Awesome Tree & Crazy Cat

Old tree and old dog! This tree is at my friend's house. She actually built her house where her granparent's house used to be. This tree and her camellia bushes have been around for a while. I just love the way it's branches are! I haven't edited this photo at all so it it what it is! But isn't it a fabulous tree!

My cat is completely nuts. He was so crazy about this plastic bag. He wouldn't stop licking it. I don't know if it smelled like the cat my mom had when she was growing up or what particularly attracted him to this. It was in the vintage suitcase I found with memorabilia from my mom growing up and some old photos, which I've shared on my blog. I had to get out my camera and capture this insanity. Just wish he would have been able to tell us exactly what he was thinking.

Well, I have a bit of exciting news to share as well! I will have a lo pubbed in Ready, Set, Create April/May 2008 issue! I"m so excited. It is a paper lo that I made over the weekend at my recent crop. I have a few others I want to submit to another online e-zine so keep your fingers crossed. And if you get RSC, look for me!!!

Driving home from work tonight was so scary. I'm not normally scared behind the wheel, but when you are on pitch black country roads with no shoulder, and it is raining so hard you can't even see the end of the hood of your car, you don't have any room to make a mistake. I was going 25 on a 45mph road and the wind gusts were causing sheets to come across my windshield that would completely block my view of the road. I couldn't pull over as there was nowhere to pull over, and I couldn't stop of course. And once when a car was passing me in the other direction, I couldn't even see out the windshield so I just did my best to avoid them and hope I wasn't going to drive off the road. Of course, with crazy Southern storms, I get 1/2 way home, and suddenly it is not raining a drop any more!

I didn't get to scrapbook today, but I'm hoping to play with a new kit by Beth Rimmer at Digitals.

Woo-hoo! Congrats on getting published! That's awesome! Love the story about your cat...we have one that is obsessed with eating plastic bags and when he gets one he'll try and scarf it down as fast as he can before we can take it away. He really has a problem. :)

It is so incredibly refreshing to know that my house isn't the only one that has issues. There's something wrong with your cat!

Congrats!!!! That is so awesome.
Glad you made it home safe in the storm. That can be quite scary.
My mom had cats that loved to play in plastic bags, but I would like to know what the fasination was to have him/her licking it.

Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate it. Hope you have a great night.
