Well...after trying to catch the cat...I've succeeded! I have chased & chased this thing so many times. It made it's home in my basement, but would come up to eat. The thing ran like greased lightning!!! It finally started slowing down and would peek from the top step at me, but would never come out until I left. Last night, I got a throw and hid behind it until the cat came upstairs... it ran in the familyroom and I closed the door. The battle kept on until the little guy went out the sliding glass doors. I did not see it leave, but there are not signs of the cat and no meowing.
Merrill, got up this morning and wondered why all the lights were on. I guess I was so tired that I didn't even turn the lights out. Not like me at all! It was about 1:30 before the battle was won! :)
Do you wanna know something funny? Mittens my favorite cat had kittens. They have been weaned at least a month to six weeks. Well, when I opened the door last night to feed my dog and cats, one of the kittens came in. We have looked all over for that cat. We can hear it meow, but cannot locate it. I think that it is probably behind my washer and dryer which are in a closet in my kitchen. I am putting out food and water. Merrill hates animals in the house, but I told him that if I had a cat, I want it to be a live cat and not a dead smelly cat! It is wild, so I don't know how long it will take to get it out. I am keeping the bedroom and bathroom doors closed. Who knows when I do locate it - how I am going to get it- it has never been held. Well, so much for my cat problem... Oh, the picture, I don't dress like that, but I run like that when I hear a meow! I was up a couple times last night when I heard the meow which goes through closed doors. I just can't locate the cat!!! :)
Amy doesn't like me to blog without pictures. So... here you go Amy. I fixed the red eye in this picture of the girls. Just thought she'd enjoy me posting their picture. :)
This has been a fun week. I've made my second batch of homemade vegetable soup. Merrill doesn't like soup in the summer, so I always look forward to fall when I can make soup. I've baked 3 good loaves of bread. I had one (#4) that did not rise right. Don't actually know what happened there, but that does happen sometimes.
Thursday night Buffy, Breanna & I we went to Sandra Hatfield's baby shower at the parsonage. She got a lot of nice things for little Levi.
Merrill, Steve & Wayne went to Southern OH hunting. So I've just kinda hung out today. I haven't had much relaxation time lately so it was welcome. :)
I finally got my pictures loaded onto my computer from last weeks events. My USB cord disappeared! :) Anyway, I staged this picture of Breanna. It reminds me of Beth & Amy's Holly Hobby things when they were young. I just love it! Hope you like it too!!!
Breanna likes hats that is why you see so many pictures of her with my hats on. She's a great "hat" model. She also likes tea parties and we usually have a lot of tea parties when she is around.
Check out my previous pictures to catch her at tea!
If you are wondering ... I am here. I just haven't been real faithful to this blog lately. I have been working on some more pressing projects which I hope will be finished soon! I have some place holders for some of the pictures that I took at the end of the week and over the weekend.
Of courese, the big thing was that our young married couples at church went to Gatlinburg. There were lots of babysitting grandparents! :) It really was fun and brought back old memories of days gone by when the children were home.
Well, I just thought I'd like to put up something cute today. I needed a funny story!

WELL OFFICER, IT HAPPENED THIS WAY I rear-ended a car this morning... I tell you, I knew then it was going to be a REALLY bad day. The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!! He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!" So I said, "Well, which one ARE you then?" That's how the fight started.........................
Green Thumb Monday, is still doable because our weather is so nice. There is late garden produce, flowers are still blooming, and there are butterflies. It is still a beautiful fall October morning. It will probably be one of the last nice working days outside. I'm not much of a cold weather person so, I will need to get some green thumb things done today to prepare for winter and next spring. (Mainly get rid of weeds and weed seeds & a little mowing.) I will need to mulch after the ground freezes, but that's about it for my outside work.
This is a poem that I wrote recently about God is the Master Painter. A tribute to the beautiful fall flowers that God has created for us to enjoy. Just thought that I'd share it with you.
God Is The Master Painter
God is the Master Painter He makes all things new. He paints the leaves of plants With shades of every hue.
Reds, greens, browns, Orange and yellows, too, God paints our surroundings With shades of every hue.
God is the Master Painter He paints in every hue He paints our surroundings When Autumn days are due.
Reds, greens, browns, Orange and yellows, too, God is the Master Painter He paints in every hue.
God is God! God is so good. He is always there for us and we can trust Him with all things. We can always rejoice even in the hard times.
We had a baptism service and dinner on the grounds today after the morning service. The weather here is great. I'm not sure how hot it got, but I'd guess close to 90 degrees. This is great October weather!
Of course, Merrill and I came home and took an afternoon nap. Completing our Day of Rest!
These guys were something else! My sister, Bonnie, and I were leaving our family reunion late Saturday afternoon and were driving back in the hills of KY. We were really kinda looking for the bear that have been released in that area when we ran across these gobblers. The turkeys weren't real happy with us and we thought they might try to flog us. They seemed aggressive and flared their tail feathers. Of course, they are vain, so maybe they were just showing us how neat their tail feathers were. Anyway, we took some pictures and left. They really are beautiful birds. I believe they are wild.
