distractions, distractions

My roommate and I are temporary cat ladies at the moment. We took in 4 feral kittens a couple weeks back and have been busy socializing them ever since. As a seasoned dog person, this has been quite the challenge at times: tiny scratch lines on my hands, kitty litter stones scattered about under foot, and the never ending task of retrieving these acrobatic fur balls from hard to reach places. Fortunately, as the days pass and they slowly outgrow all of their favourite hiding places, they’ve starting seeing us as food magicians and petting machines as opposed to giant kitty nappers. And now that I’ve started taking a liking to these little guys (so cute when they purr and stretch in your arms), they’ll soon be adopted into new loving homes, possibly by the end of this week. Oh, how I’ll miss them.

Grade fours, standing at the edge of their paper collaged pond. There’s a swamp monster sporting sunglasses somewhere in there. 😎 October’s been flying by and so has my IBBY residency at the @torontolibrary .

Together, we cut and pasted and created these technicolor collaged landscapes.✂️🌈☀️ I was searching through boxes of old stuff in preparation for last week’s “Unlocking Your Artistic Voice” workshop and came across this page I had doodled back in high school. Going to keep it on my bulletin board from now on. #anaisnin #anaisninquote Getting his greens. 🌱#catgrass My #motherofmillions is dropping her “babies” off left and right. Does anyone want some?
