Raising Tiny Kittens

The reason I haven't blogged lately is that I'm raising kittens. My son who works at a Home Depot found these two babies in a pot in the garden department. He had noticed the mama once in a while but the kittens really couldn't move around. Being the caring softy my son brought them home before another employee called the SPCA. I have no idea how old they are maybe 4 weeks and I have no idea if they are boys or girls but I am in love with them. I'm feeding them milk replacement and have them in a box but take them out to play after every feeding. Soon after that they have no trouble going to sleep. One of my chihuahuas is acting like a mommy. She runs to the box every time she hears them cry, and then comes to get me wherever I am. It's so funny to watch. The first twenty four hours that the kittens were home, my Chi didn't sleep a wink because she sat by the box the whole night and didn't let me sleep because she kept wanting me to go to them every 5 to 10 minutes. My other Chi couldn't care less she just stays away from them.I'm feeding them every 4 hours and watch them while they play. I forgot how much time animals babies require. I'm loving it though. Anyway, their names are Oreo and Cotton.

How Cute Is This

When I went to Barnes & Noble this past weekend I went into the kids section to find some books for my niece’s daughterbakeset2. It was actually the first time that I went into that section. I had a great time seeing all the books that are available to kids now. I saw this little bake set and just couldn’t pass it up. The muffin pan is pretty small and just so cute. It’s got lot’s of cup cake papers and frosting tips and recipes. I was lucky to be there when I was because this bake set was the last one left, so I guess I was meant to buy it. HA!

Another thing I found was a chef set, which I’m pretty sure goes with the bake set. It’s unbelievably cute, especially the chef’s hat. It’s got a small wooden spoon and rolling pin. I think I’m saving this for my first granddaughter. Anytime I find something cute I’ll buy it and put it in a special box. Am I crazy or what ?! If any of you do any baking and have little granddaughters you might think of going to Barnes & Noble and buying either one of these sets. They also make a perfect cupcake party gift.

My hubby and son have been working on an old El Camino and hubby asked if I wanted to go to Hancock’s to look for some Nufoam (sp?) for the car seats. I was actually shocked to hear my hubby say he wanted to go to Hancock. I didn’t hesitate to say yes since I do like Hancock and I hadn’t gone to that store in a long, long time. The first thing I saw when we walked in was this little sewing machine by Janome. It weighs 5 pounds and is of good quality. I paid $50 bucks for it. It’s perfect for little hands. The only thing it doesn’t have is a handle, which it could use. Not that it’s heavy or anything, but you get a more secure hold on it with a handle. The book next to it is a medium size paper back book and the machine isn’t much bigger. Way cute!


Wasn’t Expecting This!


Ever since my son and hubby have been working on an old El Camino I have found all these car parts in my house. UPS keeps bringing boxes of different car parts. One time I opened the entry closet and I was greeted with a big long box which had door panels. The latest surprise was me walking in the house and stepping into the dining room and seeing this car seat on the table along with tools, wires and other car stuff. Hubby and son thought it very convenient to work on the car seats on the table. No oil stains anywhere thank goodness. I have warned them not to do this again or else. I know they’re excited but, come on. The thing is they don’t see anything wrong with it. I’m sure I’ll have more surprises before this El Camino is fully restored. MEN!
