The sky is a bit brighter today. So far no sun.
It rained all day yesterday, as it had for days. A soft and soundless rain.
I took some pics of my dining room set. It’s hard to get photos straight on because of the size of the room. But I got pics from different angles.
I have been acquiring the canvas paintings you see on the wall for months.
I found the middle floral painting at Tuesday Morning. At different times, I found the two barn paintings at Wayfair.
I was waiting to show the paintings until I either painted the table or got a new one. So they’ve been hanging on the wall since before my first eye surgery.
When Ivy came home with us, it made more sense to move the $10 table to the bedroom.
This way I have a place to put her and her food when my daughter and Andrew and I are eating in the dining space. If I can break her of jumping on it I won’t have to do that.
I have a rolled up stiff piece of paper and when she jumps up there, I smack it against the table (not her of course) and it scares her and she runs.
Hopefully over time this will break her of jumping on the table.
I am pleased with my decision on choosing this dining room set. The fact that it’s light in color helps to balance the dark living room furniture that is just down the wall from the dining space.
I’m still debating whether to paint the little yellow pantry cupboard blue. I just don’t know if I could get much done with Ivy, unless I shut her in the bedroom.
I sure don’t want an Ivy escapade where she jumps into paint!
Speaking of Ivy, I have decided on her middle name. It just popped into my head Friday night. She is Ivy Lou.
Here is a pic I took last night. She has her face down in the quilts or maybe the crack between the quilts and wall. I couldn’t tell which.
When I head back to the bedroom in the evening, Charlie climbs the doggy steps to lay on the end of the bed. And Ivy heads straight for this stack of quilts.
If you want to see a seasonal Halloween kitty cat, take a look at this photo I captured of her this morning.
I laugh at this photo every time I look at it. She looks like a spooked cat. I have no idea what she’s reacting to.
She goes from calm kitty cat to the other extreme in a heartbeat. She might be standing still and then arch her back and jump straight up. Such a funny bunny.
She has this habit where she jumps in the tub and chews at the little mechanism that you flip up to take a bath or flip it down to drain it.
I can’t figure out why she’d chew on that. It’s so hard I’m afraid she’ll harm her teeth.
This is her ever growing toy box.
Charlie with Ivy behind him playing with a toy. Right now Ivy is sleeping on the pet bed and Charlie has his head laid on it as he gazes out the front door.
Tomorrow morning I take Charlie for his grooming so I’m not sure what time I’ll get a post out. I might head to the grocery store after I drop him off.
