Cats and Taxes

It is truly no wonder I have a hard time getting taxes done.  With all the extra help and fun antics of the four furries we live with.

This big boy "Tiggins" takes up my whole working space when he decides "scrubbings" are in order.

And just look how hard it would be to ignore the cutness going on in this mail bag--"lupin" you are a goof!

I must persevere, my accountant has said she will break my knees if I delay. But wait just two more photos of the other "kits"
This would be our Jaq cat who just got her hairs cut.  She is older and long haired, so twice a year we get her shaved to help with her grooming processes. She really looks like an Alpaca baby and loves her new "do".
This is our newest "kit" on the block,, Sayge.  She spends a lot of time in the deluxe cat tree we built.  She is really too cute for words and I find myself many times in a day reaching for the camera.  Very photogenic.

OK,, taxes here I come--Oh no,, Tiggins is asleep in the middle of my desk again, but I did just manage to get my calculator out from under his rather large and furry belly.  Oh My. The trials of a work at home, entrepreneur. 

I do need to mention that we are currently experiencing a huge wind/rain storm with stuff coming down sideways in all directions. WOW

Clay Garden Orb

I have been having such fun.  Last fall I decided that I was deprived by living at the Oregon Coast away from continuing education in my chosen fields of interest.  Such as Mosaic, Quilting Arts, Ceramic etc.  I was also feeling the need to get some fresh information to share with my clay students that I teach on Tues and Thurs. So I signed up to study with a wonderful woman who has been doing clay for 40 years.  You would think that would make her very old, but she started young and has such a sweet style of teaching and sharing that my creative imagination with clay has blossomed.  Leslie Green, you are a gift. Have learned much each Monday for the 2 hour class.  I drive with with my good friend Dorian to Philomath, just west, over the coast range, an hour and a half a way.  Totally worth the trip each week. The drive is beautiful with lots of wildlife and varied vegetation.

This sphere was finished this weekend and I am really pleased with the way it turned out.  It is 31" around the middle, about the size of a basketball.  It was a very fun process to learn and I am hoping to make many more.  This one was "stamped" with a broken sunflower tile, giving it a mosaic look.  I look forward to Monday's now ;-))
