Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

My after-work activities...

It was a slow, relaxed day at the deli. A nice change from the hectic Christmas experience.
After work I bought the ingredients to make my infamous Chicken Mexican hotdish (casserole?).
But before any cooking could take place I must feed the cats.
Do you see how many toes this kitten has? At least six that I can count. We have a long history of extra-toed cats around here.
These tracks were made by our resident crows. They show up to finish off whatever the cats don't eat.

And here are two of those six-toed kittens chowing down on leftovers from the deli.

This is the closest I came to a New Year's resolution. I wrote this list a couple of weeks ago. Trying to prioritize...again! You may have to click on the picture to be able to read it.
(Open Door Church is where my son, Jordan, is the worship director. I love watching them live on my laptop!)
Two more resolutions: drink more water and take my multi-vitamins!
I've been Googling information on reindeer. Or is it reindeers? They spelled it both ways. I have a fascination with these critters and the people who raise them. This led to a search for images and info on Tomtens/Gnomes. I found a lot of fun images.
I especially loved this artist's frayed rendition of a Tomten.
He was on Pinterest!

Hope all is well in your world. I'm off to do some reading.
Shalom! :)


  1. I love finding tracks in the snow. Six-toed cats? Cool!
    Good list!
    The gnome is very cute. Will you be drawing him?
    Happy, JOY-full New Year!

    1. I really would love to try drawing/painting some gnomes and reindeer! Good to hear from you, Jody! :)

  2. I like Tomten! Cute! You are a good "doer" when you treat the cats! Happy New Year, sweet friend!

    1. I thought of you when I was enjoying all the Tomten eye candy! :) Happy New Year, Pom!

  3. I like your shaggy little gnome. Seeing him made me want to get out the Gnomes book that my little grandson and I were reading and enjoying the illustrations before Christmas but now I'm afraid his new toys have captured his interest more. Oh well, we'll get back to it I'm sure.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
