Where I stood..

With my feet under an irritated cat.   I’m trying to store up some warmth, I’ll be visiting the Plymouth Ice Festival later today.

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you’d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places you’ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and she’ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to “where I stood”, because right now I’m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.

Where I stood..

In front of Rhythm and Harmony, who don’t understand why they have the wrong food.   They like the crunchy stuff, and they are getting the wet stuff this morning.   Sorry, cats, but I haven’t made it to the grocery store.

Where I stood..

In the doorway with my cats. Deciding. Rhythm is not the decider.

For you Project Runway fans, Mark has a great concept for a new show. It involves the beautiful Heidi Klum coming up to cats in doorways and saying “Either you’re in, or you’re out!”

Ultimately, Rhythm decided she was out.

Summer heat

I saw a t-shirt once that explained how you can tell temperature by cats. The colder it is, the smaller and rounder the cat, as it gets warmer, the cats get longer. This is true, and it’s been hot. The fuzzy beasts that live in my house and so often try to look cute, pleading for attention, as of late don’t care. They have a “don’t touch me, I’m hot” look in their half closed eyes.

This is Rhythm on the back steps. She no longer cares about her belly hanging out, she just wants to shimmy out of the fur coat.

This is Harmony trying to expose as much of her body as possible to any breeze we might create as we walk by. Mark took these pictures. He also took one of me sprawled out, but this is my blog, and you’re not going to see that one.

Backs, cats, watercolors, and rubber stamps

Things are not good here at our household. Mark is in terrible pain, his back has been awful the past two days. He doesn’t sleep at all at night. He slept a little yesterday morning, and I think he is sleeping now, but he may just be laying quietly. He’s not a snorer (as opposed to me) so it’s hard to tell. I am hoping the massage Ann gave him yesterday will help work out the muscle issues. We need to get him in physical therapy soon.

Harmony the cat did not have a good night, either. She spent the night barfing, usually in our bed. If either of us was able to drift off, we woke to the acking sounds of one cat barfing. She was hungry this morning so I fed her. She’s now thrown that up, too. She seems fine, just wants to barf. Maybe she’s trying to keep her girlish figure. I’m keeping an eye on both of them, I would really like things to return to normal, with just occasional back pain and cat barfing.

I made a few more pentagram watercolors:

I’ve also carved a couple of rubber stamps:

Where I Stood…

I stood in front of Harmony, thinking about the day ahead and about yesterday. I’m thinking about the party I’m going to miss, but I’ll be up in the northeast suburbs of Detroit, looking at tube purchases with Mark, possibly stopping to see some friends, checking out the Gibraltar Trade Center, and maybe, if I’m lucky, quaffing a brew at Dragonmead. It’s kind of a small road trip, and I love road trips. I’m also thinking about the ten little watercolors I did yesterday, how happy I am with nine of them, and how I should just throw the tenth one out, or redo it. I’ll show them to you over the next few days. I’m thinking maybe I should spend more time on the art that I might show, the art that I’m better at making, and less time on the silly watercolors, but I enjoy them so much! Now I’m thinking it’s time to jump in the shower. See ya!
