This past week was pretty busy, but very rewarding.
Top of the list:
I got to have my friends 1 1/2 year old little girl, Charlotte, stay with me….cause my friends were at the hospital having twins! Mama, Daddy and twins are doing well. I loved having little Charlotte stay with me…Jules and Jane doted, fought and loved on Charlotte. So cute.
Here she is in all her little cuteness.
Charlotte did so well in a new place, away from her Mama and Daddy. Miss her little face already.
While Charlotte was with us, I took on a couple of canning projects.
Recipes to come – but we did dilly beans, strawberry jam and crushed tomatoes.
And then this happened…..
We introduced a new kitty into our family. Our last kitty, Lillian, died about a year ago and the girls have been pretty persistent in their requests. We picked this kitty up from the Yellowstone Animal Shelter, where she was being held as a stray. I do not know much about her history, only that she is 3 and was living under a front deck for about a month before Animal Control was called to pick her up.
We named her Harriet the Cat, or HarryCat. She has come when called a few times….but it seems to be more of a coincidence. We are working on it. HarryCat is so docile and sweet. She has been very accepting of the kids and dogs.
Crap! I almost forgot. Dave and I had our Birthdays as well. Obviously, there was not a lot of time for birthday exploits….but we will celebrate at a later date. 😉
