New Toy

I downloaded the new Picasa and I can now make collages!
So I decided to make one of all my favorite kitty pics.

New purchase

I was out antiquing the other day and came across this antique tool box. I had to have it, it is the green in my kitchen and it was a steal. Not sure yet how I'm going to decorate it for everyday, but for Christmas I'm going to use greens and varying size pillar candles. I think I'll glitter the candles!!

New Job!

So a few weeks ago my BFF was talking about how swamped she has been with her business, I think I've mentioned she is a photography, and she was thinking about hiring someone. I told her to hire me. Well now I'm her "studio manager". It's not a full time job, I still can do my sewing projects and work at the fabric store whenever they need me.
It's been so much fun! We do our work, chit-chat and cook lunch. Some nights my husband comes over after work and we have dinner.
This is a picture she took of me that she posted on her blog( after I started.

Sunday Dinner~Chicken!!

Last week my local grocery store had whole chickens on sale for .99/pound! Being inspired by Martha's show about cutting up a whole chicken and Louis from Gestures cutting up his chicken, I bought 3! So this Sunday I decided to just do a basic roasted chicken. I like to use butter, salt, pepper, garlic and herb de provance on the outside. I stuffed it with lemons, onions, and garlic.
So next Sunday I will make an attempt to cut up a whole chicken. With the amount of cooking I've done this is one thing I've never tried!

We had an exciting Wednesday night. One of the little kitties knocked a plate onto the floor which schattered into a million pieces and in turn scared the bejesus out of Oliver and he went running like a bat out of hell. About 10 minutes after cleaning up the mess I notice he was limping and kind of dragging his leg. So thinking he broke his leg, into action Mark and I went. I put him in the carrier and Mark called the Vet. Well, I'm glad to say he didn't break his leg:). He did tear some ligaments and tweaked his knee cap, who know cats had knee caps.
