My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

Meet Radar

This is Radar. He is the reason I raise money for animal rescue. He is 6 years old and only weighs a little over 4lbs. He is blind. When Buffalo Paws and Claws rescued him, he had a horrible eye infection, sores from being attacked by another animal. His nails were ingrown into his pads. He was so weak he would mess himself because he did not have the strength to get up. He had to have one eye amputated, it was such a mess!
Look at him now! With the love and care that Dawn and Chris at Buffalo Paws and Claws gave Radar he is a total lovebug who is gaining weight and loves catnip and cuddling! I have been given the priviledge of fostering him while he gets some dental work done and perhaps find a great home for him! But he won't be going anywhere if that doesn't happen- no worries!
He has been with me exactly a week and what a joy he is!

When you are going through a rough time, remember this-

Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at bay,
Hope is gentle cold breezes on a hot summer day.
Hope is to remain positive when the going gets tough,
Hope is seeking more when others think you've had enough.
Hope is dreaming of tomorrow,
Hope is singing under sorrow.
Hope is sparkles when tears are in our eyes,
Hope is a beautiful thing and a beautiful thing never dies.
Hope is light as a feather,
Hope keeps us all together.
Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
Hope is the last thing ever lost.

Project Piles

 Last weekend my knitting friends came over and we continued working on our "Crayon Box" sweaters. I now have one sleeve done. Almost  everyone else has both sleeves and part of the body done! I made Mexican snacks in honor of Cinco de Mayo even thought we were a week behind! Ortega has a great black bean soup mix now- serve it with a dollop of sour cream and a little cheddar- mmmmmmm!
 The carry bags for Whiskerfest are making progress- this will be my afternoon project today after my first foster baby comes at noon. I am going to foster a little kitty named Radar- will post pictures when I have some. He has had a rough life and once again Buffalo Paws and Claws rescued him and he is now doing great!
Louise has not made an appearance for a while so thought I'd show her "helping" again.
