its been awhile...

the hydrangea are blooming and we did get a spot of rain yesterday...
just about enough to wet the leaves and that's all...

Saturday was a very bad day...
and the rest of the week wasn't much better...

but I am doing better now...
and we were able to get out of here for a few hours yesterday morning...

the storms went through, all around us...
and each one just missing us by a mile or two...
but we have another chance today and the rest of the week could produce 5" or more...
not really needing that much at once, but 2-3 wouldn't hurt a thing...

I was busy, too, doing things that must be done...
photos shoots of babies and adoptions to complete..
I was so happy with all of them, but this one is extra special...
a couple, who cannot have children, took all three of these...
the gray one she named Sasha, the orange tabby is now Oliver...
and mama Annie got to go with her babies...
at least 2 of her 5...
and they were so happy there, right out of the pet taxi...
I knew this was the best thing for Annie...
she was one of my cuddlers, and the sweetest thing...
but we are getting too many and she would have been lost without her babies here...
she is such a good mom...
and I can go see them anytime I want to...
and Brandi- her new mom, friended me on facebook, so I get to see them as the babies grow...

but we had one adoption fall through...
and my son, Doug, wanted this one...
so guess who is going to be my furever grandbaby?
part of Annie will forever be in our family...
and that's a great thing...

we lost one of the new babies last night around midnight, Craig buried him this morning...
not sure what was wrong, just a failure to thrive...
the rest are fat and sassy...
I tried bottle feeding and all that, but nothing helped...
he crashed fast and hard last night and died in my hands...
out on the deck, under the stars...
and its ok, because God takes back the ones who can't make it in this world...

and Clyde's adoption failed...
the girls room mate went to the landlord and complained...
so the landlord said he had to go...
the girl was heart broken- she had already bonded...
she brought him back to Craig when he got off of work last night...
took him 45 minutes to get to the truck...
;0)
we have 2 girls who work at Walmart with him, room mates even...
who want to adopt him and his sister...
so when they go there, if they pass the screening...
(and I am so hoping for this)
they will go together...
both were lost without the other one and the reunion last night as hilarious...
they romped and played...
totally exhausted, they curled up together for the night...
so, they will be leaving in a few days...
letting him settle down from the past days' trauma of being moved around...
and we should be done with adoptions for about 2 months, when these other 5...
(mama has a home waiting)
and the 4 babies will be leaving us...
THEN-
the kitchen make over will continue...
we so need to get this done before fall...
;0)

Busy! Baby kittie wise! Even if you are not feeling well, all that, still goes on.

Dare I say, you try to do too much?

Nope, I dare NOT say that! Or I might just incur your wrath! -giggggles-

No, you know I mean well.

All your photos are sooooooooooo goooood! You have 'an eye' for photography.

hugs,
Tessa

Hi Tete, Glad you are doing better now. Love your hydrangea pics. Mine are growing good and very green but no blooms yet.
The kitties are so cute and so glad they are going off to good homes.
We are heading into more rain this week and flooding again they say. Just what we need!!!!
Have a blessed week. Take good care~~
