I'll give you all my love

Monday, I see you've shown up again, but I really don't feel like dealing with you.  How is everyone today?  I've had a weekend full of every emotion imaginable.  I keep reminding myself to...
 Seeing my friends cat and the way they carry her was something that made me smile.
 These crazy patterns also kept my chin up.
I did my nails.
I had this weekend guest or should I say Peetee had his bitch over :)
 Peetee has good taste, no?
Last night Chris and I were waiting for his Mom and step Dad to come pick her up after their weekend trip to Washington.  They were late. The weather was horrible.  They had a car accident.  Their car was totaled but they are ok.  It was scary.  Chris spent most of the night at the hospital and his Mom is still there.

It may sound trite but Life is Precious.  Sometimes we need to be reminded of what really matters.  People matter so tell the ones you love how you feel~ often.

I am so glad Chris's family are okay, I can only imagine how shook up they must be.

Oh my goodness, near escapes are SO frightening, you do all that "what if?" stuff afterwards and it can make you go a little nuts...
I hope Chris' mum is OK and gets out of hospital soon.
It's not trite to remind us all how precious life is. It doesn't always feel that way when you are just grinding along in the usual routine, but of course it's true.

My cats would be beside themselves if I tried to carry them like that! Cute kitty, beautiful print on your dress, and Chris' mum and step-dad's dog is a beauty! Hope Peetee wasn't too jealous... xxxxx

Hope they are ok. It's true life is precious and we don't know what's around the corner.
My cat would shred that lovely bag if I put her in it, the stroppy tart.

Oh no, how scary for you both.Hoping that Chris's Mum is out of hospital soon. Life is precious, you never know when it may be extinguished.
On a lighter note I adore your fabulous pattern mixing, your nails, the loved up dogs and how gorgeous your hair is looking. If I knew our cats would tolerate being carried around like that I'd be tempted to take up knitting!
Yes! Later! It's a date! Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Love the cat sling, the kitty doesn't look to happy...meow!

Your kitchen is painted the color green I want to paint my kitchen! Great minds think alike.

Every emotion indeed - panic, relief and that strange emotion which washes over you when you realise how fragile we can be.
I do hope everything settles down and you can have a great de-stress over Christmas.
I love the pattern combinations, I reckon Zandra would be proud of you!
Hope Monday is being kind to you, boy do I wish you were painting my nails and telling me stories in that unique, honest and captivating style of yours.

Peetee's girl is gorgeous! Sorry to hear about Chris' folks, horrible scary stuff, I hate to drive in heavy rain or high winds, don't even like being a passenger. I agree with you - I tell my husband and kids I love them every day.

Oh Dear-So very sorry to hear of Chris' parents accent! With all the rain lately and the crazy traffic it can get scary out there on the roads. I'm just glad that they are OK! Cars can be replaced-thankfully it did it's job and kept them safe inside!

On a happier note you look super cute in your dress! And glad you had some doggie love to help with all the stress of worrying about your family. Keep calm and carry on with lots of doggie smoochies.;)
And that kitty in the purse makes me smile!:)
