I've mentioned that Chani is a bit cunning. She will get attacked by 9, see 9 get chastised and then try to entice him into attacking her again so he can get in trouble again.
Yesterday, Chani saw 9 getting ready to climb up onto the green tower over which I had draped the green fort roof blanket. Using her superior speed and agility, she made it to the top of the tower first. And defended her tower...
This didn't stop 9 from trying to get up to the top and such, but he did get pulled off of the tower and placed on the tan tower. Sometimes I feel bad that I encourage Chani to "get" 9 and make 9 give up what he wants. Still, he does tend to steal Chani's toys and try to sleep on her tower. Someday, I might be able to resolve this crisis of conscience.
Below is a piece of artwork that I'm working on. It needs some color for the background. It all started when Emma and I were at a Japanese bookstore and we saw a book about Big Eye Art. Both of us are artists, so we looked through and I thought, "Why am I not doing this?" So, I sketched out a kitty based on Chani, scanned her into Photoshop, lightened up the sketch a bit and reprinted her on watercolor paper. Not the best choice as I was going to use marker to ink and color her and H2O paper tends to bleed. Still, this was just practice and I can reprint and re-ink and color her again.
Happy Sunday all!
