hello world.... i'm matilda!
came home the other night to this! hubby is so sly. matilda was dumped by some people in the parking lot of his work [i guess people think that since it's an animal facility they will take care of any animal that gets dumped - hello? SPCA... really they won't even make you sign anything if you don't want to!]. a co-worker found her at 5am and coaxed her out [i guess there was a whole litter, but all the other kittens were taken by the emergency clinic across the way]. with-in a couple of hours she was purring and rubbing into everyone.
instead of calling me [because he knew i'd say: we don't need another cat] he brought her home. and of course i can't kick her out now.... she's a sweetie... and it's so funny to have a loppy kitten in the house again. running around falling off of tables and then curling up under our chins to sleep and purr. she's still a bit hissy around the dogs, but i think she's going to fit in just fine..... wanna know the weird part?? hubby and i were talking about should we or should we not get another kitty... and i said... i'd love a gray kitty. he said you can't pick a cat based on looks - i said - i know but i'm just saying i think all gray kitties are so cute.... um.... i guess someone heard me??
today was insane... packed 3 suitcases full of artwork... packed my own suitcase full of clothes... did the dishes.... crossed T's and dotted I's.... how come when you are going somewhere - even if it's just for a few days - a whole series of hoops must be jumped?
i leave pretty early tomorrow... hopefully i will get me and all my bags to where they are supposed to be in one piece. i don't even want to talk about the fed-ex nightmare that busted through my box and broke several frames. apparently only one piece is minorly damaged. i hope that's true. i usually really love fed-ex - and i have to admit when i called to file a claim the woman sounded genuinely sorry. that was sweet. i saw a picture, though, and it's like they rammed a midieval sword through the top 1/3 and then taped over it like nothing happened. luckily the incredilby nice folks at the venue fixed 2 of the frames and bought new plexi for me... huge relief!
anyway.... if you are in the Oceanside/San Diego area my show with Wendy Kawabata will open on Monday the 13th [yes weird] from 11-2 pm at the Kruglak gallery at Mira Costa College . we have to give a talk too [gulp]. come by if you are so inclined! [or if you want to hear me babbly the art talk about what i make and why]
i'm excited because my mom, dad and grandma are coming! woo hoo....
i have some other news to share, but it will have to wait until i get back....
don't forget shari has posted on ship of fools .... i have to get over there and comment....
will leave you with a pic of tired tired kitty
do you see her cute pink toes??? pppppuuuuurrrrrr
