The Week Up to Now



Received a wonderful package from candyminx - collaged postcards which are all mini pieces of art. Each one as I look at it forms into meaning for me. What wonderful fun. I finally part with one of them for my sister, who is also gazing at them absorbing the meanings she finds in them. There was also a wonderful 'Zine that was art as well.

Weather hot and humid. She wants to drive deep into Louisiana. ("H" walked in just now to inform me that there was a hurricane there yesterday.) Anyway, I'm finding my fragile points in stamina as I want to stay up talking about everything into the wee hours of the night and do everything so she can enjoy the area. We would like to drive the coast all the way over.

She is getting my Maine Coon to eat - he's too skinny. It's a shy breed. The others run and gobble - he stands aloof waiting for the others to eat so he can eat undisturbed. The only thing is the greedy little creatures will follow him from bowl to bowl thinking the food is better in the other dishes. I told her he didn't like people food. I was wrong - he likes people food fed to him with people hands. Oh la, Prima Dona Cattuh.

We went to an Irish Pub and had the hugest best flavored hamburgers ever. Today will run some paintings out to a business owner who asked that I bring some buy. A sale? That would be encouraging. I'm hoping I can pick the best ones out and am feeling amatuerish for not having a stock of frames to pop them into before showing them.

And perhaps we will find a snack of Oyster Poboy. Southernstyle.

My friend used to have two Maine Coons, Mozart and Beethoven; they were the most gorgeous cats, so massive and placid, too!

I love that yours likes to be fed by human hands. My cat doesn't eat from my hands. Whenever I try, he rubs his head against whatever food I'm holding out for him and then walks away, as if to say, "I would eat it, but ... look, now it's got cat fur on it, I can't possibly."

I love getting packages in the mail. It's always a nice surprise!
Sounds like you're having a great time with your sister. Savour every minute of it....

Ummm, frames? I don't know that you need them. Sometimes they can almost distract the eye from the painting. Your work is magnificent and I am sure it will sell and sell fast!

Just have plain old heinz 57's here....they'll eat anything, edible or otherwise. Know a woman nearby with 2 Mine Coons. A black bloke near her got quite offended when he found out what they were called. Weird people around here...

Oyster Poboys...MMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMMmmm! With Hush Puppies?

Gardenia said...

4D - yes, I have to be careful here about talking about the big cat -

hush puppies a plenty!

Had a few "cat fur" on the food experiences - they can be so snooty can't they?

HI Gardenia! Glad the pacage made it safe and sound your way...

Also pleased to hear you are having such a fun visit with your sister and the burgers and pub are a fun way to hang out.

I love Maine Coon cats...one of my favourite types of cats...

The two cats here in Tronto are crazy...the old boy is still upset by the young kitten...he is growling but he is also coming around and watching her play...

Cats give so much entertainment!
