Our Last Day in the Country.....


Today was the last full day in the country for the month of May

Last night I forgot to tell what we named the second kitty!

Samantha and Tabitha.
Just like in Bewitched!
Louis Dean had the honor of choosing the names.
When we leave here tomorrow it will be with THREE kittens!

My son, Benjamin, decided he wanted this black male!
I'm telling you, he is going to be one pampered cat!
I can't wait to share photos of all the fun things he has already ordered.
All four kitties are going to have such a wonderful life!

I spent the entire day painting and resting and doing what I wanted.
The only meal I cooked was breakfast for lunch - sausage, biscuits and fried country eggs.
We are going to miss the country eggs!

I based in this fun painting of rain boots, sunflowers and cotton.
Leaving all the wet paintings here and will finish them when we come back next month.

This little bee will go to Summer when it's finished.
Since I work only in oils and since it takes them a good while to dry,
it's easier to pick up where I left off when I come back.
Several paintings have been messed up and one damaged by trying to take wet canvases home.

Louis Dean took a walk down to pick up Ben's kitty and I just love seeing our honey bees out there amongst the flowers doing what bees do to make honey!

Dean's garden is looking good!
We still don't have one thing planted in ours but we will.
Once the fence is up, we will be on our way!
It will be fun to see how our home garden has done while we have been away.
I know it's had plenty of water from all the rain we've had both down here and up in the DFW area.

I close tonight's journal entry with an update on my friend, Dee....
I am so thankful for the prayers prayed for her.
Life can change in the blink of an eye and it has changed for my friend.
I continue to pray for her and her family.

Blogger has a new updated way to post and I clicked on it yesterday not realizing I would need to figure out how to do things in order to post tonight.
Bear with me while I learn......
Anyone else using the new version?

Dean and Sherry have lots of relatives taking kitties. That is awesome!
I hope Dee's changes won't be bad, but I don't have such a good feeling about this. I'll keep praying. We are always just a heartbeat away from huge changes we have no control over.
Hope all the kitties love their new lives!!

Susie said...

Linda, I hope your trip home is safe. There will be kitty cat adventures when you get home. LOL Praying for Dee and the family. please take care of each other there. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Stacy said...

The kitties are darling! I especially like Samantha's coloring. I think they will all be spoiled kitties. I hope we will be seeing more of them.

The kittens are so sweet! I know you will be happy to have them and they will all be spoiled rotten!

Vee said...

Ongoing prayers for your friend Dee. That was a cryptic update.

Now I'm wondering what Benjamin will name his kitten...

Shirley said...

I know you will have fun with all of the kittens. Prayers give us strength and help us through a lot of trying times. I know from personal experience that God has been with me to help me. I would love to be in the country, but I know at my age it isn't possible. Enjoy all the time that you can spend there. Take care my friend. Hugs and Prayers Shirley

so glad Ben took the black cat, they are like black dogs, not wanted by most people. i do not like the new blogger, but am using it because it will change soon and we can go back but i tried going back and it doesn't work well. finding things is the biggest problem and i did not lke when they changed last time but after using it liked it better. hope that happens this time. shoot me a question if you have a problem, i have been using it for a couple of weeks. took me forever to find where to click to create a new post. why they put it in the lower right corner i have no idea. they have made this to work with phones and tablets. i am wonder how many people blog from phones.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

No I haven't tried the new blogger. Seems they make enough changes without trying that out. I find it hard to keep up with new technology. I'm like the way I've been doing things so will continue the old way until they make it impossible. Glad another cat has found a good home. They will have good homes with you and your family, of that I have no doubt . Hope you have a good trip home and know what you mean about trying to travel with wet paint, best to leave until you come back.

I dislike the new Blogger with a passion.
I had to have Sandra help me get back to the old Blogger.
I couldn't find anything and couldn't post anything to my old account.
My feelings..if it ain't broke...don't fix it !!!
your kitties are so cute..great photos.

I love the picture of your kitty, it looks like she is wearing a big ruffled hat!! Maybe she is going off to church! It is too bad you cannot stay at the ranch longer, but I guess that makes it much more special when you do go there. You are both City Mouse AND Country Mouse! Your bee is exquisite. If I saw it in a store, I would buy it right away.

Sue said...

The kittens are so precious, we just acquired two new ones.
Your paintings are lovely, I have always wanted to be able to paint, but sadly this gift was not given to me.
Prayers for your friend Dee, I am putting off as long as I possibly can the new blogger, goodness knows I have such a hard time with the old one.
Have a safe trip home.

LC said...

Excellent choice on kitty names! Best wishes on new posting procedures. Ugh! I am easily frustrated with technology updates.

Deanna Rabe said...

The new way showed up for me a week or so ago. I had to figure out how to enlarge my photos!

Sweet that all those kitties will be in loving homes!

Prayers continuing for Dee.

Havn'et tried the new Blogger yet - is it easy to use? Cheers

We are: Clamco said...

What beautiful little kitties!!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

What perfect names for your two kittens! That little black kitten reminded me of my own cat who passed away several years ago, her name was Sambuca. Do you know the name of Ben's kitten yet?

I love your paintings. They are really amazing!
I'm using the new version of Blogger too and it did take me a while to get used to all of the new controls. However, it's actually a lot easier to use as you can edit posts more easily on your mobile. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it!
