Toesies Tuesday

Pink Jelly Bean Toes!!!

Just wanted to say thank you all for leaving such kind notes about Q. We all have the experience of saying goodbye to someone dear to us and the sympathy you shared with me gave me great comfort.

And thankfully, we all have found it in our hearts to love again. 9 and Chani were the best balm after losing Q. I don't know what I would have done without them or you. Thank you!!!

February 21st, 2010, tomorrow will be the first anniversary of Q's crossing the Rainbow Bridge.

I was looking through some old photos and found a set taken right before I took Q to the vet's for the last time. I guess I never really noticed how old he had become when I was seeing him every day. Looking at these photos made me realize how far past his prime he had gone.

It was the right decision to have him helped across the Bridge, but of course, it still hurts. I miss you, darling Q-chan. Love always.

Condo developments

The kitchen is being slowly demolished...

Debris from the kitchen.
Hehe... I can't tell you how satisfying it is to take a hammer to counter tops in order to remove them.

Evening nap on Mom's robe = sweet photo op for Mom

Have a great Valentine's weekend everyone. We're Mom's Valentine this year and she said she wouldn't have it any other way.

9 and Chani by the morning light

Backlit for mood...

It was a lazy morning for me. I like lazy mornings...

Mancat Monday

My handsome boy by the light of the morning sun. Taken with my phone... Love the soft fuzziness of the diffuse light.

He looks so soulful and thoughtful here, but I bet he's just trying to figure out ways to get more food and treats.

Chani close up

Mom discovered the zoom feature on her camera phone. Now, she is constantly trying to get me to look at her so she can take zoomed in pictures of me. I shall only cooperate a bit. I am a cat after all...

More about the Condo

9: Mom begged and pleaded with me to allow her to hijack the blog again for this condo thing. Chani and I are not sure what it is yet, but it seems to be taking Mom, Grandma and Grandpa's attention away from us... I can be gracious enough to let Mom do this, but she couldn't even be bothered to take a picture of me with the regular flashy box thing. She used her camera phone. All I know is that she better make it up to us soon!
Hi All. Here are some pictures of the pre-painted/pre-remodeled condo. And yes, I am making things up to 9 and Chani with extra cuddles and hugs :)


The guest bedroom and the only paint where I put it on the wall and said: that's the right color! The orange, not the green...

The paint test in the guest bathroom continues. I am going to go with the light turquoise blue right below the whitish color.

The kitchen before it gets new appliances and new cabinets and basically rearranged.

Another view. The angled wall on the left is a pantry that is kind of inconvenient and oddly shaped. I hope to change that out. Plus, the sink and the stove are opposing each other. Talk about bad Feng Shui! That will get rearranged too, I hope.

Finally, my bedroom. The yellow on the wall is pretty hideous but not as hideous as the above picture makes it seem. I'm going to be putting a nice purple on the walls. I love purple! I was going to go dark, but decided to go with a lighter more grey purple.

That is the remnant of the wallpaper that was originally there. It's applied in a rip and apply method that makes it hard to take off. Just as an fyi, the wallpaper was fully covering the walls before I got in there. This picture was taken about 3 days after Mom and I started ripping the paper off. It's taking a while because it covered two full walls.

And there you go!

I promise not to hijack this blog for my condo more than once a week. So, I'll be sure to post more 9 and Chani pics soon :)
