All is quiet...

We live a quiet and boring life here. While my head is a whirl with a million crazy disparate thoughts nothing stays put long enough for me to catch it.

So just to have something new - a little artsy rendering of what life is like in la casa di persone noiose

Deemed perfect

If you visited Sunday's Today's Conversation, then you know my husband did not give me a 25th Wedding Anniversary present.  That was not unexpected because we have never celebrated or acknowledged our wedding anniversaries.

I did get a present for my husband. I found the perfect gift last Fall and just recently bought it and had it framed.

The only back story you need to know for this is that I never aspired to be married and that by the time I was in my 30's I said "All I want is to come home at night and have someone put their arms around me, and lie to me and tell me that everything is going to be all right".

I left it on the dining table for my husband to find when he got up in the morning. When I got up (hours later) I asked him if he liked it and he said "I haven't been able to work all morning because I can't get it out of my head. It is perfect."

And for us, it is.

Yeah, I know - boring, or in other words, kitty pics!

I found this satin bow on a stretchy satin ribbon and I had this insane idea to put it on the kitties. They actually didn't mind but getting them to look up at me while I took a photo was challenging.

Frankie wouldn't look up so I lay down.  Photo came out well so she didn't need much editing at all...

But BB was another story - the white bow against his white chest fur - not so great. Holding the camera with one hand and dangling the camera strap to get his attention with the other got me a wobbly photo. So with lots of editing, here is the BB-boy...
