Over the last few months my precious Cat has been slowly declining in health. This weekend I had to say good bye for know. I found a verse in scripture that helped me have hope that one day I will be able to hold my fur babies who have left this life for the next. Interesting that this verse was in my normal reading last week. God is a very present help in trouble.
“As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[c]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”
My spirit and creative energies have been having a hard time functioning due to this happening over the last few months. I see a pillow of my buddy in the future. I already created my Cat Purse with Toby as the feature. Or maybe I will try my hand at a sculptured cat. Hmmmmmm
Good bye for know my friend and companion. Have a great time playing with Teak, Shadow, Puddles, Jewel, Jasmine, Jeremiah and Taffy.
These fur babies give us such joy that I know that there are more animals that we will adopt to share our lives. As hard as it is to say goodbye I want to experience sharing my life with more fur babies. It may be kind of hard on animals sharing our traveling gypsy life style but I know that many would be happy to have a human love them.

Decided I will try to do a little needle punching today between gate openings. This should be interesting as I opened the gate probably close to 150 times yesterday during my 12 hour shift. Was a very busy day. But I really want to do some art work too. This is a new witch boot design that I have had drawn up for a while. It is a skeleton dancing. A cute design.
This summer I hope to create several witches boot patterns.
Also want to make my Jack O Lantern's into a pattern with all four styles.
We hope to take the summer off from working.
So I should be able to create some of my creations into pattern form.

We now have one week of our new gate keeper job under our belt. It has been a week of getting used to this 24 hour a day job. David has had the hardest time as he has the night shift. The ringer that is supposed to go off when a vehicle approaches the gate was not working all the time. This made it hard because we had to watch the road all the time. Jamie came and fixed the bell yesterday. Yippy!!!!!
This is very interesting learning about the process of fracing and watching all this equipment come in. Yesterday I got bit a several times and noticed that there is a fire ant hill just outside the gate in the grass. Fire ants are something new to us. Now that I know it is there I can avoid it.
The catering company has come in the last few days and brought us food too. Today a smoker came through the gate the guys get barbecue for lunch. That means we do too or I hope so. He said he would try to bring us some out. I do not eat meat very often but sometimes I will eat barbecue.
