dry crunchies left... Out onto the Patio Kittheh came...



Beautiful Buff and Chocolate coated Apple-head Siamese...
Kittheh was named Jethro...


It took several days of me sitting in my Rocker(off my Rocker some say) talking loving Gibberish and Much 'Cat Whisperer' anxiety that Jethro came and began to fleetingly let me pet and gingerly touch the Chocolate tail.

Ahem...
It was then duly noted that upon my Extreme Visual Acuity that Jethro...
...was in fact a Girl !!

Yes... I iz a Gurrrl Lady...


She has been Spayed as she absolutely Loathes the sight and Presence of Poor Frankie... he passes with wide berth...  and if not- That Issue with be taken care of 'Toot Sweet' !!

And now that a few weeks have passed I truly belive she was Cast-Off.
She is very Sweet Natured. She lets me pick her up for Minutes at a time. Purrrrs and Purrrs and Purrrrrrssss. She has even jumped onto my lap.
She will answer to her Masculine name so I'm not going to change it.

And now when I call her--- Jethroooo --- she comes a Flying.


Just look at those Crystal Blue Eyes and say you wouldn't fall in Love !!


Oh, and Frankie ?
He has Tamed enough that I am allowed to touch his nose and Tip of his Tail... And he comes Into the house to eat !!
Progress--- Slow and Sure !!

Crocheting a Blankie & Hat...

My nieces little boy just had his second (!?!) birthday so he was the Happy Recipient of a Custom Handcrafted Primary Coloured Blankie !!




 I call Anna my niece... actually she is the Middle Daughter of my Bestest Friend since we were 14- Debbie's daughter...
Mostly kid colours and this was my First Ginormous Granny Square so somewhere it went Wonky & the outer most edges tried to Ripple...




It was very Calming to Crochet tho... Just going Around and Around until it felt like Blue needed to me added... or Orange !! 



It Seemed to get Really Big Really Fast the last Few Stripes...




Actually It turned out rather Nice & Cheery & Cuddley !!

 Birthday Boy just loves the character Elmo so I tried my hand at a Googley-Eyed Red/Orange hat...



You do have to admit he does really have Googely Eyes !!


This was the Un-Blurry-ist photo taken at his party...
He is a Fast Moving Giggling Machine !!
 
Oh...
Are Thirty Something Dads supposed to like Elmo too ?



I might have to make him a Batman hat for his B-day !!

~Morning is Squawking & Churriping~

...yes Churriping is too a word !!!

Supposed to be in the mid to upper 70's today--- Yeah !!
With possability of rain showers this evening !! Droop...

But for right now all the birds out in the yards are Squawking, Trilling, Whistling, and there is one Little fellow that makes the noise like the Invading Aliens Remote Eye thingy in the original version of War of the Worlds (Gene Barry- loved him)--  a  Woobing Woobing  mechanical noise... Poor Birdy cracks me up everytime !!

Drug out my baby acrylic paint bottles and did some touchups...



These two flowers buckets have that raised metal decoration... so I painted them up in My colours !!



This Large Bucket had a Blue Daffodil on it...
I kid you not !!

So out came the Churchill Creme spray paint for a Nice Change...
And then I went thru a file folder of Floral printouts... Got my Mod-Podge and Va Va Voom !!



This is the "Beautiful Bouquet" clip-art from The Graphics Fairy I used..
Looks rather Grand If I Do Say So !!



Found these Moroccan type Lanterns on Amazon-  Have them Hung up now and all I need to do is---




--- Get those little battery operated fakey Candle thingys to put in them.




This one hangs right over my head... And they do look Sparkely when the Sun shines thru the Glass !!

Off to grab a Fresh cup of Nescafe'...

I do Hope we all have a Lovely day today !!
