We went for our first vet visit today. She is a girl and she's only 5-6 weeks old.
Sweet, sweet baby!
Now moving on from kitten talk...I'm almost finished in my dining room. Just waiting on slip covers. :)

We went to the mall to return the senior prom tuxedo and a lady had just found this little baby in the bushes. We were more than happy to bring her home. She's so tiny she fits in my hand. She has already made herself at home and the dogs love her.

Let me show you how this came together.
I purchased the comforter, shams, and toss pillow. The toss pillow is really a cranberry red that is the same color in the flowers. It looks wrong in the picture today. The comforter is folded at the bottom of my matelasse bedspread. I am in love with these colors!
I needed different curtains, of some sort, and wasn't sure what to get. Decided to get simple summery sheers that tie at the top. I already had the print that is above the bed hiding in a closet. The plates on the wall belonged to Mama Rose.
The view out to the woods. I love it when the window is open and the sheers blow gently.
I'm calling this my summer set and in the fall we'll bring the red toile back out. I'm so thrilled with how this all came together and I thank you for encouraging me to go for it!
The other thing I've been very busy with is my career. I'm going back to work in the fall and couldn't be more excited! So can we say Woo Hoo!! I teach students with learning differences. In my new position, my day will be 1/2 time in 4th grade and 1/2 time in 5th grade. The people I'm going to work with seem amazing. I can't wait!!

I like things orderly, timely, etc.
In fact, when things aren't like that my mind is boggled!!
So this week I've spent time cleaning, planting, paying bills, following up on health insurance stuff, you know....keeping life in order.
I'll be posting that project on Thursday when I participate in the Show Off Your Bedroom party that Debra from Bungalow is having.
Please join with us.
Have a wonderful springy weekend!!

He has auditioned and been accepted as a Classical Performance/Music Education student.
Where do kids get the nerve to move from Oklahoma to Chicago?
We are very proud but sure will miss hearing all the singing he does around here.
More to come about this subject later. :)

Here's the description from the book cover:
The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder is the sweet, sexy, funny journey of Calla Lily's life set in Wells' expanding fictional Louisiana landscape. In the small river town of La Luna, Calla bursts into being, a force of nature as luminous as the flower she is named for. Under the loving light of the Moon Lady, the feminine force that will guide and protect her throughout her life, Calla enjoys a blissful childhood - until it is cut short. Her mother, M'Dear, a woman of rapture and love, teaches Calla compassion, and passes on to her the art of healing through the humble womanly art of "fixing hair". At her mother's side, Calla further learns that this same tough of hands on the human body can quiet her own soul. It is also on the banks of the La Luna River that Calla encounters sweet, succulent first love, with a boy named Tuck.
But when Tuck leaves Calla with a broken heart, she transforms hurt into inspiration and heads for the wild and colorful city of New Orleans to study at L'Academie de Beaute de Crescent. In that extravagant big river city, she finds her destiny - and comes to understand fully the power of her "healing hands" to change lives and soothe pain, including her own. When Tuck reappears years later, he presents her with an offer that is colored by the memories of lost love. But who knows how Calla Lily, a "daughter of the Moon Lady," will respond?
Don't let this great story pass you by! I hope there is a sequel.

It was actually very warm here so I worked out in the yard every day.
Put out 20 bags of mulch.
Watched the hostas pop out a little more by the day.
Watched the redbuds begin to bloom.
We had a new fence put in. Katie and I had to survey the progress daily.
They actually built the fence one board at a time - which amazed me! It's beautiful.
What did you do this week? I hope it was a great one.
