"Holey" Sunday

Lots & lots of holes Sunday; holy "Holey" Sunday

Every one of those nails holes on all the moldings and casings had to be filled before the painting can begin. One more step has been done my poor little fingers....

The wool stash is now starting to move to it's new home. This is a great chance to wash down the shelving and re-organize our wool.

Rescue Animals - Just Part of My Life Now

I was just reading Rugs and Pugs blog and her passion to save rescue animals and I thought I'd share a few furry friends that I helped save recently.  These 4 kittens came to my house one friday night we were unsure if they would live.  Their mother had not returned for over a day and their fate was sure to be starvation.

I agreed NOT wholeheartedly to take the kittens into my new rug hooking kitchen and see if they could eat enough to survive, we mixed up a homemade milk :corn syrup, eggs, water (and vitamins) as the vet was closed for the night. 

We started feeding them every 4 hours and sure enough in the morning they were still alive.  They grew every day and ate and ate special vet  "mother's milk"  This is one of the reasons I have been busy and not posting alot I've been mother to 4 kittens with a 4-6 hour feeding schedule.  LOL

Ready for adoption now, stronger than ever.

Not Something you see Every Day

I awoke to the chatter of people and addition noise on Saturday morning past.   It was a Cross Border Challenge Race running by my house.  Now there is something you don't see everyday!  I sat on the front step and watch all those very eneretic people speeding by my house had to been a hundred or them or more.  After the runner and walkers went by there was a Bag Piper Band lining up with the Finish Line in view of my walkway. 

So after all the excitement I went back to the couch and enjoyed the morning news.  Maybe someday I'll do the run,  ummm not.
