Weekend Reading 10.17.21

I’m leaving Italy tomorrow after a week of beautiful scenery and great weather and lucky me this was a great time to visit. There was some additional paperwork and tests needed to get here and fly home but it went smoothly since I budgeted extra time for that. I came with two of my best travel mates and we had a great time. Of course I’ll share my experience on the blog soon! Now it’s back to real life! I read it will rain this week so I’ll be catching up on work and making favorite homemade sou...

Meet This Rare Calico Male Cat

This cat is a rare calico male, with unusual markings. He is very friendly and loves to be petted. The male calico is a rare cat that has been spotted in the United States. It is believed to be a hybrid of a male and female cat. Have you ever seen a calico cat that is male? Probably unlikely, since only around one in every 3,000 calico cats is born male, giving a calico cat a chance of being a boy of less than 0.1 percent. Prepare for a bizarre calico coincidence! I just got an email from Shel...

Can Cats Eat Catnip? The Do’s and Don’ts of Catnip

Catnip is a perennial herb that produces a mild, narcotic effect on cats. It is typically used to make cats more playful and social with humans. However, there are some things you should know before giving your cat this plant. Cats are not the only animals that can ingest catnip, but they are the most common. Cats that consume catnip will often experience a euphoric reaction as their brain releases endorphins and dopamine. However, there is no known research on the long-term effects of catnip co...

Why Is My Cat Sneezing So Much?

Cats are natural born sneezers and it’s not always clear why they do it. A new study has found that cats may be trying to ward off predators and parasites by releasing a spray of aerosolized water from their mouths when they sneeze. The my indoor cat keeps sneezing is a question that is asked by many people. There are many reasons why your cat might be sneezing, but the most common reason is allergies. While cat sneezes are one of the sweetest sounds you’ll ever hear, they may also be concerni...

Just catching a moment...

I woke up. I looked. I wove into the edge, some old pink silk that was nearly to thin to stand on its own. I need time I said to myself. Then, the hearty laugh I needed so badly.

October Mood: Dark Walls

What is it about October that makes us all want to hang out in dark cozy spaces. I believe it’s the combination of Halloween and candlelight flickering against the walls that casts alluring shadows plus the cooler weather and daylight savings time that brings the night faster. What I notice with dark painted walls is that gold or brass glisten beautifully, wood textures come alive, and shadows are more dramatic. These examples will tempt you to paint your walls  a shade of deep green, blue, char...

Getting Back

  S o here I am we are, today... So many thoughts went through my mind as I stitched. Yet, I was not prepared to catch them. I long to really get through it, making a cloth with a true sense of how it happened, openly shared. Even if for my own curiosity, because it's as much of a mystery to me. It is quite a challenge to remember to let it flow. How interruptions are just as much a part of it. The forming. I am calling this The Uphill Climb. There is no figure yet. I am not sure it i...

Forever, it takes so long

  T his Cloth. It has the feel , the look, of those ancient cloths that caught my eye in the pages of books, so long ago. I can say it took forever to get here. Am I trying to go backwards?  No. I was, am, still going and I think that's just what might happen. Maybe a circle is closing.  The cloth is older, I am older and slower and it is all patched together, holding.  The face from inside.
