Rain, rain, go away!

Now I have nothing against rain.  Oh wait, yes I do.  At least, so long as it doesn't progress further than gentle or splopy rain.  (as an aside, the word splopy is not in Merriam-Webster's online dictionary.  I find this an affront since that is the only real way to describe rain that comes down in splops.  harumph!)  Anyway, because it's more of an OMG we've got to pull out the mucking big umbrella and occasionally take down the computers because of lightning (damn you, you evile lightning!) it means that my joints go "Woman!  Woman!  What do you think you're doing?!" meh

Fortunately I found a heated mattress pad last year (the last one in a queen size, which turned out to be a king which only worked on one side when we got it out of the box), the only one left in town.  So we set it up so I have the heated side and my husband has the unheated side (he wouldn't ever use the heat anyway.  The minute I turn it on, zooooooooom, there are cats going, "Why thanks mom!  I thought you'd never get around to fixing the cat bed again!"  Serious.

But last night I was abandoned.  I almost cried because there was nary a cat to sleep with me.  Alas.  I got on my side as I normally do and turned out the light.  After a minute, there was a heavy (but not 15 pound kitten) stealthy set of paws working their way up my body.  My savior!!  Sir Thomas of Snuggle came to my rescue and snugged himself right up against myself so that I could feel him purring.  ::sigh::  It was just what I needed to go over the edge to sleep.

Today's sneak peak, in case you haven't checked out the shop, is from the Wicked Kitty/Woman section:
Oh yes, and I'm still hard at work on the Winter Holiday cards.  I have a few 'Santa' Cards done so now I'm going to do a few Hanukkah cards, more Christmas, some general Happy Holiday, and Kwanzaa.  I'll see if I can't get some of these in today or tomorrow.  My weekend is already booked so if I can't get them in before then it'll have to wait until Monday... all contingent on getting anything from my day job!  Some of my older graphics have been on sale but I need to put them back to regular price now.  BTW the Winter Holiday cards will have their own sections on the main page to make them easier to find!!
